4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
1998 Bottle. Brown-orange in colour. Aroma was floral, yeasty, barnyard, grassy with some sourness. The flavour was floral, tart, sour, quite funky, dry and was malty near the end. Finishes with a very sour tartness. Very unusual but equally as enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber-orange. Nose sour and some citric fruit, horseblanket floats up. Similar flavor a bit of musty character, but quite sour, a bit dry and earthy. Generally enjoyable, but didnít feel good in my ass crack. Ass crack, you ask? When I opened it, it literally exploded upwards, covering my face, and seeping onto the floor. As I was sitting down, it soaked my shorts and, therefore, ass crack. Significantly more enjoyable drinking than sitting in.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Golen amber w/ very little white head; lightly hazy. Lactic sour aroma as well as the typical horseblanket "brett" aroma. Leathery & musty w/ bready malt. Sour but well balanced malt flavor; lactic sourness. Fruity & dry finish, lingering sourness, & earthy flavor. Lightly bitter as well as it warms, not overly sour in the finish. Lighter body, highly carbonated, dry light puckering m/f. Not as complex as I thought for a lambic. Good, but slightly disappointing even for a lambic.

Rich orange appearance, enormous head on her, a flush, full bristling bundle, gracefully descending in size.
Aroma, sourness, yet balanced, overall citric, very ...damn, ...hard to pigeonhole, for certain, a great match, very lemon and orange-dominated. loads of lambic funk, the bass line beckons Bootsy...
Down the mouth, oooh! sour! letís put the pen down ítil i spend more time with her, ...yup, sour, but tasty, too!
Huge flavor, big presence on the palate, long, lingering finish,
ooo!ooo, ooo, oooo!!!
wince, shudder, ...smile!
Only 1/3 of the 750ml is gone? got more to enjoy, hurrah!
A delight for lamibic-geeks only and an occasional treat for weird beer-freaks like yours truly...such an unusual ale, a rare treat, another horse-blanket treasure from the barnyard geniuses!

Copper colour with a big dense white head. Sour and tart woody aroma with a pleast note of flowers. Very sour and tart flavour, notes of stable, citrus and wood. Sour dusty finish. Kind of liked it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled in 2000 Clear orange with very lively carbonation that produces a huge dense light tan head. The aroma of barnyard, and horse blanket are obvious the minute the cork pops. Upon deeper olfactory contemplation the aromas of some grassy hops and lots of acidty are evident. The flavor is moderately acidic with some definite hoppiness. The hops are defintely out of character in a beer like this, but I dig them, for the most part. The palate is a bit much thogh. the acidity combined with the bitter hops combine to make it a bit too astringent. Other than that this is a an interesting beer.

Rounder body, and a wee bit more bitter than the others. Complex as always but with a sublime difference. Didnít be one of my favourites, but after this 2000 vintage draft I might reconsider.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Murky amber color with a slighly oily head. Barnyard mud with touches of mint and raw yogurt. Not as tart as others from this brewery with a fairly standard lambic zing and dryness. Hops are really disjionted, medicinal, and overpowering. Very disapointed.

The best part of this was the aroma - another complex combination of barnyard, sour, yeast, citrus fruits, etc. The flavor was a strange combination of the sour/tart lambic followed by a bitter edged hop and then oak. I really didnít care for the combination of the sour and the bitter.
