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.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2010 Dark clear red color with a small beige head. Aroma and flavor of sour fruit and vinegar. The flavor is very sour with vinegar up front, malt in the middle and cherries at the end. It fits the Flemish Sour Ale style.

Color is very nice dark red-brown. Aromas are apple, vinegar with sourness. Thereís very much vinegar in taste but also cherry and itís sour, dry and tart. Palate is medium and itís heavily carbonated.

Like others have said, much like a tart wine. More like a marinade in my opinion. There is truly nothing like it. Havenít had this in years do to lack of import but I hear one can get it again. One of my favorites.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2008 On tap. Does not really smell or taste like beer. Huge winey nose, followed by a huge winey flavor. Very interesting all around, but I cant say I would drink this on a regular basis. *** This beer is far better the second time around. Makes me think something was wrong with the first bottle I had. Rasberry, cherries, citrus, red wine, wood. Sharp, but nicely balanced. A very good beer.

Big bottle. I think Iíve had this for the better part of a year....hope itís good. Pour: Nut brown and ruby. Small white head. Aroma is very vinous at first then quickly changed to a fruity oakiness. Smells awesome! Taste is tart like a champagne. Lively carbonation with a dry finish. Delicious!

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Pours a very dark amber color with a foamy off-white head. Very sour fruity aroma with hints of oak and vanilla. Intensely tart and acidic with a nice amount of sour cherry as well as oak and vanilla. Very sour with a puckering dry finish.

Bottle at Atlantic City Beerfest. Wow is this some super sour stuff. Flavor is intensely sour and definitely not for everyone. Either you will love it or hate it. Mark me down under the I love it catagory.
