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!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample shared by a friend. Slightly hazy reddish-plum color with a medium fizzy pinkish-white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of vinous oak, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of tart berries, peppery yeast, wood and grapes. The finish is moderately sour with a wine and yeast aftertaste. Good all around.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Soon vanishing small head, ember red, slightly brown color.
Aroma of grapes, malt, refreshing sourness, wine and old cheese.
Tastes of grapes, mashed up with malts, with an underlying slight sweetness. Then tartness gets stronger and sour notes become more recognizable. Still, grapes remain on the palate, adding a decent body to the sourness. Slick, smooth finish with a long sour aftertaste. Grapes are in perfect balance with the usual lambic sourness all the time.
