3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle picked up at the brewery in Alpine. Pretty good for an unblended lambic, if thatís your thing. Pours dead still, no head or carbonation bubbles. No bottle-conditioning here. Looks like hazy apple-juice. Really nice acetic aroma of red wine, white grapes and oak. Nice amount of sourness, not overly puckering or weak. Drying finish that leaves a tart and earthy oak finish. A bit of sting in the back of the throat. Pretty good, but I think I prefer the blended lambics that have a more mellowed and yeasty finish.

gold pour with no head. Aroma is vinager, oak, funk. Very strong, mmmmmm! Flavor is a little more toned down. Wine tannins, oak, dust, nail polish remover. Acidic, tart, yum! The carbonation is lacking this from standing out as elite, but very good.

375ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow/honey color with no head. Smells lemony and yeasty, with red wine and maybe a hint of wood. Tastes of sweet wine flavors and a little bit of wood up front and then as you swallow the sourness really hits. Some citrus type flavors, lemony. Very acidic, gives me that indigestion feeling in my gullet. Pretty good sour. Maybe medium body, hard to tell if itís actually carbonated or not.

Flat, yellowish and dull-looking. Lemony nose with some spiderwebs. Sweet front with a tart finish. Clean lactic. Gripping late acidity, perhaps lacking a bit of complexity.

Rate beer rating # 4,600. 375ml bottle acquired in trade with Dunk (thanks!). Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with no head. Aromas of wood, some funkiness, vinous, light citrus, and some vanilla. Tastes of vanilla, lighter vinous quality, citrus, some funk, and some wood. Light tart finish. Very soft body with almost no carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle acquired from the infamous South Bay Drugs. Viewed as a strawberry wine cooler color of pink with a fizzy layer of foam. Actually the entire brew is a wild and fizzy form of carbonation and bubbles. The nose was confused and debated whether the scent of fruit or malt and alcohol dominated more over the other but regardless an interesting aroma. Upon the first sip, I partially quivered because of tart the initial first taste was, although, further in the drink I became comfortable with the sourness and also became aware of how excited the carbonation levels were. Flavors range from a mixture of elements such as unripe partly green strawberry, stiff freshly picked red cherry, and a minor background of wine. No sign of the wood barrels involved but the wine was apparent and also tasted similar to a wine cooler beverage to some degree.

Bottled - tasted blind. A murky dark golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is acidic with notes of brettanomyces, citrus, and wood. The flavor is acidic bretty combined with citrusy notes and light notes of wood, leadint to a tart finish. The acidity burns slightly in the throat. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
No head, orange beer with a metallic reflection. Very hard lambic nose, lactic, lemon, but also acetic, with some peeking phenols. Very lemony taste, some leathery Brett flavour. Tart as nothing else. Flat as a pancake - or an old lambic. Acidburn. In Belgium we would call this a harde lambic. But it is remarkably straightforward.

Poured a murky golden color with no head or lacing left on the glass. Aroma of brett, citrus fruits, vanilla, grass, and white grapes. Taste of grapes, green apples, some cinnamon, vanilla, and a lengthy sour finish. Thanks for sharing Steve!
