Pours reddish brown with no head. Nose is grapes, grapes, grapes, vinegar, grapes and soil. The taste is a wonderful tart with a hint of bitter and some good sweetness. The mouthfeel is soft and sticky, the body is medium and the finish is long.

JulienHuxley (3076) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2013
375 ml bottle thanks to Boutip. Nice clear red pour, white ring of foam. Aroma of cherries, syrupy, light vinegar notes, young wine. Taste of cherry juice, not as sour as expected, light sourness, sweet/sour finish. Palate is a tad syrupy, light carbonation, still quite easy drinking though. Decent.

shoulderbroken (2026) - 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.
