Bottled. Poured ruby red in colour with a small head. Berries, earth and some sour notes in taste. Lemon also with some woody notes in aftertaste. Dry finish. One of the best fruit lambics I’ve had so far.

Hoprider (82) - DENMARK - APR 19, 2014
Pours clear dark red with a minimal head. The nose is complex with clear wine similarities. Red grape and barrel comes through nicely along with funk and sweeter berries. The mouthfeel is light of course with prickly carbonation. The taste is sour initially with tart winey flavours. Sippable ans sappy with good amounts of brett to hit the spot. Nice crispy and sour aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours a ruby red with white head. Aroma is tart, a bit funky. Very tart, a bit grape. Taste is light, tart, smooth, not sour, just tart. The more I sip the more I like. Very drinkable. Very grape/wine action going on. Tasty as hell.

Geiserich (3104) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle: Really old one, approx. 10 or more years. Hazy, reddish, light pink color, very fizzy, no head. Notes of red wine, vinegar, cider. Flavor is also very sour with intensive notes of vinegar, citrus and citrus peel, red wine, barrels. For sure a good beer but too sour for me.

Bottle sampled at churchkey march 2014 2013 vintage pours dark red hue with a small pink head and no lacing. S pritzy head and some moderate carbonation. Nose is sharp lots of barrel sharp cheddar wood very nice!!! Flavors exhibit the sharp red wine character with tons of tart notes. Damn this is sharp. Damn! Long woody and berries on the finish. Wish I had a whole bottle of this! Very complex and unique!

haukur (1203) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAR 16, 2014
dark pink into red. Vinegary aroma with loads of funk and sour grapes. A bit vineous although I think that the type of grape does not matter. Refreshing and good.

MrHangover (2141) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear pink beer with a small sparkling pinkish had on top that leaves really quick. Aroma is fruity, vineous, oak and funky Brett. Flavor is medium sour, fruity and has a big oak presence with vineous characters. Soft, light carbonated mouthfeel. Quite a nice lambic, lacks some complexity. Nice.
