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.

Trappist1 (561) - Diest, - APR 4, 2014
From tap @ Delirium. Dark browh with a red glance. yellow brownish head. Nose: sour, wild yeast, cherries. Taste: wood, oak, cherries, some fruitiness. sourish finish, but still some sweetness in the back. Almost perfectly balanced, oh so refreshing. This is just a great beer!!

Bottle. Deep copper/amber. Vinegar, wood, sour aroma. The taste adds fruit juice, cherries and grapes, tart bitterness and red wine tannins. Reminds me of black cherry soda. Long finish. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Didn’t know this was a sour beer, what a surprise. Deep red brownish color, nice yellowish head. Nose is... oh what, it stinks like vinegar! Aroma is balsamic winegar nonetheless, with some winey overtones and red must. But in the finish some malts are trying to resurface. Taste is, surprise surprise, sour. Light to medium body, carbonated. I don’t like this thing at all. Seems like this is gone bad, no way i can appreciate this. May be good as salad dressing?

Kauge (349) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (€ 3.99). Pours a murky brown with a mahogany hue and a nicely retaining tan head. Nose... dusty and woody, definitely some oak, a slight fruity tartness, and an indistinct spiciness. Metallic notes. Taste is very refreshing with fruits and berries in the forefront (cherries, redcurrants), very sweet, very sour, vinous acidity, the spicier notes of oak joining in a bit later. Body thick with a syrupy sticky palate, carbonation average... It’s so sticky I can’t go without another sip for more than 30 seconds. A very good beer - reminds me of homemade apple juice with cherries gone slightly bad.

AdiBeer (1509) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
Aroma: sour, acidic, apple, cider, oak. Appearance: hazy, dark brown, creamy, beige head. Taste: light sour. Palate: sours continue, oaky, getting a little bit bitter in the finish, slightly dry, apples again, soft carbonation. Overall: quite an interesting Sour Brown, nice palate. Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn.

Ulysse (121) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2014
Fruity and roasted malt aroma. Light sourness. A special aftertaste comes long after the sip. It reminds of oven dried olive in the pizza.

florent.janssens (62) - - DEC 15, 2014
arome de torrefaction, geuze,... Goût fort nuancé. C’est une rouge des flandres avec un léger goût de lambic doux. L’arriere gout reste et évolue. Bière interressante.

AGCostaNeves (16) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - DEC 15, 2014
Red color. Beige foam formation has low altitude and long duration. Balanced beer that denotes a light tart red fruit. Medium bitterness bubbling and comes to tickle the tongue. Very well balanced and shows a more acetic touch. Soft, sweet and sour body. Beautiful delicacy.

slawek (219) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. Small head, red, clear color. Aroma: Barnyard, red wine, fruits. Taste: Sour. Flavor of wine, cherry, lemon. High carbonation, short, refreshing finish. Classical beer, every beer geek should try it.

Mooms (52) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Too much vinager in that wine aftertaste. I understand this type of beer has a huge following but if you don’t like Sour beers, drink some apple vinegar instead.
