0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle@sbwf14. Reddish hazy. Oh gosh. I might just have gotten vinegar, this is so acidic. The bottle’s apparently ok, as all othr bottles of this batch were the same. So the batch is to blame. Vinegar, very faint red berries. Acidity. Vinegar. Throat burning.

Bottled@sbwf14. Red color, thin white head. Strong vinegary aroma. Who ah. Too much. Burning cherry, vinegary flavor. Somethings wrong here.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle (label says 37,5 cl). Bottled 01/2009.
Pours beautiful red color with no head, no carbonation at all either. Very tart and sour aroma of raspberries, rowan berries and gooseberries, yeast, wooden notes. Very dry and tart palate, sour raspberries, weird salty notes even, leathery and earthy. The salt here is quite weird, very sour aftertaste too, leaves a tart oily coat in your mouth. I wouldn’t get through this bottle alone, not the most quaffable of beers. Interesting anyway.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle, 2009 vintage
Pours dark reddish with no head. Aroma of aggressively tart raspberries, heavy sourness and earthy notes. Taste is quite extreme with mouth drying sourness, juicy tart raspberries and earthiness. Finish is very dry, sour and slightly juicy with raspberries, salty leather and funky yeastiness. Quite a slow sipper, but still pretty tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle @ home, bottled 01/2009, BBE 01/2019
Label says 37,5cl, wtf?
Totally flat – no CO2 at all in this bottle. Aroma has sour and tart raspberry juice. Also some earthy notes and faint traces of metal. Very tart flavour with salt(!), tart raspberries, milky tones, lactic acid and gastric acid. Also some grapefruit. Very aggressive and unusual, the milky tones disturb a bit. The tartness and acidness makes this even difficult to swallow. Burning sourness indeed.
Adding the yeast (there’s a lot of it) rounds this much. It is perhaps not a bad thing.

Another outstanding fruit lambic. Very tart lemon and raspberrys aroma. Flavor right up there with some oak that added dimension. Finished dry and tart, super tang to finish this A+ brew out.
