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.

Benzai (14678) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2011
Great dark color with a dark red glow coming through. Thats about it though. Its way too sour for me, I cant find the 6% ABV and it doesnt smell very nice.

bhensonb (14496) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 7, 2008
330 ml bottle [from Marcus] (BB 24/08/08). Impressive aromas of cherry, oak, malt and likely other fruits. Sort of a ruby mahogany color with a tan head that ringed rapidly. Vinous, tart/sour (almost cooking) cherry, with vanilla, and fruit with an oak astringency tagging along. Near full bodied with creamy carbonation. There is a strong wood character to go with the cherry. The tart/malt balance very well in the finish. Much more flavorful than the classic. Its really a very tasty ale.

Scopey (13330) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2011
Bottle from Nelson Wines. It pours dark murky reddish-brown, with a thin foamy beige head. The nose is full of malt vinegar (almost overpowering), as well as plum, cherry and wood. The taste is wood, malt vinegar, juicy soft fruit (cherry, strawberry, blackberry, sour raspberry and red grape), wine-like and caramel with a well balanced sweet-tart finish. A classic.

Lubiere (13193) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2004
Red copper beer with a frothy small white head. Cherry wood and horseblanket aroma. Sour cherries and lactic fill the mouth very pleasantly, puckering the mouth. The label claims there is corn in this!!! If i tatsed this blind, I think this would be a kriek...bizarre...but good.
