Bottle: Filtered.
A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

Nice tan head of small tight bubbles. It didn't last long. Tart aroma. Tastes tart but very good. Nice balance of malt and tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 16, 2018 Very sour. Smells of cherries, fruit, oak. Like a red wine smell. Not my type of beer. But good.

tzynamoon (399) - Jastrzebie-Zdroj, POLAND - APR 3, 2018
Kolor ciemnorubinowy, piana szybko redukuje się do obrączki. W aromacie intensywny bimber, fermentujące ciemne winogrona, czerwone wino wytrawne, ocet. Smak kwaśny i cierpki, nuty winne, aroniowe i beczkowe. Posmak cierpko-gorzki, bardzo wytrawny. Dobre do powolnego sączenia z uwagi na spory kwas.

kamanova_boy (665) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 29, 2018
Bottle from Damian. Hazy brown red colour with little to none white head. Aroma of cider, grapes, ripe fruits, sour. Taste is very intensive - grapes, fruits, oak, very sour, tart, oak, can feel the barrel, close to wine, long intensive finish. Very good, very surprising.

oobawa (2012) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 26, 2018
Lovely sour nose gives up oak and vinous notes as well as heavy acidity. Pours brown-red with the slightest of haze and a brief off-white head lacking lace. Taste gives off a nice mixture of tart raspberry and lemon notes with a modest cherry sweetness and mild oak-vanilla on the back end. Sour but not face-burningly so, and the finish leads more towards fruit juice than wood. Sparkly texture fits the style Good, but lacks depth.

Pours a cloudy reddish-brown. Not that appealing looking. Nose is tart wood, dust, must. Taste is red fruits, fruit snacks, berries, wood, tart. Tasty

Bricktop86 (1030) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 17, 2018
Ruby red with a tan head. Aroma of red wine vinegar, honey, vanilla, and cherries. Taste is medium sweet and medium sour. Palate light body, fizzy, and dry.

VictorX (18) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - MAR 11, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2018 .330 bottle at home. Appearance - muddy brown color, rather hazy , with a small head. Aroma - rather discrete nose, with an aceitic smell and some cereal notes. Palate - medium body, good, fizzy carbonation, very discreetly oily. Taste - a decent, yet mild sourness, very borsch-like, some sweetness in the background. Aftertaste - not too long, dry; some more of the sourness with some bitter hints of lime at the very end. Overall - an unexpectedly drinkable beer, quite refreshing I would say. The sourness is mild and the sweetness rounds the beer really well. I think of it as a great introduction to sour beers.

Grumbo (4944) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2018
Bottle shared at Lowlander, Covent Garden. Pours cloudy dark brown with a good sized quite firm off-white head. Aroma of sour fruits, dark fruits, ripe plums, wood, caramel and cherries. Moderate sweetness, light sour. Medium body, slight oily texture, fine carbonation. Enjoyed this a lot!

Simpsoi90 (3) - Barnsley, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2018 750ml bottle. Bottle cork suggest it's a 2016 bottle sampled in March 2018. The usual deep red colour was almost a sludgy brown. Aroma of acetic acid was prevalent, less so in the taste. Ripe rich red fruits. Quite spritzy. Got to agree with the late Beer Hunter, Michael Jackson, that it's one of the world's most refreshing beers. Not the best example of RDC but For a first timer, prepare to be shocked, surprised and hooked.
