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: MAY 19, 2007 Thanks to JK for sharing. Wonderful sour nose with the faintest hint of cherry. Dark amber pour with almost no head. Delicious sour flavor with some hints of the cherry again. Tart finish with the faintest hint of basalmic vinegar.

Thanks goes to JK for sharing this. From a 330 ml brown bottle, this brew pours a reddish brown color with a small light tan head. Lots of carbonation with a sticky lacing. Aroma of strong red wine, some vinegar, cherry, Dr Pepper, and moist hard wood. Taste is sour cherry, musty raspberries and a tart aftertaste. Kind of reminds me like drinking a sour port than a beer.

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2007
Bottle. What an aroma! Raisins, plums, rum, alcohol, some fruit (pineapple?) in a wonderful taste for the nose. Wonderful flavour - like a sweeter geuze. Dark red/brown with a thick light-brown head which disappears quickly. Sparkling, velvety. Taste of grapes, cherry and cola. Wonderful, long finish. Truly an original and spectacular beer!

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2007 Bottle. Pours brown with some red highlights. Beautiful aroma of sweet and sour cherries highlighted by oak. Sour cherries on the palate followed by notes of wood, sour grapes, cherries and sour yeast. Develops quite nicely in the glass. Finishes sweet, sour and long. Quite nice.

milewide (2185) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2011 Red brown color. Both aroma and taste are mostly sour. This is different, and refreshing, however. Medium body. An unique beer that really is unique!

anders37 (25552) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2007
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish color with a longlasting off-white head. Tart sour and slightly acidic aroma with some hints of wood. Sweet malty and slightly tart flavor with hints of wwod. Fruity malty tart finish.

small bottle. Love this beer. Dark red in appearence with a light red head. Smells of cherrys and oak. Taste is tart and delicous. Great brew that everyone should try.

JohnnyJ (5535) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 25, 2007
Awesome aroma of cherries, oak, sour fruit, currants, and candy sugar. Pour is a dark cherry red/brown with a light brown head. Flavor of tart cherries and evident oak flavors. Very sharp flavor. Tasty.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2007
Pours a dark ruddy brown with a large bubbled but almost nonexistent head. The nose is sharp. Big grapes, some cherry, a round malt beneath the slightly sour notes. Rather sweet, but certainly balanced by the sour. A little lactobacillus funk rounds this puppy out. I think its wonderful to inhale. On the tongue, this is light and a bit fizzy, but with such tiny little bubbles, its like mixing baking soda and vinegar in my mouth. That typical flemish sour feel. Big grape, big tannic astringency, leaves the mouth feeling rough even. Sweet round malt, with even hints of caramel and maybe even chocolate? anyhow, the big fruit and the lactobacillus steal the show. Rather sharp up front with a fruity and lightly sweet finish and a dry, slightly astringent and acidic aftertaste with a bit of toastiness. I really enjoy this beer and Im glad I can get it locally now!

Pours a reddish brown color. Aroma is of berries and vinegar. Taste of cherry and other berries as well as vinegar. Not a fan of Flemish sours.
