SinH4 (2573) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2016
Bottled 30/06/2015. Purple aroma with small head. Very viscous. Aroma is raspberry jam, syrupy and thick. Feels natural, though. Taste is a lot of raspberry jam, tart, but exactly the right level of tartness. Finish is sour, but just refreshing. Not so much of the typical 3 Fonteinen rubber/bread funk character. Extremely nice carbonation. Very intense fruit. Very good stuff, but not as stellar as I’d hoped for.

ciocanelu (1137) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 22, 2016
Hazy red color with pink head. Aroma is really fruity with raspberry, strawberry and sour cherries. Also nice farmhouse funky notes. Taste follows with intense fruits, sour and funky, well balanced and easy to drink. Medium body with high effervescence. Really good one, fruity, funky and tasty.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2016 Potentielt eneste seriøse rating. Batch #2 Fantatisk hindbær og kirsebær i næsen, latterligt skarpt! Røde bær og velvære til væsken rammer helt bagerst i oropharynx. Aldrig har mine smagsløg været så overrasket og efterfølgende komatøse!
