Pundarquartis (19) - Odense, - SEP 11, 2011
Bottle from 2005 Doft: Funky... oh yes, sur likaså... omedelbart gör den till känna att den inte är en liten parvel som sin yngre kusin. I denna finns det mer kraft, helt klart. Ek, torkad frukt och mjölksyra blandar sig i doften tillsammans med funken. Den luktar verkligen helt fantastiskt. Smak och munkänsla: Oj, här blev jag förvånad. Jag förberedde mig på en käftsmäll i form av syra, men istället möttes jag av en väldigt välbalanserad smak där den extrema syran balanserades upp nästan helt och hållet av en intensiv, söt smak av kanderad frukt och russin. Rent spontant (höhö... no pun intended) känns den mer som en flamländsk röd än en druvlambic! När man dessutom smakade ölen tillsammans med ett hallon så framhävdes sötman helt galet mycket och lät smaken av torkad och kanderad frukt bara lysa igenom. Asgott! Utseende: Inte bara smakade den likt en flamländs röd utan såg också ut som en. Mörkröd, nästintill brun, färg med ett cremevitt skum. Såg relativt ful ut i jämförelse med glaset blåbær men ack så inbjudande.

Garrold (2264) - 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 (746) - 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.

Pours a transparent burgundy red with a pink head which soon recedes to a formation of bubbles. Aroma is very rustic - barnyard, basement aromas, earthy, horse blanket and grape skin. Taste is barnyard, funk, light sourness of lemons and tartness of green apples, slight red grape. Long and sour finish. Full body with light-medium carbonation.
