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 Den Engel, Leek. Hazy ruby brown colour with no head. Aroma is sour and tart, of red grapes, cherries and raspberry, plus a oaky quality. Taste of tart cherries and raspberry, woody maltiness and apple vinegar. Medium bodied and syrupy texture. Long, dry fruity finish. Better, beery alternative to red wine.

TtV (163) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Deep brown, near black with a tiny off white head that fades almost completely. The aroma has sour touches, reminds of Geuze Lambic. Taste is bitter with a dry rinse and develops into a sour aftertaste.

Hallstein (200) - Skogn, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2015
Dark brown. Aroma is almost like red wine; sour, oak, vanilla. Maybe a touch of candi sugar. Mouthfeel is nice. Flavor is red sour candy. Kinda like the sour red fish-hard candy haribo makes. Cherries, strawberries, raspberry. I’m not getting much malts here, mostly fruit.

Pours dark brown. Not much head. Smells mostly vinegar. Quite sour. Lacking depth and complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Przylus (318) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 6, 2015
W aromacie bukiet kwaśnych owoców - wiśni, niedojrzałych malin, wczesnych jabłek. Poza tym klimaty młodego, białego wina. Barwa brunatna, klarowne. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa, niska. Fenomenalny smak wiśni i malin skontrowany słodkimi, białymi winogronami. Fajne wysycenie, bardzo orzeźwiające piwo! Z kieliszka wypełnionego tym trunkiem aż bije szlachetność! W ustach pozostaje dobrze wyważona kwaskowość i delikatna słodycz.

Procent (243) - POLAND - FEB 3, 2015
W aromacie winne, octowe, owocowe (wiśnie), lekko alkoholowe, likierowe. Aromat bardzo przyjemny. Kolor burgundowy, piana niewielka, jest jakiś lacing. W smaku intensywnie kwaśne, także czuć ocet w tle, jest wiśnia, chociaż bardziej wiśnia w likierze. W ustach piwo jest aksamitne, gęste, wysycenie wysokie. Bardzo dobre!

Terecht het grotere broertje van de "gewone" rodenbach. Complexer en voller.

Nice tart flavor. Drank very much like a wine. You get a bit of barn yard funk and complexity from the various bacterial strains.
