McTapps (3607) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from my European Summer Santa - many thanks to you! The lambic pours out in a hazy light dirty amber colour with low airy head and crisp body. Wonderful aroma of sour berries, very mild vinegar and green nuts. Wonderful balanced taste of a gentle but also intense sourness, unripe berries, gooseberries, light green nuts and light sour mash. High enjoyable and so refreshing and quaffable. Loved it.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2014
This rating is pure memory from about a month ago. Hazy goldish yellow pour with a large white head. Aroma of horseblanket, funk, must and lemon zest. Taste is slightly tart , funky with must horseblanket, standard barnyard funk taste, and refreshing lemon and a decently dry finish, very refreshing on a hot day.

SlackerMads (1431) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle. Light hazy golden with a medium sized diminishing white head. Leather, dusty, hay, fruit stack, oak. Medium body, oily texture, high carbonation, light/medium sweet and sour. It builds up, but falls a bit flat with a thin, fizzy and sweet finish.

Bamsen78 (2974) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy light amber with sediments and small white head. Clear aroma of peaches and malt, with vinous and estery notes. Vinous and dusty flavour, with notes of yeast. Bitter and sourish aftertaste. Very soft carbonation. Very decent, indeed.

Percepisco che è una birra speciale, ma decisamente troppo acida per i miei gusti. A chi invece l’acido non dispiace, la consiglio decisamente

lambicboy12 (42) - salt lake, Utah, USA - JUN 17, 2014
1- nutty with notes of honey, spicy brett character 2- light orange, some haze, quickly dissipating white head 3- A mellow sourness with a sweet tart flavor on the side of the tongue 4- light body with low carbonation, some slight astringency 5- 2002 bottle from my cellar, a wonderful beer that seems to have mellowed with age. The nutty and honey notes were a nice surprise.
