COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.
8.5% alc. 20 ibu. Serve at 8-12C

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!!

Bottle thanks to Stuu666. Pours brown with no head. Aromas of basamic funk, red wine, acetic notes. Taste is light sour, more balsamic, sourness creeps up down the glass. Dry, woody, sour finish, light cidery hint. It's a bit good this is.

Grzesiek79 (4435) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle from Dyspensa in Radom. Alez kwasne piwo. Niesamowity aromat juz po zdjeciu kapsla. Pachnie octem jablkowo-winnym. W smaku sos beszamelowy zalany a wlasciwie utopiony w occie balsamicznym, ocet winny troche wisniowej zadziornej kwaskowosci. Piwo jest lsniaco bordowe zupelnie bez piany taki to urok tego stylu. Metnosc poprawna kakaowo brazowa sie robi po przelaniu tej mazi. Caly czas gryzie i zakwasza gardlo. Extremalne i dla wielu nie do przelkniecia. SUPER sour red and brown Ale. zblizony do Rodenbach vintage troche tez do dobrych wytrawnych win wloskich, zwlaszcza sycylijskich. Hardcore Sour I’m lovin it.

Eructoblaster (4392) - 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.
