COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

aleigator (170) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 21, 2014
Cherry-red color, small head, which vanishes fast. Funky, sour-cherry, with hints of malt. Malt, bread, a lot of cherries, very ripe, full of flavor. Perfect chewy, tart sourness, with a fruity cherry sweetness. Decent complexity, still easy drinkable. Malt underlines the cherries till the end, holding the sourness at bay. Great balance, fruit stays in the foreground the whole time, resulting in a chewy, sour aftertaste.
