2009 vintage, barrel 145. 750 mL bottle courtesy of Tyson, served in a snifter. Pours hazy deep chestnut with a medium beige head that mostly remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of oak, caramel, vanilla and sour cherry. The flavour is balanced between soft tart cherries on the one hand and caramel oakiness on the other. The finish is long and delicate with oaky notes, slight sour fruit, caramel and vanilla. On the palate it is medium in body with a silky smooth texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a very elegant barrel aged sour red ale. 2014-03-07 NeuroPliny (247) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Trappist glass. Cloudy dark red brown with moderate quickly fading head; nice lacing. Aroma is sour yeast, balsamic vinegar, and notes of toffee and ripe berry. Flavour is tart dried fruit, tarragon, oak, and sweet caramel malts. Well balanced sweetness, sourness, and tartness. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2014
2010 Vintage, pouring a copper brown body and initially a foamy brown head. Woody malts, dark fruit, sticky brown sugar and a sourish fermenting aroma. Very clearly present yet soft sourness in the taste, malty too, brown cane sugar. Very drinkable though and lovely developed. I dig it. (75cl bottle gift from Nico and Cecile, many thanks!)

Backlog. 2008 vintage tried at a Belgian-tasting. Sour with a good dose of brown sugar, dried fruits, some oak and cherries. MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Love this beer. It’s truly the epitome of what I love about sour beers at the moment. Clean tart sour flavors with just the right balance of sweet fruit. Pleasant yet powerful. I could drink this anytime, anywhere, gladly. BadAprilia1000 (436) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2014
2011 Vintage... Pours a dark ruby red with a average sized off-white colored head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is sour cherry, , apple, very tart, oaky vanilla, and something sugary but smooth. Taste is very tart green apple, big oak note, very juicy cherries, and a soft finish of vanilla. The palate is very drinkable. Great beer, awesome to have it aged back to when I first tried the Grand Cru. Ed5388 (3488) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Sampled at Big Brew Beer Festival (Morristown). 2011 Vintage. Poured a hazy amber color with a frothy tan head. Aroma funk, sour cherry, and nail polish remover. Taste is much the same. Really sour and tart black cherries, and lots of funk. CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
