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.

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 doesnít 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.

Appearance: Medium to little head, slightly brown in color. A very deep copper hue, almost black at a first glance, with a little ruby reflection. Aroma: Intense, vinegar at the front, then notes of honey, a hint of spice and also a note of cherry. Taste: Starts surprisingly sweet, but in an elegant and light way, then immediately tartness adds up, sharp to the point of giving it a spicy zing. The sweetness and the tartness balance each other very well. Good body, considering the low alcohol content, with a lively carbonation that keeps everything lovely. No bitterness, the honey notes come back in the taste. A long, discreet, sour, with a little sweet note, finish. Good.

This is a soft sour beer with a fruity , forestlike (pine) nose. In taste itís mainly sour but also very fruity. Nice sour aftertaste with again a hint of fruit. For people who think Rodenbach is too sour this is definitly worth trying!

Fantastic and bright sour. Full flavor. Balanced beer. White grapes and hibiscus and apple cider all come through. Finishes leaving a blanket coating the tongue.

Great sour beer. Picked it up at Bottleworks in Wallingford (Seattle) - a great recommendation by their staff.

Another complex beer that I bought for the xmas tastings. Will have to try this a couple of more times :-) before I can give a proper verdict medium sour/acidic taste, medium body, average carbonation, astringent aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 Bottle. Pours a pretty clear amber brown with very little head. Wonderful sour aroma, with some vinegar in there. Flavor is more of the same- sour, vinegar, and oaky. One of my favorite sour ales. I will definitely enjoy plenty of it in the future.

At first I wasnít ready for this one. I actually thought it might be skunked. But by the time I finished it I wanted another one. The sharp fruity flavor is actually very refreshing.
