Bottle sampled at churchkey march 2014 2013 vintage pours dark red hue with a small pink head and no lacing. S pritzy head and some moderate carbonation. Nose is sharp lots of barrel sharp cheddar wood very nice!!! Flavors exhibit the sharp red wine character with tons of tart notes. Damn this is sharp. Damn! Long woody and berries on the finish. Wish I had a whole bottle of this! Very complex and unique!

haukur (1269) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAR 16, 2014
dark pink into red. Vinegary aroma with loads of funk and sour grapes. A bit vineous although I think that the type of grape does not matter. Refreshing and good.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear pink beer with a small sparkling pinkish had on top that leaves really quick. Aroma is fruity, vineous, oak and funky Brett. Flavor is medium sour, fruity and has a big oak presence with vineous characters. Soft, light carbonated mouthfeel. Quite a nice lambic, lacks some complexity. Nice.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Sample shared by a friend. Slightly hazy reddish-plum color with a medium fizzy pinkish-white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of vinous oak, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of tart berries, peppery yeast, wood and grapes. The finish is moderately sour with a wine and yeast aftertaste. Good all around.

aleigator (181) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Soon vanishing small head, ember red, slightly brown color. Aroma of grapes, malt, refreshing sourness, wine and old cheese. Tastes of grapes, mashed up with malts, with an underlying slight sweetness. Then tartness gets stronger and sour notes become more recognizable. Still, grapes remain on the palate, adding a decent body to the sourness. Slick, smooth finish with a long sour aftertaste. Grapes are in perfect balance with the usual lambic sourness all the time.

Incredible red color. Equal smell. Could just smell it for long times. Sour taste. Long long finish. Incredible lambic sour.
