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 from Bon Repas. Pours a murky red-brown, head vanished quickly. Aroma of vinegar, cherries, oak, a deep sweetness like caramel. Lovely flavour, tart and refreshing berries, wood notes, rich fruit juice. Has a real effervescence, quite light with a slight lingering vinous alcohol feel, slightly puckery. Great stuff.

33 cl från Dranken geers. Riktig trevlig öl. Luktar lite gammalt vin men smakar fantastiskt.

Une bière vraiment originale et sympathique ! Un bon goût de bière vieillie en foudre de chaîne. Si vous aimez la duchesse de Bourgogne celle ci a moyen de plaire énormément.

Keskiruskea, samea olut vaahtoaa kohtalaisesti. Pieni vaahtoreunus säilyy lasin reunoilla. Tuoksu hapan, viinimäinen, kirsikkainen ja varsin makea. Maku hapan, kuiva, kirsikkainen ja omenainen. Melko pitkä jälkimaku on kuivan ja happaman kirsikkainen ja jopa hieman etikkainen. Keskitäyteläinen, loppujen lopuksi aika sokerisen makea suutuntuma.

Vintage 1982: Poured a dark brown with a nice cap of light tan head. Great retention and small tight lacing that is slightly soapy. The aroma and taste are definitely sour but it was not overpowering to me as they tend to me. It is lighter bodied and smooth.

330ml bottle into tulip. pours an opaque brown/red with small tan head. Nose is sour plums, vinegar, dark chocolate. Viscous and fruity in the mouth, raisins, plums, currents. Finish is superb, light red wine and fruit cake. Ends with umami and a refreshing dryness. Excellent beer.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle - Clear reddish amber colour, small but lasting off-white head. Intense fruity and oakish aromas, some sour cherry, dates, fig, apple, wooden and earthy notes. Taste is very complex and well rounded, sour cherry, apple, fig, vanilla, oak, some cereals, red grapes. Extremely well balanced sourness, fruitiness, bitterness and the oak notes make this beer really great. Medium, crisp body, lively carbonation, dry and fruity finish. Great beer, definitely recommended.

Bottle @Strawberry Thief, Bristol. Small head, dark amber/red, lightly hazy. Aroma of oak wood, plum, raisins, a little bit of alcohol. Sour taste, with deep red wine aftertaste. Medium body, thick, average carbonation. Wow, nice, deep aroma and taste, but also drinkable and refreshing.
