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.

Finwe (415) - Grankulla, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2009
330 ml bottle @ Kaisla. Pours dark reddish-brown with scarcely any head. Has a sour aroma with ripe, sugary, red fruits. The flavour is vinegary sour but fruity sweet at the same time. The characteristic taste of oak is easy to notice. Sweetish aftertaste.

GT2 (9273) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 23, 2010
750mL corked and caged. Pours a slightly hazy oud bruin with a thin yellowish head that has okay retention and leaves some fairly good lacing. Aroma is exceptional: light balsamic, buttery goodness, oak, peat, tannins. Really nice FSA nose. Taste is slight sour, some sweet Faro character in there. Mix of caramel, faro syrupy notes and sour gummies, sweet-tarts. Pretty nice lacto sourness. Not moth-puckering or mouth-watering sour. More subdued. Pretty nice.

Red-brown color with a tan head. Sweet and pineapple-sour aroma. Like apple cider meets a light double or a brown.

drowland (6771) - Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2010
6/10/10. 750mL bottle (marked best before 02/01/12) into a wine glass. Pours a dark ruby red with a fizzy off-white head that fades to a ring fast. The aroma is sour cherries, dark breads, and a good hint of vinegar. The flavor starts with big sour, not much acid burn, switches to musty oak and breads, and finishes a bit salty. Medium-high carbonation with a somewhat thick mouthfeel.
