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.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
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

Thanks Matt! Pours a golden color with little to no head. Nose is very funky with wet hay, blankets, and straw in the mix. Taste is very similar with a touch of raspberry. Very acidic and tart. Feel is very complex, with plenty of sour acidity. Overall, a good beer that improves the more you drink. Cheers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

Bottle from Connecticut Ave. in DC. Served in a Hanssens tumbler. Pours a deep purple color. Heavy acidity. Not too much fruit character; only color. Light body and high carbonation. Very sour; a bit too much so without enough depth. Touch of earth and currant.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. This pours red and is opaque. No head. A sour vinegar and fruit nose. This tastes like sour binegar. Fruit with vanilla and tannins. Aged cherry with raspberry. Interesting and nice.
