caesar (4950) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2010
Bottled. Clear redbrown color, short reddish head. Aroma of blueberry, oak wood, apple, varnish, dry wood, leather. Woody taste, dry, slightly sour. The dry wood is overwhelming and reminds me of a dry cider like westons. Nothing like the usual lambic.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2009
Bottle. Reddish pink color. Leather and a hint of berries in the aroma. Sourish flavor with berries. Lots of plastic and lemon. An aftertaste like it has come out of a jerrycan. Not a very outspoken fruit character. Disappointing.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2009
Bottle@Home. Brett, old leather and cassis aroma. Deep red colour, pinkish head, good lace. Sweetish, hint of sourness, strong leather, bitter, berries, marzipan. Flat mouth feel. Not bad, interesting, not really a lambic and I had to get used to it first.
