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.

Fullpintofbeer (265) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle @Strawberry Thief, Bristol. Small head, dark amber/red, lightly hazy. Aroma of oak wood, plum, raisins, a little bit of alcohol. Sour taste, with deep red wine aftertaste. Medium body, thick, average carbonation. Wow, nice, deep aroma and taste, but also drinkable and refreshing.

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 Cherry on the nose along with oaky notes and sourness. The taste is sour with sweet malt in the background, cherries and wood. Sharp as a razor but very balanced, refreshing and very unique.

wkalle (263) - SWEDEN - APR 6, 2009
Pours clear brown with a large offwhite head mostly lasting with some lacing. Dipped the nose and summer was all over, lots of flower and cherries packed in a malty caramell sour mess. A sip on it revealed flavor of coffee and sweet berries. Medium body with rather high carbonation. An excellent brew.

PintjeFritz (261) - Baden-Wrttemberg, GERMANY - APR 25, 2016
A very nice bottle with the drink temperature on the label. A brown cloudy beer with a short cappuccino head, very fresh and drinkable, medium sour, you can smell apple and wood, the finish is very short, (I have a 0.33l bottle with best-before 14/10/17 19 17:40.)

A beautiful mahogany/red with a tan head. Aroma is cherries, a bit of vinegar. Flavors got lots of sour berries, but a bit of malty sweetness as well. Sour finish.

Excellent cherry color, little head. Sour with oaky notes. Strong bold flavor, smooth, nice lasting finish. Not as sour as some others, bold flavor.

Fantastic beer. Sour and refreshing. Not syrup-y or overly sweet. It is the hallmark of its style.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
On tap at the Beer Markt.

Appearance: Pours a deep red brown with minimal head.

Aroma: Grapes, sour cherries, bubble gum, Belgian yeast.

Flavours: Grapes, bubble gum, wine gums, sour cherries, that lambic yeast taste I cant quite describe.

Mouthfeel: Medium viscosity with higher carbonation.

Overall: A really nice Belgian sour. Ive been waiting a while to try this and wasnt disappointed. Great combination of flavours and aromas. The sourness was quite present but not overwhelming.

TampaBeer (257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2007
sweet feathery jesus this is sour. The sticky sour aftertaste gets more and more unpleasant. Aroma of cheap wine/vinegar. Almost non-existent palate. I couldnt finish it.
