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.

Bottle. Nice looking milky pour. Dark brown, big foamy head. Holiday spice sort of aroma: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, but I couldn't really recognize this anymore as it warmed. Spicy-sour flavor with all kinds of fruits, especially apples, citrus, cherries, strawberries. Sharp bite behind all this, what a great beer! Thanks to jbrus.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - APR 13, 2003
Bright bloody red colour, clean appereance, nice creamy head. The aroma is fruity with a pleasant balsamic vinegar trace. The flavour is complex, unique incredibly balanced between a nice sourness and fruity traces (black cherries, pomegranate and black currant), with a delicate bittersweet finish. More than a simple beer: a masterpiece! Now I know which will be the next case of beer I'll order!

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2003 Better than checking out Mr Kelly's arse. Grapefruit molasses and so good soy milk.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2003
Full dark brown ruby color with a head full of small bubbles. Aroma is complex and full of sour cherries and oak. Tart, aged body has a light fizzy mouthfeel and a soft warming bitterness. Hardly any residual sweetness here. Wonderful complexity makes this one of the best Flemish sour ales I've had. Thanks brewbandit!

argo0 (11530) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 31, 2003
Dark brown body with medium creamy tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, prune/raisin, alcohol. Taste is sour (even a bit burnt) cherry, and you want more, yes more!!! This beer is rich and very full-bodied.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 28, 2003
Deep ruby red with a thin rim of foam. Intense cherry/sour aromas. Flavor is also a balance of sweet cheeries and tart, acidic characteristics. Wonderfully balanced.

madsberg (10184) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2003
UPDATED: APR 15, 2003 Bottled: Dark amber. Hazed. Medium lasting head. Has this great mingle of sweet and sour in the aroma, that makes you want to try it. Vinegar and spices in the flavour with a nice sweet touch. Dry in the aftertaste. This must be a perfect aperitif.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Sharp is a good word for this beer. It has a yeasty aroma, with some vinegra type aroma. It looks chocolate in color. Taste pretty sour, but more than that fruity sweet. If you are looking for a sour beer, this by far is my tops.

grease (42) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 2, 2003
This marvelous concoction is a pleasure to the senses that encourages a Pavlovian salivation just thinking about it. This is one of the world's greatest beers! The lactic and ester complexity, as well as the contibutions from oak make this a pleasing symphony of flavors and aromas.

Ungstrup (29283) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2003 Second time around - I liked this a lot better. ------- deep red beer with light brown head that disappears fast. The aroma is very fruity with notes of cherry, kriek, tree and acid. The flavor is acidic sweet because of the mixed fermentation. It has a very powerful start, then a bit watery in the middle and ends with a sharp typical gueze aftertaste.
