Bottle shared by sliffy i think. Poured with some reddish and pinkish hues and a little white head. Aroma was of a little barnyard and some dirty clothes with a little grapes to it. Flavor was a little tart but not too sour. A little lactic with a descent palate.

Tried at the 12 Hour Belgian Beer Party in Carlsbad, CA. Possibly the best beer tasting ever, with 70 bottled and 20 draft beers.

This is one of those beers that I’ve had a bunch of times have always loved it, but, for some reason never rated it. Finally I remembered to actually do it this time. It pours with a cloudy rose body topped by a light head with some lacing left behind. It’s tart and sour as expected with nice fruity notes and that great Cantillon funk. Light bodied, crisp and dry.

Orange pinking poor with no effervescence. Aromas of humidity, raspberries, a hint of cherries, green apples and rhubarb. Flavors are of raspberries, very sour and acidic. Dry mouthfeel with added rhubarb. Extreme sourness. Intense full bodied palate with exceptional purity.

Bottle 2006 Poured a deep pinkish red body with very thin head. Aroma is of sour beeries, horseblanket, and an odd resembleness to cranberries. Flavor is slight sour, lightly fruity with the raspberries having a small presence, but overall having a light body and ton( I got the sence of a watery drink sometimes). I have to admit though the more I drank it the more it really grew on me. Very nice aftertaste. Would like to try again after many years of cellaring.

Tasted at Cantillon, Brussels. A very sour aroma with barnyard and sour characteristics, as well as light fruit. Sour raspberry flavor. Clearly natural raspberry. A red beer and heavily carbonated. Yeasty aftertaste. Outstanding.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a reddish gold, definitely settles as a rose. Virtually no head. Aroma of hay, alcohol, hints of fruitiness. Relatively complex taste - once you get past the first sour blast. Raspberries, lemons, green grapes and wood. This is the way a lanbic should taste... not Lindemans

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled @ Kulminator (Vintage 1979). Amber coloured. Unclear. Fluffy off white head. Label is totally unreadable, only small bits of paper are left. Aroma of raspberries, earth, light sweetness and a massive acidic sourness. Impressive. Flavour as well is very good. Again loads of earth and barnyard. Massive sourness which is hardly countered by any sweetness. Rasperries are notable. Full flavoured. Very dry and acidic. Ends on a light sour raspberry note. Awesome how well this beer has aged. Might be a bit weak on the fruits, but nothing to really bother about. Try it if you hit Kulminator. Its only 25€, which I find to be a bargain.
Earlier Rating: 6/5/2004 Total Score: 3.9
Bottled @ the brewery: Is Rosé coloured. Dense and small off white head. Has a nice sourness blended with a vague fruitsweetness. Very sour flavour. Has a light touch of rasberry. Ends dry and fruity with a acidic tone. Nice one.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2011 2005 bottle. Pour is a hazy orangish red with little to no head. Aroma of barnyard funk, tartness, lemon, and a little bit of raspberries. Flavor is very tart and sour. Mostly lambic funk flavor with notes of fruit.
Rerate, I have had this many more times in bottle and once draft at the brewery. Tastes change, love the sours.
