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.

beeranarchist (213) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2007
Bottle. Reddish brown, crystal-clear. Very complex aroma with notes of vinegar, redwine, caramel and blackcurrant. Sour and sweet with dry finish and flavour that lasts. Probably the best thirst quencher in the world.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle shared with Ronald and Carita in Finland. Shines in the glass a deep, incandescent chestnut brown. Smells of iron fillings and minerals and conserved fruits. Fresh, uplifting acidic taste that dries the throat out, finishing with a stoney acidic finale.

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.

Melnis (213) - LATVIA - JUN 27, 2014
Skābens, maigi līmīgs un nedaudz sidrīgs, bet tiešām nedaudz. Tumšs - gandrīz bez putas. Ar iekšējo gāzi. Aroma char: mandeļu-rozīņu saldējums

brinehart (212) - Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Beautiful red pour. Funky fruits and just a hint of vinegar on the nose. Flavor is fruity with good sourness mid-palette finishing almost creamy. Sourness is tart cherry and pleasant vinegar. Very little lemon. Refreshing brew. On draft at Flying Saucer in Houston.

Shakesbeere (212) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2011
33cL bottle from Brussels. Smells of complex sour with a lot of fruity notes and some yeast and perhaps a slight bit of cotton candy or candied fruit. Palate is very smooth with light carbonation that jumps around briefly in the mouth before settling in. Taste is exquisite: initially sweet and fruity with hints of cherry and underlying sour, then develops a strong sour dominance before alternating to a candied fruit taste and back to sour in to the finish. An excellent display of flavor dynamics. Finish is moderately sour and dry with a hint of cherry. An excellent brew.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2007
Bouteille, au Bières et cie à Montréal. Bourgogne foncée, presque opaque, mais claire, mousse très mince qui reste, trace légèrement le verre. Arôme intense, sûr, vineux, caramel et fruité. Goût complexe mélangeant le sucré et le sûr, très vineux, notes chocolatées, on détecte le chêne. Corps moyen, effervescence plutôt forte, mais douce. Évidemment un Grand Cru !

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2004
Very dark, tan head which collapses pretty quick. Aroma is cool as all get out, cherries, those evil black ones, and the vinegar overtones everyone speaks of. Already I am worried that I am not at a level to appreciate this one, it's obviously very complex but so different, like the first time I tried a kriek but more so... and I am right, this is weird, but great. The sour is finished with a tart flavour. Very quick and clean completion of the drink off the palate.

beergut111 (210) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle. Pours a amber colour. I have never had anything like this ! When I took the first sip the sourness hit me hard. Its not only sour but also very complex. I dont think I could drink more than one of these at a time, but I will definitely drink it again.

foundmd (210) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2011
750ml bottle. Pours dark ruby brown with a white head that leaves heavy lacing. Aroma of tart fruit with hints of red wine oak and funk. Fantastic tart flavor that’s very balanced and not too acetic. Notes of sour cherries, grapes, bread, yeast, umami, vinegar, and wood. Delicate on the palate with lively carbonation and a lingering tart finish. A world class brew.
