This beer was brewed in sept. 06 and has since then been aged in oak barrels until bottling on March 22. 2008. The beer is blended for roundness but is still very sour and a little bit acetic. We think our first attempt has been a great success and we will definitely try this again.

MakeItDrinkIt (66) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Hazy dark brown color with a medium brown head. Aroma is quite tart (but not "sour"), oaky and fruity. Flavor is large and malty across the center of the tongue, with dark cherries, plums and quite tart along the edges, causing an interesting tongue-curl as I sip. Finish shows a bit of wood, alcohol, caramel and the fruits make a small reappearance, while the tartness continues to dry it all back out. Yum!!

Eructoblaster (4066) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle - 500ml. Dark brown body with low carbonation and a fading, off-white bubbly head. Complex, robust, malty/hoppy aroma with oaky, fruity, and spicy hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp sour taste carries oaky, brett, and wild berries notes. Ends with a long sour finish. Well done.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Very dark brown-ruby red in colour with a vanishing head of foam. It has a sour cherry flavour with dried fruit notes and oak on the sour finish. Pretty good.

JPDIPSO (6028) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Brown colors with hint of ruby and purple when held to the light. Diminished tan head. Malt and rich dark fruit in the aromas. Hints of alcohol and lacquer throw things off slightly. Initial paint thinner noted in the front. Light fruit and oak slide in later, but it still has the initial shock of sucking on a siphon tube and catching some crap in the mouth. Some cherry and oak flavor come in late. Too much distraction from the early, crude alcohols. 4/10

BlazerT (923) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Very deep brown/reddish with thin, almost none, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is intense acetic, vinous with fruits - cherries notes. The unpleasant acetic notes are well hidden by vinous character and lightly malty profile. Taste is moderatly sour and dry. The sourness is quite noticable from the beginning in the end the intensity makes it slightly warming. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation, finish is dry and sour.

Franckg (1472) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2016
Bouteille date du 20/11/2013, bue aprs 30 mois. Mais peut-tre embouteille en juin 2015 car la date 20/11/2013 semble tre celle du brassage (brygget), avant un sjour de 18 mois en ft de chne. La date BB est aussi du 15/06/19, ce qui aurait du sens. Robe rouge fonc plutt claire avec une mince cerne de mousse autour du verre. Faible effervescence. Armes de fruits rouges bien sres (framboises et cerises noires surtout), extrait de fraises, jus de citron, gele de fruits. Arrire-plan mdicamenteux, un peu de chne, anis et cacao en poudre. En bouche, cest dune acidit intense. On gote un peu les fruits des champs, de lgres cerises noires, mais lacidit citrique masque une bonne partie des saveurs. Une cret rapellant les tanins du vin rouge se joint aussi ce mlange qui devient de plus en plus dur boire. Un coup lacidit estompe et les papilles ranimes, on gote un peu le chne, mlang un restant de jus de citron. Texture plutt lgre et corps mince. Disons que je me serais amplement content de la moiti de la bouteille.
