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.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Earthy cellared aroma reminiscent of Brie rind. Poured deep red with big head to begin with but dissipates quickly. Flavor is earthy with tangy earthy cellar notes of cheese rinds. Excellent mouth feel tiny bubbles with champagne like spritziness. Good beer, but i have enjoyed the flavor characteristics of other sours more.

Emeister84 (1405) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2015
Tart red berry aromas, cranberry-like, somewhat alkaline. Hazy red with deep orange highlights and a small, yet lasting, white head. Pretty sour, a little funky, red berry flavors, some lime-like citrus flavors. Medium bodied.

danielecamo (663) - ITALY - DEC 14, 2014
In bottiglia. Colore marrone con riflessi rubino molto evidenti. Schiuma fine e mediamente persistente. Aroma pulito, acidità in evidenza, frutta rossa sotto spirito, ciliegia, fragola. Al palato scorre bene nonostante la gradazione, sentori legnosi, acidi, di cantina seguiti di nuovo da ciliegia e fragola con finale secco.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
nteresting lightly sour, vinous, dusty, red wine aromas (a bit of redundancy there, but this is free flow). Reddish amber color (with smallish chunks) and no head. Medium body with virtually no carbonation. Flavor is oak, red wine, perhaps some cherry. This is better than many red wines! The finish is oak, cherry pits, and a very light sour.

eduardovl (1021) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 1, 2014
750ml bottle poured in a chalice. A: Beautiful deep amber to brown color with a huge aired fluffy tan head when poured. Small retention and many lacings left. Its head never disappears completely. S: Delicious fruity and acid smell. Raisins and apples mainly. Close to a Lambic. Bit woody with a bready and malty backbone. Fruity esters and yeasts. T: Very fruity. Again, risings mainly. Mild sourness. Absolutely refreshing, spicy and tasty. M: Medium body. Medium sour and fruity aftertaste. Not much alcohol despite of the medium ABV. O: Excellent drinkability. Bellissima birra. Balanced in all senses. Refreshing and, at the same time sour and tasty. [ BA Review @ 12/16/2011 ]
