beerbastard (669) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2014
330 bottle, pouring very dark brown. Dark fruit with a mixture of chocolates, coffees, some cherry in the background, with a mild funk soaring all over the top of this. A mild, yet complex sour blend of chocolate malts, roast, lite coffee and more dark fruit. As a Porter this stands on its own as being very good. Then you add in the Lambic yeast twist, it kicks it up a notch. Bammm!!

Bottled @ derat, large sample. Dark color, medium light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts with loads of bretty fruitiness, strawberry, yoghurt, bit horseblanket. Slight sour in taste, but mostly creamy milky brettiness with some chocolate and roast. Wonderful beer.

TXBadger (1217) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Had this at a share. Dark on the pour, complex aroma, a lot going on: cocoa, some brett character, a little coffee. Starts off tart on the palate, then I got some dark fruit with a tart finish. Pretty good and interesting beer.

BoostIPA (1182) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 21, 2014
33cl bottle from craftshack. Pours a thn looking dark brown with almost no head. Aromas of powdery chocolate, some milkshake going on. Taste is slightly bitter and semi funky. Flavors of chocolate milk mixed with banana smoothie. Medium-high carbonation. Quite a lot going on in this one. Some very light lambic flavors develop as it warms. A very interesting beer, but not something I would seek out again.

Good experiment! Acid and burnt malt in the aroma. Creamy mouthfeel, with a sour finish. Milky and roasty.
