markextrae (2041) - 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 (254) - 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 (1253) - 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 (4920) - 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.

BVery (7891) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2014
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.

Nische (1158) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2014
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.

Staffan47 (890) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2014
Blindprovad. Den här skulle jag nog ha svårt att skilja från en 3F Golden blend. Bra betyg naturligtvis. Spannmål och funk så det står härliga till. Viss kämpig beska som hänger i.

Nocturne (1134) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
750ml bottle. After a painful uncorking it pours out a reddish amber. Little to no head. Smells really leathery at first. Blackberry stands out quite prominently. Kind of medicinal influence to the aroma. Big cherry taste at first with prickly berry fruit providing a great follow-up. Hint of sticking plaster. Great sourness. Really nice combination at work here.
