2012 bottle for my birthday no sharing lol. Aroma is lemon sour with sweet grape notes. Smells like candy. Appears beautiful strawberry jam colored. Pinkish white head. Light head spotty lacing sturdy ring towards the edges of the glass. Taste of sourness, citric acidity, and slightly bitter berry.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Ruby and indigo all over with decent clarity and a pink tinted head that makes no attempt to be quiet as it fizzes away into nothing. Aroma is funk-heavy up front; musty cork, sweaty blankets, dirt, earth, must, & damp barnyard backed by wonderful vinous notes of wet oak barrels, sour grapes, wine-like acidity, tannins, & vinegar. Taste is loaded with tart, sour grapes, bitter acidity, faint cherry skins, heaps of oak, & the funk of one thousand barnyard floors. Horsey and cork-y with a note of sweaty socks. Truly great beer, this brewery is simply outstanding.

75cl bottle bought at Cantillon brewery. Color is dark red with medium head. Body is medium. Taste is medium to high bitter and sour. Aroma is red fruits, grapes and wines. It’s a good beer, slightly the same the level as kriek and rosé.

villevav (190) - FINLAND - OCT 14, 2013
Tämä vuonna 1995 pullotettu yksilö oli ehtinyt jo täysi-ikäiseksi ja maku oli sen mukainen: kypsän hedelmäinen, jopa omenainen ja hieman suolainen tuoksu sekä täyteläinen ja kypsän hedelmäinen maku olivat oivallisessa tasapainossa. Vielä happamampi kuin saman panimon muut lambicit.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 Zwanze Day 2013 at Avenue Pub! Pours a hazy reddish purple with thin ring of lacy pink head and good carbonation, but no lacing. Aroma is awesome tart fruits, musty grape and sour cherries. Taste follows, tart awesomeness with a hint of funk, nice and thick but still refreshing. Awesome!
