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.

Bricks (976) - Delaware, USA - APR 22, 2012
Duped into thinking it was a typical Belgian Strong at a tasting -- ended up being a drain pour. Sour and beer don’t mix for me. Could think of one descriptive word - vinegar.

Tayeth (533) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2016
Geruch nach Beeren, Kirschen und Rotwein. Geschmack säuerlich und ein bisschen in die Richtung von Glühwein. Angesehen von der Beeren und Kirschen findet man auch Zimt und Muskatnuss. Etwas kratzig im Abgang.

pours into a brownish red body with a limited off white head that quickly disappears. aroma is tart and sweet with a slight vinegar bite. the flavor is stronger with vinegar though the sweetness is now brought out more with a fruity flavour. a pleasant drink and one id enjoy again.

vinivini (1281) - BELARUS - SEP 28, 2016
From a trade with YantarCoast. Thanks. Cloudy amber to red. Off-white head. Well-lacing. The aroma is malty & yeasty. Dried fruit, candy, fruity acidity. Minimal wildness. Light to medium body. The flavour is light sweet and medium sour. A bit vinous. Nicely malty. Fruity. Low to light bitterness. Very well tasting.

alomtnez (350) - SPAIN - SEP 26, 2016
On tap. Frothy off-white head with medium retention. Clear reddish brown colour Aroma has sourness, roasted, some fruitiness (plum). A little Champagne-like. Taste has cider-like acidity, crispy, fruity sweetness. Acid-sour finish. Watery palate, very refreshing acidity

ordybill (1313) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a tulip glass. The appearance is a dark ruby red with a small white head. The aroma is heavy on cherry and has a sour take on the smell. The taste is very sour and has a very good cherry flavor. A really great beer.

Franckg (1180) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2016
Bouteille sans date. Robe rouge-brune très foncée et plutôt trouble sans col de mousse. Arômes de vinaigre balsamique, jus de fraise, mûre, sucre candi, cocktail de canneberges et cerises noires. En bouche, légère acidité acétique atténuée par un goût de baies sucrées. Surtout de le fraise et mûre encore, jus de cerise noire et sucre candi. L’équilibre des saveurs est impeccable. Finale presque vineuse, un peu comme un vin de cerise. Texture huileuse et corps moyen. Très belle bière.

markschiedon (586) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2016
Drinking blind from a 33cl bottle. Bottle several years old. In the aroma sour, coffee, alcohol, cherries. The clear brown beer has a small brown head. In the taste balsamic vinegar. Low carbonated.

hauxe (415) - Butzbach, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2016
Pours reddish brown from the bottle. Aroma is cherry, sour apple. Taste is up front sour, very sour, with notes of green apple and apple vinegar. Very nice palate: medium bodied, well carbonated but not aggressively so. It goes down easy and the rich smoothness helps balance the sharp, vinegary overtones. Finish is cherry sweet with a lingering tartness. An intriguing beer and all the more so for the intense sour sweet explosion of flavor without any added sugar or fruit. Amazing stuff. That said this is a niche beer for me, and not something I would seek out on a weekly basis.
