cervmagpt (437) - PORTUGAL - SEP 3, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 23F). Bottle 37.5 cl - Batch unknown (BBF 04/07/24). AROMA: lambic-style brett aromas dominate with sour notes of barnyard and horsey. very faint and overwhelmed cassis aroma and some wood notes. APPEARANCE: dark ruby color and hazy. average pink head with moderate retention. TASTE: moderate sour flavour with characteristics like the aroma (horsey, goaty) and some wood barrel. fruit not very evident. finish is dry and tartaric. PALATE: medium-light to light body with a tart character. low carbonation. OVERALL: a poor fruit lambic-style beer without much fruit character. Resembles more a gueuze.

Maakun (1653) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Hazy purple with lighter purple head. Cassis, hay, sour grains, dusty. Quite funky, with some nice fresh fruits, followed by bitter hay and twigs. Taste is medium sour and light to medium bitter with very light underlying sweetness. Medium bodied with bit spritzy carbonation. A bit unrefined but not bad.

FlacoAlto (3891) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Sampled February 2014
A steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a two finger thick, pale purple stained, light tan colored head. The beer is a deep purple, concentrated amber hue that shows a brilliantly clear, rich purple hue when held up to the light. the aroma has a slight concord grape like note followed by a bit of buttery oak character, and perhaps even a touch of ripe cheesy character. Grassy, foxy, wild grape like notes, a light, but pervasive musty character, and some toasted, pale oak woodiness is also her in the aroma.

Lots of fruit, a nice tartness, a bit of aspirin like chalk / mettalic character, and lots of tannic oak / fruit skin character. The fruit character is quite rich here, lots of red grape like character, a bit tannic fruit skin character that has lods of fruit flavor along with it. Lots of buttery, and a bit of ripe cheese character adds a bit of balance and funk to the flavor; contributed by the oak, perhaps the fruit, and the fermentation character. Lots of tannins here contribute to a palate texture that is a bit richer than the light body would have otherwise suggested. The beer has a very soft sweetness that almost seems suggested due to the rich fruit character.

The fruit character adds a definite richness to this beer, and it is nicely balanced by the tartness, a light funkiness, and a firm oak character. This is a really nice beer that I am quite enjoying. I would not describe this as a Lambic at all, as it falls short in the funk and complexity that I like to see in the best of those, but it is quite enjoyable in and of itself.

procraste (200) - FRANCE - AUG 1, 2015
A l’apéro dans le jardin, sous les lianes des plants de kiwi, c’était bien rafraîchissant. Bien acide avec un fruit expressif, je la préfère à sa sœur "SpontanGooseberry"
