Had on tap at 28 Springs thanks to Casey. Pours a pinkish hue with a very thin quickly dissipating pinkish white head. Aroma is sour fruit and dirty diaper funkiness. Wonderful. Very tart and funky. Sharp fruitiness. Very nice beer. Had with the Cuban fried steak. Good choice all around. I hear that Casey got two cases of this. Make your way to 28!

Inbreak (2401) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2014
04.10.2014, 0,375l bottle shared with friends:
No head, just some bubbles. Lovely deep red color. Aroma is slightly dry fruity, berry skin, oak, dry sour cherries, grass, unripe black currants, sorrel. Taste is dry fruity, berry skin, hay, overripe crowberries, dry cherries, oak, minerals, hints of black currants. Medium bitterness, very dry mouthfeel. Nice, but it’s more in the direction of cherry than black currants, and very little sourness.

Bouteille. De Molen Shop. Robe pourpre intense et huileuse. Nez profond de chene, teinté de cassis. En bouche c’est doux, acidulé et agréablement marqué par le fut. Belle finale légerement astringente et bien fruitée.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2014
From bottle. Very nice funky lambic nose, acidic and Bretty. Black currant and raspberry notes, vinous. Ruby red clear with no head. Medium body with very light carbonation, almost still. Starts and stays tart, acidic. Bretty-tart fruit character, currant and blackberries. Funky sour finish with funky after. Nice fruit lambic with slight touch of oak.

37.5 cL bottle at home. Pours murky red with a ring pink head. Aroma has some barn, berries, red fruits, wood and forest fruits. Taste has a really nice balance between sourness and fruitiness with some berries, red fruits, tartness, some wood and a slightly dry finish. Medium body and light to medium carbo. Nice stuff.

@ Eddan 14-8-30: en fanatisk bärdoft kombinerat med en mycket syrlig smak som den bundar i en trevlig söt bärig eftersmak. Gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

ClubGonzo (4224) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle from bieresgourmet.be webshop. Pours an opaque deep purple body with no head, looking like a muddy black currant juice of sorts. Aroma is lemon, citric peel, horse blanket, fresh and present blackcurrant tones and hints of hay, mild burnt rubber and something reminiscent of wet moss. Taste is mild citric tones, black currants, lemon juice, orange zest, horse blanket and hints of burnt rubber and Chevre-style goat cheese in the back. Full body, no carbonation to speak of. I like it, but the freshness in the aroma doesn’t quite follow through. And as with the experimental raspberry version of this series, a bit of carbonation really wouldn’t hurt. Still a fair enough fruit-juice-style-lambic with some originality at play.

Benzai (8908) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle shared with Erwin Van Moll @ Van Moll Brewpub. Opaque dark red color, small pinkish head. Aroma is sour, sour fruits, horse blanket, burned plastic. Taste is quite well balanced, sourness but not too much, sour red fruits, quite dry. Decent body and carbonation. Don’t like the aroma that much but the flavor is pretty good. Not too extreme, certainly not harsh as you normally get with Hanssens.

Swaroga (1441) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2014
Butelka 375ml. Piwo prawie nie ma piany. Pachnie przede wszystkim torfem i oborą. Potem dotrzeć można do owoców : jabłka, winogrona, malina, czarna porzeczka. Wodniste i prawie w ogóle gazowane. W ustach średnio słodkie o dominujących nutach cierpkich i kwaśnych ale nie do przesady. Łatwe w piciu i bardzo ciekawe. Pozostawia posmak cierpkości owocowej ale i tez tak zwany "funky" posmak podobny do papryki chilli i mięsa.
