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.

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 Ive had, and possibly the best Flanders-type of ale I have every had. Mind you, this is the first genuine Im having, as the others Ive had were Quebec-made interpretations. This is the real deal, and it has earned its rating and reputation. A well done, superb sour ale.

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.

Bardzo dobre, kwaśne piwo. W aromacie czuć nuty suszonych owocw - głwnie śliwki i wiśni, do tego nuty drewniane, kwaśne, winne, lekko octowe. W smaku kwaśność, sporawa wytawność, ale też śliwkowość i orzeźwiający charakter. Dobrze zbalansowane. Naprawdę solidne.

Pours a two finger light tan head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Murky brown/amber color some yeast left in bottle. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Sour vinegar nose and flavor is oak and sour apple with hints of sweetness $4.50 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Red/brown thin silky head taste cherry tarte cider vinegar oakcomes through big time in the finish a beer to go with food. Something French and classic would work with this.

not a huge fan of this one. The sourness tastes kind of synthetic and cheap to me, and the supposedly orthogonal vector of sweetness is of a nauseating sort. I sense a lot of similarities to the Belle-vue Gueze which yall rightly panned so I dont see what is seen here

330ml bottle. Pours dark brown with little head. Sweet sherry vinegar, brown sugar, lots of dried fruit, figs, raisins, lots from that oak. Complex, tart, delicious.
