375mL bottle, sent from Gregg657 (thanks a lot, Pete), pours an opaque cloudy pinkish orange amber with a small, quickly-dissipating white head. Nose brings out an authentic lambic barnyard funk, followed by cherries, and a touch of horse blanket. Flavour is that of a pretty damn authentic lambic, with a little more alcoholic kick, revealing notes of funk, dry tart cherries, brett and a little alcohol. Really robust and very Belgian-esque - would stack up amongst the best of them. Very elegant and a pleasure to drink. A shame itís just a one-off rarity.

Pink pour. Small white head. No lacing. Stout aroma of cherries and a bit of rotten fruit. Taste is a tart cherry. Way better than the aroma.

Bottle shared by LeninCat @ Arminís - thanks! Slightly hazy light pink pour. Looks really nice. Tart cherry nose and taste. Not much else going on. Nice, but not too much going on.

Courtesy of Ron

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy sweet and lightly tart cherry with light lemon and some light funky notes. It pours a a dull pinkish-orange with a small pinkish-white head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet cherries. The finish quickly turns to moderate-heavy lemon, light oak, and tart cherry.

tectactoe (1169) - Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle: thanks, Ron! Muddled orange & amber with a quickly fizzling white head. Aroma is tart & lactic forward. Sour lemons, cherries, light apple, with a mild vinous & slight oak character backing it all up. Faint sweat sock funk in the finish. Taste is sour lacto without much burning acidity at all. Light tart cherries & some sour lemon flesh. A touch of oak & a biting, slight tartness in the finish. Not much funk in the flavor, this one is mostly just tart. Dry finish, very nice stuff.
