COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Editor’s note) Originally this version was available for the American market, while in Europe a version less sour was available; as of today, only this version of Sour is produced, so if you got a recent vintage you had this one.
The Sour has a sticker to differenciate it from the sticker-less Barriquée Mild, which has not been inoculated with lactobacillus bacteria.

adrian910ss (2548) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2008 750 ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a thick beige head. Aroma is very sour,almost vinegar like, with hints of misty dark rotting wood, cherries and wine. Taste is all SOUR. At first sip, it feels like vinegar. After the flavor sets in the taste buds, hints of cherries and other musky fruits can be detected. Not a fan of these sour ales, as they are more wine like to me than beer.

Pours reddish brown with little to no carbonation. Taste is oaken barrel, mild sourness, slightly lactic, with some mustiness and horse blanket. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, dry with no carbonation, and only slightly acidic. Enjoyable, and interesting, but I wish it had carbonation.
