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.

This one didnt come across as favorably as I expected from a much touted beer from a style that is growing on me. Appearance was fine, the dark red to brown color with a very nice head that laced very well. Aroma was off, too much vinegar, and not enough tart fruits. The flavor was complex, started rather tart and acidic, decent amount of vinegar, somewhat wattered down tasting. Transitioned to a more tart finish with the oak coming through. Finished with some oak and even bready or yeasty hints in the after after taste (wasnt expecting that). Mouthfeel was light and carbonated. Nice, but not my favorite, doesnt hold a candle to Duchesse.

Typical sour ale aroma, sweet and sour, perhaps some notes of lime. Colour is deep red amber, beautiful! Clear. The head is slightly brownish. Flavor is very sour, pretty sweet, like a dry white wine, parhaps some oak? Palate: light to medium body, Dry. Lively carbonation. Finish is dry. Nice one!

Stunningly sour ,but you can smell the casks that they have been aging in tons of off yeast by-products,if your in to this this is the best that can be.Quenches your taste like nothing else.lots of acid in your gut afterwards.Pretty wonderful stuff

Dedollewaitor (14486) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2006
Dark red with fuzzy white head. Bier rouge family. Smell of vinegar & sour fruits - cherries. lively carbonation. Very sour and refreshing. The finish is long and again refreshing and has a little sweetness. Fantastic, but not easy drinkable! "Must taste this style of beer more than once before you judge it" (Oerbier, duchesse etc.)

Pours a clear deep red color with a thick slightly off white head. Aroma of sour cherry. Flavor is full of cherry flavors with a biting sour finish. Surprisingly refreshing on a hot day like this one. Delicious.

If beer nirvana is possible, Id say that I was just a few steps away while drinking this beer. I realize that this beer may offend some people, but screw em. Dont expect your everyday beer here, because whats inside the bottle is amazing. Aroma was sour apples, oak, vinegary, and dark cherries. Appearance is dark reddish brown. Flavors are simply out-of-this-world good. Its tart, sharp, cherries, yeast, and sweet malt. Truly an experience to be shared with others. This has some complexity of an excellent wine.
