2009 Bottle - Thanks Beerlando!! - Pours a hazy ruby with almost no head...big white bubbles, aroma is funky and lactic, fruit skins, tannic oak and slightly medicinal...flavour is tight lemon that opens up into tart red fruits, the currants becoming more pronounced as it sits, but also gives way to a earthy/dirty taste that is mildly distracting...nice acid and almost a still pour...

375 ml bottle; thanks to beerlando for the trade; dark red with some thick yeasty sludge at the bottom; pours practically still; thick, poopy nose with dark fruits, cherries and funk; nice is quite nice with cherries and yeasty funk, but flavors are a little lacking; funky cherries, currents, wood and cheese

Tap@WSF. Not overwhelming in cassis nor sweetness and I like that. Pretty sour and a bit woody. Maybe just a hint of vinegar.

Tap at WOSF’10. Sour milk, mildewy basement and black currant aroma. Purple red color with no head. Sour malt and basement aroma - only a slight hint of currants. Really funky.

Into my Cantillon glass, this murky pomegranate hued beer is sadly headless, but beautiful nonetheless. An aroma I’d expect from the best lambic houses - horse blanket, hay, musty barn, etc. The cassis makes the faintest appearance in the aroma, but I had to search for it. The body is under carbonated, nearly still. Lots of musty, old barn flavors on the body, with a stronger yet subordinate black current flavor. My mouth is parched as this tart brew lingers for minutes.

Pours out dark ruby red. Flat with a berry woody smell. Taste is a big tart berries flavor with some mild funky wood notes. Not that sour, nice tartness. Great flavor, a very good lambic.

375mL bottle. Pours completely flat out of the bottle with nary a bubble to be found. The body is as a fairly murky ruby red. The aroma is seriously funky with tons of barnyard aromas in addition to some vinegar. There is more than just the funk though as the sweetness of the fruit successfully fights through the funk. The taste has a completely lip-puckering vinegar sourness up front with the earthy funk holding off until the finish. Honestly, there’s more fruit than I was expecting from the aroma and the brown sugar and currants form a solid backbone under the brett. The mouthfeel is extremely wine-like with a very dry and refreshing finish and almost no carbonation. A very good lambic with a serious funk and acidic punch on tongue but with enough fruit to pull it off. Good stuff and extremely refreshing.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Corked bottle from SoLan. Thanks, Alan!
Pours a muddy, murky cranberry juice red with a nose-punching aroma of sour cranberry and overly ripened sour strawberry. Hints of raspberry soaked in cedar vinegar are in there as well. Flavor is a punch-in-the-mouth rush of bittered and soured cranberry and cherry, with dark fruits left in oak rounding out the flavor. Thin yet lingering mouthfeel. Wow. This isn’t a beer; it’s an experience. AWESOME.

Pours is cranberry red with a thin head. Flavors are extremely tart raspberries. The mouth feel very thin and water-like. The finish is very sour and acid.
