Bottle 75cl. @ Papsoes blindtasting. [ Bottle #18. ]
Light unclear medium amber red color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is sour, tart, fruity, medicine, chemical, a bit to tart and unbalance because of to many off notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and acidic with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090501]

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2010 another IH lambic from bockyhorsey. pours a reddish version of the others/hazy red tinted amber with a samll off white ring for a head. this one smells much sweeter than the first two (kreik,lambic)... still, musty, lemon, nice red wine vinegar, funky spices and something which reminds me of a hospital. tthe flavor is quite the same... sweeter than the first two and lacking that rigid sourness but still funky and mineral-y. it is fuller on the palate though it is missing a punch and sharpness. 7/4/7/3/15/3.6

ketchepillar (1152) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Huge thanks to pepsican, badbeer, and iowaherkeye. Tons of sweet fruit ala Raspberry Tart-not as much though. The fruit is more like strawberries and blackberries than black currants. Becomes dull in the finish.

pepsican (1451) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Pours a murky brownish red with a small white head. Cassis, dust, and lemons dominate the aroma. Flavor is similar, just add bandaids and strawberry jam. Lightly tart finish.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2009
Hazy red with a medium white head. Funky aroma with sour cherries and medical notes. Flavour had tart berries along with medical and cinnamon notes. Finished sour but a bit unbalanced and with to many off notes.

(Trade with Jaxson) Small pinkish head, about 1/4 inch thick, but it’s falling quickly. Huge sour aroma. Typical ton of carbonation as in a lambic. Dark purply/red color. Thinnish body. Flavor is a cross between black currents, red wine and vinegar. Could really get used to drinking this because it’s not heavy, and the flavor is super. As it warms up the cassis flavor is more pronounced. Not overly sweet, but heading towards the sweet direction. Thanks again Jason!!

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle shared by bockyhorsey at hellbilly’s holiday tasting. Pours a hazy deep red color with minimal head. Slightly funky dark berry aroma. Flavor of sour berries, yeast, funk and a touch of salt. I like these Iron Hill lambics. Thanks Bill!

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2009
750ml bottle shared by Bockyhorsey at hellbilly’s holiday tasting. Pours mohagany with a small white head. The nose is vinegar, sour currants and light funk. The taste is sour currants, malt and red wine vinegar with some white pepper in the finish. Medium bodied. Very good beer. Thanks Bill!

Courtesy of Bockyhorsey. Pours a reddish brown with a white head. Aroma is sour, cidery, vinegar, prunes, rasins. Flavor is sour, currants, funk, yeasts, salty seawater. Finishes tart and astringent. Another nice lambic from Iron Hill.

livelaughlovep (108) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Acidic yet sweet aroma, strong on fruit, taste is sour, tart fruit, astringent, horse. Rich, multilayered, complex. Really beautiful, even if I’m not very into sours.
