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.

Bottle from axilla. The beer pours to a nice red-hued brownish body with a nice light tan head. The aroma is light cherry, light balsamic vinegar, oak casks, leafy hops, french bread. The flavor is balsamic vinegar, tart cherries, olive oil, and french bread. Very interesting flavor that blends very nicely. The palate is very carbonated, almost overly so. Tart. Acidic. I’d buy (trade for) this again.

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Has a nice, fragrant sour aroma, like wine. Pretty nice dark brown color, sort of like a cloudy cola, with a bit of head that takes a while to dissapate. Flavor is nice, obviously very sour, vinegary. Has a pretty nice body and texture, and decent carbonation. Overall, a very pleasant surprise.

Had this one as I was dumbfounded and in dismay during my Tampa trip. A great beer with a memory that will never die.

Mukavan makea viinimäinen olut. Sopii erinomaisesti tasoitukseksi parin vahvan tai voimakasmakuisen oluen väliin. Hyvä valinta ihmisille, jotka eivät yleensä pidä tavanomaisista oluista.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2006
Bottle (330ml). via trade with Pintbypint. Poured hazy ruby-amber with an average foamy-fizzy diminishing beige head, lots of dark sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is sour, yeasty and malty - red wine vinegar, sour cherry, cranberry fruitiness, even some brown sugar in the complex mix; I’m finally ready to appreciate this! Taste is very much the same, the sourness is omnipresent but behaved, I get light malt vinegar, some sour red wine, tart fruit, light roast malt and yeast - acidic, lightly carbonated mouthfeel, medium linger - really nice, special - thanks for helping me get another bottle of this, Pintbypint.

unibaren (154) - 8000 Århus C, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2006
Sour, earthy, oaky, bubblegum and a sweet aroma not unlike vinegar but with so much complexity it is almost unbelievable. Appearance is probably the "weakest" part of this beer. Colour is red-brow-amber. It is slightly hazy with medium carbonation and the head is gone pretty fast except for a small ring around the edge of the glass. The flavour is fruity, earthy, sour and almost indescribable. A fantastic beer for the right occasion. Not for quenching your thirst after mowing the lawn, but try it with the finer things in life like frois gras and you will think you have died and gone to heaven....

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Dark reddish brown appearance. Rich cherry jam, sherry aroma. Sweet cherry flavor with tart cranberry and mild candy sugar. Slihtly sour, puckering bite in the finish but essentially seet and fruity.
