Kita (1546) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle, 0.75l, courtesy of Bongtribe. Clear amber brown color without any head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is funky, cellar like with sour fruity notes. Tastes of tart gooseberry, cherry and vinous with excellent funky note. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Was funny to see people’s grimacing lambic faces when drinking this gem :)

Bière offerte par Tim au RBBSG 15. Thanks my friend! Bière dégustée avec Mademoiselle Irina. C’était son baptème de VRAI lambic. La bière est rosée, presque rouge. On croirait qu’elle est brassée avec de la fleur d’hibiscus. Ses énormes bulles éphémères dissipées, on croirait un jus de pamplemousse rose. Au nez, je sens du souffre et des baies. C’est chaud et autoritaire. En bouche, le bois domine par sa présence. Je sens un bois jeune et fringuant. C’est acide oui, mais surtout très funky et sec. Longue en bouche et fruitée, cette bière fut l’accompagnement parfait pour le retour de l’île du Prince Édouard!

gEUS (1543) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle on several occasions. Pours light cloudy light red with an amber hue. Aroma is funky forest fruits, the leading fruit is gooseberry. All is well supported by the cherries. Very subtle beer, compared to the oterh De Cam beers. A real threat.

markextrae (2364) - NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Sample from cask at ZBF ’15 before the hose gots frozen. New batch. Poured light coloured redish colour with a small non lasting light pink head. Tart blackberries, earth, raspberries, tart, dust, horseblanket, mellow sour fruit, acid, hint of sour vinegar, wooden oak, full creamy mouthfeel, very enjoyable fruit lambic. And maybe even better as the framboise version. Very complex

Kr1zz (276) - BELGIUM - APR 11, 2015
Bottle bought at Dranken Geers last year. Pours orange/red with a medium head that dissapears quickly. What a wonderful taste, sweet and medium sour. good balance, at the end you have the taste of the oak, fruit and a bit tartness and a dry finish.

Mortlach (1393) - Rome, ITALY - APR 5, 2015
750ml bottle @Mad For Beer (Rome), thanks ippopotamo36 for sharing! Unclear light amber color with a light foam that rapidly disappears. Aroma is hay, barnyard, leather, grapes, citric notes. Flavour is elegant and well balanced, just a little bit delicate, medium sourness and a touch of tartness in the end. Light body, light carbonation. Easy to drink.

JK (5129) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Sampled via bottle at WTWBA 2014. Yeast in the aroma. Flavor has light berry and sour yeast as well. Full flavored. Sour, but not as much as some Cantillon I have had. An excellent beer.

Sampled via bottle at WTWBA 2014 in Minneapolis. Tried this on the advice of JK - great call! Golden pour. Funky barnyard, leather, some tart citrus. One of the highlights of the day for me.

Very hazy pink and ruby pour with almost no head. Tart berries but not overly sour. Flavor is rich with different berries, and cherry tones.
