ClarkVV (4346) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 8, 2015
2011 Magnum shared by Adam C on 7/25/15.
Fairly foamy white head shows poor retention atop a dull golden body that has a good clarity.
Odd sweetness in the nose has hints of vanilla cookies with very tart, boisterous brett esters. So itís kinda sweet and fruity....Pineapple, hickory nut skin, lemon....but just too much sugary sweetness, even from the nose. Late sharpness/heat from too much alcohol, but itís not obnoxious. Other than the powdered/cookie-like sugars, itís passable, if very uninspiring, just like its friend Bzart Oude Lambic.
Flavor is a bit better, I guess? Though thereís a weird sugar-meets-cooked-meat sorta thing. Plenty of acidity, lots of lighthearted citrus and a very, very thin texture, despite it being amply carbonated. Again, not horrendous, but with so many amazing lambics out there, the fact that this stuff is like ~50 bucks a bottle on average in America is just laughable. Some people like these softer, sweeter, more approachable lambics and thatís fine, but I hate them. If I want malt, Iíll go drink a stout, thanks just the same. Canít even bring myself to buy the kriekenlambic, though Iíve never had it. They have it at Downtown Wine and Spirits for the bargain price of $65.....

AirForceHops (4686) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Yet, another Magnum during the big magnum tasting, thanks Adam. 2011 vintage. Aroma is oak, lambic yeast giving that mild baby diaper nuance. Light funky cheese.

Flavor has the light oak upfront with a good amount of sweet grain or malt ( canít tell because of the mild baby diaper hints).but itís not shitty diaper, so it has that gong for it. Mouthfeel has some mild acidic notes. Dry texture. I like it more then I thought I would.

ClubGonzo (4753) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep clear copper-hued golden body with a large, fast-disappearing white head. Nose is extreme bretty stable tones, citric peel, lemon juice, apple vinegar, hay and hints of straw, red berries and balsamic. Taste is heavy bretty stable notes, red berries, metallic grassy hop tones, straw and hints of lime, acetic acid and mild pale malts. Light body, high carbonation. One of the most bretty geuzes Iíve had, enjoyable but highly remarkable.
