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.

worldbeertaste (1806) - West Midlands, - SEP 8, 2012
Clear medium brown red with a thin light lacing, somewhat lasting white head. Smells of vinegar, sour, woody and berry. Flat carbonation in a medium oily body slightly prickly. Slightly pickled with an overall acidic . Need some chips to go with this. I don’t really understand it. Sweet yet very sour.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 asked for a sour but not fruity beer, and found this one. not as dry as gueuze, not too sour - perfect in overall taste. the notes are not perfect though. said to be a type-beer for flanders red ale style

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Slightly sour with a hint of cherries . The taste needs a moments reflection and to be held in the mouth for a while. The sourness really works making it both substantive in quality and refreshing. Served in a wine glass shaped glass it is a worthy contribution the pantheon of Belgian beer.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 First impressions:like sucking sour black cherries through a dead vole (that had died whilst feasting on limes). By sip no 12, the taste softens and the sweetness of the cherries nicely contrasts the sour notes of the cheeries. An unexpected beer. Beguiling. But for all that, a bit of a ladies drink with us fine stemmed class and sophisticated palette. Nice.

beskid (254) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2017
Dark red-brown, tiny head ring. Aroma is sour, light funk, tart cherries, red currant, red wine, hint of vinegar. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly sour, red fruits and oak, a little bit of funk; very elegant beer.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2017 Дуже чудово! Кислинка занад то велика, але м‘яке та файне. Гарне завершення важкого дня.

Piepenhenrich (1157) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
One of the best sour Ales. Pours dark, brown. Nice sour flavor, complex blend of fruity, malty, spicy flavors. Brilliant.

Saso (2) - Kamnik, SLOVENIA - OCT 7, 2017 does not count
Sadno, balzamično, kislo, wannabe vino, pa vseeno pivo. Zelo aromatično. Ko se navadiš balzamičnega, začutiš vinsko, nato sadno aromo črni češenj, višenj in na koncu nekaj lesa. Lepe rdeče bakrene barve. Bistro. Okus balzamično kisel, intenzivno saden s poudarkom črne češnje, višnje, ribeza. V pookusu les, mlečna kislina. Prijeten občutek v ustih. Srednjega telesa.

W aromacie czuć winne, octowe i estrowe nuty sfermentowanych wiśni oraz w tle drzewne nuty beczki. W smaku dość słodkie, kwaśne ze znikomą goryczką. Dużo bardziej pijalne od wersji klasycznej i nie szczypie tak w język na finiszu. Przyzwoity sour red ale.

cinek (383) - POLAND - SEP 27, 2017
butelka/kufle i widelce. brązowe, niewielki krążek brudno białej piany od początku od nalania. aromat octowy, sfermentowanych owoców, winny, lekkie mokre drewno. w smaku słodkie na starcie, przyjemny kwaśny twist i długi orzeźwiajacy, lekko octowy finisz. przyjemnie się pije. nasycenie niemal zerowe

I love it! I do not see big difference in comparison with caractere rouge. Maybe coz I dont drink them simultaneously, but separately. It is sweet and i love it. Sour, refreshing, fruity and barrel notes, wine notes. Price - much cheaper. FOOD RECOMMENDED!
