Bottle - Extremely beautiful deep deep black red body, with a very right big bubbled beautiful head; Extremely beautiful, very deep and clear nose, the very ripe sweet black currant notes mixes perfectly with the drier deeper baking yeast, dry oak notes, big and strict; Very very sour body, a strange mix that I have never experienced before, a strange mix of malic warm and tartaric acids, velvet soft textured and actually quite full, very interesting; The very long finish starts with this strange acid mix as well, here quite biting almost warm acetic and then not acetic at all, not the acid of sour currant either but properly an interesting mix of them all, the aromas lasts to and changes pleasantly from dry fresh oak to ink later with the ripe black currant added. Very interesting beer. Thanks!

ruigo (2390) - PORTUGAL - SEP 30, 2016
37.5cl bottle from April 2016. Hazy dark red with no head. Funk, red fruit and acid aroma. Soft carbonation and light body. Taste is sour, acid with fruity notes. Overall, a good beer but lacks carbonation what probably makes it more acid.

Hopverdju (722) - BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2016
Donkerrood bier zonder schuim. Geur: stalgeur, azijn, zweterig. Smaak: azijnzuur met toch iets van fruit? Neigt naar wat volmondigheid. Weinig of geen koolzuur. Afdronk: vooral zuur.

axl (578) - Lund, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2016
375ml bottle. Deep red with no head. Aroma is black currant, earth, wood, funk, light acidity and unfortunately also burnt rubber. Taste is dry and earthy with wood, clack currant and light funk. Medium, somewhat oily, mouthfeel, no carbonation, intense but quickly passing acidity and earthy black currant aftertaste with an unfortunate passing touch of burnt rubber.

Erzengel (7928) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle from "The Bottle Shop, London. Great tart sourish fruity nose with lots of funky horse-blanket, but no carbonation. Totally flat. The Lambic starts fruity tart and very sour. The cassis is in the back, the aroma is there, but the vinegar-sourness is dominating the picture. Long and sour sourish aftertaste, more vinegar-sourness than horse-blanket, cassis fruity in the back.
Nice, but not as subtle and fruity as I thought.

SkillsFactory (555) - ITALY - SEP 12, 2016
Imbottigliata a marzo 2015, aperta il 12 settembre 2016. Schiuma rosa chiara avara e poco persistente di aspetto fine che forma un anello in superficie, di colore rosso scuro tendente al fucsia, velata dai lieviti e probabilmente anche dalla gran quantità di ribes nero. Aroma di polvere e legno ammuffito, oleosa, sudore animale, lievi note di olive nere. Al palato attacca decisamente aspra, ovviamente per via del ribes, successivamente polvere e legno umido, in secondo piano sudore animale e frumento, oleosa, note terrose, finale sempre oleoso molto persistente che ricorda le olive nere, legnoso ed accompagnato da una nota aspra di ribes presente per tutta la bevuta. Retrolfatto caratterizzato da ribes nero e olive. Texture oleosa, quasi masticabile, carbonazione medio-bassa, corpo medio-pieno.
