Bottle. Amber brown. Sour dark fruit aroma with a bit of an odd skunky note. The taste adds oak and a lot of Cabernet tanin notes. Cherry, raisin, light chocolate after it warmed. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark clear brown with almost no head. Aroma is dark fruit, red wine and musty funk. Taste is a little rubbery up front and adds some lactic notes and wood from the barrel. Medium sticky mouthfeel with no carb. Very tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a friend. Smell is sour and has notes of citrus and some fruits. Pours a dark amber colour with a medium beige head. Taste is subtle sour but at the same time fresh and enjoyable. Palate and body is thin though the taste lingers in mouth. An enjoyable beer which, despite its sourness, is very fresh.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a deep, deep garnet with a high, fine-grained, just off-white lacy head. That is an amazing nose; as I poured it waves of sour, fruity, woody, aroma came wafting towards me. There’s also notes of red wine and an acetic element. On the tongue, there’s a tart punch right up front, shifting quickly into the roundness of dark fruit, oak, and vinification; while there’s no sweetness, there is definitely a complex and deep element that keeps it from being too thin and emphatic in its sourness. I cannot recall ever having a sour that was this rich. Finish is long, fruity, tannic, and smoky. This might be the best sour I’ve ever had.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours I deep redish amber, almost like a watered down cab. Poured into a tulip glass. Slight red hue on head that quickly diminishes. Aroma of sour cherry and dark fruit. Slight sweetness that fades into tart candy in the most pleasant way.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Luxurious specialty fruit beer aged on wine barrels. Loose, quickly dissolving, off-white foam, colour a misty brownish copper. Powerful, vinous and very fruity aroma of sherry, cassis, passion fruit, balsamic vinegar, sour cherries, hay, old port wine, tobacco, wood; taste begins with a very lively, opulent fruitiness, sweetish, obviously a lot of cassis with a sharp lemony accent, drying the palate till deep into the finish, all built on a soft, caramelly and chocolatey maltiness, smooth, complex, wood in the finish with very light hoppiness and warming, sherry-like alcohol. Interesting, very vinous beer, almost like a (very strong) ’oud bruin’.
