4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opened in celebration of the 2012 Presidential Election, November 6 with my wonderful wife. Ive been hanging on to this bottle for roughly 3 years now. 2007 vintage is marked on the bottle. Cork comes out with a faint pop, pours a hazy golden cherry color with fine carbonation and a thin ring of head. Immediate aroma of acetic acid, funky cheese and sour cherry. The power of the aroma is nearly overwhelming. Barnyard and must is all over the nose. I cant believe how tart this is even with the age. The flavor is less intense than the aroma, with a dry sweet blend of cherry and dried grass. Flavor profile transitions from sweet to bitter cheese and yeasty biscuit, but incredibly complex. Undertones of old oak wood, wheat, peppercorn, rosemary and lemon zest. The finish is light and dry with a tingly carbonation sting on the palate. Overall a delightful drinking experience, the unbalanced aroma dinged it in my book, but the complexity gives it points. Well worth the wait, now we’ll have to see what the bugs in this beer do to my bowels tomorrow morning...

My bottle, at our super tasting. Red pour with brown/copper hue and just a hair thick ring of white foam around the perimeter. Aroma is quite citric, lots of old raspberries, subtle cherry aromas, strong leathery funk. Taste is citric, tart, lots of berry tartness, the fruit comes off fresher than in the aroma. Palate is fairly dry despite the fruitiness, carbonation is rather low for the style. Very good, but not mindblowing.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks Julien & Pier-Luc! Murky orange/brown with reddish reflects, little to no head and some lacing. Aroma of fainted raspberries, cherries with tart and barnyard notes. Taste is of fresh raspberries (much more than aroma), cherries, other red fruits, tart and leather. Dry and astringent mouthfeel. One of the best fruited lambic I’ve tasted so far, it lived up to my high expectations.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Ugly pour, very murky/dirty brownish, dark red. Musty basement, earthy, funky, tart raspberry, and slight vinegar. Good bit of raspberry left in this beer. It’s tart and seedy. It worked well with the musty, earthy, funk and sourness. Light carbonation and medium body. Tried side by side with the 2011 framboos. I prefered the aroma and flavor much more of this than the framboos.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to travlr for sharing the bottle! This would have been an extremely enjoyable beer to drink, except for the fact that fuckin bee flew into my ear while I was sipping my glass and made me spill a bunch of it! Serious funk on the nose. You can smell the sourness of the cherries. One finger head that leaves beautiful lacing. Tastes of straw, barnyard, and especially ripe red fruits. Taste lasts for days. Med-heavy carb, but with nice fine champagne-like bubbles. One hell of a beer!
