Rasmus40 (14263) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2012
Unclear dark red with a huge pink head. Aroma is sweet, berries and barnyard. Flavor is medium sweet and rather acidic. Dry and rather acidic finish. Not much black currant left. 090512

jackl (5821) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle at Scopey’s CBC Tune-Up. Hazy cranberry purple color with no head. The nose is sugary cranberry, yeasty barnyard. Dusty wood chalk. The taste is acerbic tangy acid, light juicy berry and sharp cheddar cheese. Light body, quite drinkable. Soft carbonation. Overall, quite nice. Not my standout of the spontaneous series, but worth a try.

gEUS (1505) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2012
375 ml bottle - pours hazy bordeaux alike with faint pink head. Aroma of dark berries, strawberry and a slight hint of cassis. Light nody with gentle tart start, murcky middle and sour end, citric acid in the finish... not bad, but I miss some more fruitiness... some strawberry though after some seconds after the finish...

dlinn (141) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2012
Wow... +10 for ’pucker factor’ fruity sour notes on the aroma. Very sour taste. Fellow raters mention a cheesy flavor. I can derive that from the sourness, but I’d say the fruity flavor masks a lot of it. Overall a fun beer.

arminjewell (8674) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2012
Pour out of 375 mL bottle thanks to Aaron and anker for it! Dark hazy reddish with thin white head, aroma has notes of big lemon, sweet currant and tart at the same time, nice funky notes with a hint of raspberry and other berries, touch of blackberry, hints of biscuit, some vanilla as well. Taste is big, big lemony lactic acid, slight cheesy and vanilla notes, hints of funk with a slight dirty mineral note but quickly fades into a sour and biscuit finish.

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle @ Dans house, courtesy of Anker via Rune. Thanks guys! Hazy, pink ruby appearance with an off white head. Tangy, a touch funky, sour, dark berry, blackberry-like aroma. Huge fucking puckering, cheesy, big dark berry, dark raspberry/blackberry, tangy lemon, rich vanilla, puckering flavor. Very nice.

Fred82 (2118) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2012
375ml bottle shared by Rastacouere.

Appearance : Ruby red with a small head.
Aroma : Sharp tartness and slightly acidic. Fruit pits notes.
Taste : Sharp and vivid fruits with light acidic notes. Nice tartness as well. Light funk.
Overall : Nice fruity finish, nice tartness. Nice light funk. Not as good as the redcurrant and cranberry. Still not bad.

mile (3459) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2012
Bottle. Reddish, cloudy, average and fully diminishing pink head. Moderate, fruity and lightly sweetish aroma, sourness, blackcurrants - berries. Body is medium, fruity and dry flavor, sourness with blackcurrants - berries. Finish is average, some fruitiness and dry, lots of sourness and blackcurrants - berries. OK lambic but not great. Huge amounts of blackcurrant flavor - bit too much.

Murky blueberry color, smallish pink head. Rather acidic scent. Very sour taste, berry aftertaste. Moussy mouthfeel, mouthfpuckering sour bitterness.
