MartinT (8127) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Wheat, pils malt, citrus fruit and barnyard characteristics intertwine in this crisp P-Lambic.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slim film of foam floats atop the pale gold.
-White grapes are only subtly alluded to. Not the fruitiest of the series, but it’s still elegant and highly engaging.
-Soda cracker impressions come from the crunchy wheat.
-The aroma is not as attractive as the flavor profile.
-The tight, prickly effervescence creates a classy mouthfeel.
-White grapes may not be anywhere near the forefront, but they are intelligently positioned in the flavor profile, alongside the citrusy acidity.

Bottle.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Hazy golden color with a creamy, lacing white head. Aroma and flavours are tart, grape, lemon, brett. Very dry finish. Quite nice even if it is not my style.

JohnRMurdoch (3398) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle from BrewDog Glasgow. Rich amber colour, good head. Dry fruit (mainly grape) aroma. Dry bready grape flavour, sour aftertaste. Not my thing.

Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 29, 2011
from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark blond beer with a solid foamy white head; aroma of hay, cheese and bretts; fairly tart acidity and medium-bodied; some fruity juiciness below; quite dry and tart acidic cheesy finish

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2011
A 37,5 bottle. Pour with the most fantastic fizzy soundtrack from the frothy white head on top. The head stays put on top of the hazy straw coloured body, The nose is fresh and full of frsh green apples and sour grapes. There som bretty notes with fine lactic and accidic notes. Wet hay on top. The taste is powerfull without over doing it. Its sour but still with a very smooth and somehow sweet touch to it, The mouthfeel is both sparkling and smooth with a buttery feeling. Its very drinkable and refreshing and has a long mild sourness as a finish. Great beer...great beer

Scopey (7376) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle at home. It pours cloudy golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is white grape, citrus, farmyard and floral. The taste is white grape, lemon, Granny Smith apple, grapefruit, floral and wood, with a dry-tart finish. Medium body, high carbonation and soft mouth-feel. Really juicy and tasty. Well balanced. Could drink a lot of these!

Ratman197 (10192) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2011
375 ml bottle poured a clear gold with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of white grapes, straw and light barnyard. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of white grapes, straw and light barnyard with a crisp dry tart lingering funky grape finish.
