biirusaikou (2363) - - JUN 22, 2016
Sampled at Mechazilla’s epic insanity tasting session. Quite an epic blend, can feel lemon, apple, berries, nice balance, smooth mouthfeel, dry finish. Nice one, very smooth and enjoyable blend, maybe I expected it a tad richer though.

Hamirubi (547) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2016
7.5cl sample at the Ghent Beer Festival VI (22 VIII 2015). The unbelievable megablend between young and old Lambic from 3 Fonteinen, Boon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, Hanssens, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Tilquin and Timmermans. I have the 2015 bottle in my cellar - for aging (five years or so) - and this sample is a fresh one of the 2015 batch. First of all, this fresh drink not really is outspoken, alas. Highly carbonated, lots of (lemon) grass, some citrus and fruits. Maybe some zest in the mouthfeel too. The general character is sour and tart with a fruity balance. Some hay, some funk. Dry finish, as expected.

willisread (2216) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle shared at Mechazilla event. 2015 vintage. Wonderfully tart nose with lemon, gooseberry and granny smith apples dominating the nose. Some white grape notes come out as it warms as well as barnyard notes. Highly carbonated with a lovely creamy, oaky feel on the palate. Very sherry-like. The finish is dry and crisp with more of that oak feel that lingers. Fantastic.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2016 2011 Vintage. Hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma of barnyard, citrus, funk, orange zest, leather, very intense and nice. Taste is medium sour, very dry but nicely balanced. Flavor of lemon, grapes skin, sour gooseberries, red currant, leather, and earthy note. Very nice mouthfeel, beer is quite bodied, oily and smooth texture. Great Vintage. 2013 and 2015 are also very tasty.
