3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottom of the bottle. Very cloudy dirty yellow. Fruity, lightly funky aroma. Tart, citrus fruit, lemon, a bit of grain and funk toward the end. It’s alright.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, peachy yellow colour. It’s sharp and tangy but not overly so. Plenty of fruity grape sweetness balances it well.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Orangy color with close to no foam. The smell is amazing. Sour anticipation runs down your throat when you smell it. Apple and stuff in the nose too. The sourness in the taste is enormous paired with a fine carbonation (wait a halftime or two, to let it decay to a certain degree). Grapes apple and fruitiness in general with a dry sour finish. The aftertaste is a bit doughy. There is almost sweetness underneath the sour taste. Great beer indeed.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful blend of sour and fruity. Not for the uninitiated, though. A bit too foamy at first, but settles down.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange color with a relatively big white head. Aroma of grapes and rhubarb. Quite a sweet bite there. Great funk. Taste is funky, sour and dry. With a distinct fruity grape character. Quite the carbonation there as well. Great!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 750 ml bottle @ Tuulensuu
Yellow to orange beer, with little white head. Almost clear without yeast, hazy and finally totally opaque murky with sediment. Aroma has peach, citrus, grainy malts, barnyard and nuts. Flavor is fruity, walnutty, barnyardy and grapey. Palate is quite thin with strong carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness and strong Cantillon sourness which is a bit tamed by the grapes. Aftertaste is has citrus and grapes. A juicy, crisp and refreshing lambic, not too sour.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Backlogging, notes from memory. 37,5cl vintage bottle from 1999. Got this vintage beauty poured from a lambic basket into a gueuze glass (paired with cheese, asorted sausages, pickled vegetables). Orange golden colour. The aroma I hot from this one was mindblowing, the brett had really evolved wonderfully. Big barnyard aroma, funky cheese, vinegar, cat pee, old cellar, grape peel. Really complex. Flavour was a lot of brett, vinous notes, grape peel, apple vinegar. It was very complex and the finish leaves your mouth dry and wanting more. It is not as vinous and fruity as it is fresh, like usual with old fruit lambics. Drinks great fresh but outstanding with a bit of age.
