Pours a hazy ruby tinged tea color with an off white head and decent lacing. Aroma is tart with some barnyard and wine grapes. Some mild sweetness at the beginning that is overtaken by a moderate vinegar sourness. Some grape and raspberry flavor along with some wood and a mild funk. Mouthfeel is crisp with a light/medium body and high carbonation. Very good.

750ml bottle split with mcberko. Pours murky red with a small head. Aroma of sour fruits, red wine and oak. Flavour of soured fruits, red wine, oak, funk. Full bodied, and complex. Really nice.

Cloudy darkish pink color on the pour with minimal white fizzy head. Nose of vinegar slightly with fruits big on grape. Flavor is quite sour with a great grape flavor coming through past that sourness. I realy enjoyed this brew it just didnt rate that high on some of the levels, but overall that 17 should give an idea where it rates on my list.

75 cl bottled Oct. 12, 2011. Bright pink/red with a pink-white head. Nose is berries (mostly strawberry), leather furniture, some vinegar, vinous. Tart fruits, oak, wine, star fruit, bitter grapefruit. Tickling tartness. Not incredibly tart but left my mouth pretty numb 2/3 through. Soft spritzy body. Probably the driest finish of any beer I’ve ever had. Leaves the pleasant chalky dryness you get in your mouth after eating a banana or two. Just an incredible palate.

Bottle. Pours a ruby red with white head. Aroma is tart, a bit funky. Very tart, a bit grape. Taste is light, tart, smooth, not sour, just tart. The more I sip the more I like. Very drinkable. Very grape/wine action going on. Tasty as hell.

Definitely let this one warm up before trying it. The aroma while fairly cool gave me a distinct canned tuna and green olive vibe. It mellowed to a softer yet still sour aroma with distinct cedar and oak notes. Rusty tin and cherry flavor, dry and mossy finish.

Good just good lambic. Bubbly newer lambic, but the oak aged character is welcome. A nice woody quality and tart.

Burgundy pour, some white fizzy head, looks almost still once it’s gone. Raunchy aroma, lots of funk, a bit of grape. Taste is lemon funk, sour grapes,lots of sour on the finish.
