Bottle @ Borefts Bier Festival 2014, Bodegraven - NL. Color: hazy orange beer with no carbonation and really small white foam. Smell: sour domination with fruity taste as apricot, fresh white plum. Taste: well balanced of sour and fruity taste. Really nice work! Aftertaste: astringent taste with fruity taste. Sour presence.

RasmusOtt (1147) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle @ BBF 14. Pours murky orange with a tiny white head. Aroma is pretty tart with vinegar, sour unripe plums, classic lambik rural and funky notes, apple cider, leather and stable. Taste has those same funky notes along with the sour and fresh plums, grape fruit, lemon peel and some overall funky notes. This is very good. Would love to drink again!

Alengrin (1801) - BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2014
The first plum lambic to my knowledge, with a lightly pinkish white, thin, stable head and a pinkish peach blonde colour with orange hue, hazy. Complex, estery and assertive lambic aroma of lemon, hay, sour yoghurt, unripe plums, raspberry, wine vinegar, old sherry, vanila, oak, tomato... ’Malse’ lambic taste, complex, lactic acidity and sharpish citric acidity, fresh, sherry-like with unripe fruit, woody and funky finish, very long, dry with some leafy hop bitterishness. Great fruit lambic, though the actual plums remain somewhat hidden - but in a beer this complex, that could not bother me at all.

harrisoni (13773) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
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 (657) - 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 (3283) - 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 (2268) - 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.
