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.

V bought this for me in my Vday bouquet. This was delicious, the blend makes for just the right amount of sour. Darker than I was expecting. Not too familiar with the style but this is one of my favorites so far

mgajdaczewa (303) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 12, 2014
Mimo stosunkowo wysokiej oceny lekkie rozczarowanie. W aromacie sporo stajni, winne i wyraźnie owocowe nuty przywołujące zapach malin, generalnie jest na słodko z lekką kwasowością. W smaku z każdym łykiem kwaśność narasta, maleje słodycz, dominuje winna cierpkość, sporo malin, gdzieś w tle końska derka. Spore musowanie kojarzące się z szampanem, dobra pijalność, lekko wodnista tekstura, która jest chyba największym mankamentem tego piwa.

Satyroneto (61) - - MAR 10, 2014
Cor marrom com tons rubi, espuma de baixa formação e baixa persistência com pouco lacing; Aroma frutado complexo de frutas vermelhas (uva, cereja, framboesa, ameixa, cassis) e baunilha que evolui para vinagre e amadeirado intenso com a elevação da temperatura; Sabor de início de vinagre e uvas que evolui para acidez que adormece um pouco a língua; retrogosto levemente ácido; Alta/média carbonatação; não me anima muito para os próximos goles, afinal vinho nao eh muito minha praia. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AdamT (112) - Wilson, North Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2014
750ml bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Dark reddish-brown pour, zero visibility with mostly diminishing off-white head. Virtually no lacing. Sour grape, light dark fruid, watery, port wine aroma, (malt aroma as it warmed). Heavy sour fruit up front with a moderate short red wine sour finish. Light body, dry texture, with flat carbonation.

NeuroPliny (91) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Poured from a bottle into a Trappist glass. Clear dark red brown with minimal off-white head. Aroma is vinegar, prune, dried fruit, yeast, and notes of caramel. Flavour is surprisingly sweet with notes (ripe fruit, fruit syrop, fruit leather), sweet malt, a nice tart finish. Perhaps overall a bit sweet.

Really really good. Clean and oaky. It opens up with a little funk on the palate. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
