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.

A perfect sour. Tart fruity. Very enjoyable. No vinegar without pushing imagination only on the nose. Very nice. Nice head. Excellent. This is what a sour should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frudel (236) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017
An amber, reddish liquid flows into the glass, with no head and no bubbles. Cant get calmer than this. Nose is lambic, acetic acid, dried fruits, lovely! Taste is not too sour, super well balanced, some sweetness still there, dark dried fruits, like figs and prunes, the glass goes down by itself. Complexity ++. Well done!

Moebbels (789) - FINLAND - APR 29, 2017
A somewhat red clear beer with no head. Sour nose with cherry, apple and sherry aromas. Sour taste with an underlying sweetness that leads to a tart aftertaste. Soft carbonation and light palate. Superb sour with very good balance between the sourness and sweetness.

On tap at Pazzos. Lots of wood and fruit in the aroma. I need to try this somewhere else, because there was absolutely no carbonation.

Diabolique (25) - POLAND - APR 25, 2017
Butelka i beczka zasługują na najwyższe oceny. Cudowny balans, kwaśność i słodycz, tylko octu ciut za mało ;) Dostojne i bardzo satysfakcjonujące piwo.

Nltn tumman ruskea ja tammen vrinen. Tuoksu kirpe ja hapokas. Maussa puolestaan edelleen kirpsakkuutta, marjaisuutta ja lopussa tulee mieleen kirsikka. Sarjassaan varmasti hyv, muttei ehk omaan makuun sopivin.

Super good. The wood is really strong on the nose while the fruity sours are more present during the drink and the oak comes back around on the finish. Really yummy sour.
