4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle shared by Bill at the Philly tasting. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Stank ass feet aromas. Sour with citrus notes and some vanilla and oak from the barrels. Medium acidity, medium body, with wonderful balance. Had this side by side with Crianza and LH12. It might be my favorite of the three.

Flaska på Akkurat - Stockholm 2011
Lite diskret doft. Aning spritig och söt.
Inte mycket syrlighet och även frukten är borta. Ganska strev och torr vätska

Bottle at Akkurat, January 2012. Vintage 2007.
Hazy golden with a small white head. Pleasant , rather soft sour aroma with oak, cognak and fruit. Tha taste was sour, but not extremely sour. Dry with grass, citrus some apples and oak. Also notes of "Cognac". This was an interesting and rather complex beer. Not as tasty as Cantillon Reed Gueuze Pinot Noir that we drank the same night but still very good.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle @ Akkurat on December 16. Bottled 2007 and stored in their basement. Pours hazy golden with a small creamy white head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace. Smell is sour with a clear cognac character to it. There’s also green apples, vanilla, gastric acid, farmyard, leather and hay. Taste is dry, sour, slightly sweet and slightly bitter with cognac, apples, grass, vanilla, wood, hay, pears, gooseberries and slight hints of cacao and oxidation. Carbonation is low. Finish is very dry, tart and slightly bitter with cognac and gooseberries. Being a big fan of cognac and lambic I find the two marry perfectly in this beer. It’s intense, complex and amazing.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2012 Bottle at Akkurat. Stockholm, 30th September 2011.
Sourish and quite sweet aroma of hay, barnyard, sweat, and oak. Beneath that fruity and sweet notes of syrup, pears, apples and vanilla. The brew is smooth and soft but quite light bodied. Some flavours of age and light oxidation. Apples, some sour tart but not the normal funkiness. Some alcohol coming through in the taste together with more vanilla and wood. Very interesting!
