rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, - APR 7, 2013
Bottled. Amber color with rich frothy foam. Dry woody nose with hints of oak, grapefruit, smokey phenols and brett. Flavour is dry woody and grapefruity, with notes of goat cheese,smokey phenols, ripe green apple and oak. Good acidity here. Musty mouthfeel. Almost puckering mouthfeel due to the tannins and dryness. Really complex.

Mortlach (1102) - Rome, ITALY - APR 5, 2015
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.

Arve_Christian (3591) - 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 (5337) - 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 (604) - 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 (9537) - 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.

gEUS (1345) - Linden, BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2014
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.

Beerman6686 (5053) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2014
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.
