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.

mateuszk (1039) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle. Brown/reddish in colour, nice white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, red wine, fruits oak and some sourness. In taste malty and fruity sweet at first, after that sour, oaky, red wine notes comes. Dry and tart in aftertaste, high carbonation. Realy fruity sour beer. Much better than normal version.

thellgren (478) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 7, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2015 0.33 l bottle @ Bier Bier, Helsinki. Red Brown colour, no head. Smells and tastes something like cognac. I guess it must be the taste of old oak. A really great beer which does not taste like beer at all.
