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.

33cl bottle. Clear, dark brown pour with minimal coffee head, little to no lacing. Aromas of grapes, green apples and brandy. Taste is dry, lightly sweet, little to no bitterness. Really lively palate, fresh carbonation. Aftertaste is sophisticated and fresh, but warm in a lots-of-alcohol -way. Great stuff.

Bottle at home. Pours reddish brown, beige head. Sour and sweetish, fruits, cherry, wood, vinegar. Taste is vinegar, oak, tart berries, quite sweet. Somehow leaves a bit bland feeling. Is it because there are so many good sours nowadays? I liked the regular version more, or then it is time.

Let me start by saying, I'm not a fan of sours. This pours a deep red with a moderately persistent light tan head .... mine doesn't not have a pink hue. The nose leans strongly toward a Chardonnay with some cherry. The flavor was surprising, grape forward with cherry and a nice malt support. Finishes with a fizz with a reminisce of Champagne. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cloudy dark brick/oxford brown with nice highlights and small pinkish beige head that fizzes away immediately. Very fruity aroma, green and red grapes tending toward vinegar, with malt and slight oak notes. On the palate, it’s very much cherries, tart but not puckering, with strong carbonation. But the cherries lead back to vinous flavors; definitely more of a wine character than the regular version. Dry finish, quite refreshing for those who like sours.

Bottle 0.33l. Cloudy dark brown with a hint of red color, beige pinkish soft head. Sour and wine smell. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of vinegar and can’t taste anything else. Could be good in a salad maybe.

Pours clear brown with small off-white fully diminishing head. Aroma is heavy vinegar, medium malty. Taste is medium sweet, medium sour. Easy to drink, somewhat refreshing. Body is medium, texture is almost oily, lively carbonation. Leaves a smooth mouthfeel.
