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.

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.

33 cl från Dranken geers. Riktig trevlig öl. Luktar lite gammalt vin men smakar fantastiskt.

Une bière vraiment originale et sympathique ! Un bon goût de bière vieillie en foudre de chaîne. Si vous aimez la duchesse de Bourgogne celle ci a moyen de plaire énormément.

Keskiruskea, samea olut vaahtoaa kohtalaisesti. Pieni vaahtoreunus säilyy lasin reunoilla. Tuoksu hapan, viinimäinen, kirsikkainen ja varsin makea. Maku hapan, kuiva, kirsikkainen ja omenainen. Melko pitkä jälkimaku on kuivan ja happaman kirsikkainen ja jopa hieman etikkainen. Keskitäyteläinen, loppujen lopuksi aika sokerisen makea suutuntuma.

Vintage 1982: Poured a dark brown with a nice cap of light tan head. Great retention and small tight lacing that is slightly soapy. The aroma and taste are definitely sour but it was not overpowering to me as they tend to me. It is lighter bodied and smooth.

330ml bottle into tulip. pours an opaque brown/red with small tan head. Nose is sour plums, vinegar, dark chocolate. Viscous and fruity in the mouth, raisins, plums, currents. Finish is superb, light red wine and fruit cake. Ends with umami and a refreshing dryness. Excellent beer.

pityu (560) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle - Clear reddish amber colour, small but lasting off-white head. Intense fruity and oakish aromas, some sour cherry, dates, fig, apple, wooden and earthy notes. Taste is very complex and well rounded, sour cherry, apple, fig, vanilla, oak, some cereals, red grapes. Extremely well balanced sourness, fruitiness, bitterness and the oak notes make this beer really great. Medium, crisp body, lively carbonation, dry and fruity finish. Great beer, definitely recommended.

Fullpintofbeer (137) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle @Strawberry Thief, Bristol. Small head, dark amber/red, lightly hazy. Aroma of oak wood, plum, raisins, a little bit of alcohol. Sour taste, with deep red wine aftertaste. Medium body, thick, average carbonation. Wow, nice, deep aroma and taste, but also drinkable and refreshing.

SensejPL (180) - Bia³ystok, POLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle (07.07.2016). Aroma of apple vinegar, and a little bit of fruit wine. Brown-ish colour, and literally no head. Fruity taste - green apple, a little bit spicy. Intense acidic sourness. Medium body, low carbonation. Mouthfeel resembles wine. Very unique and worth trying

Garrold (4018) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle. Wine Rack, Sharrow, Sheffield. Just about clear, ruby red. Thin, dense, lasting, beige head. Nose has old, macerated black cherry. Warmed balsamic vinegar. Notes of fig and dried date. Some sweet cinnamon malts. Smells fantastic. Taste is light, fruity, cinnamon sweet. Earthy, stone fruit dryness. Mostly, though it’s lightly tangy, unripe cherry sour. Smooth, soft mouthfeel. Soft tang. Low acidity. Finishes sweet, and tangy, and lightly sour, and all points in between. One of those I’ve looked at and wondered if it’s a tick, and it was. I think this was less than 3 quid. Wow.

Aus der Flasche getrunken. Tiefes Kupfer mit beigem Schaum im Glas. In der Nase sofort unreife grüne Früchte. Die Fasslagerung hat sicherlich einiges der Säure genommen. Man muss es mögen.
