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.

On tap at 4:20 bar in Rome. Copper with vague haze. Lasting white head. Sour characterful aroma. Really interesting in mouth with a mixture of wood and blue cheese. Really in teresting and really quite lovely. Alcohol makes it a little sweet I guess. But took me ages to drink just because it was interesting.
