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.

Absoluut mijn favoriet in deze stijl! Van het vat vond ik hem net iets minder dan van een grote fles.

Batavi (65) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Rodenbach Grand Cru, uitgeschonken in St. Crispijn bierglas. De kleur is koper roodbruin, met lichtbeige schuimkraag, die snel terugvalt. De geur is eikenhout. De smaak is speciaal en complex wijnachtig, uiteraard licht zurig met tonen van eikenhout, balsamico azijn, maar ook aardachtig, en licht zoet, met tonen van kersen en bessen. De afdronk is waterachtig medium, droog en citrus. Absoluut een heerlijk bier in zijn stijl, wel een bier met karakter, niet aan iedere bierliefhebber besteed.

ForlornHope (147) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Deep red-brown in colour with no real head, only slight foam against the glass. Exceedingly complex aroma of wood, leather, balsamic vinegar and fruit. The taste is also very complex, sweet and fruity before becoming tart and lip-smackingly dry. No real bitterness, this is more of a wine tasting experience than beer. Slight carbonation, acidic and very moreish, tannic finish. Exceptional.

Gorgeous beverage more suitable for when you are in the mood for a glass of wine rather than a beer. Pleasant fruity and earthy sourness all the way from the start through the long finish. Complex and intense are indeed good adjectives to use.

Sour wood smell. The carbonation escapes rather quickly, but the sour carbonated taste becomes a bit more sweetish and malty. The aftertaste results in a super dry, yet pleasantly sour feeling in the mouth. Very round taste.

On tap at the Bruges Beer Museum in Bruges, Belgium. Pours brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of oak, fruit, sour. Taste is surprisingly complex with funk, oak, apple, acidity, sour, berry, vinegar. Very complex and nicely balanced. Fantastic! I now have a bottle in my cellar and I canít wait to try it again.

Great oak smell. Good funky flavor. Too sweet for my taste. Big fruity flavor that is surprising without the addition of fruit.

Bottle that was aged for 3 yrs in my cellar, Merry Xmas. Pours mahogany, thin khaki ring of head. Nose of oak, red wine, vinous grapes, sour cherries and esters. Lots of the same with with tartness, bacterial oak notes, vinous red wine and cherries on the tongue. Lots of rich carbonation and acidity in the back of the tongue.

maekchu (2509) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle nfrom DON store in Kuzuha. Woody nose, with red wine-like notes, caramel, vinegar, and berries. Dark reddish/brown color. Gentle initial sourness, berries, and wood and more wood. Very earthy in mid palate, with a complex dark fruit character. Final moves between light sweet and ripe dark fruit. Medium thin body, moderate astringency. Good, complex flavors and more delicate than most US acid burner sour beers. Itís been a while since Iíve had this, and I had forgotten how good it is.
