Bottle poured into a wine stem. Enjoyed 12/7/2013. Pour is a deep magenta with a wispy pink head, which recedes to a rim. Some effervescence. Smell is bright, juicy raspberries, cobwebs and funky blue cheese. Quite jammy. Huge raspberry profile carries over to the taste, with an additional increase in the level of cheesy funk. Quite sour. A bit of lactic creaminess, and a touch of oak on the finish. Very drinkable, despite being more sour than I expected. A top notch lambic for sure, but I think some additional time will do this well.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle @ Epic Sour Sourpuss Tasting, massive thnx to kermis for sharing this. 2011 vintage. Pours a murky pinkish beer with a small beige-ish, off white head on top. Aroma is a massive raspberry bomb together with some wild yeast, moldy red fruits and hay. Wow this is wild for sure! Flavor is medium sour, shining trough are the raspberries and fruityness of this beer. Very well balanced, complex and easy drinkable. This beer is the reasons why lambics are so well thought off. Very well crafted, very enjoyable, amazing beer!!

kermis (5069) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle shared at the epic sour sourpuss tasting (thanks to trade with gEUS). Pours a murky red brown with a small pinkish head. Massive raspberries coming straight out in the aroma along with barnyard. I don’t just mean barnyard like a lot of sours have barnyard, I mean absolutely full on, I really am down the farm (with raspberries) barnyard. Manure, hay, jam, earth, horse blanket. Flavor is light to moderate sweet and moderate acidic. Some lemon citrus aspects lingering in the palate in the long dry finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Yes this is excellent. Really good.

Bottle shared with Jay, James, Nicole, and beerman6686. Pours a deep pinkish-red with a small-medium off-white head. Aroma is fresh raspberries, raspberry jam, raspberry seeds, with a nice funk but little acidity. Taste follows suit, lightly tart, nicely sweet with lots of raspberry and cheesy funk. Finish is dry, with a some lingering funk and acidity. Really a beautiful beer, and it absolutely lives up to the hype. Rate 300!

2011 vintage. Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks a lot guys! Pour is hazy red with minimal white head. Aroma has lots of raspberries and other berries, funk, light cheezy notes (way less than first time i had it last year), tart. Taste is mainly raspberries, funk, oak, little cheezy, barnyard, little sweet. Light body. Very good! A lot better than first time.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
750ml at a tasting big thanks to JulienHuxley.
Appearance : Ruby red with small head.
Aroma : Big raspberries, light syrupy cherry-ish notes. Light raspberries leaves and light funk. Moderate lactic acidity. Big big fruits.
Taste : Big fruity raspberries with light raspberry leaves. Light cough syrup notes. Dry and sharp raspberries. Finish is quite persistent
Palate : Average carbonation.
Overall : Really glad I could try this. Very nice intense raspberries. Like biting the fruit itself. Nice complexity coming in the form of green-ish leaves. Nice finish. Fairly similar to Hommage IMHO. Can’t say this was better than hommage though. I was hoping for a bit more funk perhaps but the fruit is probably really dominating the base lambic. All in all a truly great beer but I guess I was expecting a bit more from such a big whale.
