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.

dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Poured from a 750ml bottle. Lovely bearded red with carbonation spritzing up the glass. Aromas were a bit muted, but mostly appealing sweet caramel and rose water type sweetness. Body was a bit thin and heavily carbonated for my sour ale taste, but overall very pleasing with more uncoying sweetness and tending towards a citrus type sourness. I shared this with friends and it was a splendid introduction to sour ales!

TorbenJensen (1432) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2016
The aroma is yeast, clearly brett (slightly musty shed), dried fruits and hard roasted malt. The flavor is deep and exciting by including sour cherries, brett, cranberry and juniper. Sour taste is the main theme and only a very small hops can be traced in the aftertaste.

humpah (46) - FINLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Pours deep red colour with some short-lasting and sizzling head. Sour, cherry, slightly fruity aroma. Medium body. Nice sour but still sweet and fruity, strong taste. Better when warms up a bit.

kacperred (160) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Butelka. Barwa głęboko czerwona, piana delikatna i kremowa, szybko opada. W aromacie dość silne akcenty kwaśne, lekko octowe, trochę "stajennych" dzikusów, bardzo owocowe. W smaku początkowe uderzenie silnego kwasu, które dość szybko przechodzi w specyficzną słodycz, na języku nadal odczuwa się kwaśność. Bardzo lekkie, pijalne piwo, bardzo dobrze zbalansowane.
