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.

Really really good. Clean and oaky. It opens up with a little funk on the palate. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

This is my second sour beer and second rodenbach. Still too early for me. Tried this on tap at the Bier Markt.

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
