ApariBuen aroma, ligeramente acido, vinagre, madera. Se percibe ligeramente notas a levadura. En apariencia color obscuro profundo, cuerpo redondo, corona de espuma media de baja retencion. En boca suave, ligeramente acida peroo bien equilibrada. Al paladar en primera instancia es seca y ligeramente acida. Posteriormente tras el paso por la lengua se equilibra para dejar paso a sabores frutales principalmente cerezas y nuevamente al caracteristico sabor ácido originado por la guarda en barrica. En resumen una cerveza más seca y fuerte que lo acostumbrado, sin embargo agradable y la cual se debe consumir con tranquilidad para apreciar cada un de sus diferentes sabores.

Beautiful, deep amber color, with a head that disappeared almost immediately. Slightly sour aroma; reminds me of weak apple cider. Mild malt flavor, and one can certainly tell it was aged in oak barrels. Light palate, and good carbonation. Quite refreshing.

beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Pours with a thick off-white, tan lace. Redish caramel color. Hints of green apples, very malty taste. Finishes clean with no burn or aftertaste. Nice but not great beer.

BazookaJoe (235) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Pours dark red with a nice sour/tart aroma. Body is not as flavorful with no tartness and just a little but of caramel malt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice brown with little head. Nose is clear on oak, with malty taste and woody, slightly sour. Nothing special, but not bad.

Holy god, I’m impressed. I’m really surprised with it’s low score after sitting down and enjoying this. Wonderfully sessionable, slightly sour brew, that impressed me most with its creamy, almost frothy, and oily mouthfeel. If you want to have a friend step into the sour end of the pool slowly, I’d say this is a great way to do it.

grandridge (224) - Port Clinton, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Pours deep brown with hints of amber. Head disapears as I pour this brew into my trappist glass. Aroma: dark malts, wood, vinegar. Mouthfeel is watery. Woody flavor with sour lemon notes that get you right on the sides of your mouth. I like this brew, I only wish it was meatier. Maybe slightly underrated at 76%

Rich frothy head, cherry aroma. Dark clay color. Sweet flavour, also sour but not tart sour. Malty, cherry flavour. Not refreshing but certainly interesting.
