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. Reddish brown, crystal-clear. Very complex aroma with notes of vinegar, redwine, caramel and blackcurrant. Sour and sweet with dry finish and flavour that lasts. Probably the best thirst quencher in the world.

Dedoulequeen07 (135) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2007
A nice cloudy brown colour with a thick beige head. Fantastic sour, horse blanket aroma with oaky citrus bursts. Highly carbonated giving a great mouthfeel. Tart citrusy with pungent sour sherbet lemon and gooseberry flavour. Hints of sour berries and dusky fruits. Execellent drinkable beer

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 8, 2007
750mL bottle, courtesy of my brother. Pours a clear mahogany color; off-white head with good lacing. Tart, dried fruits and cherries in the aroma; a toasty oak presence; slightly funky. Lively carbonation. Full, tart cherry mouthfeel: dense red fruit, with a toasty vanilla presence; medium acidity and sourness; very drinkable; dense, tart, creamy Flemish sour. Medium finish: slightly buttery and metallic; showing tart cherries and red fruits.

Pours a cloudy brownish in color with a small white head. Extremely sour, vinegary aroma. Sweet and sour flavor with a very light finish. Very tart. I just donít know if Ican get used to this style. Good for what it is, but not a favorite.

Medium head, light lacing, and amber red in color. A sour/tart aroma with a fruity tart cherry candy taste and medium body. Surprisingly dry. Refreshing, I really enjoyed this one.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2007
Dark, red-brown, beige head that disappears rather quickly. The sour aroma spread around the table nad I fearfully let the glass meet my lips, as Iím reassured by the name, that tells me this must be good.... Iím very new to this type of beers... The first sips makes my tongue, palate and lips contract, so I must look pretty much has a henís butt-hole. But after the first sips of cultural chock my mouth gets used to this beer and the vinegar notes are much friendlier... But then what?? Weeeellll, itís a very complex flavour wit many notes. I recognize cherries and fruit, and my thoughts go to a slightly sweet/sour kriek. The finish is refreshing, acidic and gueze like. Itís definitely an exciting beer, and I actually liked it a lot more that I expected, going as far as to say itís really nice!!
