4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep burgundy pour with a thin white head. Aroma of tart fruit, cherry skins, toast, vanilla oak, green wood, sweet cereal and earthy basement funk. Flavor is tart funk up front, a little vinegar, toasty wood, sweet and tart cherry skins, vinous notes, and some tart citrusy notes. Light body, dry, crisp and acidic feel with a light, but sharp carbonation. Good stuff

Very sour, a slight metallic taste. Almost like a raspberry wine. Probably a zero IBU

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A 2009 vintage bottle. Opened with a soft pop. Poured out a hazy ruby red- a beautiful color when held up in light. Smell of cherries, blueberries - all rotting with a faint smell of yoghurt. Went off like a sour bomb in the mouth. Complex, gooseberries and lots of sourness. Fantastic !

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an almost clear, deep ruby red, with a thin head.
Intensely fruity, funky aroma, cherries, red currant, citrus, Brett, earth.
Bone dry, medium body, low bitterness, appropriately low CO2.
Fruity, funky, sour taste, cherries, red currant, earth, citrus, hay. Quite complex and rustique. There is a tiny acetic note that disturbs me a bit, funk and acidity I am cool with, but I do not remember picking up acetic elements in lambic beers? Highly enjoyable, nevertheless. (2014-12-20)

At Antwerps Bierhuyske. Red beer with little head. Nose is very sour, cherries, earthy notes. Taste is quite sweet at first but goes over in a tarty sourrness to the end. Medium body, nice cherrytaste. Like!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark red color, quite clear, beautiful pink-ish head.
Aroma of mostly leather and old/kind moldy barrel or wood, very intense, in a bad way. In a flute glass you could sense cherry notes, but not much. Taste was acetic acid mostly, not awful but not good either. Very overpowering and you couldn’t sense much else. There were some cherries somewhere... Very very dry and sour.
This one was a bad bottle I hope...

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Sauerkraut taken straight from a wooden barrel, mixed with vinegar and sour cherries. Guess I have yet to learn how to love those uber-sour beers.
