mathieuc (1956) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
Pours a clear reddish copper with a small white head that leaves really nice lacing. Nose is of pretty intense bandaid at first but after a while it mellows into cranberries and, light funk and oak. Taste is sour and lightly puckering with some nice fruity and acidic cranberries and oak again. Really refreshing. Never harsh and the lambic character is dialed-in just right. Lightly lemony. Body is light, carbonation moderate and this would pair well with some blasting sun. Overall a solid Spontan, if only all were like this one!

Nickls (1942) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Pouts with no real head, hazy ruby punch pink color. Wood, leather, slight berry pit, and a touch sour aroma. Flavor is more woody, vinegar sour, light leather, slight grain and hay, missing the cranberry fruit, a touch earthy and a yogurt tangy finish. Light fairly still body.

chimpgibbon (410) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Keg at Electricity Showrooms. Very muddy dark ruby. Light red fruity barnyard. Medium tartness but not very sour at all. Some lemon. The least sour of this series for me. Nice zippy palate. Decent but not great.

oh6gdx (22073) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 23, 2015
Bottled. Orangeish pink colour with a small white head. Aroma is sour wood, with some berries, mild wood as well as some earthy and herbal notes. Flavour is rather tart and sour wood along with some berries, mild toffee, alcohol and herbal notes. Wellbalanced and pleasant to drink.

RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle. Hazy red amber in color with an off-white head. There’s a fairly good amount of sour red berries and funky notes in aroma. Dreaming in red. Not forget the lemony and oaky notes that are there as well. The taste is quite sour as well from all the red berries. Dry and sour with a sweet twist in the end. Nice one.

CanIHave4Beers (3535) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a beautiful red color with a champagne rise and fall head.

The aroma is really nice, funky with some barnyard, some wet hay, wet wool. & some lemon. The fruitiness here is spot on, not sweet... but very forward, bright, but working well alongside the other aspects of the bouquet. This smells like a cranberry lambic through and through.

The flavor is actually pretty sour, there is way more lemon character than cranberry, although the tart cranberry flavor is always in the background. Very tart, a little leathery, with some citrus rind and yogurt. As it warms it get’s a little fruitier, & takes on a sort of woody/cork-y thing, that’s nice.

Easily one of my favorites of the series.

tdtm82 (1010) - Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle; 33cl; poured at home for Gabriel Zombier’s birthday. A nice white foam above a clear-ish red-orange texture. Very nice on the eye. Aroma is gain; sugar; cranberry, marzipan, hey and fresh dough. Taste is cranberries; tart; sharp acid; lemon curd; wood; some earthy notes and bubblegum. A very nice sour and one I’d like to have again. Cranberries work exceptionally well in a sour. Top stuff.
