Bottle at Chris_o Shindig. You see, this is good and I much prefer something to this to the Cantillon Blabaer that I had before. This has more balanced sourness and good funk. Excellent fruit. Really gorgeous funk and sourness.

Bottle@chris_o. Soft but complex aroma of oak, barnyard, wheat and sourness. Hazy, yellow color, off-white head, fair lace. Sour, sweet, bitter, oak, barnyard, yep it’s all there and in the right amounts. Soft but woody dry finish. Very well balanced but amazingly complex.

Ughsmash (7465) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Bottled at Heeren van Liedekercke, Rating #1600.

Poured a clear coppery golden with a tall, sticky, and creamy cap of white head. The aroma was much more upfront and complex than the Rose with a huge lemon and vinegar presence.. deep, lightly-spiced fruits abound and are well-complemented by dusty barnyard notes.

The flavor was characterized by sharper lemon and acidic notes backed by some tart wheat.. freshly-sliced lighter fruits dance across the middle and through the long, tangy finish.. powerful and expertly-executed! Tangy on the palate with phenominal balance.. long, dry, and very refreshing finish. Masterful!

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
Bottle. Wow. This is as close to perfect as i have had. This had a really farmy aroma, with some sour fruityness and woody dryness in the aroma. First sip is fantastic. Dry and sour, but softly so. Mouthfeel is round, lightly puckery, with some dry woody characters, earthy hop notes and citric sourness. Really fantastic. The flavour seems to go forever and the carbonation is nice and soft. It was a shame i only had one bottle of this, i really didn’t want it to end. Nice one.
