Danish: En sur saison variant på 6,5% alk., brygget i Januar 2009 af Shaun E. Hill. Den har lagret i franske Pinot Noir egefade med Brettanomyces i 4 måneder, og ved tapning blev øllen blandet med Drie Fonteinen Lambic 2007 – personligt udvalgt af bryggeren. Resultatet er en unik sur øl med duft af hestedækken, kostald og jord (!), en smag med præg af eg og citrus, og en let tør, frugtig og bitter krop samt en sprød, krydret eftersmag.

English: Saison Lambic Pinot Noir is a sour saison style beer, brewed in January 2009 by Shaun Hill, and after finishing in the tank, the beer was racked into a French oak Pinot Noir barrel and aged in this with Brettanomyces for 4 months. At bottling the beer was blended with a small proportion of 2007 Drie Fonteinen draft lambic that was personally selected by our brewer. The result is a unique, distinctly sour beer with barnyard and earthy aromas, oaky and citrusy flavours, and a light, dry, fruity and bitter palate, ending on a crisp, spicy and lasting note.

Bottle shared at A Day To Sink All Sea Shepards tasting. Cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of Bretty funk, citrus, mineral notes. Flavour is above light sweet and bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation. I’m sure it was better fresh but it certainly wasn’t ruined by age as I feared. [17-09-2016]

Extreme & manifold thanks to fonefan!!! Hazy orange. Nose is walnut oxidation, sweet with low yeast, faint sulfur / grape note, barn. Nose is pretty lovely, kept well. Taste was a bit too yoghurt, yeast forward, sugar, yeast dominates, hay, bit yeasty sweet, oxidation, grapes are gone, low funky barn. Yeasty body. Must have been quite something way back but too old I figure now to really shine.

Bottle via trade. It pours hazy golden orange with a small white head. The nose is golden delicious and granny smith apple, hay, melon, subtle orange, tangerine, spice and damp wood. The taste is soft orange, tangerine, Granny Smith apple, faint spice, hay, floral, pleasant tartness, sherbet and damp wood with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. The Drie Fonteinen lambic has definitely taken hold! Great depth of flavour, yet remains delicate and very drinkable.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle @ Bruce’s. Thanks to Paul for finding this ghost bottle! The pour’s a slightly hazy light amber color with a small white head. The aroma’s very gueuze-like. Light citrus, rustic farmhouse. Light brett. Animal fur, a bit of unwashed armpit. Dry, woody attic. Hints of sweet orange and cheddar. The taste is dried cork. Lemon/lime citrus sorbet. Some dried herbs and leaves. Farmhouse yeast. Slightly dry bretty tang. Old sweaty sock. Really complex flavors. Effervescent, light gueuze profile. Slightly chalky. Overall, a really interesting beer. Thought-provoking stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Bottle at Bruce’s, London - big, big thanks to Paul. Pours hazy gold with a fine, creamy head. Great nose, lots of grass, old wet wood. Light to medium sweet flavor, some apples, light peppery spice, mellowed grassy bitterness, dank wood. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Light tangy finish, moderate grassy bitterness, light tartness, wood, faint tangy lemon. Nice stuff overall, good nuance.
