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.

Une des bières qui m’as fait aimer la bière! Ces aromes aigre doux sur la cerise confite est une pure merveille et une prouesse de brasseurs. Je l’ai mis a table avec une tajine aux pruneaux, tout simplement extraordinaire aux niveaux des alliances. Félicitations aux brasseurs.

Amber to brown colour. Head doesn’t last very long. Taste of different berries and acid.

SlackerMads (1547) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Hazy brown with a medium sized light brown head. Lots of fruit; black cherries, black berries, raspberries. Light wet wood, plum, prunes, white wood. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and light/medium sour. Both flavourful and drinkable. Medium and quite soft finish that is also a little bit too sweet for my taste.

Muggus69 (1173) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2014
330mL BB 29.10.15 Deep bronzed body, holds a dense beige head. Good complex, funky nose; balsamic & red wine vinegar, cocoa, green apple, roasted nuts, lots of charred & old musty wood, dried fruit undertones. Body is full, creamy carbonation, quite rich with a acetic acid bite cutting through providing balance & length. Such a joyful mix of flavours; dark chocolate malt, caramelised balsamic, cooked & fresh green apples, charred oak, plums, raisins & vinous dried fruits. Wonderful stuff - so complex, confronting at first with a sweet & sour balance but rewarding and delicious.

Bottle. Pour is dark with a medium foamy head, aroma is malty, fruity, sweet. Taste is light acidity with alcohol notes and fruity esters with lively carbonation and a light acidic finish. Very enjoyable

Een bier met een heel uitgesproken smaak, maar het was absoluut mijn ding niet.

Lele (106) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 15, 2014
Schiuma leggermente beige, fine e molto persistente. Colore ambrato scuro un po’ torbido. Al nato si avvertono note acide, simili proprio all’aceto. In bocca si avverte un acido di classe, una sorta di mela acida e crauti. Si avverte anche un legnoso di classe. Alla fine della bottiglia, però, un po’ stanca. Giudizio complessivo: una più che soddisfacente Sour Flemish Ale.

shoulderbroken (1990) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 10, 2014
Decent tartness, perfume, bit of cherry, marzipan. Sourness and flavour comes in a hit, but the finish is sweet and lingering.

Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is malt, citrus, fruit, sour and woody. Taste is sour and acidic with nice fruity notes. Excellent.

RanoRanoRano_ (1) - Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2014 does not count
Served at 44°F in glass goblet. Cherry aroma up front with a hint of oak. Poured redish brown with an off white head, which dissipated relatively quickly. Natural cherry flavor up front. Not too sweet, not too sour. Would dare to say more of a tart flavor rather than sour. Noticed some hints of apples and white grape. Oak comes across in the background. Tart to slightly sour finish. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Very easy to drink.

jdb288 (512) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Draft. Pours bloody red/maroon with barely any head. Aroma is fermenting grape, gym socks, wine barrel, must. Taste is sour, light/medium body, and deep. A bit of puckering here with the citric acid notes. Sour/black cherry and lemon stand out. Brown sugar (a bit). Good all the way through.
