UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Had this one two times allready. First time was a small sample from Erwinís glass at the brewery. Second time we opened a bottle at ít Schooltje with Carlo and Urbain Nose is rather mediocre, slightly citrus, some exotic fruits. Taste is nice sourness, prunes are not very prominent. In fact itís more a really good geuze, with a little bit more fruitiness to it. Good job. Looking forward to upcoming batches of this. Update: I really donít get why the first and second batch are under the same rating. Those are two totally different beers. First one was a real complex geuze with a nice hint of the plums. Now itís just liquid plum pie... I donít get it...

Bottle from 2013. Pours deep cloudy orange with a quickly dissipating white head, leaving a lid on the surface. Aroma of immature apples, berries, barnyard, vinegar. Taste is very tart fruity, later even more tartness out of citrus and vinegar, a woody hint before a dry finish. Medium to full body, medium carbo, slight oily texture. A nice display of the tart side of fruit lambics, nicely done.

This poured a darker golden yellow with a white head. Aroma was of light barn, cheese, plums, oxygen. Flavor was mellow, not really sour at all, lightly funky, grainy, with mice fruit skins, tasty.

pintbypint (2567) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
375ml green bottle, corked. 2013-2014. Best before 06/02/2024. Pinkish orange pour, cloudy, a few floaties in spite of my careful pour. No head or lacing, steady rising carbonation bubbles in the glass. Has a complex nose with barnyard, plum/fruits, lemon/sour. In the mouth the beer is very tart, vinegar and lemon notes, wet oaky hints,spiky sour fruits. Dry end, wood on the tongue. Medium viscosity, but lively carbonation. A lovely treat, an interesting and satisfying fruit lambic.

Aroma: Vinegar, sour peach and pear. Flavor: Sour peach, vinegar, pear, ume, straw and yeast. Comment: Refreshing tartness. Perfect for cutting through the heat and humidity of a Japanese summer.

thirdeye11 (5505) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2014
(375ml bottle) very bright orange/pink, fine white bubbles, itís almost jammy in appearance. Nose of bright plum, very tart, barnyard funk, fruit Dominates. Taste is where this beer absolutely excels. Super tart unripe plum, sour cherry, yogurt, herbs, amazingly delicious. One of the best lambics Iíve had.

Bottle @ Arminís apartment. Thanks to Luke for sending! Pours a cloudy, slightly dark orange appearance with a bubbly white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Funky, cobweby, bright fruity nose. The plums are super nice in the nose. Hay loft, dusty, cheesy aroma. Good carbonation. Kind of spritzy. Moderate lactic acid in the mouth. Complex, barnyard funky, juicy flavor. Some cheesy notes. Not much acid burn on the finish. The fruit is really nice in the background and not too dominate. Dry herbal, grassy finish. Great beer.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, 2013 bottle, thanks a ton Aaron for this long time want! Aroma brought notes of big sour fruit, oak, funk, basement, nice fruity notes with some stone fruit, hints of grain. Taste is a mix of grass, grain, biscuit, bread, touch of funk, yeasty basement and dusty notes, nice fruit, finishing fairly sweet, very tart, dry. Very tasty, could drink a lot of this.
