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.

freretoc (686) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 5, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur rousse, effervescence prégnante, quasi pas de mousse. Une bière très acide mais avec une belle attaque sur le pruneau d’agen confit assez longue en bouche il y a un final citronné et pomme verte du meilleur effet.

I really can’t see the point of this beer. Very sour taste...like drinking vinegar.

Still one of my favorite beers, period. As a fairly readily available beer out here in Japan I can’t complain, this takes some beating

SlackerMads (1609) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Hazy brown with a medium sized light brown head. Lots of fruit; black cherries, black berries, raspberries. Light wet wood, plum, prunes, white wood. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and light/medium sour. Both flavourful and drinkable. Medium and quite soft finish that is also a little bit too sweet for my taste.

Muggus69 (1198) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2014
330mL BB 29.10.15 Deep bronzed body, holds a dense beige head. Good complex, funky nose; balsamic & red wine vinegar, cocoa, green apple, roasted nuts, lots of charred & old musty wood, dried fruit undertones. Body is full, creamy carbonation, quite rich with a acetic acid bite cutting through providing balance & length. Such a joyful mix of flavours; dark chocolate malt, caramelised balsamic, cooked & fresh green apples, charred oak, plums, raisins & vinous dried fruits. Wonderful stuff - so complex, confronting at first with a sweet & sour balance but rewarding and delicious.
