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.

BeerBeCue's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20

750ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours a nice brown/copper with a finger-thick head. Aroma is mostly of green apples, but I can also perceive some sour cherries in there, and some slight barnyard aromas in the far background. When it comes to sours, my nose is not that good honnestly...this is really all I can perceive! Taste is medium sour, medium sweet; this is really well done and balanced! Body is medium, texture is rather slick, really nice. Carbonation is average and accompanies the tartness in a nice way. Finish is pretty sour and astringent. Overall, one of the best sours I’ve had, and possibly the best Flanders-type of ale I have every had. Mind you, this is the first genuine I’m having, as the others I’ve had were Quebec-made interpretations. This is the real deal, and it has earned its rating and reputation. A well done, superb sour ale.

I found this beer not complex at all, no notes of BA maturation or complexity of sweet/acid/bitter. It just seemed monolitic acid/vinergardy with pleasant notes of cherries both in aroma and flavor. From the style - this definitely not one of the best.

J’ai donc gouté cette somité des bières aigres (sour) et elle est assez surprenante! Elle est boisée et acide et avec un gout de fruit rouge. Plutôt légère en alcool mais avec un goût prononcé, c’est rare, bonne!

This is a review from late 2014 that I just found. Bottle that was aged 2 years at beerbistro. Oaky sour grape and basalmic vinegar aroma and flavours. Cloudy reddish brown with a whitish head. Quite lovely.

Aroma is acidity and containing some milky notes. Even though it is a sour there are a lot of sweet cherries in the taste, barrel, tart and lightly sour. Overall a very nice beer.

Bière rouge sans mousse, une odeur de fruits rouges, de prunes, un peu d’amertume, un petit peu piquante elle me fait penser à la duchesse de Bourgogne, palais très sucré

Brak dokładnych notatek.
Aromat winny, drewno, beczka. W smaku jest słodko, śliwka, beczka, troche wanilii.
Średnio kwaśne, gładkie i wysoko wysycone.

Murky brown with a tan head. Aroma had red wine notes, red fruit/plums/berries, and some horse blanket/ funk. Taste tart, a bit muddled, some wood notes, funk, a bit of alcohol, tanic. Not all that good, really, though it does get better after it sits for a bit.

BARWA: brunatna. Skromna piana, szybko opada. AROMAT: czerwone winogrona, domowe wino, rodzynki, marmolada, lekko słodkawy aromat. Bardzo szlachetny aromat. Troche przypomina Sherry. SMAK: wyraźna kwaśność, czerwone winogrona, które zaczynają już lekko fermentować, czerwony agrest, trochę wiśni, przypomina półwytrawne czerwone wino. Średnie wysycenie. Świetne piwo!!
