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.

Pours a dark red with a decent head. Flavor is full of tartness, with a symphony of medium malts and dark fruits just behind it. Really a great beer, on par with Duchess de Borgogne, one of my favorite beers. If you like sour ales, you have to try this one.

THE supreme sour beer, not too sweet. not too sour. Not as complex as when the bottles were wrapped in paper but still good nonetheless.

This is an excellent beer and may turn me away from Lambics. Itís got a nice nose, an excellent sour fruit mouth, an a very thin head. Iíll be drinking more of this and will probably have a few bottles in my luggage on my return.

SinH4 (146) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 7, 2014
On tap at Erzbierschof. Beautiful dark ruby color with nice foam. Aroma is sweet-sour, fruity (apples, cherries, nonripe gooseberries), nicely complex. Taste is both sour and sweet, but not too sour. Awesome complex finish with a little caramel or honey. Great mouthfeel, medium carbonation and body. Very balanced. One of my favourites!

Great beer! Very tasty with a nice fruity background. Should be experienced. Nice one to have with a dessert or with beef!

Dark amber, with a little bit of reddish colouration, nice thick head. Aroma is of burnt caramel, oak and tree bark, also some fruit, mainly cherry. Very good tartness and resiny oak, heaps of cherry and a little grapefruit flavour.

Lele (139) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 15, 2014
Schiuma leggermente beige, fine e molto persistente. Colore ambrato scuro un poí torbido. Al nato si avvertono note acide, simili proprio allíaceto. In bocca si avverte un acido di classe, una sorta di mela acida e crauti. Si avverte anche un legnoso di classe. Alla fine della bottiglia, perÚ, un poí stanca. Giudizio complessivo: una piý che soddisfacente Sour Flemish Ale.

LanceUppercut (139) - SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2009
A nose of soap, cherries and red wine. Taste is very acidic and itís basically the same as the aroma. I donít quite understand lambics and sours yet, but this is interesting and quite good.

Had this one in Brussels... I really enjoyed it; not too powerful, but nice and tart. Dry finish... good stuff

Bottle... itís a very complex beer that I just didnít really get on first tasting. Itís not that I didnít enjoy it - it just didnít wow me. Iíll give it another go eventually.
