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.

YigSvartka (142) - Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
Opaque reddish/purple hue. Quickly dissipating head. Aroma consisting of tart dried fruit (particularly cherry), malt, caramel, and mild hop. Mid bodied and smooth. A splendid coalescence of mildly sweet cherry, tart dried fruit, and malt initially, followed by a potent tart and mildly hoppy finish. Quite bubbly throughout. Although quite good, I must admit that my expectations were likely set too high. Still fantastic though.

Cerveza de color rojo oscuro con una cabeza de color beige. Aroma frutal con notas de cerezas, amargo y con toque de madera. Sabor a malta y un poco dulce con toque de madera. Compleja y buena.

Botella. Color rojo oscuro. Espuma rojiza muy clarita, q forma decentemente pero desaparece rapido. Aroma frutas rojas como cereza y frambuesas con un fondo de vinagre y madera. En boca una primera impresión dulce q se torna acida rapidamente, vinagre de vino, algun fruto rojo...carbontacion viva y textura fina. El final algo mas dulce y afrutado. Iniciandome en las sour y hoy por partida doble. Quizas demasiado para un novato jajajajaj

Towey1989 (122) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle from Den Engel, Leek. Hazy ruby brown colour with no head. Aroma is sour and tart, of red grapes, cherries and raspberry, plus a oaky quality. Taste of tart cherries and raspberry, woody maltiness and apple vinegar. Medium bodied and syrupy texture. Long, dry fruity finish. Better, beery alternative to red wine.

TtV (147) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Deep brown, near black with a tiny off white head that fades almost completely. The aroma has sour touches, reminds of Geuze Lambic. Taste is bitter with a dry rinse and develops into a sour aftertaste.

Hallstein (173) - Skogn, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2015
Dark brown. Aroma is almost like red wine; sour, oak, vanilla. Maybe a touch of candi sugar. Mouthfeel is nice. Flavor is red sour candy. Kinda like the sour red fish-hard candy haribo makes. Cherries, strawberries, raspberry. I’m not getting much malts here, mostly fruit.

Pours dark brown. Not much head. Smells mostly vinegar. Quite sour. Lacking depth and complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Przylus (223) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 6, 2015
W aromacie bukiet kwaśnych owoców - wiśni, niedojrzałych malin, wczesnych jabłek. Poza tym klimaty młodego, białego wina. Barwa brunatna, klarowne. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa, niska. Fenomenalny smak wiśni i malin skontrowany słodkimi, białymi winogronami. Fajne wysycenie, bardzo orzeźwiające piwo! Z kieliszka wypełnionego tym trunkiem aż bije szlachetność! W ustach pozostaje dobrze wyważona kwaskowość i delikatna słodycz.
