Corked bottle pours a dark pink/red with no head. Aroma of leather, sweat and berries. Taste is earthy, funky,sweaty upfront with tart berry flavor on the back end. Lots of sediment in this guy. Pretty funktastic.

Fin (8181) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at home Bank Holiday Monday 25th May 2015 Dark purple on the pour, almost vimto like but head is not pink. A little zippy fruit on the nose. Tart and tangy blackcurrants very dry. Like it, not massively so, but it’s very good, however one is enough. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.6

caesar (5656) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle from de Molen Beershop, bottled Febr or March 2014, large sample. Clear ruby color, short pinkish frothy head. Aroma is fruity, tart, bit barnyard, funky notes, oak wood. Medium sour in taste, quite dry, fruity, oak wood. Great balance like most Hanssens. Not extreme harsh sourness, but more mellow. Bit too much wood though. Soft carbonation.

Vignale (2415) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2015
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Till färgen som druvjuice med ett ytterst litet rosalila skum. Inte alls samma vinägersyra som i Exp.rasp utan mjukt syrlig och tom aningen vetegräddig. Bärsyrlig och ganska torr, svarta vinbär, röda druvor, mjukt bärigt rött vin typ en bourgogne, lite tanniner, läder och liten funkig stalltouch. Riktigt gott.

Nische (1115) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2015
Pours deep dark red with no head. Aroma is funky with barnyard, leather, oak and black currants. Taste is tart fruity, funky and barnyard. Quite heavily sour. Dry tart fruity finish.

wchesser (1396) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2015
Feb. 2013 bottle in April ’15. Gorgeous ruby red with low carbonation. Nose is pretty simple, typical funk, some nondescript red fruits, perhaps unripe raspberry. Quite tart, too much on it’s own actually, but works with some fatty Scottish salmon to balance it out. Tart, funk, indistinct red fruit again, cranberry, light oak. Too damn sour to have without food.

Mortlach (1143) - Rome, ITALY - APR 5, 2015
375ml bottle shared @La Tana (Rome) with ippopotamo36. Pours a deep violet (amazing!) color with a thin foam. Aroma is fantastic, so powerful and persistent, vinous, red grapes, blackberry, wow! Flavour is very sour, aggressive but pleasant, fruity, vinous, black currants, complex like a good wine. Medium body, medium carbonation. This is a real world class lambic!

The_Osprey (2928) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2015
Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell. Thanks! Very dark ruby red, small white head. Aroma is malty, apple cider vinegar, cherry. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is strawberry, jammy, blueberry, dried fruits, a little metalllic in the finish. Quite nice.

SHIG (3879) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle: Poured a purple with red hint, bubble flat head. Aroma was musty berry with some funk. Taste was a mix of tart fruit, acidic, grape, and woodsy.

SlovakSniper (3710) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
Vintage 2013. Nez de colle à tapis, fruit, cassis. À la limite du recommandable. Liquide qui brûle mes papilles. En fait, une gorgée sur deux est tolérable. Assez bizarre comme sensation. Acétique à l’os. Citronnée x 1000. Très difficile à boire. Trop c’est trop. C’est une blague ou quoi ce truc? Où est la caméra? Merci à rodenbach99 pour le partage.
