Osprey87 (1711) - WALES - SEP 19, 2014
Keg at Brewdog. Pale orange, hazy, small white head. Aroma has coffee breath, food waste bin, maybe some background citrus. Body is light, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste has some orange and lemon with a cutting sourness. In fairness, the taste is fine but the body and aroma are not pleasant.

A typical lambic aroma and appearance. Taste is sour as is to be expected. Nothing unusual for a lambic.

375 ml bottle thanks to _angst_, sampled on September 16, 2014. BB 28/05/24.
Clear copper color, smallish white head. Light acidic, druity, canned mandarid scent. Smells like the fruit often used for decorating cakes in Sweden when I was young. Acidic, sour, fruity, mandarins, apricots taste. Acidic aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.

MrChopin (3288) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 16, 2014
[ Tap ][ 4oz ][ Max’s ][ $4 ][ mini-pint ][ 9/16/14 ]
hazy copper, large bubbled white head drops quick, lasting ring and oily top. Footy saddle nose, dusty with muted fruit notes, high acidity no sweetness. Sticky front is sour, no sweetness but lightly seedy fruit, husky vegetal and wood notes mid, lightly burnt through the slick, plastic finish, chewy like the spontanpeach, fruit strongest in the finish but no sweetness, more similar to a watery Foufone, brightness all in the sourness, unfortunately also meaty/rotten with high acidity.

Smell is sour and slightly funky with lemon juice, grapefruit juice, mandarin oranges, dry soil, leather, barnyard, kumquats and lemon zest. Taste is sour, tiny salty, fruity and funky with crackers, grapefruit juice, mandarin oranges, dry soil, moist hay, barnyard, kumquats and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is dry, tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour, tiny salty, fruity and funky with crackers, grapefruit juice, mandarin oranges hay, barnyard, kumquats and lemon zest. Nice funky citrus-focused lambic.
