Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2005
Expensive. Powerful sourness from tannins of the skins, with bursting aroma of oak and berries. Beautiful. The Palate cleaner. Not for the novice, but certainly a hit. Astringent yet balanced. I saved this for the boys, Radekfest 05 sample 26. An experience to be had once.

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2005
Cherry red body with a medium size but hardly lasting pink head. Berries in the aroma and slightly musty. Taste was pleasantly sour, tart and easily drinkable. A touch of oak with the wine notes comng very late Next time I will serve in a flute glass as that would enhance the experience.

jonas (5637) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2005
Neon red. Straw, fruit and cheese aroma, grape notes not really that noticeable Dry and well balanced, dry aftertaste.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Burgundy. No head. Aroma of lemon, cider, brett, socks, cheese, wood, lightly vinous. Slightly less sourly acidic (only slightly!) than most Cantillons, and with an extra layer of woody complexity. Superb dry finish. Gorgeous.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2007 Sampled at Logan’s RateBeer tasting. Thanks to me for bringing this. Alluring clear cherry-amber hue with a sudsy, effervescent off-white head. Aroma of barnyard, sweat, cranberries, and sharp acidity. Flavor follows the cranberry theme, basically tasting like sour grapes, with substantial oak character. Super dry with palate-scouring sharp acidity. This is an amply sour, yet somewhat soft and interesting lambic. Later sampled on draught at Capone’s in Norristown, which was also a pleasant experience.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2005
It had one of those aromas you have to think about carefully: hard to put into words. At first I thought there was a definite fruity sweetness, but then I wasn’t so sure, as a sour cidery note prevailed. Colour was a cloudy dark red, nearly purple. Short-lasting rosy head. Taste was sharply sour and fruity with a long bitterness at the finish. Unusual, thought-provoking, enjoyable.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2005
(Bottled 2004, 0.375l) Deep ruby red color with a smallish, fading head. Tart and fruity aroma and flavor with wood and cherry hints. Medium-bodied, white-wineous, balancedly tart palate with quite low carbonation. A very enjoyable and refreshing, tart and balanced brew.

madsberg (10184) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2005
Bottled: Reddish coloured. Hazy. Light reddish head. Wood, sourness, light barnyard and loads of berries in the nose. Flavour is quite sour with a light sweet touch to balance. Quite acidic and dry. Raspberries notable. Ends on a very dry fruity sournote. Quite drinkable and interesting.

pilsnerrogge (2497) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2005
Red currant red. Pink, lively head. Lambic-ish barnyard aroma with a touch of brie cheese. The flavour brings grape skin and red currants. Tasty.
