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.

onceblind (6910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Hazy dark Amber/brown with no head, even when poured with vigor. Murky dark Belgian malt aroma with some sour cherries and a twang of lactobacillus. Crisp and red-fruity flavor with a nice tartness about it that’s a little reserved and restrained but very tasty, Oaked, quaffable and complex. The right balance of tart and fruity and malty and funky. Really nice and flavorful.

datrael (160) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 7, 2016
W aromacie dominują nuty winne, owocowe: wiśnie, nieco winogron, czuć też drożdże, zapach jest po części słodki i po części wytrawny, bogaty i złożony; wraz z ogrzaniem pojawia się nuta beczkowa, nieco waniliowa, nieco też drewniana. Barwa bordowa z całkiem sporą czerwonawą pianą, zdobiącą szkło; wysycone. W smaku kwaśne, winne, czuć też nieco takiej cydrowości, z wyraźnymi brettami, do tego owoce, dominują wiśnie i winogrona. Kwaśne, ale nie męczące, ta kwaśność jest bardzo przyjemna, przywodzi nieco na myśl krieka, ale oczywiście nie słodzonego. Ogólnie bardzo dobry kwas o świetnym aromacie, ładnym wyglądzie i nieźle smakujący

Mahogany with bit ruby, practically no head, bit lacing. Bit sour funky and sweet, cellar funk, over-ripe apples, yeast and malt. Light to medium, sweet and sour, long finish, vinous notes, lively carbonation. Balanced, nuanced, good.

Cherries and dark fruit. Very sweet aroma. Dark reddish brown. Thin light tan head that recedes quickly leaving a slight residue on the glass. Crisp and dry like a red wine. Tart cherries. Dark fruit. Very nice.

Pours a clear iced tea brown with a thin white ring. Slightly tart, sour aroma. Very smooth with a tart cherry flavor. Very enjoyable. One of the better beers I tried at the fest.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2016 33cl bottle. Pours hazy reddish brown with a thin light beige head. Aroma is cherries, plums, berries, vinegar, some yeast, some winey note. Taste is similar with excellent fruity flavors, some sweetness, a green apples hint, some vinegar but the acidity is perfectly balanced. Light yeasty spiciness, some earthy cellar notes. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Excellent.
