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.

Ulteriore approccio alle sour ale..anche stavolta va capita..bruna rilfessi vinosi e schiuma beigea grana media,persistente..aroma dominato dall’aceto e dal malto (in sottofondo)..gusto sbilanciato sull’aereo..luppolo zero..finale però molto particolare..secco e dolciastro..vedremo se ci saranno altri tentativi! Per ora alla fine non è male

Smagen er frugtagtig lidt ovre i noget vinagtig. Den har en rigtig sur smag, men med noget frugt i så den er ikke så slem.

Slubgob (264) - West Hartford, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Thought I had rated this... Tap. Fake brown, moderate cream colored head. Mostly light vinegar nose. In the mouth, sour but not overly so. One not, though, all I get is something like a mix of Apple cider and malt vinegar. Pleasant, just not complex. Slightly sticky finish, touch of malt, fades quickly.

Reddish brown pour, off-white head. Nose is fruity, woody, cider, balsamic vinegar, minerals. Medium tart mouth, toasted bread, grape must, wood. Decent sour.

This was my first beer of this style and after a few seconds I realized I really liked it. A bit like a Gueuze with its sour components, but more complex in taste. Wood, berries, minerals ... Real good!

Clear, dark brown liquid, average head. Sweet aroma with hints of wood. Full body, little carbonation. Taste is sweet and a bit sour.

Beers0mniac (79) - Joensuu, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Dark ruby-brown color with minimal beige head. Intense sour nose with fruits like a wine. Flavor follows the aroma, strong sour taste with fruity finish. Soft carbonation.

GTAEgeek (1665) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2015
On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours a dark, ruby brown, with a medium, creamy, persistent head. The initial aroma is balsamic vinegar, with strong notes of vanilla, dark cherries, and caramel. Sweet and decadent, with a light, wonderful sour flavor. Light to medium body, lightly syrupy, crisp, and clean. This is a simply perfectly balanced and blended dark sour. Easy, complex and layered, venous, and delicious.

C’est comme du cidre, ça sent le raisin et ça pétille comme du champagne mais c’est une bière d’une couleur brune. La mousse ne persiste pas. Une bière qui change.
