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.

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.

My bottle [12.7oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus. Pours a murky deep red/purple with a spare bubbly head. Aroma’s funky, earthy and very lemony along with plenty of tart fruit -- wow, this is intense! Flavour’s quite fruity, tart (but not as much as expected after that aroma), funky and citrusy -- delicious really. Acidic finish. Medium bodied. I loved it!

20100213 At Max’s BBF10, shared by Ryan, 375ml bottle. Beautiful bright maroon color, mostly flat. Aroma is nutty with leather notes beneath waves of barnyard funk, twiggy detritus. Flavor is smacking with vinous, tart currant, blackberry, and not a lot of sweetness beyond some soft wood notes. Bracingly sour. Really enjoyed this one.

Lateral cassis tasting, with Kuhnenn to smooth the tongue. This one is vinegary and woody, the cassis is there, its a sipper but very good for what it is. Pours dark berry colour, with no head whatsoever. Nice winter night beer.Above average mouthfeel.
