bottle pours a very cloudy dark red auburn color with some small off white bubbles on top. Helped get this $16 bottle with a $20 credit I had on my account at my liquor store. Aroma is quite tart, with distinct notes of oak, almost bark-like, fruit-rind, slightly bitter. Medium bodied with very little carbonation, only a slight fizz at the start of the palate. Finish is sour but not puckering. Flavor is tart black current, which gets progressively more tart, with oak rounding out the finish. Overall it’s good but glad i got this for free with my credit, wouldn’t pay $16 for it, notwithstanding if you are very into cassis or lambics in general it’s certainly one to have.

375 ml. fles bij DHL zonder etiket – 2011 Vintage normaal gezien. Fles ziet eruit alsof het van binnen verbrand langs een kant is – best wel eigenaardige sediment (?) hoor. Bij ook om deze van eindelijk te geproefd te hebben van mijn derde meers geliefde lambic brouwerij en/of stekerij – stekerij in dit geval. Robijn, roze met een witte kraag. Ruikt zoet, muffig, duidelijk dikke sap van vermengd met geplette donkere bessen maar precieze soort is moeilijk te bepalen, ruikt stuk zuurder dan hij smaakt, woudland, veel bessen. Smaak is muffig, aarde, moderate azijn voor deze brouwerij gemengd met geplette, dikke sap, bijna grenadine (niet een slechte zin) donkere bessen toetsen, best wel veel kruiden, het kruidenthee, hoessiroop element van het basis lambic blend komt hier een beetje naar boven, spinnenweb, kruiden,… zuur maar moderaat zuur vergeleken met hun aardbeien of frambozen lambiek. Maar ook minder dan die twee. Koolzuurgehalte heeft iets lichtjes weg van bruisend water maar zeker niet zo veel, beetje kleverig, eerder naar platter neigend maar het mondgevoel doet er ergens toch wel aan denken, mineraal, niet slecht, andere tot nu toe dragen wel mijn voorkeur.

375ml bottle that I paid the outrageous sum of $16 for the pleasure of sampling this crazy lambic. I normally wouldn’t pay so much but I really wanted to try this one. Dark reddish-purple color, minimal bubbles. Smell is funky like manure and fruit.Flavor is slightly sour and has a pretty robust fruit flavor that almost reminds me of blackberries. I have no experience with black currants so this is the closest thing I can reference. Overall this is a good fruit lambic but given the cost this will be my only bottle.

Hazy red beer with a purple tint. No head. Zero carbonation. Woody sour nose. Light palate - dry. Sour black currants but not acid. Barnyard and a little wood. Finishes dry. Sour enough without being silly.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 Pours fruit red amber with almost no fizz. Rough tart smell of currants and sweet Belgian grains. The taste is very bold tart sour berries, not much depth but the sweetness provides something to try to hold onto. The aroma is very hard to get used to until you get used to the flavors and then the nose matches slightly more. Easy going grains and moderate palate open up plenty of room for the fruit and yeast. Drying musty fruity finish. Not bad but mostly mediocre for a tart/sour/wild ale.

375 mL bottle, as pictured. 2010 version. Cork slid out very, very easily, essentially no carbonation left in this. Poured a deep, hazy cherry-red. Smells kinda sweet actually....some cherry, raspberry. Very dry mouthfeel, definitely does not wet the palate. Sour taste without much sweetness. I enjoyed it.

375ml bottle bought at the brewery in May 2011. Shared with Finn during a rating session. Some tiny patches to the surface of an unclear, red-brown coloured body. Dusty, dry fruity smell. Taste of acid berries and earthy malts with underlying hints of yeasty fruitiness. Dry and tart ending. Medium bodied. Palate cleanser with a refreshing touch (Tromsø, 20.09.2012).

Flaske 0,33l spandert av Rune og delt med ham under rateseanse hos ham 20 Sep 12. Mørkerød. Nesten ikke skum. God kirsebæraroma. Smaken litt medisinsk. Tørr frukt. Syrlig.

The beer is basically still. Radiant orange hued and pretty hazy. The aroma offers tart raspberries, funk. Very acetic. Berry presence is there, with a bit of vinegar in the finish. Tartness gains intensity as I progress through the beer. Lacking the complexity and depth found in my favorite raspberry lambics. Light in body and devoid of carbonation. Overall, this was ok, but I don't see myself purchasing this again, especially with the high price tag. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
