5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2008 Need re-rate this beer is perfect, a 5 indeed.
3rd Beer of the Beer Spot Tasting Sunday March 30th, 2008. Bottle via trade with Marilibusi, 2007 vintage, I brought this one. This was a fun beer to open, we popped the cap, and the cork rose on its own and flew up high, we didn’t loose a drop but it was a fun momentous opening. Pour red/pink with an off white head. Nose is sweet adn blueberry and super duper tart and really nice. Taste is full of blueberry, acidic and pucker. The taste is pure pure blueberry no fucking around like most blueberry beers. Taste is truly amazing, sweet blueberries, by far the best blueberry beer ever and probably my favorite lambic fruit I’ve ever had.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2008 Bottle shared by Wetherel at the Fordest tasting. Aroma of real blueberries,some lambics can taste like artifical flavors, not this one, fresh blueberry aroma. Can it really taste as good as it smells? Oh yes, it can.

375 ml bottle shared by wetherel. Lots of blueberry aromas along with the delicious funk of a tart lambic. Flavors were serious blueberry. More blueberry on the finish with lots of tart funkiness to really give it a punch. Very very good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vintage 2007, I had it March 08. The color is very beautiful deep red and the head is huge, creamy, slightly pink and it leaves a thick lace. The aroma is quite sour, but not quite as sour as many Cantillion, and it doesn’t sting in the nose. It has notes of barnyard, horse blanket, damp basement and all the typical brett notes. The blue berries are not found, but berries, yes. The flavour has a dry sourness, and the same notes as in the aroma are found here too. The finish is dry.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2008 2007 Sample tasted at "Spring in the new year with brett" at fordests house. A great lambic. I loved the sour funk.
2005 Sampled at the Hold em for beer at Toncatchers house. Super sour funk in this one.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 Tasting, courtesy of Fordest’s event. Beer #5. 2007 vintage. Poured a purplish color with a small off-white head. The aroma is big with funk, yeast and fresh ripe blueberries. The flavor features a good blueberry character set in a spicy tart-sour backdrop. The mouthfeel is smooth and silky. The finish is long with lingering tart blueberries and a bit of brett. Overall: A simple yet complex concoction. Very nice. Note: Also tasted the 2005 vintage at a later tasting by Toncatcher. I found the 2005 to have lost most of its marvelous blueberry character--and was indeed overly sour.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tried at Fordest’s tasting. Bottle from fonefan on 11/14/07. Compared against Upland Blueberry lambic. Lots of funky horseblanket in the aroma. A lot less sour than the Upland, which is a good thing. Clear purple-red color. Some nice notes of blueberry in the aroma, and tiny particles floating in the beer. Dry, but an illusion of sweetness from the fruity characteristics. Tart like an under-ripe peach. Nice.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(on bottle 2007 edit.)This beer is made up of two wonderfull components, I shall hereafter call it Jaspis, after the stone and my son. On one side; tartness to the max, mellows out tho´, plenty of funk and a dirt/stable/must aroma from heaven. On the other hand; fruityness and rouded, yet subtle, geenish and firm; blueberries right from the garden. If the two of them mingle, I can´t say, could have been more combined; but this beer is a sure winner, kudo Jeppe.
