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.

Medium to dark amber color with ok head. Aroma is quite strong, sour fruits and quite interesting. Flavor is quite strange, like sweet ans sour fruits. Probably not that bad but doesnít really taste like beer.

Sample at wild beer fest. One of those things you always see at the store but never grab. Decent drink. A little on the sweet side. Some tartness lots of fruit. Oak and a bit of vanilla to smooth things out a bit. A little funkiness on the nose.

gim (48) - POLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Aroma is acidic, sour cherry notes, some sweetness, Bit hazy, ruby red, foam quickly dissolves. Medium sour in taste, based on aroma Iíve expected itíll be at least bit sweet, but thereís none :) Medium/light bodied, thin, average carbonation. Pleasant finish, initially delicate bitterness turning into lasting sourness.

RuNpali (54) - FINLAND - MAY 2, 2015
I usually donít like sour ales but this one I do. The color is mahogany and the head is beige and fine. Smell... What can I say, sour. But the taste is less sour, surprisingly. Body is full. The best sour ale Iíve tasted so far.

Read no reviews prior, was not expecting a sour but am so happy thatís what it is! Aroma of vinegar and fruits. No lacing. Flavour of yeasts, vinegar, sour cherries, lemon, lemon tarts, etc. Really good.

huineman (71) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 21, 2015
Mahogany color; minimal head. Very intense sour aromas: cider, yogurt, sour cherry. Along with many other things, such as chocolate pie or mushrooms. Dry, very sour, without a trace of bitterness. Light body, short-lived finish. Difficult but very interesting.
