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.

Beautiful mahogany color with a medium off-white head. Mouth watering aroma of sour cherries and a touch of barnyard funk. Sweet and sour cherry flavor, with a strong oak finish. Crisp, lightly tingly feel. Very dry finish. Yummy! Thanks from me too, herbjones!

Fruity and roasted malt aroma. Light sourness. A special aftertaste comes long after the sip. It reminds of oven dried olive in the pizza.

330ml bottle. Pours mahogany with a thin watery head. The aroma is sweet malts, berries, oak, cognac. The taste is full flavoured, medium sweet and medium sour. Cough drops and light vinegar. Really unusual and very good.

This is grand! I like the body and the beer qualities that are not over powered by the sourness. Aroma is sour cherries, oak, faint vinegar, and a slight floral note. Taste is awesome: lots of malt/beer backbone that is punctuated by the sour cherries, grannysmith apples and faint vinegar. Finish is fizzy, bright and fruity. Overall, its just fantastic.

ForlornHope (513) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Deep red-brown in colour with no real head, only slight foam against the glass. Exceedingly complex aroma of wood, leather, balsamic vinegar and fruit. The taste is also very complex, sweet and fruity before becoming tart and lip-smackingly dry. No real bitterness, this is more of a wine tasting experience than beer. Slight carbonation, acidic and very moreish, tannic finish. Exceptional.

Balsamic vinegar crossed with sour cherry and red wine. Tasty, although Im not sure Id ever want more than one.

trujahwarrior (510) - Monroe, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2014
On tap at Special Brews. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a thick white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of berries, cherry, oak, Belgian yeast and a sour funk. Tastes of the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with great carbonation. Id have to say this is probably one of the most balanced sours Ive tried. Other flavors shine through other than just the prevalent overbearing sour flavor that dominates most other sours Ive had. Its definitely worth the price theyre asking for it.

3.8
cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 7, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2009 Clear deep amber with tiny head. Malty fruity aroma, wood and sour berries develops in mouth. Flavour is both sweet and sour, mostly sour, especially in finish. Very complex.
