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.

Bottle at Milos’. My first sour beer and I liked it quite a bit! Opens up an entirely new avenue in my beer drinking adventures, which, of course, as a grad student is exactly what I want and don’t want all at the same time! Drinks very smooth, smoother than I thought it would. Definitely lots of red wine type flavours going on but there’s never any mistake this is a beer. In terms of the style, as this is my first I’m not sure how it stacks up to others as well. I guess I have more beers to try now! Really liked it though, very interesting and solid beer.

GlassBrass440 (179) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 29, 2015
Pours a cloudy rusty brown with short lasting white head. Aromas of sour cherries, forest floor, and oak. Pronounced sour flavour that is by no means overwhelming. Cherries, again, in the flavour. Quite dry in the finish with a lingering acidity.

Unique tasting and produced beer that goes great with North Sea schrimps and seafood dishes.

Dzhigga (187) - Kirov, RUSSIA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown color with small unsteady head. Aroma of apple vinegar, some champagne-like notes. Taste is heavy sour, but well-balanced and pleasant. Finish is sour and astringent. Interesting beer.

Syrlig och frisk. Fin balans även om den är lite spretig. Inte lika bra som stora Rodenbach men absolut god och utmanare till många vin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Arek (423) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Keg 0.3 l, ZUP, Wroc?aw, Poland. Ciemnorubinowe piwo o puszystej pianie i intensywnym, winnym, owocowym aromacie. W smaku lekko wodniste, winne i owocowe, zdecydowanie kwaskowe.

Fluxing (455) - POLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Kolor krwisty, lekko opalizujace. Piana bardzo obfita, przybrudzona, szybko opada, ale pozostawia gruba obraczke i mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie wino, kwasnosc, troche aromatow siarkowych, aromat typowego, niezbyt urozmaiconego kwasa. W odczuciu polpelne, ostre na finiszu, mocno drapiace w gardle. W smaku srednio wysoka kwasnosc, witamina C, troche ciemnych owocow. Szalu nie ma, ale jest w miare smaczne i dobrze pijalne.

Pistävä, happoinen ja gueuzen mieleen tuova tuoksu. Hapan, kukkainen ja viinietikkainen tuoksu. Tummanruskea, samea. Ujo ja reunoille vetäytyvä vaahto. Maku alkaa gueuzella, päättyy brown aleen. Haastava. Happaman kirsikkainen. Raikas, pirskahteleva, kielen kärkeä kihelmöivä. "One for the connoisseur".
