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: MAR 1, 2009 Cherry on the nose along with oaky notes and sourness. The taste is sour with sweet malt in the background, cherries and wood. Sharp as a razor but very balanced, refreshing and very unique.

Pours clear brown with a large offwhite head mostly lasting with some lacing. Dipped the nose and summer was all over, lots of flower and cherries packed in a malty caramell sour mess. A sip on it revealed flavor of coffee and sweet berries. Medium body with rather high carbonation. An excellent brew.

A beautiful mahogany/red with a tan head. Aroma is cherries, a bit of vinegar. Flavor’s got lots of sour berries, but a bit of malty sweetness as well. Sour finish.

Fantastic beer. Sour and refreshing. Not syrup-y or overly sweet. It is the hallmark of its style.

Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin egg white head, that clears fast. Wonderful sour aroma. Complex medium sour flavor. Difficult for me to describe, but this is an astounding beer.

ABT_S54 (256) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
33cl in a wine glass. Pours a dark red colour with a slightly yellowish head. Very good for the style with it being a lot smoother than Duchesse de Bourgogne but with a little less character. Hard to choose between them but after a back to back tasting I decided (by a small margin) that I would rather have the Duchesse. This may be down to the rather excellent label though...

Bottle. Reddish-brown beer with a slight haze. Aroma is slightly sharp, with hints of fruit. Taste is similar with strong suggestions of cherry and raspberry. Very tart taste. Do not taste hops but there are a lot of flavour sensations in this beer that I would be challenged to describe in words.

TampaBeer (256) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2007
sweet feathery jesus this is sour. The sticky sour aftertaste gets more and more unpleasant. Aroma of cheap wine/vinegar. Almost non-existent palate. I couldn’t finish it.

I can’t thank the LCBO enough for releasing this beer. Reddish brown colour with very little head. Incredibly tart on the nose and in flavour. Notes of sour cherry, vinous and delicous.
