3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Bottle: The aroma is incredibly funky. It contains notes of berries, dirty diapers, and sweaty feet...a little too funky for me with the dirty diaper. It pours a hazy reddish-orange with a minimal pinkish ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with berries and sour grapes. The finish is moderately sour with some mild vinegar. Itís nowhere near as sour as the raspberry, but still pretty sour. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation and an almost flat mouthfeel.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours reddish purple with no carbonation. Barnyardy brett aromas get you right in the thyroids with a little cassis in there. Flavor is straight up tart cassis. Overall a very excellent lambic but would be better with a little carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pour is a brilliant hazy purple with no head and no evidence of carbonation. Aroma is lambic funk, wood, strawberry, and gym sock. Flavor is tart up front with loads of raspberry, cassis, and blackberry. The middle. The middle is more berries and the finish is a bit sour and a bit bitter with the lingering berry flavor. Leaves the mouth dry and wanting more liquid. Very dominant flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml corked and caged bottle. The first pour is mostly clear, though the subsequent glass shows a nice haze. Ruby red in color, the lightly carbonated body has just a thin rim of foam that circles the surface. Thin sheeting shows on the glass, though no lacing remains behind. The aroma is musty and very woody, with old, wet, cave aged oak asserting itself considerably. Cassis lends fruitiness, while dusty wildflowers and stone-like minerals bring a distinct earthiness. Flavors are similarly wild, with sharp citric acidity and bold cassis, with minerals at the midpoint and a lemony, oaky finish. The palate is semi-dry and very lightly carbonated, refreshing but lacking the little bit of fizz that I like in a lambic. Overall, itís quite the tasty brew. Great little rarity here.
