3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample from bottle, CBF 2014. Deep red colour with a dense, pink head. Fruity aroma with tart cherries, caramel malts, vanilla, oak, yeasts, barnyard, some earthy hops. Taste is light sour. Medium body with a lively carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with tart cherries, fruits, yeasts and marzipan that chases most acidic notes away. Albeit a bit on the sweeter side, a very enjoyable Lambic.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 2008 vintage. Pours a deep ruby port color with almost no head. Aroma is deep and rich: red wine, musty cork, oak, cherry skins, plum, appetizing tartness. Oak and barrel character is especially pronounced. Taste is prominent sour cherry and grape skin tannins with a hint of balsamic, oak, and an almost Sour Patch-like sweet-tart quality. Really good.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled from Burg Bieren, 2011 harvest, BB 13 07 2032, large sample, served in a chouffe glass. Initially clear ruby color, big frothy pink head, diminishing to a firm medium lasting head. Aroma of cherry, marzipan, some horseblanket and barnyard, some oak wood. Quite sour in taste, slight fruity sweetness. Mostly citric acid and some lactic acid. Some nutty cherry pits in flavor as well. Quite full bodied, high on carbonation but not in a too disturbing way. Slight alcohol noticeable and slight dry in the finish. Quite heavy on the stomach, but still a lovely brew, although I prefer still (fruit)lambic instead of carbonated stuff.

10/IV/14 - 37.5cl bottle from??? @ home - BB: n/a, 2008 vintage (2014-358)
Little cloudy deep dark ruby red beer, big pink aery head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of cork, some marzipan, soft fruitiness, bit funky. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sour start, fruity cherries, mouldy cork, very bitter, lemon rind, citric acidity. Aftertaste: pretty sour, lemony, bitter hops, moulded cork, some bitter almonds, vinegar. Talk about a disappointment. :( I guess it had a bad cork? Should re-rate, I guess.
