375, capped, IIRC. Thanks, um...BVC? Murky rubied dark brown. Headless. Laceless. Big aggressively forward nose of lemons and rare BBQed poop. Ultra-funky. Thin watery body. Cassis and a little funk on the mid-palate. Not for the beginner. Not for the feint of heart. Not for anyone who doesn’t understand that sometimes beer smells like freshly used toilet paper.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2009
T3. Dirty pink in the glas with serious floaters. Super sour on the taste. Total funkmeister. One of those where the sum of the parts doesn’t add up to the whole. The whole is better.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2009
Pours dark opaque grapefruit – puke in color with no head. The aroma is very berry fruity like with a mild layer of tartness just under the surface. The taste is bug and tart up front with hints of berryness. The nose didn’t lead on that this was going to taste as tart as it does. It ends with more and more tartness without being overwhelmingly tart.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2009
Thanks to Redlight for getting in this rarity. Pours a raspberry color with low carbonation. Aroma of cherries, vinegar and a funky tartness. Flavor is a little more subtle and watery, with light cherries and a less powerful tartness than the aroma would indicate. The tartness picks up as it warms. Very good.

StefanSD (2190) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle at Toncatchers T3. Pours a sorta pinkish color, no mention of head in the notes. The aroma is funky with loads of barnyard smells. The taste is very sour with tart berries, leather and wood. The mouthfeel was silky smooth with light carbonation. The finish was dry. Overall: A very nice lambic.

Served from a bottle at toncatchers T3 tasting! Thanks to stefanje, lagunitasfan, weeheavysd, fordest, wetherel, alohac and of course toncatcher for suppling the house and grub. A very nice Lambic. Lots of sour and funk. I liked it.

Why is the name of this changed the bottle says different. Bottle you know it, you know it from juiceisloose. Thanks Jus to the Is Tin. Pours reddish pink with a tan ring. The nose is so nice I want to smell this or so everyday for ever, its so good, not a 10 but I don’t want to post a thread about what your favorite smell represents I don’t want to see any fecofeliacs on the forums they should stay home. Taste is sweet and rich and tart and funky and overall nice.

hopscotch (9490) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2009 Bottle… Pre-C&P’sLYFO Throwdown… Murky, dregs-like, cherry-red ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Aroma of leather, manure and horse blanket – funk house fun – minimal fruit. Light to medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and nearly expired carbonation. Sour as hell. Finishes tart and watery, but eventually dries out a touch. Mucho kudos to TheCheeseMan for providing the bottle!

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Bottle. Sampled at post-NOTB tasting (Thanks Paul!) and multiple samples at Zythos America. Pours murky purple, capped with a small pink head. Sharp lactic aroma, with blackcurrant and wood. The flavor is not as acidic as the aroma, with notes of blackcurrant, earth, wood, and mild tartness. Very drinkable, with medium body and light carbonation. Really delicious beer.

C&PLYFOTD: Bottle. Pours a reddish pink hue, with a limited head and lacing. Big dry tart nose, with massive amounts of cherries and toasted grain. Dry flavors, tart, grainy with cherries, and thick oily hops in the finish. Big body, easy to drink. Very good.
