3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at post NotB tasting 09 vintage i believe. Huge foaming head, almost looks infected. Brown pour with that tan head. Raspberry and lactic aroma and flavor, this lambic isn’t that funky or mouth puckering as what I’m used to.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A dry acidic/tart fruity beer. Just decent.
How: Bottles 750ml. Post-EBF 2010 tasting #1 and #2 with east-coast crew. Two different vintages
The look: Cloudy dark purple body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose is sharp and fruity. Taste is acidic and tart, fruity (not focussed on cranberry), dusty attic, papery. No real depth here, just a sharp spiky acidic fruit beer with a little bothersome flavours (paper mainly). We had two different vintages with different labels. I only took notes on the first one but I think the second one was more rounded and less razorblade sharp. Anyway, both were just ok. I found that the two different vintages we drank were quite different from each another. Especially the first one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Ryan’s Midtown Hotel room tasting post EBF 2010: 2008 version. Murky brown/amber pour with a creamy tan head. Sweet raspberry aroma- mild lactic tartness and toasted malt undertones. Fluffy body with some mild raspberry tartness and a touch of malt roast presence. Missing the funk and dryness of a true Lambic.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle of the 09 at Ryan’s hotel room after EBF’s Night of the Barrels. Pours a hazy brown with a large infected looking beige head. Cardboard, packing peanuts, and a bit of sour funk. A very faint hint of cranberry at the very end of the aromas, but I think it’s only because my nose knows to search it out. Sour, but more so in the infected way, malty. Tannic. Not terrible, but not amazing either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle, ’08 vintage from zathrus13, thanks! Dark dense red color with a tan head. Light fruity cranberry aroma with a little wood in there as well. Seems a bit thin but did have a nice little tart cranberry flavor though with a real pleasant cranberry aftertaste. Not bad, but I would have liked a bit more body too it. (1143)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a thin murky pale brown.
Nose is earthy, cranberry is there, but also lots of woodiness, oak, and mild horseblanket.
Taste was... ....well, didnt taste like a lambic. Not very sour or tart. Slightly acetic, good amount of cranberry flavor without making it too fruity, lots of flavors of burnt wood, toast, and some sweet malt.
