COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(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.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Bottle shared at ogglethorps: Aroma here is not surprisingly of cellared lemon, bit musty, bit woody. Pretty bubbly character, taste is sour lemon, slight vinegar, with some citric acidity and everyone’s favorite barnyard funk. Chalky, tart finish that was not too tart. Surprisingly 8% ABV. Very enjoyable sour.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2009
Thanks to KnutAlbert for sharing. Pours dark reddish orange, small offwhite head. Aroma is sour, vinegar, tomato, slightly metallic, quite funky. Flavour is equally sour, with the same tomato and vinegar notes coming through, along with wood and berries. Quite a bit going on in this brew. Sparkly carb, medium to light body.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2005
A very dark red, majogony wood color and very clear with a tight-bubbled, tan head. Small bubbles rise continuosly from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is a very pleasant balsamic vinegar and not the nosehair follicle destroying white vinegar and is balanced by a nice sweetness, milk, and toast. There is a great deal of sourness in the flavor. It is almost mouthpuckering at first drink especially when combined with the additional tannic dryness from the wood that almost coats the palate. The kind of vinegar is nice but the soft wood character distracts me and overdominates with its astringent, mouthcoating residue that recedes in intensity as it warms. Overall, a very nice sour red, better than most..

Pours cloudy mahogany with quickly disapearing grayish head. Aroma of sour dark fruits. Flavor is nicely sour, but not too sour, with a nice yeasty mustiness in the background along with some citrus and berry. Not too sweet, which is also quite nice.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours a slightly murky copper red with a small lid of big off-white bubbles. The aroma is vinous with notes of tart grapes up front and with hints of grass, strawberries, balsamic vinegar and minerals. Lots barrel character and oak. A mildly acidic and balanced smell. The flavor is mildly sweet with a nice tartness to it. Not very sour. Lots of red wine character with fruit tannins, grape skin and grass. Less barrel character than in the nose. Some notes of balsamic vinegar. The finish is a bit short with a mild grassy bitterness to it, fruit aromas and minerals. Full-bodied and almost with a fat mouthfeel due to the basically total absence of carbonation. Very drinkable and balanced with a surprisingly full character.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Wow - this is one really really fine funky beer. One of my top 5 beers is Ghiridan Geuze - and this has some of the same great characteristics that I like in that beer, but with a dark fruity, cherry like sourness. Sharp, tangy and dry - wonderful balance. I wish I had taken more complete notes when trying it - but sometimes you just gotta enjoy a really fine beer.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Bottle at The Map Room. Sour ales are not my thing but this is one of the better sours I have had. Pours a rich medium amber with a thin head. Sour and tart berries dominate with wood and vanilla accents in the background. Not overly sweet and finishes crisp.
