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.

Smells of rumraisin, red wine, UHU glue, malt and hops. Deep red w/ a yellow head. Very sour, almost chemical. Tight and fizzy.

A dark, fruity, complex brew. Oak flavor is evident, but itís amazingly fruity. A very high quality beer, worth seeking out.

Wow. First sour Iíve tried, and i must say, I love the style. Poured deep cherry red, with a great beige head. Aromaís of cherry and vinegar. When it first hits your tounge, it is a bit sweet, but then it gets tart. very tart. Leaves the mouth with a bitt of woody bitterness. Slightly astringant, but well balenced.

750 ML Bottle. Beautiful bottle. Poured deep red with a thick tan head. Very creamy and nice lacing. Enticing nose with vanilla, cherry, oak, orange, vinegar and red wine. Talk about complex. This beauty of a beer gets smoother as it goes down. Tart cherry combines great with the vanilla and the orange peel. This stuff rocks!

This beer is for adventurous folk only. Actually I liked this guy a lot. I had never had a sour ale before, but apparently this is a fine specimen of the style. My first taste-impression of this beer was that it tated of A-1 steaksauce. This leads me to believe that this beer would complement beef extremely well. There is definitely a very distinct sourness about this beer. Reminds me of the Lambiks Iíve tasted.

Large bottle. Spiritual, in the middle ages monks sense of the word. Sharpness is. Very sharp.

desurfer (1253) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Pours a deep, brilliant garnet with a large fizzy head. Aroma is extremely musty and sour, lots of complex, pungent character, like stepping into an old wine cellar. Flavor is mouth-puckering sour and sweet, with loads of tart cherry. Thereís a background woodiness but itís nicely balanced. Very wine-y in its character. I canít drink a whole lot of this but it is nonetheless delicious.

Bottle. Poured clear brown with a large creamy off-white head that was mostly diminishing with good lacing. Good complex aroma of raisin, port and cask wood. Medium to full body with a dry texture. Moderate sour bitter flavor with a light astringent finish of long duration.
