shoulderbroken (1990) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 6, 2013
Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Brown red colour, pink bubbly head. Aroma very complex, every sniff it changes, funky, bit stinky, fruity strawberry, cherry, raspberry, bit of plastic, quite cheesy, sweet too but much better than I have made it sound. Taste is nice, lots of cherry, nice sourness, marzipan, sour finish. Bit of a sparkling white wine feel and taste. Very strange, but pretty nice. nice and bubbly, not really gueze like but interesting enough.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - DEC 4, 2012
Tasted from the bottle, on 27/10/2012. Pours of lovely muddy dark ruby color Aroma is intense, but strange, slightly "chemical", vinegary. Taste is much better, a kind of a mix of dry wine and lambic, excellent. Aftertaste is very dry, with notes of raspberries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wolfbass (903) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 11, 2012
Appena versata nel bicchiere, sembra proprio avere a che fare con un vino frizzantello, schiuma che svanisce immediatamente. Color ramato scuro. Al naso deciso vinoso, sentore legnoso e leggero fruttato. In bocca gli 8 gradi non si fanno sentire, anzi la beva è molto semplice, e va giù che è un piacere, ancora molto vinosa, aspra e leggermente secca.
