3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy yellow beer with a nice and rich head but fades away like in most lambics. Aroma of citrus, flowers and some cellar comes out. A bitter taste and the fresh hops gives it a nice touch. Has a dry finish and leaves an oak touch on the palate. A pleasant lambic, that could benefit from some time in the cellar.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a orangish color with a white head. Aroma wasnít really pleasent. I usualy enjoy the aromas of unblended lambics but not this one. Lots of sourness, oak, citrus, and yeast. Flavor starts out not as good but the more you drink the better it gets. Everything on the aroma is present in the flavor with some grass flavors and a nice tart finish, but not too tart. Overall, minus the aroma, this is a very delicious brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2004 bottle. Light golden-orange color with a white fading head. Aroma has some nice sourness, wood, and sharp citrus. Flavor is a nice sour/acidic citrus with just a hint of wood, some vinous/wine flavors, and a nice sour feel. A nice Lambic that is smooth, tart and enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small offwhite head. Hazy, amber body. Soft metallic hoppy aroma with the typical grainy, wooden metallic lambik aroma in the background. Sour, bitter metallic grainy lambik taste with strong grassy metal hop notes. Bitter, sharp metal aftertaste with intense lingering grassy hop taste. The hops round out the usual intense one-dimensional lambik character a bit. Nice. (0.375l bottle from gr0ve.)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. BIG pillowy white head....can hardly see the brew beneath. Color is a hazy amber orange hue. Donít care too much for the aroma....the sourness really grabs you....yeasty and citric all the way. Flavor is fairly tart and fruity...the sourness is what this brew is about. Dry in the end with a citrus edge that was evident during the entire glass. Not my style, but interesting anyway.

Bottle at River St. Ale House which I split with some buds. Pleasantly sour with all the palatte cleansing tongue sucking Iíd ever desire with some horse leathery citrus flavors and wood in there. The sourness is here but its not overdone, just right.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled - Swan & Rushes - Leicester. A mildly hazy bronze coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma is dry, sharp and harshly acidic. The taste is puckeringly sour. dry as a bone, and tongue wrenchedly acidic. Sounds dreadful reading this back, but ooh itís good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2010 Bottle, 75cl corked. Unclear, orange pour, with a small off-white head. Rubber and citrus, especially grapefruit, in the aroma. The flavor is citrusy as well, mostly grapefruit here too, with cellar to follow. Nice, astringent mouthfeel. A really tooth-cleansing beer, quite nice, but thereís a rubbery touch to it that I donít like. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. 070526
Bottle, 75cl at Esbjerg Beerfestival. Itís a hazy, golden beer with hints of head. Citrusy, horsey and barnyardish nose. Citrus, barnyard, horseblanket, sourness and a faint bitterness in the mouth, bonedry and puckering. A quite lovely and quenching beer. 091023
