brokensail (9940) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 7, 2012
A yellow-orange color with a white head. Quite funky with tons of grass, must, and mushroom. Only a mild grape aroma to this, but a nice lemon peel character. Plenty of oak, too. The flavor is more musty and oak-forward than anything. A bit of grass, lemon peel, and only a mild to moderate grape flavor. Not much in the way of tartness on the palate.

Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2012
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours slightly hazy golden with a decent white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is barnyard, musty, funk, yeast, brett, and a little vinous. Flavour follows the aroma quite well with a slightly dry finish.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle shared amongst friends. Opened along side Spontancranberry. Not as in your face as the Spontancranberry but still a very good sour none the less. Funky and tarty, just what the doctor ordered.

ClubGonzo (3512) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a clear golden body with a medium and short-lived creamy white head. Aroma is fresh citric notes, green apples, grapes, hints of horse blanket and hay. Mellow. Taste is citrus and grape, citrus and grape *peel*, tart stomach-acid/fruit, some near-salty tones, lime and hints of bitter herbal grass. Dry, but well-blended nevertheless. Nice enough, but despite a great complexity this doesn’t come off as a star of any kind.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle at work, from a Trois Mousquetaires glass. Pours clear yellow, with a thin fizzy white head, and poor lacing. Nose is Heineken-esque skunkiness, which was really unexpected, along with green apple, green grape, and light funk. Flavours of green Jolly Rancher, some light funk, dry and spicy and very refreshing. Not the best fruit Lambic I’ve ever had...
