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.

adasko (2157) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 6, 2017
Bottle. Sour, fruity, tart aroma. Super crisp, dry, pleasant. Taste is also very complex. Theres rather big punch of sourness in the beginning, but its super short. Right after that theres a lot of fruity notes, not very sour, not sweet neither. Cherry, redcurrant, apple. You can feel that its well balanced, properly maturated. Its a pity though, that the taste is not as clear and not as intense as aroma. Its way behind unfortunately. But still - it is a great beer, very pleasant one.

Darwenus (1038) - Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Given the quality and intensity of this sour, especially with regard to the comparatively low price, Im inclined to rate it among the best of the style that Ive had. Its just outstanding. This beer pours dark, clean copper brown with an average head. The aroma is yeasty and strong, fruit notes, tart apple cider, hints of the oak come through, too. Very big on the tongue from front to back, with the oak coming through strong through the middle and a pungent, vinegar tone in the finish. This is an aggressive sour, one to save for after youre acclimated to the style. But for sour fans, this is a must-drink.

DonGregorio (206) - POLAND - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle. Clear dark red colour, rocky tan head with decent duration. Aroma of red fruits (cherries, currants), vinegar, wood. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium sour, sour cherries, berries, some wood and vinegar. Tangy, with quite sharp finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Very intense Flanders ale.

LaPelos (28) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 2, 2017
Botella de 33cl. Bonito color rojizo con aromas que recuerdan a la sidra. Suave y afrutada, con una ligera acidez y buena persistencia final. De las buenas. Para repetir

FinnIckler (318) - GERMANY - FEB 28, 2017
Bottle from beergium.com. pours reddish brown. Nose is oak, acidic apple, lime, citrus. Palate is almost like a Apfelwein, acidic apple, Peach, but much more carbonated and more acidic in the finish. Quite good.

VueltaBirrista (88) - Murcia, SPAIN - FEB 26, 2017
Tiene un precioso color rojizo y forma unos milmetros de espuma de una tonalidad entre blanca y canela que aguanta en vaso ms de lo que en un principio cabra esperar dada su bajsima carbonatacin. Huele a madera y frutas como la manzana, pero sobre todo viene a la mente el olor caracterstico del vinagre balsmico. En boca se percibe fruta y al igual que en nariz algo de madera.
