Arve_Christian (4844) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
75 cl bottle at Sandar Mikrobryggeri. Clear golden color, good foam. High aroma intensity; stable; autumn leaves- great yeast influence also light cherries in the finish. Medium body & high complexity. Great sourness & good bitterness; well balanced. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strykzone (6763) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Sampled at Shep’s Diaper Party. A big tick here and a good one! Begins with a blast of funk in the mouth that quickly settled and all kinds of interesting stuff emerged. Lemon and grass, citrus, must, and at the finish, salt. Really good.

ippopotamo36 (1771) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 23, 2015
0,75 bottle, an unique and apparently retired jewel that mortlach shared with me at La Tana pub in Rome-Italy. Grazie! The beer pours a semi-filtered cornish color which is very hard to define (never seen such a unique appearance in any of the beers I have drunken before). The cap is medium-low with gassy big bubbles and a yellow-orange reflex. Fantastic. The nose is complex: wild-red fruits, oak barrel, fruity (peach). Mouth is terrific: a background of round maltiness in a balanced sour drink. Berries, wood! Bravo!

hopdog (11653) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2015
750ml bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an off white head. Citrus, overall mustiness, barnyard funkiness, some woodiness and brett. Very drinkable and very nice.

Compared with the Hertst - Bottles shared by Armand, Michael & Lydie. Summer pours cloudy light orange with a good steady head. Very subtle funk nose, nice oaky touches. Silky smooth body, full mouthfeel, incredible balance. Taste is fine malts, soft funk and a lot of soft oak. Herfst is a tad darker in colout and more vibrant in the nose; some more citrus and fruity esters. A bit more carbonation makes this excellent lambic more lively and fresh, but ever so marvelous.

This poured a light orange with a white head. Aroma was light barn, mineral, earthy, and pitted fruit. Flavor was light acid, asprin, peachey skins, and earth. Good but not amazing.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2016 Bottle in a trade with Dan. Pours a cloudy orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of slight rubber, floral. Acetic aromas. Taste is sour with an interesting almost medicinal. Slight sweetness. Med high carb. 2nd time around I don’t get the medicinal test. Tried side by side with Lente and Herfst. This ranked #3 but was still fairly refined. Maybe the extra years helped. There was still a very slight nutty/tea-like finish.
