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.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2014 Clear ruby colour with a thick tan head. Aroma of red wine vinegar, sour cherries, redcurrant and raspberries. At first, taste is slightly sweet but that is quickly replaced by heavy sourness. Thin body, soft carbonation and a dry, tart finish. The fruity aroma and the acidity make it just adorable. Michael Jackson called it "the most refreshing beer in the world". Well, he must have known!

Pours dark brown. Not much head. Smells mostly vinegar. Quite sour. Lacking depth and complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cette bière incontournable dans le style, s’affiche avec une robe brune aux reflets pourpres et ne présente presque aucune tête; pas même si on s’efforce d’en faire apparaître une lors du service. Le liquide se retrouve à vif et de chaudes vapeurs acétiques, boisées et sucrées s’emparent de mes narines enthousiastes! Nez très équilibré et fort plaisant qui ne verse dans aucun excès. J’entame mon verre et l’équilibre entre le bois, l’acidité, le sucre caramélisé et la céréale fermière est tout aussi admirable. De longueur moyenne/longue, cette bière offre sur la langue une pétillance prolongée ainsi qu’un palais léger malgré l’incontestable acidité. Magnifique représentante de son style!

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2005
Pours a dark red-brown with inviting head and tremendous lace. Vinegar, caramel, candy and malt aromas. Dances with palate by way of vinegar and toasty malt thou not with hops. Not as puckering as I remembered, this one begs an array of cheeses.

Aroma is spontaneous, cherries, oak and earth. Taste is moderate sourness, balanced with some sweet fruits, yeast and maybe cherries. Very dry finish.

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.

A dark, fruity, complex brew. Oak flavor is evident, but it’s amazingly fruity. A very high quality beer, worth seeking out.

tasted at the mondiale de la bière in Montréal. pours a ruby redish murky bown with a light pinkish head. aroma is vinous. vinegar, lemon, raspberry and oak. taste is sour, but very enjoyable and refreshing. mouthfeel is light, and carbonated. an excellent beer.
