Rating 1000 at my fathers birthday. Hazy dark red with small light pink head. Funky, dead leaves, yoghurt, elderberrries and grapes, young red wine, oak tannins, berry pits. Medium tart, a hint of sweetness and light to medium bitter finish. Medium bodied with nice fresh feeling carbonation. Very nice.

Bottle, ’13, split a few ways. Rating #900. Slightly hazy dark red pour with a small head. Nose has some funk, lots of berries, grapes, leather and light balsamico. Taste is smooth, moldy, grapes, blueberries, dusty, funk and some leathery notes. Delicious stuff!

jeremyh70 (890) - Missouri, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pours a hazy ruby tinged tea color with an off white head and decent lacing. Aroma is tart with some barnyard and wine grapes. Some mild sweetness at the beginning that is overtaken by a moderate vinegar sourness. Some grape and raspberry flavor along with some wood and a mild funk. Mouthfeel is crisp with a light/medium body and high carbonation. Very good.

Color of cranberry juice no head. Smells of tart grape, sour, perm, candy. Taste is sour bubbly rush, grape, cranberry, red wine, that finishes dry with a vanilla caramel taste with a little woodiness. Refreshing with a good sour that finishes with some sweetness and barrel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dodskenta (100) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2015
Backlogging, notes from memory. Bottle shared at Mikkeller Bar. Purple burgondy pour with a small film of head. The nose was very in-your-face sour, about as vinous as they get, berries and oak. Taste was great, red grapes, funky and mouth-puckeringly sour. Lingering vinous and oaky taste.

Bomber to a snifter for my Bday. Clear deep ruby red with frothy pink head and minimal lacing. Merlot grape, Brett funk and oakiness. Plenty of fruit up front, then dank with a tart sour finish. Best lambic I have had to date.
