Draft at Churchkey. This is going to amount to purely a sour tick for me. Classic notes on this beer just like all of the other vintages; deep plum colored pour with dark fruit sweetness and big vinous sweetness mixed with red wine vinegar and nice biting sour character. Boozy, delicious.

Draft @ Moeder Lambic, Fontainas. Probablement une de mes moins préférées de la série, étant habitué à recevoir un bon coup de poing aigre/vinaigre, je reste un peu sur ma soif. Couleur cuivrée, col épais beige. Arôme note aigre fruitée avec un léger vinaigre qui a du mal à percer. Palais, se boit toujours facilement malgré les 11%, ici aussi, le profile vinaigre tant espéré peine à venir, ceci étant dit, il n’est pas absent. Il est là, mais j’en voulais plus. Ce dernier donne tout de même un petit coup de gorge pour une fin de bouche légèrement vinaigrée. Le tout se balance avec une dominance maltée caramel avec un côté sucré et un brin de fruits noirs. Une bière qui pourrait évoluer avec le temps? en tout les cas, je garde ma bouteille en cave, et à voir dans qcq mois ce qu’il en deviendra.

been wanting to try one of these for a while // finally I would say // 25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic // very dark pomegranate, off-white head, neat appearance // smell is rich sour jam, berries, fruit liquer, both s & t have an element to me that oddly for me feels like a sour La Trappe O.A. 3, vinegar, wood // taste is round, soft, jammy straight lime, strawberry jam, berry jam, quite heavy on the strawberries. vinegar, wood, almost spirit like in the ending, sourness sinks in, malty // jammy body // yeah

Fun, interesting, intense vinous beer that was doing it before it was cool. Enjoyed on draft at the Beer Kitchen in KC. Hazy, ruddy amber color. Nose of tart cherries, raspberries, and schnapps. Tart taste, not quite sour, but rather an even acidity that rolls into malty body and a faint saccharine note. Mild bitterness and some alcohol warmth.

Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering Ulfborg, 2012. Pours unclear golden with a small white head. Berries, oak, fruit, brett and caramel. Nice and pleasant as always.

2011? I can only assume. Enjoyed on tap at Ebenezer’s Pub. Orange, wild, yeasty, tart, A little apple cider, a sipper that was a delicious drinkable sour. Big Lace.
