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 doesn’t really taste like beer.

Kleurplaatje (22) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2014
Pours dark brownish, amber with minimal head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is quite champagne-like. You can smell the sour, which is quite full. Cherries, madeira, berry fruits, vinegar...Loveable sourness. Appealing to all senses, Taste is quite champagne-like as well. Medium sour, definetely berries, apples, cherry, citrus, well fruity in general. Oaky notes that strengthen the flavours with a beautfiul crispy vinous kick... Light bitter touch in its beautiful dry flavourful long lasting finish. It has something complex, yet it feels and tastes so simple, drinkable and balanced. Medium bodied, sticky texture (clearly on the teeth), and quite a lively carbonation. Loveable lambic-style beer. Great brew. Enjoyable for all seasons.

Bottles from Mam and Dad’s holiday, France and Rehills, Newcastle. A hazy deep red-brown coloured beer with a strong sour cherry and sugary sweet red fruit flavour, followed by sherry, currants and more tart cherry on the smooth finish.
