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.

Guruhso (111) - DENMARK - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle. Aroma of dark fruits, oak and vinegar. The flavour is heavy sour. Lingering taste of redwine vinegar. The body is medium and the texture is sticky. Average carbonation. Almost like a red wine.

Ippopodio (112) - ITALY - JAN 23, 2016
Un bel colore marrone scuro con riflessi rossi che corrono lungo i bordi del bicchiere. La schiuma è poca e poco tenace. Al naso un impatto acetico lascia presto il posto ai sentori complessi di frutti scuri in macerazione. In bocca il dolce va a braccetto con l'acetico e il corpo medio e la lieve carbonazione rendono la bevuta meditata e suadente.Il finale è lievemente appiccicoso, ma comunque abbastanza netto da invogliare la bevuta.

McSherman (429) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2016
Tolle rotbraune Farbe, leicht trüb mit weißem Schaum. Der Geruch ist malzig, säuerlich und erinnert an trockenen Sherry. Der Antrunk ist erfrischend säuerlich und erinnert an milden Balsamiko. Der Körper ist schön malzig mit einer fast cremigen Textur. Die Holzlagerung rundet das Aroma deutlich ab, typische Noten von Toast und Vanille sind präsent, ohne zu dominieren. Tolles Bier, sicher aber nicht für jeden Tag, geschweige denn für jeden Geschmack.

Maris (1269) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 16/1/2016. Pours a murky dark amber with a small head. Has a distinct tart sour nose, with a hint of vinegar. The taste is quite intense with lots of dark fruit, featuring a mixture of sweet, tart and sour. Full bodied with average carbonation. Really well balanced and enjoyable. A bit more full on than the standard Rodenbach, which I also think is excellent.

Prevalenza di toni acetici. Molta complessità a naso, con acetico, maltato, caramello, sughero. In bocca protagonista il diacetile.

Moravius (948) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2016
Flasche (33 cl) vom Bierzwerg-Versandhandel. - Tiefes Braunrot, trüb; kurzlebiger braungelber Schaum. - Nase erfrischend süßsauer mit Noten von Boskoop, Johannisbeere, Schwarzbrot und Anklängen an Balsamico und Holz. - Ungeniert fruchtig (Johannisbeere, Sauerkirsche) und für ein Bier ungewohnt sauer mit einem zarten Essigstich, aber auch beträchtlicher Restsüße, ähnlich wie Boskoop-Äpfel, die bei aller Säure ja auch noch recht viel Zucker haben. Erinnert mit mild astringierenden, zart muffigen Noten an trockenen Apfelwein. Perlend rezent, erfrischend schlank. Mild herber, schwach holziger Abgang mit ein wenig Muff und Kellerluft. - Sehr schönes Bier, auch leicht zu trinken. Trotzdem ist mir ein gut gehopftes fränkisches Kellerbier lieber.

Surferp (5) - New York, USA - JAN 10, 2016 does not count
taste of plum immediately followed by vinegar/sour. it's a good sour beer but I'm not a fan of the initial plum/raisin notes. I'll stick with my favorite Gose beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a Geordie Schooner glass. Dark, clear brown with a cream colored head. Aroma is quite tart with some fruity notes, perhaps cherry?, and some alcohol. Flavor is a nice blend of bready and nutty malt flavors with tart sour cherry. Medium bodied with nice carbonation and not overly dry. Nice sour and easy to drink.

Great aroma. Pours a nice red color. Very refreshing! This is a great beer for a hot day.
