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.

Bottle: Dark amber color, virtually no head. Aroma sour, some sweet fruity notes, and a bit of wood. Flavor, apples, some spice, a pleasent sourness to it. Reminded me a bit of Panil. The sour was there, but not overbearing. Very drinkable, I need to buy more.

Aurelius (4651) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Vinous, vinegar and leather aroma. Woody, red-brown beer, fair label. Smell reminds me of elementary school somehow - new oil paint? Sure enough, sour. Mild metal, moderate astringency. Krieky. Medium sweetness. Well done, but I’d heave if I had a belly full of this stuff. Boozy in the tart finish.

be prepared to pucker up....A dark reddish brown with a fairly big head and good carbonation. Aroma is of sour fruits, vinegar, wood. Taste is sour fruit and vinegar, with an acidic finish. Give me a rolaids! then give me another sip...

Champagne bottle. Aroma is sour with caramel sweetness and some acidic notes. Color is a redish brown, somewhat cloudy with a thin white head. Flavor is dominated by sour and acidic...acidity is strong into the finish, which isn’t great...not nearly as smooth and clean as the Duchess. Overall, a very sour and acidic beer...great, but a little too acidic to balance out.

I’m still new to the flemish sour ale style, but this beer took me by surprise. Its got a very unique aroma of wood and yeast. The taste is of sory cherries and tart citrus. taste is smooth. I probaly wont be drinking Flemish sours on a regualr basis , but this is one I could have every once in a while.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 The aroma is very sour with vinegar and berries. The appearance is a nice deep red with a small head. The flavor is very sour with vinegar up front, malt in the middle and cherries at the end. Also it is rather acidic. The palate is typical for the style. Overall it fits the Flemish Sour Ale style but I don’t like it.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2006 Dark reddish brown slightly cloudy body with a large beige head that vanishes, leaving sheets of lacing. Nose of a Belgian sour with some sweet fruit, cherries rather than berries, I thought. Taste of sour cheeries, grapes, vanilla and woody oaky overtones from the aging. Long sour and bitter finish. Perfect with Alsacian Charcroute Garni — indeed, the sourness of the sauerkraut makes the beer almost sweet. Again, sweet fruit and oak, but the dominant flavor is definitely Flemish sour. // I just tweaked the rating on this one to normalize it. It’sjust a little better than some of the other beers I rated as a 4.2 so I needed to get it up to a 4.3.
