Beersiveknown (2791) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle at home from Belgium in a box.
hazy bright orange, lazily foaming, no head. Sharp funky citric acid and acidic fruit. Fairly juicy, sweet fruit, tart, well balanced between juicy fruit and mouth watering tartness, v easy drinking, closer to gueuze than oriented, well balanced and easy drinking.

ninecats (115) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2014
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.

Beerman6686 (4239) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2014
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.

Wombata (379) - Kobe, JAPAN - JUL 25, 2014
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.

(375ml bottle) very bright orange/pink, fine white bubbles, it’s 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 I’ve had.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle @ Armin’s 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.
