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.

750ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours a nice brown/copper with a finger-thick head. Aroma is mostly of green apples, but I can also perceive some sour cherries in there, and some slight barnyard aromas in the far background. When it comes to sours, my nose is not that good honnestly...this is really all I can perceive! Taste is medium sour, medium sweet; this is really well done and balanced! Body is medium, texture is rather slick, really nice. Carbonation is average and accompanies the tartness in a nice way. Finish is pretty sour and astringent. Overall, one of the best sours I’ve had, and possibly the best Flanders-type of ale I have every had. Mind you, this is the first genuine I’m having, as the others I’ve had were Quebec-made interpretations. This is the real deal, and it has earned its rating and reputation. A well done, superb sour ale.

TorbenJensen (1432) - 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.

Pours deep red colour with some short-lasting and sizzling head. Sour, cherry, slightly fruity aroma. Medium body. Nice sour but still sweet and fruity, strong taste. Better when warms up a bit.

kacperred (160) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Butelka. Barwa głęboko czerwona, piana delikatna i kremowa, szybko opada. W aromacie dość silne akcenty kwaśne, lekko octowe, trochę "stajennych" dzikusów, bardzo owocowe. W smaku początkowe uderzenie silnego kwasu, które dość szybko przechodzi w specyficzną słodycz, na języku nadal odczuwa się kwaśność. Bardzo lekkie, pijalne piwo, bardzo dobrze zbalansowane.
