ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, - JUN 21, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a moderate white head, which lasts well but does not leave much lacing. The aroma offers a cider-like blend of tart apple and dusty leather notes, with some sour berry notes playing through it. It is strongly sour up front, with tart apple and preserved lemon notes. These give way to a blend of funkier sourness and leathery notes in the mid-palate. Light oak and more fruity sourness make up the finish. This is not a bad lambic, although not the most complex one out there.

Bue en bouteille de 37,5cl. Acidité modérée, peu de corps. Finale boisée. Pas mon truc.

Zoret (119) - Badalona, SPAIN - NOV 12, 2014
Cervesa amb aromes afruitats de pera, poma i raïm, també trobem els típics aromes de Brettanomyces, un punt àcid, una mica de celler i un toc especiat. De color daurat fosc i escuma blanca. En boca es àcida amb una acidesa ben integrada i un final amarg. Cos mitjà-baix, efervescent i una mica aspre.

JorgeLee (1270) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle from BottleDog. Deep golden colour, high carbonation. Very aggressive souring, tasted like one particular souring bacteria dominated, doesn’t have the depth of the best lambics. Nevertheless quite refreshing and went down easily.

Sour, tart bitter. Very sharp, sitting somewhere between a beer and a wine or cider. Very yeasty and funky too. I have to admit this is nt my kind of beer. But sipping it works and the taste is quite overwhelming. Interesting stuff.

mcberko (7230) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a clear golden with a large, quickly-dissipating white head. Nose is lovely, with complex tart fruits, lots of barnyard funk and leather - yum. Flavour isn’t as complex sadly, though it’s still quite lovely, with notes of dry leather, lightly tart citrus skins, low-to-moderate funk, and yeast. Carbonation is medium, though fairly aggressive for an unblended lambic. Really excellent stuff here.

spacecube (972) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2014
375ml bottle, pours hazy golden brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is sour lambic style, dry grape & citrus, body is thin and dry, finish is short, slightly sour and dry, finish has a tonic water bitterness. Livey carbonation. Good, but not as much all roundedness as the best lambics.
