Finish is dry, tart and slightly metallic with hints of bilberries.

Beer5000 (5901) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle @ Schouskjelleren RBNAG-11. Hazy pink/purple body with an off-white head. Nice and funky aroma with berries, particular blueberries as no surprise. Flavor is refreshing fruity, a bit acidic and some barnyard funk to a certain degree, but this is definitively no real fruit lambic Belgium style. It takes a lot more than a beer, some fruit and adding Brett to make the real stuff. But it’s fun and refreshing to drink.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is ruby. Aroma and taste are rich blueberries, citrus, malt and hops. Not that sour, but very fruity and berry-authentic.

ClubGonzo (5416) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle @ Schouskjelleren, Oslo, shared with Geokkjer, gunnfryd, Beer2000 and abemorsten...and maybe some others...a lot of bottles going around... :-P Pours a deep amber-hued pink body with a small white head. Nose is strong funky barnyard, horse-sweaty brett notes, hints of blueberry, lemon and straw. Taste is lemon and bretty funk, with hints of blueberry and straw. The blueberries hardly come through at all, but remains hidden in the back for the most part. Thin body. OK, but it kinda lacks a bit of substance and ends up tasting a bit like concentrate fruit juice in diluted form, like the anemic little brother of a real fruit lambic. Still OK, but not great.

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2011
0,5 l bottle at Schouskjelleren kindly shared by Geokkjer. Pours clear copper with a creamy off-white film. Black berries, spices and jam on the nose. Acidic flavor with a juicy, soft drink feel to it. Medium body. Dry tongue. Nothing near real lambic.
