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.

Pours reddish-brown with a small white head. Cherries and wood in the aroma. Some of the same in the flavor as well as some old sweatsock. Nice tart finish.

Wow...this is my first sour...kind of a kick in the ass. Pours a hazy redish yellow and has a fizzy whte head. Aroma is kind of unpleasant...sour fruit and yeast...but not so much in a good way. The taste...that is more like it...man this is pretty damn good...as long as you sip it. Taste has complex sour fruit and sweet malt...really interesting...and amazingly balanced for what it is. Mouthfeel is much like champagne. This was a pleasant surprise...am I going to attempt to drink a 750ml of it by myself, no. Would I share one with 2 other people again, yes.

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.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Recently acquired bottle from my Brothers trip to Belgium (Thanks!). Why dont they import this truly remarkable brew? Wonderful amber/red in color, nose sour as expected for the style. Taste was superb, sour cherry, slight balsamic vinegar in there too. It finishes as well as the start. If you can get your hands on this, do yourself a favor and buy out the store!

Handypaul (422) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 16, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours clear reddish brown with a frothy head that diminishes quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of sour cherries, balsamic vinegar and dry oak. Initial taste comes on strong sour cherries, lightly sweet but dissipates quickly to a watery palate, average carbonation and a even weaker finish. Better than i initially thought.

rekvium (420) - Odense C, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2015
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.

graziano85 (419) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 23, 2013
Brown, with deep red shine, and yellow/brown head, not big, but dense. Smells wood, and very vinous. Taste is also vinous, with acetic notes too, but not so acid like a geuze. And after this sour taste, there is also some fruit sweetness! Finish is dry, a bit astringent. One of the most interesting beers I tried....unic!
