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.

Taste is mainly sour cherries, a slight bit of vinegar as well, but the tartness is offset by a sweetness. Good beer.

Ambro206 (272) - ITALY - MAY 11, 2015
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2015: Birra color rosso intenso interessante ma forse un po troppo levigata, poco entusiasmante. Gli aromi di frutta (prevalentemente ciliegia) legno e latte acido. Equilibrata lungo tutta la bevuta. Corpo medio e carbonazione media.

Reddish brown pour from 22oz bottle from Blackwells. Off white head. Sweet, apple, cherry, musty, and flowery aroma. Taste is cherry, tart, grape, a tad vanilla, and apple. Flows like water, so smooth and delicious. One of the best of this style that ive had.

Mackeon (148) - - MAY 8, 2015
This is a very fine beer indeed. There is so much going on when you taste this, its hard to describe. It has a fantastic aroma, its sour and sweet, it has good body, and a lovely oaky finish. A real classic, unique in its kind, and no other in the style comes even close.
