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.

For a Grand Cru it is not as complex as one would expect. The low carbonation lets the head disappear quickly leaving a glass of rich sugars that are a bit heavy. Overall it is a nice cheaper Grand Cru.

Dark red with small, beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of apple vinegar, chocolate, vanilla, plums and sour cherries. High sourness. Amazing taste of cherries and plums. Medium body. Astrigency in the finish. Rich, great sour red

wihlan (403) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2014
Flaska hemma - fin lite offwhite skumkrona. Doftade inte särskilt mycket och den var fruktansvärt sur. Om den inte varit så sur så hade det varit en riktigt bra öl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2004
Dark mahogany colour, very small and quickly disappearing head. Interesting aroma, uncommon taste (first time I tried something pretty sour) but not totally my thing, I missed something to compensate for the sourness.

FireGlider (403) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 4, 2016
Some strange mix and color leveling between brown, orange and red , with small brown fast disappearing head. Smell is somewhere between red wine and Belgian ale. When you start drinking it you expect that wine like sourness will kick you. But the sourness is well balanced with fruity and sugar sweetness. Body is light to medium with nice lasting light wine sourness in aftertaste. I was expecting richer flavor. This is my first sour so, ATM I am not big sour connoisseur, but this one is some nice mix of sour and Belgian ale.

Ulysse (402) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2014
Fruity and roasted malt aroma. Light sourness. A special aftertaste comes long after the sip. It reminds of oven dried olive in the pizza.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Light mahogany in color, with a slight off-white head. The nose is an interesting mix of sour, bubblegum, Concord grapes, cherry pie filling, and soy sauce. The taste comes off in a similar fashion, with strong sour cherry coming on strong. Quite interesting and a really neat thing to taste.

330ml bottle from The Beerhive. Small off white head, light bubbly lacing. Cloudy reddish brown body. Nose is sour apples and cherries. Flavour is sweet and sour at the same time, apple, cherry, tart lemon. Bit of a wine flavour on the finish. Great mouthfeel, light carbonation with a big swell on the tongue, dry finish. This is magic.

From tap. Pours hazy brown’ish/red’ish, with an off white head. Aroma of sour berries, hints of vinegar, currants, lots of acidity. Taste is huge on the red berries, tart, vinegar, bubblegum. High drinkability.
