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.

Great great sour ale. Pours red with a nice small head. Aroma reminds me of a crayola marker.... In a good way... Fruity with a lot of grape and apple. Nose reminds me of red wine. Taste is fruity like red wine. Grapes and citrus, grapefruit and granny smith apples. A great beer that you definitely have to be in the mood for.

Franckg (1176) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2016
Bouteille sans date. Robe rouge-brune très foncée et plutôt trouble sans col de mousse. Arômes de vinaigre balsamique, jus de fraise, mûre, sucre candi, cocktail de canneberges et cerises noires. En bouche, légère acidité acétique atténuée par un goût de baies sucrées. Surtout de le fraise et mûre encore, jus de cerise noire et sucre candi. L’équilibre des saveurs est impeccable. Finale presque vineuse, un peu comme un vin de cerise. Texture huileuse et corps moyen. Très belle bière.

Drinking blind from a 33cl bottle. Bottle several years old. In the aroma sour, coffee, alcohol, cherries. The clear brown beer has a small brown head. In the taste balsamic vinegar. Low carbonated.

hauxe (411) - Butzbach, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2016
Pours reddish brown from the bottle. Aroma is cherry, sour apple. Taste is up front sour, very sour, with notes of green apple and apple vinegar. Very nice palate: medium bodied, well carbonated but not aggressively so. It goes down easy and the rich smoothness helps balance the sharp, vinegary overtones. Finish is cherry sweet with a lingering tartness. An intriguing beer and all the more so for the intense sour sweet explosion of flavor without any added sugar or fruit. Amazing stuff. That said this is a niche beer for me, and not something I would seek out on a weekly basis.

Ritzn (448) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2016
Almost black with little beige head. Aroma is clove, lots of berries and a grassy ticklish note. Taste is very sweet and sour, reminds me of fizzy tablet. Lots of small bubbles. Very nice.

OnTheTrail (352) - Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Pours dark brown, substantial light brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, plums, raisins, figs, cola, cocoa. A Tangiers that might be vinegar. Taste is sour cherry, plum, toffee, quite tart finish with hints of cocoa and cola. Medium mouthfeel.

Yum raspberr, cherry, port. Sour and tart can imagine it being perfect for game. Very impressed.

Pyobon (1287) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2016
(Bottle) Pours a rather murky dark brown with a thin beige head - not very attractive! Aroma is fruit, funk and vinegar - odd, interesting and slightly challenging. Great palate - smooth, plenty of body and lovely velvety carbonation. Taste is assertive, unusual and very nice. There’s an intense fruitiness - raspberries and berries - and pleasant tartness. There’s also some initial funkiness. A long tart, fruity complex finish. A very impressive beer.

Tjah ... farven er flot. Men derudover er aromaen og smagen som en mellemting mellem en våd hund og en fugtig kælder. Det er meningen at den skal smage således, hvilket gør det vanskeligt at vurdere den. Skal jeg vurdere den ud fra dens egne præmisser eller ud fra hvordan jeg mener en øl skal smage? Jeg vurderer den ud fra egne præmisser, så deraf resultatet.

Pours clear dark red, no head. A plum aroma with caramel, alcohol and candy floss. Distinctively fruit and sour. Fun. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaserov (167) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 9, 2016
Color marron oscuro (peculiar tonalidad), con capa de espuma blanca amarronada mínima. Carbonatación prácticamente inexistente. Aroma a barrica, ácido, champán, vino, avinagrado. Ya te esperas el sabor a través del aroma. Y el sabor que te encuentras es el que esperas pero con un poco más de pegada. Muy ácida, no para todo el mundo, eso desde luego. No solo depende de gustos. Imagino que mucha gente probará esta cerveza y ni la considerará cerveza. A mí poco me importa, me flipa este estilo y esta es una muestra más de lo increíbles que son las Sour. Muy intensa.
