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...

En mycket trevlig öl, fruktig och syrlig på samma gång. Röda bär som exploderar i munnen, en upplevelse

Bottles shared at Sovereign on their second night of Feb 5th and again on Zwanze Day 2016 (thanks Huhzubendah for the latter!). Cloudy red with a hint of head. Awesome rich and funky barnyard and berry fruit on the nose, taste follows with funk and brite berries, yeast, wood. Along with Fou’Foune, best lambic aroma I have experienced. Awesome.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sample @ SBWF. Aroma is just amazing with notes of strawberries, funk, mushrooms and chewing gum! Wow! Taste is equally drinkable and complex. Not too fruity, but fruity enough. Unique even for a 3F beer. This is close to a perfect 5!
