4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thanks to Bacterial...what a treat Jeff! Of the three or four bottles of this I have tried, this one was BY FAR my favorite. 2011 Vintage. Pour is a clear light red/dark pink, with a nice head that fades rather quickly but leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is not quite so heavy on the barnyard as other samples I have had (read: Not as much "Authentic Fecal Aroma"), and the subtle nature of the funk really worked for me. Some nice damp basement dustyness, light fruit, light acid, and some tannin to finish. Dry mouthfeel. Really, really nice beer, I wish all the samples of this that I have had were so great!

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle from Edmunds Oast. Amber red pour with some pinkish highlights and a bubbly white head. Big aroma of layered deep yeast funk, sourdough, pizza shop, hay, lemons zest, plums, dark fruits, oak and wine. Complex flavor of oak wood, dark fruits, yeast funk, pizza shop, sourdough, lemon zest and citrus. Medium bodied and wonderful carbonation. So fucking delicious.

Shared pint in Homosibaris bar. Dark red color beer with a strong aroma of wine and fruits. This was my first Lambic beer and was an amazing experience. For sure I will drink it again combined with some cheese or ham.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh red colour, foam is white which lasts quite long.
Smell is fresh sour, kinda barnyard smell. Also a little sweetness to it.
Mouthfeel is nice, tart. Medium body. Carbonation is little.
Very nice fruit lambic. A good combination between the lambic and the grapes. Taste is sour as well as a little sweet. Aftertaste is like a red whine.
This is a beer you should have had.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
"from wish list. Sweet funky cheesy aroma of berry-ish fruit. Body is fizzy at first but turns a little flat. Flavor is nice. Very complex...less cheese, more lemony tart in the mouth. Nice sweet-tart finish. Not among their best, but quite enjoyable."

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Dan at the Pig. Small snifters. Pours an amazing dark red with an ample lasting head. Some small lacing. The aroma is funky yeasts, oak barrels, red wine, fermented grapes, and apricots. The taste was so good with the red grapes, tart funky yeasts, oak barrel, and tannins. Perky, sprite, and funky finish. Light body, crisp. Somewhat dry. Very good.

Bottle at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, july 24th 2014. Clear dark red body with a white pink tinted head. Nice. Aroma of red grapes, wood, barnyard, resembling red wine a bit. Taste is quite sour, cherries, grapes, again a bit wineish, long tart sour berry finish. Lovely!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Limpido color vinaccia con fragile velo di schiuma rosata. Aroma acetico ma non pungente con sentori di uva, lievito e cantina. Gusto acidulo, vinoso e rotondo con spiccate note di uva e un finale asciutto dove compaiono luppolo e legno da botte. Corpo medio-lieve, effervescenza vivace, struttura vellutata: ottimo lambic!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Taylors birthday tasting! Ruby ted pink pour not much head. Aroma of cheese funk and light raspberry red fruit. Tastes same with sour dry blue cheese and funk. Red fruit jam over cheese funk. Good stuff, a bit simplistic but very cohesive. A fine beer for sharing with friends.
