BuckeyeBoy (5964) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle Thanks to ditmier for sharing this treat. Pours out a cloudy ruby red topped with a small head. Aroma was sour, barnyard, cherries, leather, and some oak. Taste was more of the sour cherries, a little citrus, and some light oak.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep red color lambic with a tiny bubbly head with no retention and no lacing. Aroma of barnyard and funky notes is quite powerful. Taste is also dominated by loads of barnyard and wet leather notes with nice tart cassis and some sour and light acid notes. Body is about average with no carbonation. Very complex beer with no sugar notes and loads of lambic really coming through even though cassis are still discernable.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2011
375ml Bottle: Aroma of cassis, oak, lambic, wood, and leather. Poured ruby/magenta in color with no head. Cloudy. Not sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of oak, cassis, water, slight funk, and some leather. Medium body. Average texture. No carbonation; totally flat. Medium sweet, cassis and oak finish. I wish it had been carbonated.

Lowe1983 (1517) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Pours a dark red color with a pink head. Aroma is of oak, wild yeast, and some horse blanket. Strong oak and black currant flavor on this one. Plenty of wild yeast and horse blanket on the finish. Not much carbonation.

obguthr (5646) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Very sour currant nose, with a subtle funkiness. Clear blood red. Astringent and sour, but tolerably so, all currant. Vinous texture, tannic even. Not really all that special, but well made.

TheAlum (6942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
375 ml bottle at Derek’s Tasting. Pours a rich garney glowing hue, a light haze, no real head with a few loose bubbles. Aromas are pretty strong barnyard, hay, horseblanket. Touches of blackberry, raspberry tannins, touches of oak with more horseblanket, funky brett, dryness, grass and hay. Pretty funk dominant. Initial is fairly flat, light bodied, with with some blackberry, black cherry, and touches of raspberry, tart with decent tannins, a touch of lactic acid. Fairly funky, horseblanket, hay, funky brett. Finish is thin, funky, touches of tart berry tannins. Funk dominated, lack of carbonation hurts it a bit. Not bad, funk is great. Carbonation is the issue

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Not sure who shared this one, but thanks! Poured a a near clear ruby red with no heads whatsoever. Aroma had a manure/barnyard note with some quite sour red fruit. Flavor was similar with the manure funk taking a backseat to the sour red fruit.

piscator34 (2344) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 28, 2010
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Blood red in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of currents, flowers, diaper pail, and earth. Currents dominate the palate as well, along with some elements of lemon, fresh mozzarella cheese, and savory herbs. Medium bodied with bracing acidity. Not subtle at all, but very enjoyable.

Veldrid (120) - Canton, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2011 Poured from bottle. Ruby in color with little head. As expected aroma is currants, funk, and wood notes. Flavor follows suit with a tartness. Solid sour that I wish I didn’t spill half of : (

JohnnyJ (5400) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle. Clear purplish color, small fizzy red head. Fruit, sweet currants, and acidic sourness. The flavor is muted, and seems a bit watery, but the acid bites the throat. Not very good.
