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.

Moebbels (785) - FINLAND - APR 29, 2017
A somewhat red clear beer with no head. Sour nose with cherry, apple and sherry aromas. Sour taste with an underlying sweetness that leads to a tart aftertaste. Soft carbonation and light palate. Superb sour with very good balance between the sourness and sweetness.

On tap at Pazzos. Lots of wood and fruit in the aroma. I need to try this somewhere else, because there was absolutely no carbonation.

Diabolique (20) - POLAND - APR 25, 2017
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.

Hopper8 (133) - Holland, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2017
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.

PhilosophyGuy (545) - Łdź, POLAND - APR 19, 2017
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.
