4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Medium cloudy orange-brown body with sediment, thin to medium cream head with excellent retention and lacing. Tart nose, cobwebby and dusty with horse blanket and earth, lemony, a celebration of earth and grain, simply fantastic. Herbal, grassy, funky body with fermented, sour grain; dusty, mainly dry with cobwebby earth and dry oak. Lingering sour, dry finish. Bright, complex and astounding, a fantastic beer, one of the finest I have had the pleasure to sip.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2012 Super funky moldy grapefruit rind nose with lots of cracker malts and honey. The nose is amazing. The taste is less funky and more sweet than the nose let on. Itís actually rather mild. Lots of citrus, some cheese and yogurt, but just a ton of honey and golden fruits. Itís a very nice lambic and it should age quite well.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL Bottle. Thanks to Sean for sharing. Strong sulfury nose, thatís very potent edging on ripe brushed rind cheese, flint, and horseys. Sharp tang up front. I donít think the flavors push the way the aroma does. Reminds me very much of the near-olive pickled quality that older unblendeds have. I like this, but I think itís not quite as.incredible as the hype makes it oit to be. Sharper than I expect from Drie, more like a Hanssens.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Mike. Enjoyed side by side with Zomer. Pours like bright copper pipe that has been scraped and cleaned with wire brush; foamy, fizzling white head, big bubbled, gone within a few moments. Aroma is outrageously funky, tart, and fruity. Tart lemon, barnyard, sweaty funk, musty cork and cellar floors, sharp apple skins, vinegar and acidity about, gets your saliva glands rolling.
Taste is more of the same, funky lemons, tart and sweaty yeast clumps, wet oak, horseblanket, sour stone fruits, white grape skins, a hint of vinegar and more finishing acidity. Sharp, acidic mouth feel with a dry, dry, dry finish; prickly and effervescent on the palate. So damn good, funk and tartness that canít be replicated.
