330ml bottle. Clear brown/red with off-white head. Aroma has winegar and red berries. Flavor is sweet with red cherries and currants. Almost feel like a red dessert wine. Nice, but certainly not very drinkable.

Unusual taste of cherry, currents and grape juice. The kind of taste that makes you take another sip, though. Leaves the mouth feeling slightly dry between drinks. Overall, quite a nice drink. Quite different.

Garlic_of_Doom (558) - SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle from Barley Wine. Pours red with nearly no head at all. Smells vinegary in a postive way, red wine as well. The taste is a bit staggering with light red wine, sour apple and red currant and some small sweet tones. Some woody notes. Finishes off nice - dry and sour.

Great for hot days, this sour is well balanced, but not something you'll want much of. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UncleKorm (1059) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle poured a clear red hue, fully diminishing beige head. Faint musky aroma. Initial taste is light sweet with a sour finish. Flavors of cherry, yeast, and wood resin. Creamy mouth feel and soft carbonation. Medium bodied. A pleasant balance of sweet and sour.

Red-ish brown with a small amount of brown-ish head. Aroma is sour with berries and dark fruits. One could describe the aroma as vinous too. Flavour is sour, fruity, vinegary and vinous.

Everything good except its sour, taste crisp like wine & apple cider. Smell sweet seeing oak barrel. But sour is not something for me

Bozo_skeleton (723) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 13, 2014
De couleur orangée tirant sur le rouge sombre, tres grosse carbo et collet persistant de grosses bulles. Aromes acide de vinaigres et de fruits rouges comme la cerise. Je m’attendais a plus d’acidité en attaque et bien non elle arrive au final... Note boisées dues au viellissement en fut. Mais cela n’est pas dans la demesure, et meme si ce style de biere est plus exigeant et ne peu pas plaire a tout le monde (moi compris) je reste agreablement surpris.

not generally my favourite style. Nice sour winey nose. Taste is full, not overly sour but a slight underlying sour taste. Good mouth feel, smooth and rich, Ok would not turn one down but wouldn’t seek it out either.
