JorisPPattyn (7887) - Antwerpen, - NOV 7, 2012
Small, but relatively stable yellowish-beige head over fully cloudy orange-ochre beer. Farmyard odour, hard leatherfat, citrus (lemon especially); only very faintly fruity, all the more gueuze-y. Sharp lemony flavour; flowery, fruitzeste, again - if restrained - leatherfataroma as a flavour. Finish is rather abrupt, just the lemony sourness tangentially fleeting. Sharpish, very tart, dry-out effect to quite some extent. Maybe medium bodied still. Phenomenally refreshing. Just as experienced with other (non-lambic) quetche beers, there’s not a very distinct, recognisable fruitflavour. What remains is a superb lambicbeer... bettering all the time @ Tilquin. Grand merci à Jean ML

Ktwse (1974) - SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
Pours murky apricot with no head. Aroma of green grapes, fresh apples, hay and grass, bretta, elderflower. Taste is balanced fruity bretta tart followed by light sweet before a lightly tart finish. Light, crisp body with average carbonation.

@ Eddan 14-8-30: riktig trevlig doft med tydlig fruktighet. Lite mer standard smak av vindruvor. Fin syrlighet. Trevlig balans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

czar (4292) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
pours murky golden, kind of dirty - not the bottom of bottle, with a nice purplish head, showing some retention and lacing. nice funk in there - peppery and leathery bretts, other bugs, subtle fruitiness - apricots and some other small yellow and red fruits - not quite discernable prunes, some ’’sour’’ candies, woodsy astringent, very nice and complex acidity - citric, lactic and gently acetic, lime and lemon, lively yet gentle carbonation, light body, very dry, grassy and lightly astringent finish. very good!

madvike (2696) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 27, 2014
375ml bottle - Pours cloudy pinkish amber with a thin ring of off-white head. Nose is lightly fruity Smarties, lemon tartness, a bit of hay and funk. Taste is a sour, lemony blast, with some dark fruit peeking through on the finish. Must be the plum. Vinegary and puckering, with a bit of basement funk and cheese. Slick and medium-thin body, with biting carbonation. Refreshing and really tasty.

cmacklin (256) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours a murky, pale reddish amber colour with a very small off-white head. Pungent aroma has notes of horse blanket, brettanomyces, sour grapefruit and alcohol. Sweet flavour of fruit with notes of grapefruit, lemon, yeast and a dry, sour, acidic finish.

Koelschtrinker (10514) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Saurer Antrunk mit angenehmen Fruchtnoten. Intensiv, die Säure nimmt mit der Zeit leicht ab. Runde Fruchtnoten, vergleichsweise mild, gut! 12/12/12/12/10/12

JohnnyJ (4321) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy orange pour, with an off white head. Funky, quite sour, leather, hay, yeast, light fruit, notes of plum in the background, and some lemon. Nice lambic, but not the best.

No head. Coloured like the inside of a plum. Aroma is tart, bretty, light plum. Very dry and sour. The plum is in the background. Pleasant.

Bottle. Pours hazy bright orange with fastly dissipating white head. Aroma of wild yeasts, ripe fruits, honey. Taste is very carbonated, very tart, nice fruit on the back. Delicious.
