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.

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...

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2015 Brown hazy beer, low creamy head that stays on the glass and on the beer for long. Aroma: Red dry wine, fruits (sour peach, red currant), dark chocolate, wood, Smells great. Taste: high sour, flavours of fruits (sour peach, red currant), dark chocolate, red wine. Palate: medium to full body, fizzy, lively carbonation, seasoned (dry) alcohol on the finish. Overall: Brilliant beer. Impressive.

Bottle. Dark brown color with small unsteady head. Aroma of apple vinegar, some champagne-like notes. Taste is heavy sour, but well-balanced and pleasant. Finish is sour and astringent. Interesting beer.

Not a very good beer, very soft and sour, resembles to expired dark wine with hints of yeast.

Mooi roodbruin bier met crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Fris zoetzuur aroma van krieken, hout, rood fruit. Zeer fris bier met die heerlijke zure toets met houten ondertoon. Een van de betere bieren in zijn soort. Zeer lekker !!!

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 Bottle. Pours nice red/chesnut with a beige head. Aroma is sour cherries, tart apple, oak, as well as sweet malty notes. Flavor is mostly the same, the sides of the tongue catch the strong sour notes, while the sweet oaky vanilla hits the front, and a somewhat bitter finish lingers at the back. This beer is just as deep and complex as any wine.
