3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled sample shared with oakbluff. Gold in colour with haze and strong spritzy carbonation. Aromas are of Meyer lemon, wintergreen?, wet wood, and barnyard. Woody upfront in the mouth, along with funk, nettles, and a bit of iron. Moderately weighted body, with a good tart to sour balance. Not as refined as the Lente, but still very good.

750ml bottle shared @La Tana (Rome) with ippopotamo36. Pours a cloudy light amber color with a medium foam. Aroma is fantastic, wild yeasts, barnyard, oak, some balsamic notes and alpine flowers, wow! Flavour is rich and complex, very sour and rustic, powerful and persistent in the mouth. Medium body, medium to light carbonation. Exciting and unique.

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

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

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.
