hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle... Opens and pours as flat as a pancake - clear and amber with no head. The fruity, funky bouquet is a fusion of raspberry, sharp cheese and horseblanket. Medium-bodied with basically no carbonation. The flavor is fruity, funky and SOUR as freaking Hell. There’s manure here, which wouldn’t normally be a negative for this style, but it leans a little closer to raw sewage than I’m comfortable with. Sour, lightly astringent, dry finish.

crazyvin (1858) - New York, USA - NOV 26, 2013
A slightly opaque orange amber body that lacked any kind of head and carbonation was minimal. Aroma hand a nice sweet note from raspberries upon opening. However the more tart notes of the lambic came through. Nice wild yeast presence. Flavor was mostly tart, some nice raspberry notes rounded out the flavor. Finish was fruity and carbonation was almost no-existent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ratman197 (9028) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2013
375 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear red with no head. Aromas of straw, raspberry, barnyard funk and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry tart finish. Flavors of straw, raspberry, light barnyard and a hint of citrus with a smooth dry tart lingering raspberry finish.

lesifflebiere (1026) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
Boisson rose-orangée à l'effervescence nulle, avec un fort parfum d'acidulé. Les framboises complètent le portrait. En bouche, très sûre, mais étonnamment, pas à l'excès. Les fruits rouges occupent l'arrière-scène, rendant le tout un peu plus "bonbon", mais elle demeure drôlement agressive. Un lambic assez surprenant, plutôt complexe, très savoureux, mais avec toute cette puissance, on perd la subtilité du chêne. Tout de même un bon exemple du genre. 3.6

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy orange color with no head. Amazing aroma with raspberries, barnyard, cobwebs, oak and some lemony notes. Delicious flavor, very sour, with raspberries, lemon, oak, a bit of vinegar and sweat. Finishes a bit astringent. Medium-bodied, flat mouthfeel. Really sour with acidity that punches you in the throat. Love it!

CanIHave4Beers (2908) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle via courtesy toss of box from Edmund Edmunds

Pours pretty much still, like good unblended lambic should... not that I know if this is blended or not, but it pours like an unblended. The color is a light orange.

Goodness this is funky, like almost Oud Beersel Oude Lambik funky.... almost. The sweaty animal hyde, the barnyard, they hay, earthy and pungent, not really smelling like vinegar, but just a step away from it...

The flavor is earthy & sour with hay and sour cherries... not a whole lot of raspberry going on but a little. It’s briney with light acetone notes. The vinegar character is low especially compared to the Cassis version. With some very limited reservations I’ll say that this one is very nice and reminiscent to some of my favorite "from the cellar" lambics I tried in Belgium.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle at the Grote Dorst. Pale salmon color, tiny lace head. Tangy raspberry aroma with horse blanket, lemon, leather. Lots of sour funk, raspberry, soft and silky body. Over-the-top sour, too overwhelming for me, but tasty.

RABinVA (1009) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle into a snifter. Pours amber with a pale pink hue. No head. Aroma is strawberry, tart, some band aid, big funky horse blanket. Taste is incredibly tart and super puckering. Like chugging the leftover sugar in a bag of Sour Patch Kids or a whole south full of Shockers. Was hoping to split with the missus but was too much for her. Definitely a bit difficult to drink a whole bottle.
