(Editor’s note) Originally this version was available for the American market, while in Europe a version less sour was available; as of today, only this version of Sour is produced, so if you got a recent vintage you had this one.
The Sour has a sticker to differenciate it from the sticker-less Barriquée Mild, which has not been inoculated with lactobacillus bacteria.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 16, 2005
750 mL capped bottle: pours incredibly dark mahogany with ruby hues and an extraordinarily persistent ivory cream around the edges. Sour black cherry skins with hints of chlorophyll, oak, pine, and vanilla beans. Puckering, sour palate the finishes pretty dry. Acidic flavours with a bit of spicy smoke and deep fruitiness. You know, beers like this one are incredibly difficult to describe, but you must believe they are just great.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2005
LCRBM.Nose is of a classical good Flemish sour ale. Woody, sour, cherrylike, vinous. Sour taste, woody, dry finish. I liked the nose more than the aste, still a more than decent Flemish sour ale.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2005
Bottled at LC-RBM. Oak and sourish cherry aroma. Cloudy, amber color, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, very sour, almost vinegar flavors, oak and cherry, well balanced. Amazing something like this can come from Italy.

diabel (1693) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2005
Bottle at the RBG Low Countries 2005 tasting session
Finally! Creamy, light brown head. Excellent lace. Murky brown body. Woow, what an aroma. I just love it. Fruits are obvious: grapes, sour cherries. Cask wood is also present. And then there was that other aroma, which I couldn’t tell right a way what it actually was. But after a while, I figured out: it smells like sweaty underpants (like when you just ran 5km) combined with urine. It’s maybe an awfull idea, but that’s exactly what I smelled in the Panil Barriqué. The flavour is also lovely. Heavily acidic, lightly bitter initial flavour. Moderately acidic finish. Light to medium bodied. Fizzy carbonation. Very lovely flemish sour ale. The fruity flavour combines cherries, bitterness, sourness perfectly to a very well balanced beer. I hope I can ever have this again.

zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 Pours a very cloudy brown, with a tan head. Aroma is malt, oak/wood, and sour fruit. Flavors are sour fruit, malt, wood, and lesser bits of hops and smoke. The sourness is not overdone. Very interesting and complex. Thanks to ClarkVV for this one.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 05’ bottle courtesy of ClarkVV in trade. Now available in MI. Sweet! Pours medium to dark brown, no head to speak of, all three bottle leaked in transit (bad caps). Aroma is very woodsy with alot of sour cherry. Initial flavor is vinegar with very little fruit. The more it warms the more sour it gets, takes awhile for the fruit to come through. When it does, it’s very lemon like mouth puckering. Very well done.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Bottle. Nose-very rich sour woody and slightly fruity nose. Very dark almandine body with a thick film of bubbles. Taste-first taste reminds me of smoked lemonade. Don’t ask me why. Notes of dilute lemon juice, tart cherry, lots and lots of wood, some residual sweetness, very, very light smoke, and white wine. In a word, this beer is woody.
