bierkoning (10563) - 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.

finol (2263) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2009

hirigalzkar (2365) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle. Meaningless fruit lambic. No sourness, no fruits, no funk. Thin mouthfeel.

olsvammel (3578) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2009
It poured a hazy red liquid with a very small reddish foam. It had a strong sweet and sour smell of gruits and berries. It tasted fruity and yeasty. But I couldn’t really feel the blueberries, tasted more like black currant and other red berries. It was also a bit watery and lacked some depth and roundness in the mouthfeel. Sorry to say that it didn’t live up to my expectations, not one of the better lambics I’ve had.
