4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
colour is a very wierd blood orange, no head. Aroma is the basic sourness of lambics with hints of sweetness (plums?). Taste is light sweetness, medium sourness, lightly bitter, i might be imagining the plums since i know about them, but there’s undescribable depth to the taste compared to other lambics i’ve had. light body , light dry sour finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Prufrock pulled out this gem to follow a Westy 8 and an Almanac sour.
Plum lambic -- a first for me. I guess it’s Dom Perignon of pruno. This one pours a hazy coral peach with a white head and lots of floaters. The aroma is a mild sour with...with raspberry koolaid. Or is it tropical punch? In any case, it’s definitely koolaid and that totally cracks me up.
After a few minutes of enjoying the subtle humor of the aroma, I move on to the first sip. Wow! After the aroma that had me almost worried about syrup sweeteners, the flavor, while easy drinking, is surprisingly legit. Plenty of leather, plenty of funk. Not aggressive at all, just truly delicious. I really like this one. A nine for flavor. The bottle races by all too quickly, and thankfully the koolaid aroma disappears almost by magic as I go forward, leaving behind a delightful wild lambic.
tl;dr summary: Accessible and delicious fruit lambic

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle, acquired in trade with mcberko -- thanks! Pours an amber-orange-copperish color with offwhite head. The first whiff of this brought a smile to my face. Carl laughed out loud when he took his first drag, and pointed out that it smelled just like kool-aid. And yep, there it is - straight funky beer fruit punch Kool-Aid. Maybe it just reminded me of childhood? Anyway, sweet-tart, kool aid, plummy arouna. Taste: super tart, the hast has a bit of mineral in the end. Barnyard, leather, well-integrated fruit, band-aid and awesomeness. After a few sips the kool-aid aroma disappears. Medium body, lively carbonation. So drinkable, but also full of complex fruit and barnyard funk. This is delicious.
