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.

phaleslu (10277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2012
750 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. 2009 vintage, batch #11. Bottle 2499. Pours a clear, dark amber color with a small off-white head that settles quickly. Aroma of oak, dark fruits, earthy funk, balsamic, leaves, and vegetal notes. Even more vegetal notes in the flavor, but not overpowering, with a ton of oak, plus dark fruits, tart berries, and balsamic. Light-medium bodied, with a tart, vegetal mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad, but a weird sour.

Bottled a year ago. Notes of wood, leather, lacto, and mild sour cherry with a hint of cognac and caramel. Moderate sourness 5/10. Slightly disappointing, but certainly a good Flanders ale.

This was my first experience with a sour and I was pleasantly surprised, I’m not very good at describing what I taste, to me it’s really personal preference. I really enjoyed this beer. The aroma was a bit interesting, smelled like an empty jar of pickles. While some may not consider this good, I love pickles :) I’d drink it again!

Marduk (7721) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 4, 2014
750ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Hazy copper color. No head. Almonds, peanuts, earthy, sour, woody, yarrow in aroma. Herbal, yarrow, mint, earthy sour taste. At some point I get dark chocolate as well (just for a millisecond or three). Although I can’t taste alcohol sense of strength is there. Nice one.

Flavor is a tannins grapes, funky cherries, horse blanket, hints of vinegar. The body is on the fuller side with a oily oak texture. Not over the top sour pretty subtle. The finish is all oak. Overall drinkable even for somebody that doesn’t drink sours.
