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 to snifter. Notes on the nose containing sour cherry and a little bit of earthy funkiness. Red/brown pour with a nice large beige head. It is a very excellent beer. I will definitely buy this again

Mortlach (1113) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 2, 2012
14/09/2011 Bir&Fud Bottega (750ml bottle). Bruna, miele di castagno, riflessi color ciliegia, leggermente appannata, leggera schiuma marroncina, non molto persistente. Aroma intenso tra il dolciastro e l’acetico, simile a una flemish. Si percepiscono ciliegie, caramello, aceto balsamico. In bocca è complessa e raffinata, vinosa, dolciastra nell’attacco, quindi acida, con una componente acetica evidente e caratterizzante che brucia in gola. Corpo medio, consistenza vinosa, carbonazione soft. Discreta.

Acetica; potrebbe condire l’insalata. Acida, legnosa e floreale al naso e alla lingua. Non è il mio genere.

Welley_Alves (225) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - FEB 3, 2013
Lendária sour ale belga, de fermentação espontânea, utilizando métodos ainda rudimentares porém tradicionais na sua produção. Envelhecida em 2 anos em barril de Carvalho, num blend com outra cerveja mais jovem. As sour ales sao cervejas no mínimo peculiares. A fermentação láctica dá um caráter acido característico do estilo. Coloração vinho com pouquíssima espuma, desprendendo um aroma acido e cítrico, lembrando frutas silvestres. Ao primeiro gole, uma sensação bem diferente: acido! No paladar segue realmente acida, com conteúdo láctico predominante, alternando com framboesas e cerejas, as vezes lembrando vinho tinto. O retrogosto é seco e bastante duradouro. Honestamente nao me adaptei às azedinhas da moda, parafraseando o Beltramelli. Mas admito que me surpreendi. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Head is moderate, quite nice lacing. Aroma is very intesive, it?s a mix of cherry, apple and vinegar. Taste is similar, but feels more fruits than sourness. Is it beer yet? In my opininon, it?s something between beer and wine. But it?s really tasty!

UDBeernut (2009) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2013
750ml bottle shared with wife while rewatching some GoT. pours a mix of ruby and tan, small cream colored head that has little staying power. Aroma of some oak, slight barnyard, and earth. Taste started with a slight puckering tartness that was washed over by some sweetness. A bit of horsehair and funk, oak. Body was light and effervesent.

mutz (684) - NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Heel donker bruin/rood, veel kraag die snel verdwijnt tot een laagje op het bier. Geur van azijn, mout, kersen en iets hout. Smaak: zuur, kersen, azijn,wat zoet en een zure afdronk. Best te drinken, maar niet zo goed als de duchesse.

culchiem (2848) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Mahogany with a thin head. Aroma is fairly heavy dark fruit. Flavour is champagne bitter, dried fruit and plum on a very dry palate. Finish is very dry wine like.

Purchased from the Liquor Barn on Shelbyville Road in St Matthews. I’m fairly new to sour ales, and this is one of my favorites out of the ones I have tried thus far, yet certainly not THE best. I realize I will be revising my strategy for adding comments to a beer rating, but for now and today this will suffice.
