Bottle. 12.7 oz. Split with Sean for his 22nd Birthday. Night age; sipped both before and after aging. (Air Riff, Annie). Blushy pink pour with a reflective, headless body. Aroma of savory cheese, musty barnyard funk, slight plastic/Sharpie marker notes, and just a hint of the currants, with some plum and cherry as well. Medium bodied with a cuttingly sour, almost balsamic palate. High, dry, and full-on sour in the finish. Very good lambic; well balanced and enjoyable to sip.

Not a huge fan. Dull and lifeless body, but not even in an interesting way. Nose has some good fruity qualities but they are somewhat lost in the flavor. Thankfully it’s not overwhelming with the acetic acid like some bottles I’ve tried, but I cannot really say this is all that special.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Pours clear and dark purple with the faintest of white heads that’s gone instantly except for a small circle of bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. The aroma is quite tart with some vinegar traits and lots of cassis - the fruit is still very vibrant even though I’ve held on to this for at least a year. There are hints of oak and a bit of funky yeast. The body is smoother and thicker than most lambics and there is not trace of carbonation. I don’t know if this lambic is supposed to be still, but this one is. The taste starts off with a sour cassis, earthy wood, some of oak aging and a hint of green apple. The finish is a bit muddled with the flavor blending in an odd way. Nice lambic.

smith4498 (3252) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Pours dark purplish red color with no head. Aromas of sour currants and barnyadr funk. Very sour currant flavor. Mouth puckering sourness. Light to medium body with no carbonation. Very tasty.

yngwie (15379) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2011
Bottle, 375ml corked. A reddish orange beer, quite clear, and with a little rim of off-white bubbles for head. Sourish, vinegarish aroma with a good dash of berries, although more reminiscent of raspberries than black currants. Some cellar hints. The flavor is citrusy-sour, with berries dominating, finishing lemony and berry-sour. Dry, medium bodied and puckering. A quite lovely one, even for me who don’t care much for black currants. 110204

italarican (1526) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle at Eulogy. Pours a shiny straw color. Aroma is sharp of acetone with plenty of lemon. The flavor is 65% funk and barnyard, 35% mouth-puckering tart peach, lemon, and raspberry. Sharp acidic bite with an awesome funky dryness. Slightly syrupy body. Overall, wonderful.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2011
Small white head. Hazy deep purple body. Deep earthy funky blackberry aroma with barnyard notes. Dryish rounded deep earthy fruity taste is simple and short. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry raisiny watery port aftertaste with raisiny waxy notes. Loong aftertaste. Really unusual, and highly drinkable. (Taster at the brewery.)

Koelschtrinker (12645) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Wenig säuerlich, dafür um so fruchtiger präsentiert sich der Antrunk sowie der weitere Verlauf. Im Mittelteil wässrig, meist aber verdeckt durch die angenehme und leicht süßen Fruchtnoten. Dies kann aber nicht über den sauren Grundcharackter hinwegtäuschen. Im Abgang aber dann doch wässrig. Leckeres Fruchtlambiek, das zwischenzeitlich zu scharf wirkt. /11/12/12//12
