A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

draft sampler that poured a darker reddish/brown color not opaque real light whitish head. the nose is strictly a flanders red medium tart and sour. the flavor for me was a bit on the strong side for a flanders red immediate sour and tartness but once I came to my senses is was amazing. very drinkable and delicious. nicely blended. a true sipper of the flanders style. excellent job

Pours a hazy ruby red going to copper color, topped with a small and non-lasting off-white head. Quite strong aroma, soury fruits, grapes abd white wine with some cellar feel. Taste is similar and hat you expect - soury, vinous with some fruity sourness in the finish. Not my favoruite, would prefer a bit held back, but a decent one nonetheless.

Pours brown with decent head which dissipates quickly. Aroma of cherries and blood orange. Flavour is refreshingly sour and rich. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle@home, from Alko, Tampere. Finland. Medium aroma with vinegary berries. Brown color with minimal natural white head and hazy liquid.and medium aftertaste with malts and vinegar. Medium/strong, balanced taste with vinegar, red berries and a hint of malts. Medium taste spectrum Medium body and medium/high carbonation. Overall, refreshing and not too complex or sour.

Bottle from Bon Repas. Pours a murky red-brown, head vanished quickly. Aroma of vinegar, cherries, oak, a deep sweetness like caramel. Lovely flavour, tart and refreshing berries, wood notes, rich fruit juice. Has a real effervescence, quite light with a slight lingering vinous alcohol feel, slightly puckery. Great stuff.

33 cl från Dranken geers. Riktig trevlig öl. Luktar lite gammalt vin men smakar fantastiskt.

Une bière vraiment originale et sympathique ! Un bon goût de bière vieillie en foudre de chaîne. Si vous aimez la duchesse de Bourgogne celle ci a moyen de plaire énormément.
