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.

330 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. This one is for the book, but I have some pretty high hopes for it. The pour is a dark brown with some ruby shining through and a thin ring of bubbly head that leaves a couple spots of lace. The aroma is interesting. There is a nice fruity tartness up front with a lingering maltiness throughout. Itís not too shabby, but itís pretty basic in terms of the cherry. The flavor is very cherry dominated. There is a nice tartness to it, but itís surprising that itís got a strong sweetness as well. I like the cherry, but the maltiness is surprising. Iím not crazy about that as a sour beer. The mouth feel is decent. Thereís a good body and a nice carbonation to really help it blend in nicely. This one is pretty good.

Even buiten mijn comfort zone: een sour red/brown. Aroma en smaak van kersen, rood fruit en hout. Zuur met een klein zoetje erin en heerlijk fris. Prima bier ondanks dat het niet mijn favo style is.

Rodebach Grand Cru is one of my favorite beers. Has a very refreshing taste almost like a semi-dry champagne.

TorbenJensen (1457) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2016
The aroma is yeast, clearly brett (slightly musty shed), dried fruits and hard roasted malt. The flavor is deep and exciting by including sour cherries, brett, cranberry and juniper. Sour taste is the main theme and only a very small hops can be traced in the aftertaste.
