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.

Nice rich blend of berries and fruits. Kind of sour and interestingly has a dry finish. Absolutely wonderful blend!

Bottle. Pours a deep coppery producing a large and creamy-looking tan head. Aroma of (balsamic)vinegar, wood, malts and fruits. Taste is mellow acidic, with notes of sweet malts and fruits. There is also some faint bitterness here adding to the complexity. Nice smooth mouthfeel, abit prickly due to the fairly high levels of co2. Finishes quite dry with a lasting, slightly tart fruityness.

A much more tart version of the standard Rodenbach offering. Reminded me of Oud Tart by The Bruery except it had more depth of character. Tehee was something just more rounded about it. Very subtle hints of vanilla and stone fruit to back up the tartness (which does not overwhelm).

On tap @BierMarkt. Aroma: red fruits such as cherries, a touch of caramel, winery a bit. We can smell definitely smell the sourness. App: murky brown with nice medium beige frothy head with some dots in the head. Taste and palate: medium body, smooth, medium-high carbonation, lots of cherry in mouth, medium sour finish. Overall: really good. Really easy to drink...enjoyed a lot.

Butelka. Piana bardzo ladna, ale szybko sie redukujaca i malo brudzaca szklo. Barwa glebokiej czerwieni-brazu-brunatnosci - ciezka do okreslenia, ale ladna, klarowne. Po otwarciu pierwsze nuty aromatu faktycznie zawieraly drewniana beczke, ale niestety pozniej sie to ulotnilo, zgubilo w innych - czyli glownie owocowej, wisniowej kwaskowatosci, jezynach, nieco winno -cherry tez wrazenie, zwlaszcza po lekkim ogrzaniu sie.. Za to praktycznie brak aromatu belgijskich drozdzy, stajni itp. moze raz, z butelki nie z pokala cos takiego przemknelo przed nosem ;) W ustach niewatpliwie wytrawne, nieco szampansko oddaje co2, wytrawne, smak dobrego octu, owocow kwasnych, jakies slodkawe, a la karmelowe nuty. Niemniej owocowa kwasnosc niewatpliwie najsilniejsza, przy czym bardzo fajnie wywazona w calosci. To piwo na pewno nie jest piwem na codzien dla mnie, jednak jest pociagajace i kuszace :) lekkie. Wrazenia bardzo pozytywne, choc spodziewalem sie moze jeszcze ciut wiecej.
