375ml bottle sampled at the DC Local tasting. Pours a Translucent purplish red, with a thin, circling white head. Aroma is peppery, funk, cheese, grass, hay, cranberry, cherry. Flavor is very tart, white pepper, cherry, cranberries, grass, hay, lactic acid, lemons. Flavor has a lasting tartness. Nice.

Beerman6686 (5381) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2010
This one poured almost a purple color with an off white head. Aroma was of deep funk, wet dog, some citrus fruit and dark fruit, and spice as well. Flavor was amazingly sour, barely balanced by the black currants, very funky. I now see where the term sweaty gym socks comes from.

garthicus (2808) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 4, 2010
Many thanks to Blankboy for sharing with HogTownHarry and I. Appearance: Ribena purple with the tiniest almost non existent head. Aroma: Poopy blackcurrant, sharp, bitter, almost tingles the nostrils, I don’t know about you lot - but I like it! Flavour: Lovely tangyness, under-ripe blackcurrants, like when we were kids and were too eager for them to ripen on the bush (that’s what she said) really sweet and salty, a lovely long bitter finish. Really nice.

HogTownHarry (6278) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2010
Bottle ( 375ml - green, corked & caged ). Deep ruby-red, pretty much no head, slightly murky-looking. SOUR; that’s pretty much it - lemon, unripe berry, massively funky. The taste is remarkably restrained - compared to the aroma; sour but not overpowering cassis, a little sticky and sweet underneath, a little alcohol, and plenty of dry, funky yeast - really tasty. Thick, acidic, mildly carbonated, a long dry yeasty-sour finish; simple, but quite a lot of fun.

- La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2010
Corked bottle from Solan, thanks! Purple red color. Blackcurrant, tannines and a hint of oak in the aroma Sour, not as rudely sour as the raspberry. Blackcurrant, oak, tannines, like the leaves and pits have been added. Low on carbon, but very drinkable.

Bottle thanks to Glouglouburp!
Dark red-purple with a thin white head. Nose of strong barn notes with beefy currant element and citrus bite, definitely a Lambic when compared side-by-side to Consecration, as a Sour. Flavor even more noticeably Lambic, heavy citrus and green fruit with some berry notes. Definitely thin, but not painfully so as some have noted. It beats up on Consecration, but it’s not remarkable.

cheap (4618) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2009
At the RB Pgh gathering 12/09. Slight aroma of burnt rubber and horse. Purplish brown maroon with same color of sedimment floating around there. Sour and flat. Tart in a funky barn way. Like sucking the old juice out of wet wool blankets. Quite rude and interesting at the same time. Very unrefined and uncivilized. Its like somebody was shoveling horse manur around the open tank when it was fermenting. That burned sensation and ruffness lives on thru the finish, what an experience!

Thanks Frylock! Pours a grape pop purple with no head. APpears to be entirely flat. Nose is lemony lambic goodness, funk, wood, some olive brine, berry fruitiness. Flavor is acidity, some fruit juice, more of that brine. The second bottle was way less briney than the second - and better for it!
