Bottle at Muckfest VI. Clear brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, slight caramel, cider vinegar, black pepper and florals. Malty flavor with slight caramel, walnut, oak, tart tamarind and slight hop before a peppery finish.

See-through dark brown pour with minimal light grayish brown head. Smells exactly like Drie Fonteinen lambic. Seriously. Mouthfeel is awesome. Carbonated enough. Easily drinkable. Flavor is, indeed, nutty but like this awesome nutty lambic situation going on. Its not AS good as Belgian lambic but its tart and funky and delicious.

Bottle, shared by Steve during our brief catch-up and IP trade, an annual occurrence it seems! Many thanks for thinking to bring this for sharing! Dark brown, lively beige head that retains nicely. Aroma is vinous and acetic, underlying dark fruits. No sign of walnuts beyond a nutty dryness in the finish. Quenching and highly drinkable.

dresden (1460) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
Shared with Tony. Dark brown with a cream off white head. Aroma is vinous, vinegar, slight oak. Dry and sour, very good stuff, reminds me a lot of many crooked stave beers. Very good.

375 ml bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of caramel, leather, horse blanket and fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of toffes, leather, yeast, fruitiness and horse blanket with a crisp dry tart finish.

Originally reviewed on 6/1/2013. 375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Murky brown. Small khaki head. Nice surface wisps and retention. Wow, it actually smells like walnuts. Sharp acidity. Lactic. White pepper. Sharp sourness. A little bit of letdown. Malty. Nuts come out in the back. Not as dry as Prolegomena. Better body. Nutty. A unique take. I expected something similar to Prolegomena, but this has a totally different profile.

(375ml bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of walnuts, cherry, vinous, cranberry, and wood. Flavor of cherry, oak, walnuts, strawberry, chocolate, and dates.

375, thanks to Dany. Dark rusty red. Flanders red meets some smooth nuttiness.
