FatguyRacer (159) - Crownsville, Maryland, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle - Vintage 2000. Pours a cloudy amber/orange with no head at all. Looks like apricot juice, but similarities end there. I like the Lambic style, but this one may be a bit too sour for me. The aroma is of strawberries, sour apple and wood. The sourness hits hard on the first sip. It’s very dry on the finish and not much of an aftertaste. This is a sipping beer for sure. I hardly even tastes like a beer. I should probably try more of these and see if I warm up to the style.

rayaron (1391) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks Yoav. Slightly hazy golden-yellow with no head. The aroma has some funk, strawberry and vinegar. Very sour flavor with notes of strawberry and vinegar, a bit watery. Flat, light to medium-bodied. Great.

zvsn (1653) - ISRAEL - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting, thanks Yoav. Murky orange, flat, no head. Aroma of strawberries, wild berries, vinegar and barnyard. Sweetish-sour, vinegar, lemon, sulfur, prickles, salty flavors. Nice, but too much vinegar for me.

thomashall (649) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2016
375ml bottle shared. Cloudy golden pour. Super acidic funk aroma, some strawberry. Taste is soft up front, then gets acidic at the end. Not bad but could be better.

SlovakSniper (5088) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
L’habituelle acidité poussée jusqu’au seuil de l’intolérance. Aucune bulle dans mon verre. Nez dans lequel je devine la fraise, les houblons fanés, le sésame, le lambic. Goût acide qui brûle ma gorge tandis que la fraise apparaît comme une huître dans la bouche d’un gars qui s’est brossé les dents avec une substance caustique. Bouche morte et depuis longtemps enterrée. Finale comme une fièvre ardente. En résumé, mauvais, mauvais, mauvais.

samires (106) - POLAND - SEP 14, 2016
Golden coulour with slightly hazy touch, no head. In aroma leather, hay, big on strawberries, some mild spicy notes, some fruitiness and light yogurty sourness. In taste there is pretty strong nail remover, some hay and strawberries, it’s slightly sour and actually burns in the throat. Flat, burning in throat, slick on palate. Taste is terrible, it makes this beer barely drinkable.

Vighals (3162) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2016
Gulbrun tåkete uten særlig skum. Lukter at denne er sur, gjær, lett fruktig, trevirke, noe jordbær dukker opp. Denne var skikkelig sur, jordbærene er absolutt tilstede til langt ut i ettersmaken. Fat, vanilje. Herlig, kraftig sur smak, snerpende lang avslutning.

ciocanelu (1326) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 12, 2016
Deep golden color with no head. Aroma is fruity, kind of sweet with a slight chemical note. Taste is sour and fruity, slightly acidic with a nice strawberry note on the finish. Flat, slightly acidic body. Not bad but the mouthfeel could be better, it really needs some carbonation.

bursprak (2500) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle from Kihoskh. Hazy dead flat orange, pinkish pour. Nose is pleasant with tart berries, strawberries and some light funk. Taste is straight up acidic, some hints of strawberries and plastic.

brnandersen (3272) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2016
Sample from bottle at CBWF 2016. Slightly hazy golden amber colour with no head. Tart, fruity aroma with strawberries, barnyard, lemons, wheat malts and yeasts. Taste is sour. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes tart, fruity with lemons and strawberries. The strawberries is a fun addition. However, it doesn’t add extra layers of complexity to the taste.

Sample from a bottle at DØE 2016. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of yeast, fruit, vinegar, acidic and tartness.
