This was great. Courtesy of a European Santa I believe. Nose is what you’ve heard - tart blueberry, vinegar, tannin, candi sugar. Color is a very fetching reddish purple with beautiful lacy violet head. Flavor is like the nose - like a thin, tart jam. Not the peppery, mouldy depth of a 3F Vintage, but formidable yeasty age plus very good fruit.

I don’t see how this helps to promote lambic. I see that it helps to promote you, but that’s not enough for me.

Med ölföreningen, vintage 2013 köpt på Ölbutikken. Smak och doft av fina blåbär, slånbär, jäst, skog och lingonris. Sträv, torr och kärv. Hypad men kanske förtjänar detta då här finns riktigt fina blåbärstoner.

Vignale (1797) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2014
2013 vintage från Ölbutikken. Vinröd vätska, torr, stram, lätt oxiderad och rejält syrlig med smak av blåbär, lite bigaråer och körsbärskärnor. Rätt så tydlig efterbeska som jag tycker är bra. Riktigt bra, men inte på något sätt exeptionell. Men jag kan någonstans ändå tycka att den förtjänar att vara hypad så upplevelsen att dricka den är större än smaken.

28/II/14 - 37.5cl bottle @ home - 2011 vintage BB: n/a (2014-230) Thanks to Yespr for the bottle!

Clear deep ruby red beer, big fizzy light pink head, unstable, dissipates quickly, non adhesive. Aroma: pretty dirty, unpleasant smell, just a little fruity, sourish. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, very sour, funky notes, bit dirty, blueberries, tannins, sour. Aftertaste: fruity touch, bitter grape skin (probably blueberry skin then), very sour, little fruity.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1326) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle from Olbutikken, shared with Hypo Luxa & a few other buddies to commemorate his leaving Japan. Best of luck in the US! Drunk from a Mikkeller tulip glass. A luscious grape red with a thick pink head. Sour blueberry, tart, musty & light fruit aroma. Incredibly tart, bitter sour with a blueberry skin flavor & Brian felt the blueberry stems caused the bitterness. It starts off sweet & tart then gets pithy, slightly bitter in the finish. This is a VERY smooth beer with a clean flavor progression. It is great but I feel it’d be better in a few years.

Hypo_Luxa (52) - Osaka, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle 2013. Bright pink, grape head. Peach, grape, cherries, a little funk, Mandarin orange juice in the can. Taste is very tart, no sweetness. Bitterness is from the stem. Needs more time to bring the tartness down. A good beer, would like to try earlier batches.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2014
750 ml bottle poured into a Cantillon glass thanks to Papso. 2012 batch. Pours a clear purple with a pink head of foam. The aroma has funky, dry, winey, bleu cheese, and berries. The taste is a little oxidized. Some cardboard and a bit of berry tartness. Light to medium body with medium to high carbonation.

Gedronken @borefts’13. Roze/paars kleurtje, niet helder en een witte schuimkraag. Ruikt fruitig, kersen, framboos. Smaakt muf, fruitig, kersen, framboos, zuur, jammer van het vieze nasmaakje.

fletchfighters (1010) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2014
2012 vintage 375 ML Pinkish purple color, no head at all. Maybe a little bit of a collar. Nose is vinegar, funk, and soft blueberries. Taste and feel are more about the vinegar, funk, blanket taste. Just slight amount of blueberries. Light bodied, high prickly carbonation. Grape sour tart really. nice but prefer other Cantillons are a bit more complex and easier to get. Great to try though
