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.

Nice tart flavor. Drank very much like a wine. You get a bit of barn yard funk and complexity from the various bacterial strains.

Nice rich blend of berries and fruits. Kind of sour and interestingly has a dry finish. Absolutely wonderful blend!

ej (825) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep coppery producing a large and creamy-looking tan head. Aroma of (balsamic)vinegar, wood, malts and fruits. Taste is mellow acidic, with notes of sweet malts and fruits. There is also some faint bitterness here adding to the complexity. Nice smooth mouthfeel, abit prickly due to the fairly high levels of co2. Finishes quite dry with a lasting, slightly tart fruityness.

Tap at C4. Aromas of red berries, raspberry, cherry, winey. Hazy deep dark red with a lasting off-white ring of head foam. Fruity,, flavors of sour cherry . Medium bodied.

A much more tart version of the standard Rodenbach offering. Reminded me of Oud Tart by The Bruery except it had more depth of character. Tehee was something just more rounded about it. Very subtle hints of vanilla and stone fruit to back up the tartness (which does not overwhelm).
