BMMillsy (1148) - Florida, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle from Tipples. A bunch of these randomly showed up on the shelf and I guess I was there at the right time. $21.99 for this 375 ml bottle dated Apr 13, 2012. Poured to a wine glass Orange gold colored with essentially no head. Just a few bubbles. A dusty bit to start the aroma, oak, a tad of a mint character, sweet sugars, and a bit of fruit. Flavor is very sour, almost juicy with a dry finish, lots of puckering here, some sweet sugars, fruit, lingering oak, very acidic. Mouthfeel is full bodied with low carbonation and a dry finish. Reminds me of an Unblended lambic with a bit more bubbly. Good stuff, very smooth, but I think I like the regular version better.

Habanero (2166) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of barnyard, horse blanket caramel, wood notes and vinegar. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carb. A great Lambic.

375 ml bottle. April 13 2002 date on bottle. Pours lovely. Big apple tart bite. Apples and light vinegar. Peach finish. That lingering tartness that sits like a pillow in the mouth. Awesome.

Benzai (6432) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT 9 thanks to Martinus. Clear golden color, no head. Aroma has citrus and a touch of white wine, slightly a touch of rubber. Taste has a touch of sour and influence of white wine. Quite dry. Not sharp at all, quite soft. Very nice indeed, but less sour than I head expected. Lovely though.

Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells heavy sour. Tastes mild sour. Very nice sweet finish. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture. Nice but could be more sour.
