4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange body; next to no head. It does smell like a lambic; also the Haand house wood. Very interesting. Sort of like an unblended. Doesn’t taste like any lambic I’ve ever had, except maybe Bruocsella Grand Cru because it is so flat. Lots of house character again, a little bit of rubber and maybe smoke. Real nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Thin head on dirty dark copper-amber. First sniff is a HUGE punch of sour cherry wood and cheese. Flavor kind of flat. Cherries are silent and cheese is left to carry the load. As you drink the woody cherry note competes with the cheese but overall lacking in sharpness and briteness. The best part is a decent sourness that sinks in between the teeth.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[bottle] shared by skyview. Pours a nice garnet with a small, soapy eggshell head. Aroma is odd. Smoky, woody, sweaty sock, light lactic and acetic character. Flavor is pretty similar to the aroma. Smoky, bacon, lightly lactic, just odd.

Thanks to skyview for sharing. Thin white head on an orange tinted read body. Very tart aroma, some fruit in there as well. A little acetone character. Holy crap everyone is right, there’s bacon in here. More fruitiness in there and a nice sour flavor.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a rosy red cranberry color with a white collared head. Huge bandaid aroma in the nose along with lemon and cranberry. Sour and tart cran taste upfront with medicinal notes. Not entirely unenjoyable but for sure not the bet sour I have had. Non complex. Lingering funkiness and slight bitter.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours a cranberry like appearance with an off white head that dissipates to a short stream of bubbles and quickly thereafter appears almost still. Aromatically sour and fruity. Nice leather and acetic acid notes. Some what reminiscent of sour bruin but with less acidity. Cranberry and raspberry like tones and a faint musk y acrid and maybe acidic tone. Berries, vinegar, and sour notes. Must admit upon first sip finishes a bit like plastic. Body feels very thin and the etoh is actually quite note-able and the acidity seems to pick up quickly as well. Hints of lactic acid, leather like aromatics are absent in the flavor. This lack of complexity in the flavor is really bothering me. Honesty i found this pretty disappointing.
