4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Dark hazy orange-amber body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Nose shows mild funky oak, must, blackberry, lemon and tannic red wine. Flavor carries these notes forward, presenting a bold, deep, and well-integrated flavor profile that shows a nice balance between the assertive blackberry and lemon notes, and the mild funky oak, must, earth, and wet hay. Medium to light bodied, good acidity, sourness, and gentle carbonation. A nice tannic-dry finish solidifies this as an excellent fruit lambic. Hopefully these guys have another project in the works--I am all in.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (thanks to Dak, I think). Pours with a hazed orange hued body with a retentive, off-white head. Aromas are delicous, zesty, blackberry, lemon verbena, funky, fruity, grapefruit, acidic, earthy, red wine. Flavors are softly funky, acidic, bright fruit, earthy, red wine, black berries, zesty fruit. Super. Tannic, dark fruit, nice acid. Lively, dry and puckering with medium tannins.
Would love to see more of this. A new take on fruit lambics with authentic lambic wort and microflora.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle (thanks Josh for sharing!). Poured a deep amberish color with a larger sized off white head. Grapes, vinous, some funkiness, with some fruity/berries. Lively and fizzy body that distracted from the overall experience (but still a solid beer).

Dark red pour with a short lived pinkish head. Really great berry aroma. Plenty of blackberry, a hint of cherry skin, a nice musty and earthy funk, and a soft lemon tartness. A nice touch of red wine, too. Tastes of blackberry, grass, oak, wine, and plenty of musty funk. A light earthiness, some lactic sourness, and a touch of residual sweetness.

Pour was a light purple, little head. Nose was light blackberry and fruit. Light sourness and lemon. Taste was sour, with strong oak and tannic properties. Very light blackberry and grape. Very carbonated feel, super dry. Overall, a great beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at my 30th Birthday tasting, from a 3 Fonteinen tumbler. Thanks Adam! Pours hazy deep pinkish red, thick dark pink head. Great lacing. Nose is blackberries, raspberries, pencil lead/graphite, big gentle leather. I’m stunned by how feminine this is, reminds me more of Framboos than anything else. Flavours of berries - lots of berries: Blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, and maybe just a hint of currant. Funk is present and correct, but not overwhelming. Spectacular balance. Loved this one!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl wine corked. A gusher, unclear and reddish orange in color, with a small, dense, orangey white head. Funky nose with lemony notes, barnyard and a vinous touch. Old leather, stable, some berries and a hint of grapefruit in the aroma. It’s tart and quite effervescent, medium bodied. Funky flavor with lots of acidity and lemon. Some vinous notes and berries. Lasting lemony finish with funk and some berries. A really pleasant one, complex and tasteful. 121109
