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.

Bottle shared by Crosling, thanks Nick. Poured a pink-grape color with a moderate pink-tinted head that faded to a ring. Aroma of sweet grapes, light berry, tart funk, and some moderate yeastiness. Smooth, lightly tart entry with undertones of grape and tart berries leads into a more funky sourness with some dry yeast character on the finish. Pretty nice.

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.

pours purple with a huge quickly disapating purple head. Smells like wine. Flavour is very sour. I taste brett. It also has a very distinct wine flavour. Very unique I have never had anything like it. I am not site how I feel about it. Its like of is trying to be two drinks at once. Nice to drink I like that the fruit is not overly powerful. Well done.

Off notes 4/2007. Cork reads "bottled 2005".
Pours a slightly clouded ruby with a pinkish hue to it. Nose is the typical sour with slight wood attribute and a fairly firm antiseptic tone as well. I find the flavor a very smooth and traditional sour with the fruit influence. There are berries and a touch of wood on the flavor. It is extremely sour, but I still feel like it is well within acceptable limits as I am taking long swigs of this one. I can’t help it. Feel is nice and thick on the liquid and slightly carbonated. It’s nice and smooth going down.
Overall this is fairly sour, as these guys always are. But I think it is extremely smooth and doesn’t really carry any harsh characteristics at all. Quite easily this might be the easiest drinking lambic I have had to date. Well worth the price.
I had this on cask at Spuyten Duyvil 6/2007, and it was just as amazing.

Tasted various times over the years, including at the Stone Sour fest. Semi cloudy cherry red color. This is like a big tart-sour fruit soup with truly fascinating and fun tart cherry and raspberry profile. A little barnyard, wood, mixed other tart berries but very refreshing and tasty from first sip thru the finish. One of my favorites of this Stone sour fest and from Cantillon.

Pours a deep ruby color. Big barnyardy, horse blanket, funky sour aroma. Big funky flavor as well, barnyard gueuze character. Fruity flavor, grape and sour cherry like in the finish. Big sourness throughout but balances well with fruity character.

Bouteille de 750 ml, embouteillée en 2008. Arômes de brettanomyces, de fruits rouges légèrement tanniques. Notes de chêne humide. Très belle robe rosée et trouble, peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, la bière est très sûre, à la fois lactique et citrique, au point de piquer les lèvres. On retrouve des notes de brettanomyces bien développées ainsi que la présence de tanins de fruits mûrs. Légère présence du fût de chêne. Intense et très complexe.

On draft at Teresa’s Next Door. Poured slightly hazy ruby red that appeared undercarbonated. Nose was fruity and vinous. Agree with others that it had the appearance of a wine. Sweet, complex fruity flavor initially with a sour, acidic finish.
