COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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.

A great beer - one of my favourites. It pours red/brown, whit a small rocky, white head. Sour flavour and aroma of cask wood. Refreshing and dry.

Fantastic beer. Sour and refreshing. Not syrup-y or overly sweet. It is the hallmark of its style.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 bouteille et plusieurs fois !!! j’aime moins l’étiquette maintenant mais la bière j’espère est encore aussi bonne. bu en 2008, le bière n’est plus la même, vraiment surette. Bouteille de 330ml. Bière brune trouble sans mousse. Le nez est de cerises, boisé et complexe. La bouche acide, vineuse, acide et les cerises sont bien présents. Agréable

Guerde (1259) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Pours brown with an off-white head. Slight oaky aroma with a sauerkraut smell as well. Very crisp tart flavor with a slightly dry finish.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2007
Bouteille, au Bières et cie à Montréal. Bourgogne foncée, presque opaque, mais claire, mousse très mince qui reste, trace légèrement le verre. Arôme intense, sûr, vineux, caramel et fruité. Goût complexe mélangeant le sucré et le sûr, très vineux, notes chocolatées, on détecte le chêne. Corps moyen, effervescence plutôt forte, mais douce. Évidemment un Grand Cru !

Has a very cherry / red wine smell. Poors a brownish colour. It has an almost liquer taste. The cherry is a bit strong.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2007
Nose is of sourness, yeast, bread, cherry. Pours murky broen with small reducing head. Taste is sweet with a long malt then very long hoppy/sour finish. tastes much stronger than 6.5% as it goes to work immmediately. Light carbonation, cherries on the palate, and other complex tastes working up to a warming of the tongue and a smooth burst a reduced alcohol. Very nice indeed.

KimJohansen (10406) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 [At Chez Moeder Lambic] Dark red nearly brown beer with beige head. The sour aroma contains balsamico and prunes. Nice sweet sour flavor with hints of vinegar and berries. Nice complex beer that finishes with a delicious acid bite.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Bottle. Ive not had a sour ale so I probably shouldnt rate one. But, pours amber, thin off white head. Smells of spoiled vinegar, tastes about the same. Very sour, but it finishes clean and had a civil cherry after taste. Not my cup ’o tea.
