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.

Wow was this a unique beer! I have never had a flemish sour, and man did this nock me off my feet. The aroma was very funky cheese, with acidity and a little bit of fruits. The taste had some of that same acidity with a little bit of vinegar to it. Fruits also came through in the taste, and boy was this stuff sour with a mouth puckering and cheek collapsing effect with evry sip. Overall the beer was very interesting and good/refreshing in a weird way. I dont know that I will drink flemish sours all the time, and I dont think I can really handle a whole 750 ml bottle of any flemish sour, but it was good, it was ineresting, and I am glad I tried it.

Eructoblaster (3541) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2006
Bottle. Nice dark amber body with a thin off-white foamy head. Complex malty/hoppy aroma with oaky and fruity notes. Its sour taste carries various flavors of berries and hops, with some woody, caramel and even subtle black chocolate hints. Ends with a sharp, strong, long fruity/sour finish. Excellent example of Flemish Sour Ale.

[bottle] Brownish red color, with a bubbly, tan head. Nice aroma of sour cherries, vinegar and slight wood. Flavors are nice and sour up front, with some sharp berries (cherry, blackberry), and vinegar. Finishes very dry and sort of musty. Very nice.

blu (11) - Villorba, ITALY - SEP 8, 2006
Bottled 33cl. Dark copper in color, beige colored head, medium quantity, medium persistance. A minimum but fine perlage. The acetic is dominant in aroma and flavour with relevant notes of red fruits (cherry), orange and biscuit? (from the nose), vinegar and pepper. Medium body, long finish, extra dry. I like it a lot!

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2009 Tap: Pours a reddish brown with a tan head that fades quickly. Has a sharp aroma of raspberries, oak, passion fruit, and a funky hint of barnyard. It’s acidity nice and sharp. It has plenty of raspberry fruitness. Has a nice subtle oakey aspect. It’s very slightly astringent, which makes me curious about older vintage versions.
