4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours yellow orange with a minimal white head. The aroma is very tart, with some vinegar and some funk. The taste is very tart with some sour strawberries and other fruit. There is also a little bit of funk but it pales in comparison to the pure tartness. Light mouthfeel and very drinkable. Very dry finish.

Bottle at Armin’s with friends, courtesy of Armin. Thanks man! 2000 Vintage. Pour is slightly hazy with no head. Sour fruity, tannic, somewhat peachy, dirty, caramel, doughy, and apricots in the aroma. Taste is funky, skunky, somewhat tangy, fruity, strawberry, raspberry, and heavy acid. Light body with no carbonation. Pretty tasty, especially for 14 years old.

Interesting taste hard to describe. Sour and smooth. Not what I was expecting. I expected more strawberry taste

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Pours out a murky orange and nothing I do will make a head appear. Huge cheese aroma. Cheesiest lambic I’ve ever encountered. Then I notice lots of nice strawberry notes mixed in there too. Taste is musty, burnt rubber, berries and orange. Strawberry is quite indistinct by comparison but I pick it out occasionally. Not as sour as I remember their kriek being. Tasty stuff, but strawberry probably isn’t the best fruit for this style.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mörkt gyllengul, nästan helt utan skum. Ciderlikt utseende. Doften är fruktig. Drar mer åt smultron än jordgubbar. Även en antydan till syrlighet. Smaken är väl balanserad mellan fruktighet och en vinägersyrlighet.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
07/09/2013 375ml bottle. Ambrata pallida, schiuma bianca leggerissima. Al naso sentori di fragola, sottobosco, mentuccia, lieviti selvatici, stalla, muffa, note acetiche. In bocca ha un’acidità decisa, grezza, le fragole si percepiscono molto bene, purtroppo c’è anche una nota acetica che via via si fa sempre più aggressiva. Corpo medio-basso, carbonazione media. Mediocre.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, from Holiday Wine Cellars in Escondido. Not sure what vintage, pretty recent I assume. Cork lifts with no sign of carbonation and the beer pours dead flat. Color is a slightly cloudy dark gold. Aroma of wheat toast, orange rind, bitter grapefruit and strawberry. Flavor is bitter citrus fruits, less on the strawberry, with a pleasant funky cheese finish and astringent acidity. Overall not balanced; a hint of staleness on the back end. Maybe I got a bum bottle...I don’t know. Still somewhat enjoyable; Ive definitely had better.
