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.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
pours a chestnut colored brown with hints and highlights of ruby. When poured vigorously, a nice 1’’ head was produced. A dense foamy head that fades quickly. The aroma is that of tart and cidery with hints of church pews. Tastes tart and cidery. Hints of a good wine too. A touch of oak barrels. Light lactic tartness is refreshing. Some fruity tones are evident. A refreshing, thirst quenching beer.

Saeglopur (272) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle at Känguruh Pub, Vienna. Dark red body, with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is sour, with ripe fruits, cherry, tart, earth. Taste is dry, sour and sweet at the same time and in a great balance, with about the same aromas, also wine like, wood, some caramel. Mouthfeel is medium, with a medium, smooth carbonation and it finishes long, sour-fruity, dry. Tasty! Complex full and refreshing at the same time. The fruit and tart notes are delicious and become more complex the more this beer warms up.

kermis (4796) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle at De Paas. Pours red brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of overripe fruits, tart red berries, caramel, sweet malt, raisins, a little barnyard funk, wood and a little apple. Flavour is over moderate sweet and moderate sour. Full bodied with light carbonation. Excellent. Had many times but this is the first time I actually rate it.

SteC (135) - Oostende, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2014
When pouring in the glass, this beer yields a modest ivory head that soon disappears. The aroma is slightly fruity-sour. The taste is very complex ranging from fruity over sour to malty, with quite some alcohol punch. This is a beer not for every day, but very complex and a nice example of a Sour beer without being too sour.

electrotype (206) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
Surette et imprégnée de goût de cerises. C’est une version améliorée et moins sucrée d’une Duchesse de Bourgogne, pourrait-on dire. C’est très agréable comme bière quoiqu’il pourrait y avoir un peu plus de complexité pour m’envouter davantage!

Bottle. Dark ruby with a off white head. Aroma is red wine and cherry. Taste adds some oak, light must and tannic presence. Medium sticky mouthfeel with almost no carb. Outstanding.

Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly clear red orange color. Thin ring of off-white head. Awesome dark fruit, cherry, light wood notes. Light woody spice. Good sour taste, moderate sweet. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick, light dry. Awesome to finally try this classic. Definitely meets expectations.
