4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
August 13, 2011 - draught at Craft Beer Co. How awesome is it that I got to have this before the keg kicked! Things were a little hectic when I rated this, but I have to say my lasting impression is ... MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! Hazy gold with minimal head. Aroma is a really nice subtle and balanced sweet generically fruity malt nicely balanced against a funky/yeasty acidic sourness with musty dry oak - yumm. The taste? well, 10%? not to my taste - perfect balance of complex acidity, funky/dusty-dry oak and enough almost syrupy sweet background .... whatever it is .... to keep it from melting my tooth enamel - frickin lovely stuff, I am sad I will never have it again. Thick, acidic, lively mouthfeel, long dry acidic finish, leaves a buzzing palate and memories of the barrel. Amazing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Craft Beer Co. Orange-amber color, flat and glowing. Lovely nose: grapefruit, yogirt, dust, rich malts, and touch of caramel and all kinds of fruit. Big sweet-and-sour flavor, with yogurt, wood, grapefruit and its zest, apricot, and almost canned peaches. Unbelievably drinkable for 9.9%! I’ve never had anything like it, a strong, easy-drinking lambic. Really great. Prefect light carbonation as well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at MesandSim’s crazy wedding party & at the Craft Beer Co! It pours clear orange, with no head or carbonation. The nose is farmyard, red apple, strawberry, salt and vinegar. The taste is tart lemon and lime, orange zest, mango, farmyard, eggy tartness, sour Granny Smith apple and pear, with a moderate tart finish. The flavour is very balanced and I still can’t believe that this is 10%, it was just so drinkable.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2011 It’s amazing I remember drinking this because I kept up while Alex actually managed to get Chris hungover drunk. Thanks man! Translucent red-amber, thin white head, small bubbled. Lightly acetic nose brings cherry, also has rubber band brett. Acetic flavor shows some acetone, balsamic cherry, brown sugar. Sticky body, moderate carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Boon born to be wild. on tap at mikkeller... Pours a deeper apple
cidery orange brown pour. Thin flimsy barely just off-white head...
Aroma of sharp, mostly sour gueuze aroma, somewhat green still and
fresh... Flavors are sharp and sour, not acidic. Curly akin to a
sweeter gueuze. Resembles 3fomt straffe winter as a stronger, boozy
type of lambic. Heavier bodied for a sour given the strength but
doesn’t take away from it overall. Pretty lively carbonation that
holds up well actually.
