(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.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2012 75 cL bottle, bordeaux coloured cap apparently Johnnys Offlicense in one of the only places to get this in Europe. Pours dark and hazy brown with a redish glare. Light milky aroma and solid fruity. Sweet fruity and acidic to lacto milky on the back of the tongue. Loads of brett, acidity, wood and mild milky notes. Ends fruity and dry brettish. Fantastic.

I’ve been looking forward to this beer for a long time - and it didn’t disappoint me - even though I don’t give it 4+. Unfortunately it has slipped out of the Top 50 before I sampled it ;-)

A muddy brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is lovely sour combined with woody notes. The flavor is quite complex with notes of berries - especially cowberries, wood, and light notes of red wine on a lovely sour background. Very nice - but I’d like higher carbonation, since I think that would bring out even more nuances from this nice brew.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2006
Bottled. Brownish ruby colour with mediumsized beige head. Sour fruits in aroma with some hints of barnyard. Flavour is sour fruits and earthy with hints of wood. Very nice brew, and definitively the best Italian beer I have had so far. Thanks to MrWalker for bringing this to the ratingsession.

omhper (25163) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2006
[Bottled, thanks MrWalker!] Cloudy mahogany colour- Aroma of coffee and sour cherries. Tart and really roasty. The body is firm, but given it’s size impressively slender. Wood is evident, as is the vinegary acidity. Falvourwise it’s not far off Cuvée de Tomme, but less potent and more drinkable. A wonderful beer!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of sk8viking. Pours an almost unclean orangey brown with a creamy, beige head. Tart nose with distinct oaky touches. Medium body, fantastic complexity between acidity, oak and yet still an underlying, caramelish sweetness. Sour to the extent that it challenges and teases my taste buds but never kills them. A true pleasure. 170406

Travlr (24930) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Dark reddish amber with a sweet sour aroma. Full bodied, malty and complex. In the style of Rodenbach, but with slightly less body. Might age well, worth a try.

Zwanze Day at the Kernel. Thanks to Paul. Hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy. Mild fine carbonation. Lightly sour dried fruits. Whisper of acid. Mild raw malts. Dry finish. Bit messy.
