Golden with a white head. Really sour aroma with notes of dust. Champagne-ish palate. Really sour and surprisingly bitter.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 5, 2011
750ml bottle. Phone rate. Brilliant hazy orange color with shimmering white bubbles. Salty tart lemons and light cheese with some grapefruit rind notes; sour, mouthwatering. Lively, crisp carbonation; sour lemon, salty, and moderate acidity; perfect presence in the mouth; doesn’t show the viscosity of the zomer. Magnificent. Long, tart dry finish.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2011
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.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2011
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. It’s actually rather mild. Lots of citrus, some cheese and yogurt, but just a ton of honey and golden fruits. It’s a very nice lambic and it should age quite well.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 30, 2011
750mL Bottle. Thanks to Sean for sharing. Strong sulfury nose, that’s very potent edging on ripe brushed rind cheese, flint, and horseys. Sharp tang up front. I don’t 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 it’s not quite as.incredible as the hype makes it oit to be. Sharper than I expect from Drie, more like a Hanssens.

Habanero (3174) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottled. Pours a hazy amber with an average, off-white head. Aroma of brett, notes, barnyard, some citrus, caramel and dried fruit. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and a little tart. Medium body, watery o oilytexture and soft carb, A very nice and smooth Lambic.

abemorsten (3148) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2011
Shared bottle at the RBNAG-11 grand tasting. Hazy golden with a white rim. Fruits, berries, light notes vinegar and wood on the nose. Acidic, fruity and grapefruit bitter flavors with a hint of chlorine. Medium body. Astringent

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2013
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 can’t be replicated.

Marsiblursi (3052) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2011 (Bottle) Pours hazy dark golden to amber with an off-white head. The aroma is of tart pineapple esters, Thai-food (coconut milk, lemon grass and mild chilly), rubber, peppery mold, wood, cheese, smoke/incense, horse blanket, celery, new cut grass, rhubarb, lime, lemon and grapefruit. The nose is well-balanced and well-structured. The flavor is dry and medium to heavily acidic with almost no bitterness. Tones of citrus, light fruits, light brett, lacto, wood, cheese and mold. Bit too much “pukeiness”. The mouthfeel is soft and tart with a light to medium carbonation. Citric and bretty finish. Near medium bodied.
