4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at my CBC birthday, London. A big thanks to Tom for providing us with this beer. It pours a light, hazy red with a creamy foam head. Aroma has some berries, poo and grass. Light to medium sweet flavor, very tart with sharp berries, mild sour sting, some earthy bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine, stinging fizzy carbonation. Dry, berry fruit finish with lots of grassy bitterness. Lasting tart berries, light earth and grass. Very, very good beer overall.

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.

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).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL thanks to forgetfu. Bright jammy strawberry pour with low haze. Pinkish foam subsides. Nose is jammy, salty, a bit vegetal. Taste is sharply carbonated with a ton of minerals. No acid. Just a bit bland and dry. Not really doing it for me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gushing to huge dirty-pink head, fluffy, over hazy red beer with an amber-brownish sheen. Pure lambic nose with putteke included, leather, lightly horseblanket, citrus and indeed purple berries. Little fruitiness, lots of (Girardin-recognisable) lambic. Hint at sweetness. Fruit: yes, blackberries: no. Tart, dry-out effect, lipsmacking sourness. Excellent. Might benefit from being a little stronger on the fruit, but if these are really blackberries - brambles - then Jean van Roy affirms they hardly colour/flavour beer.

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.
