CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle shared by Travlr: pours a clear bright pink with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a tart light fruity nose with a touch of pale malty sweetness and funk. Starts with good fullness and effervescence with puckering tartness and horseblanket funk with some vinous fruitiness before a crisp, drier finish. Well-balanced and complex.

Bottle thanks to Kai! Pours a still dark amber. Aroma is funky, lactic, vinegary, gooseberries, some subtle berry notes, tannic, cherry pits. Taste is sour as fuck, lots of acidity, berries, cherries, gooseberry tartness, citrussy, green apples, barnyard.

ippopotamo36 (1307) - Rome, ITALY - APR 17, 2016
This was definitely an oude version. 0,75 bottle at Mad for Beer pub in Rome - Italy, together with mortlach. Pours clear amber orange color, some bubbling phenomena on the surface. Nose: curry powder, green apples, stable. Mouth: mild tartness, very balanced sourness, white vinegar, fruity in a way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JBPortland (1439) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 7, 2016
750ml bottle pours cloudy pale red with small head. Lots of nice tart fruit, funk, musty berry, basement, earthy, vinous, juicy, acidic, damp oak, semi sweet, good complexity. Haven’t met a De Cam fruit beer I haven’t liked yet.

sjogro (1920) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2016
At Maakun’s surprise birthday party. Clear rusty copper. Very minerallike, big funky, fruity flavors, apricots, hay, distant woodglue, woody, spices, fresh coriander and hint of cinnamon. Strong sour and medium salty minerallike taste. Spiciness in the finish, very nice.

Maakun (2715) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Clear orange/golden/light brown with no head just a few bubbles. Lots of funk and barnyard notes, sour gooseberries, peach, red berries, light rubber touch, lemon. Over medium sour and a hint of sweetness. Medium bodied with no carbonation. More funky than fruity.

Lukaduke (2908) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 6, 2016
Pours a slightly rusty golden color with a touch of fizzy foam. Lots of sour fruit on the nose with heavy tart qualities and a hint of sweetness along with lots of damp basement. Great acid on the front that opens up with a juicier midpalate... lingering blackberry but the gooseberry punch is the highlight for me and lures you into this funky complex brew. Puckering but on the front of the tongue not down the esophagus. Cobwebs, dust, wet wood.

King_Alex_II (1031) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Light cloudy orange color with foam ring. Fruity sourish nose. Funky, fruit flash of different fruits. The finish is creamy sweet sour vinegarish. The aftertaste has a creamy sour-sweet balsamico touch.

anstei (901) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2016 Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Soft fruit flavours over lambic taste, woven in very well throughout. Tart and slightly funky, gets quite sour towards the finish. Complex and nice, but a bit too much vinegar on the palate. Nice, but not overwhelming.

sneakychi (71) - SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2016
Light red/pink liquid, small "fizzy" head that settles quick. First thing I got was gooseberries in the aroma and that was when pouring into the glas. When actually smelling the beer I get sweet berries, quite strong ’sourness’ feeling, strange banan like a baby puree, glue (?), leather and oak. Taste of berries, with a sourness that starts of rather mild and grows, some yoghurt feel. Mildly carbonated.
