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.

Wow this sure is one sour bastard! Don’t drink it when it’s too cold. Beautiful color, sharp soury taste. I do love sour ales a lot although I haven’t taste much different kinds. This one was very good. Looking forward to taste new ones.

On draft at Monk’s Cafe in Philly. Tart, tangy and fruity. Overpowering at first sip, but actually quite pleasant as it progresses.

Pours a deep rootbeer/amber color with short-lived tan head, absolutely no lacing. Wonderful aroma of apples, apple cider, (exotic fruits?). Light taste of apple cider swiftly turns sour apple and apple vinegar. Finishes sour sour sour! Interstingly complex, will try with seafood next time.

Draft: 8/17/13 at Rocco’s. Nice and sour upfront, almost a sweet finish. Light, but still substantial. I’m a fan.

Nice red brown colour, minimal head. Well balanced taste between sweet at the start and sour in finish. Hints of balsamico, oaked red wine, raisins, cherry and other red fruir. Recommended.

Countless 33cl bottles sampled (most of the time) from a Rodenbach glass. Ruby red colored brew with 2 fingered head with medium retention and which leaves a lot of lacing. Smells of forest fruit and oak and resembles the smell of sweet red wine or port. Tastes sour, bittersweet and fruity. Mouthfeel is sour and the brew has a medium body and medium/high carbonation. In comparison with standard Rodenbach, this brew is more sour and has more body. This brew, together with standard Rodenbach, is the brew that got me into beer other then pilsner. I had some Abbey Doubles and Triples in the past, but never really got into it. So this brew is special to me since it opened me up to a world filled with beer :). It?s an intense brew which you love or hate. I truely love it!

ok, so your running a trianthalon, you see your buddy holding out a cup of that water they alwasy seem to have on hand. As you reach for the water, he pulls it back, and your grandpa, surprisingly strong for his age comes out of nowhere with an aluminum lousiville slugger, which doesn’t evenr exist, and crushes your jaw. this smells like vinegar and tastes like what the devil would call "sour."

Pours dark reddish brown with light head. Smells of red currants and berries. Medium body, good carbonation. Tart, with a flavour of currants and muscadines and a long finish. A great bottle of beer.
