Garrold (2499) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle. Friends of Ham, Leeds. Dark pink, with a light haze. Fine halo of pale pink head. Softly sour, black grape. Cherry stone woodiness. Not massively complex, but very juicy, and inviting. Taste is lightly acetic. Not far off bone dry, apart from a hint of sweetness on the lips. Very refreshing, easy drinking, and clean. Lovely balance of flavours. The barrel ageing comes through right at the end. Could drink this all day.

Bottle to glass at Chez Moeder. Pours a beautiful ruby red color with a slight pinkish head. Aroma and flavor are a wonderful mix of sour and sweet, excellent grape character. Very nice beer.

Saeglopur (961) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 17, 2015
750 ml, bottled 22 October 2014, from a trade with Orson0368. Thanks a lot Paul!
Wine red to purple, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, fizzy, pink head, that dissipates to a small, stable ring.
Fresh, complex aroma of barnyard, mild cheese, sour grapes, sweet berries, green apples, wine, barrel notes, subtle malt sweetness.
Taste is sour, dry, with wine barrel notes, barnyard, sour grapes, sour berries, earth, sweet and sour apples, some sugar.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with an average, fizzy carbonation.
Finishes complex again, sour, dry, wooden, somehow salty, but also a bit sweet, fruity and wine like.

Very tasty. The nose is the highlight for me, fresh and really complex, where you get more and more aromas the longer you put your nose in. The taste is more common, sour and dry, really well balanced and with nice wine barrel notes. One of the best Lambics I’ve had so far.
