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.

Tawny port-achtige geur, maar uiteraard veel scherper, frisser, zuurder. Zoet rood fruitje erbij. Bruinrood, nauwelijks schuim (maar erg koud geserveerd @ St. Jacobscafé Vlissingen). Mooie dikke champagnebubbels, tannine, wijn-achtig, zoetig zuur, afrdronk bitterzuur. Erg prettig. Nog ’s proberen, maar dan op keldertemperatuur.

ERB92 (317) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2014
Fruits, berries, malts and a hint of balsamic vinegar in the aroma. Deep amber colour with a tan head. Medium sweet, light to medium bitter and medium sour. Light to medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall an interesting brew, quite refreshing and easy drinkable.

Fruits rouges, petit nez d'alcool. Plus sur que la rodenbach régulière, plus forte en alcool.

MPA (815) - Amager (form. Nřrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Best before 13 & 16. Brown/reddish with beige head. Head last longer with the fresher sample, which also has a lot more carbonation propelling the tart aromas into ones nose. Malt present in both but the oldest sample leaves a lot more in terms of port aromas and dark fruit, both have a tart flavour with some sweetness, but the stored bottle just leaves a more complex impression and is my favourite. Score for the fresh sample: 8-4-8-4-16. This rating is for the old sample. I would be able to drink more of the fresh beer.

storskurk (108) - DENMARK - SEP 27, 2014
Smagning af en ny og en 3 år gammel Grand Cru. 1 dufter mere syrlig end 2. Meget mere mælkesyre. Ikke så meget krop men meget forfinet og kompleks. Først brus, vildgær, let sødme, let karamelstrejf. Slutter med mellem kropsfylde og en tør finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ĺrgang 2013 og 2010. Syrlig i duft. Meget markant. Den gamle er mere maltet. Rigtig drjlig.

mattyhennessy (319) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber brown with a solid beige head that holds better than any sour I’ve seen. Cherry, balsamic, raspberry and oak on the nose and reflected perfectly on the tongue. Sour astringency that makes your mouth curl, but not to the point of discomfort. Dry finish and very drinkable for a sour. A fine beer

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Drank this sat in the sun on De Panne Beach , pours very cloudy red, taste is tart with a carbonated tang,and hinted at fruitiness, seemed a little thin, maybe I had a duff bottle or I just need to try it again.......apparently hard to find so must buy a bottle while I’m still Here in Belgium

Piana drobnop?cherzykowa. Kolor ciemny zmetniony. Zapach odpowiadajacy zapewne stylowi i le?akowaniu w beczce. Kwaskowate w smaku, orze?wiaj?ce. Pozostawiaj?ce kwaskowaty posmak. Zdaje si? ?e wyst?puje w aromacie aceton.

Lizardking3 (104) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Pours dark red brown, very cloudy and small tan head. Aroma is very grapes and cherries, oak is prevalent and this carries a strong wine aroma. Taste is immediately tart cherries and grapes with a transition into woodiness. Tartness lingers. Very nice
