Barrel aged Sour Ale from Lienne, with an ABV of 7.5%. New brew for me.

Pours a lovely ruby copper golden with a large bubbly head. Not much lacing.

Sharp, tart, sherry, vinegar, wine, and woody aroma.

It's thinnish bodied, although the mouthfeel is quite filling as it's highly carbonated with an almost fizzy effervescence. Complex, and with great depth of flavour. At its coldest it's sharp, tart, sour, lactic, acidic and dry, with a puckering finish. There's malts, honey, caramel, wood, sherry, apple skin, and molasses, and with a sweet-dry interplay throughout. As it warms it mellows significantly with a more subtle blend of flavours, and some grains appear. Easy drinking, refreshing, rewarding. Outstanding brew!

Cheers!

Hi Viv,
Seems like a great beer to me. This is one of their limited editions.



And what a special label this is, featuring a carcass of a goat, which made me thinking why there was that need for a goat??



But you can see that the goat is everywhere on their labels and even on their beautiful brewing machine.

Actually, this comes from that legend, called "The Fairy of La Lienne and the Golden Goat"
