hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Murky caramel-colored ale with a brief, fat-bubbled, white head. The aroma is a mélange of sour cherries, red wine and caramel along with a trace of oak. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor offers sour cherries, grape SweeTarts and dark wine layered upon a rumor of red wine vinegar. Finishes tart and fruity with only a suggestion of bread-crust bitterness. World class beer!

Huhzubendah (3405) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 18, 2012
The beer appears fairly hazy and auburn colored with only a faint trace of head that dissipates hastily. The aroma brings acetic and lactic funk, sourness, cherries, oak. A terrific smelling beer. The flavor is both tart and sour, with a lovely balance of oak, fruit, wine. A nice tannic, vinous chcracter throughout. Alcohol presence is there but well hidden. Carbonation is light with an acetic yet smooth feel on the palate. An elegant beer. I would happily have this again.

erickok (5171) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2012
Amber bodied with only a small beige lace. Punchy aroma, sour fruit, leather and some bay leave. Nice! Tasty fruit sourness, full flavoured, grapes and forest. Complex and rich. Like it a lot. (Bottle thanks to Menno and John)

sebletitje (9032) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2012
Draft @ Moeder Lambic, Fontainas. On retrouve ici le profile de la série, à savoir un bon coup de poing aigre/vinaigre. Couleur cuivrée, col épais beige. Arôme note aigre fruitée avec un léger vinaigre, le profile du vin blanc se fait noter que faiblement. 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 agrémentée ci et là par des notes boisées de chêne. Le tout se balance avec un caractère malté caramel qui perce accompagné d’un côté sucré et un brin de fruits noirs.

PhillyCraft (5486) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Sample at PH. Ultra puckery tart and funkiness, tons of cherries, cranberry, wood, tons of salivating funk in this one. Aroma was a little coppery but the taste was all complex sour. Very nice.

Een glas van ’t vat bij Chez Moeder Lambic. Ietwat moeilijk te omschrijven kleur maar ik zou zeggen granaatappel amber, wijnrood oranje, de kraag is vooral bubbels en slechts gedeeltelijk. De geur is zwaar geladen met redelijk zure azijn, zeer zure bessen, heel zure veenbessen en lichte citroen azijn. De smaak is een mix van zure azijn, heel zure veenbessen en bessen in het algemeen, de jam die er meer in het basisbier zat is zwaar geminderd hier en er is muffig hout bijgekomen, lichte bittere glühwein kruiden zitten ertussen, stof, bitter verrot hout met een lichtjes zoete mout, net zoals bij Nomad is de rijping op vaten vooral uitgedrukt hier in heel oud hout, zwaar verzuurd deeg proef ik ook, citroen azijn. Ik dacht dat ik zuur bier gewoon was maar dit is echt echt wel zuur, ik voel het echt wel. Bijna acetonisch. Mondgevoel is een beetje helder, nog altijd dat lichte jam gevoel en voller dan meeste zure bieren, niet al te veel koolzuur.

nimbleprop (7176) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2012
375ml bottle pours a hazy amber with some spitty head. Big, grapey, winey nose, candied orange, bitter greens, wood, chablis. Sweet flavor, malty, tart, sour, floral, grapes, vegetal, woody. Medium bodied, tart finish. Great wine character, not super complex but great grape-ness to it.
