(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.

750ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Hazy copper color. No head. Almonds, peanuts, earthy, sour, woody, yarrow in aroma. Herbal, yarrow, mint, earthy sour taste. At some point I get dark chocolate as well (just for a millisecond or three). Although I can’t taste alcohol sense of strength is there. Nice one.

750 ml bottle shared by AdamJackson. vintage 2012, Batch 15, bottle 933. Dirty brown with very thin white head. Aroma is funky oak, sour grapes,

Flavor is a tannins grapes, funky cherries, horse blanket, hints of vinegar. The body is on the fuller side with a oily oak texture. Not over the top sour pretty subtle. The finish is all oak. Overall drinkable even for somebody that doesn’t drink sours.

Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2014
2009 Bottle, batch 11, #1548 with a Shelton Bros label shared at Kernel Zwanze day. It pours murky deep mahogany brown with a small dirty beige head. The nose is earthy, wood, damp leaf, light vinegar, dirt, vanilla and soft fruit. The taste is damp wood, earthy, leaf, some acidity, sherbet, berry skin, balsamico and light vinous notes with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not as acidity as one might expect from a sour brown with decent age on it. Solid sour brown by any measure.
