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.

Gehbe (223) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 8, 2016
Pours hazy amber-brown with a small beige head, half-decent lacing. Nose of red currants, brown sugar, vinegar, apples, a bit of funk and baguette. Tastes sour-sweet, more sour than the "regular" Rodenbach. Fairly high carbonation, medium body. Lovely!

Can appreciate the unique character of the beer but not really a huge fan. Nice ripe fruit aromas but sort of a flat sour flavor.

From the bottle cherries and slight acidic funk dominate the aroma, from the glass vanilla gets stronger. Dark red color, nice head Medium-low sourness, with slight sweetness. A bit tannic, astringent. A bit too highly carbonated for me. Overall a great beer, especially in its low price

puren (693) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - AUG 29, 2016
Prezentacja: lekko zmętnione, wiśniowe, skąpa piana szybko osiada do trwałego kołnierza, nieźle zdobi szkło;
Aromat: kwaśny sok owocowy, czerwona porzeczka, agrest, wiśnia i drewno, nasączony winem korek;
Odczucie: ciało średnie, gładkie, choć szybko rośnie w ustach, jest bardzo puszyste, daje kwaśny finisz;
Smak: porzeczkowe wino z korkową nutą, zdecydowanie kwaśne od owoców, lekko drewniane, z bardzo delikatną owocową ulepkowatą słodyczą i cierpkością wiśni;
Ogólnie: bardzo fajne piwo, kwaśność, drewno i słodycz nie balansują a raczej uzupełniają, co rusz któreś z nich wychodzi na pierwszy plan.

Bottle at home with the wife. Pours a reddish brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart dark fruits, cherry, wood, vinegar, yeast, hint of caramel, the tart/sour character is nice, easy drinking sour.

11.2oz bottle. Pours a rich reddish brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of cherries. Sour taste of cherries, plum, and a little oak. Sourness is balanced well with sweetness. Wine-like finish. Medium carbonation. Great, smooth mouthfeel.

Deviant (6) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2016 does not count
Nice dark brown/amber beer with a fine head. Definitely didn’t expect the sour and sweetness. But after recovering from the shock it turned out to be an amazing fruity beer.

bulldogops (2236) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
Rating #1754 - 2015.06.24 - Bottle at 7degrees Beer School. Pours a deep reddish brown with a bubbly head that disapparates rather quickly. Aroma is berries, wild cherries, sour plum tartness - rich, fruity texture. Palate is well balanced - lots of tart cherry, sweetness from the barrel component, some woody oak components, and a leathery bitter funk note - lovely sour/bruin.
