Bottle at Borefts 2014. Cloudy pink orange. Some plums on aroma. Then good sour beer in mouth leading to an excellent sour finish sweet and sour plums run through it. Good solid. Not as good as the squared but good fruit led lambic. Good to excellent

Maakun (755) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
Borefts. Hazy orange pink with almost no head. Massive funk, grains and sourness. Nice prunes on the nose and some in the taste but not that much. Some horse and barnyard and sour milk. Pretty good!

Hermod (3414) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2014
From 750ml bottle @ sbwf14. Deep amber, thin white head. Barnyard, ripe apples in aroma. Heavy stuff. Flavor has apples, some vinegar, funk, dried apricots. Very very dry. Apricots lingering.

jookos (2526) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle@ssbwf14. Orange with a grayish haze. Lovely horseblanket farmyardy, some funk acidity and a bit of a slivovitch- ian vibe. Not just the plums, but similar phenols as well. Tickling acidity, good hay maltyness. Dry body, long finish. Real nice. The plummyness isn’t as apparent as most fruits in gueuzes. Subtle, nice.

reebtogi (4303) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
375ml bottle pours a hazy orange color with a 2 finger white bubbly head that dissipates quickly leaving very little lacing. Aroma is plums and lemon with hints of yeast. Taste is a tart fruit and sour lemon with a light hop and very dry lingering finish. Light to medium bodied with generous carbonation. A nicely done lambic that is definitely for those who like a tart and sour brew.

Luk_ (203) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle 750ml 2013-2014 vintage. Pours a salmon pink with small head. Highly aromatic with plums, flowers, light farmhouse and yogurt. Taste is very sour: lactic and citric. Plums are well represented and I also get grapefruit and bitter citrus peel. Light bodied and dry. Very good lambic fruit.

Flaska på Beer Ditch. Smak och doft av plommon, röda bär, peppar, jäst med toner av citrus. Vinös, torr, viss syrlighet. Frisk med fin beska.
