Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of kristina. Pours a hazy golden with a small off-white head. Tart, farty, Bretty nose with a little fruity sweetness. Medium body, sweet and tart, quite some Bretty horse blanket. The Litchi don’t really come through, but it’s a very pleasant and drinkable Lambic. 230312

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Thanks emacgee for sharing. Cloudy golden with a bit of white lace. Nose is quite sugary upfront, with some light fruity tartness, salt water, starfruit, lychee. Flavor is similar, just way too sweet to be lambic of any caliber.

Pour is hazy orange-ish pour with nice slightly off white head, aroma has notes of tart berry, cherry, hints of cranberry, touch of lemon, funk, touch of lactic acid. Taste is a nice mix of biscuit and grass, nice funky earth, slight cheese, slight berry notes, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry. Pretty nice, but restrained.

pantanap (3340) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2012
750ml bottle purchased at Wlv and shared in Dunedin../ pours a semi-hazy medium orange brown pour and topped with a thin to medium creamy white head. Pretty consistent throughout... Aroma of semi-tart tropical fruit with not too much of a distinguishing lychee presence. Almost a light peachy apricot aspect to it. Solid sour feel to it... Strong tropical fruit character with a good degree of lactic sourness. An earthy bitterness to cut through mid to late and lasting through the finish. Shy of medium bodied with a semi-lively mouthfeel. Nice sour without at discernable pure fruit presence.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 with a name like Sour Bitch, this should be great! .. pours a frothy gold orange .. medium head, lacing is alright .. . touches of strange wood, pear, and some yeast.. not really at all sour .. . this falls flat and even at 2.5, i’m being generous .. . not enjoyable in the slightest... . edit, my slight attempt at humor has been removed.
