Tap @ Mikkeller Aarhus as Foeder 97. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma has lots of funk - like a dusty basement. Also some apples, horse blankets, barnyard and some oak. The taste has sweet malts, lots of funk, apples, weak sweet pears, oak and sweet blood orange. Awesome stuff to sip on.

JorgeLee (1572) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2015
On tap at Engelbewaarder. Cloudy yellowy amber colour, thin white foam. Sharp, tart, and yet also sweet. Very quenching. I’d say as lambics go relatively tart rather than too funky, not as complex maybe as a Cantillon, maybe easier to drink beyond the initial tartness. Pretty good.

kidmartinek (4161) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2015
This one is draught at TAP Mong Kok, and listed at 7.0%. It’s very cloudy apricot color. The head is pure white. Aroma is sour with hints of old oak. It looks like beer made from malt, not fruit, but is still quite sour and dry. Very smooth and full palate. Rich character of passion fruit and rind.
