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.

Very refreshing beer. Nice combination of sour and sweetness with a nice dry finish. They say it finishes like wine and I'd have to agree. Don't be scared of the word sour. If you enjoy wine from time to time, give this a taste. - check out more at www.beeriam.com

I can definitely notice the house flavor here. This is the base of the caractere rouge. Sour with some plum and grape raisin flavors. Sweetness at the end is surprising. Great middle ground of sour and normal beer. Barrel tannins adds a depth to the tongue feel abd are more noticeable in the nose

bwa5879 (697) - Portage, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Deep purple/mahogany pour with ring of offwhite on top. Funky sweet aroma: leather tannins, tart cherry, barnyard funk or fur, fragrant wood. Low cabronation, tingly mouthfeel with a medium body/viscosity, very clean finish. Tart flavor ofcherries and possible berries, pert funk, a bit of weathered wood and faint leather too. Really well done sour beer that’s lighter bodied and not too tart.

Flavor is a sweet and sour combination of the aforementioned. Palate is quite thick with medium carbonation. Finish has a quite strong bite of bitterness. Aftertaste has sourness, berry jam, cherries and sugary sweetness. Very enjoyable. Good balance of sweetness and sourness.
