neongolden (704) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
(375ml 2013 bottle generously shared by a friend) Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with a bubbly white head and no lace. Aroma is very vinous with white wine and oak character, white grape juice, a little acetic/citrus acidity, a bit of apricot/yellow plum skin and a little of their tart flesh. Light caramel sweetness. The palate has a bit of a sweet core, lightly woody white wine with a hint of acid, maybe a bit of tangerine, apricot, a little plum, touch funky too. Finish is dry and lightly bitter and acidic with lingering apricot skin, bit of wood and funk. Medium full body with moderate carbonation. Certainly not overbearingly "plum" but an interesting fruit lambic with a nice blend of wine, skin and flesh tones, dry, not too sour, full bodied. Good stuff.

(from notes) Bottle shared by t0rin0 at the Stuffed Sandwich last week - thanks Bobby! Slightly fruity nose. Slightly hazy pour. Small white head. Soft fruit in the taste with a bit of sour in the finish. Really nice. Slight bitterness in the finish with a hint of funk as well. Very good.

GlasgowTAD (338) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Pours a golden yellow with a slight white head, that recedes into a white lacing around the rim. Aroma is funk. Taste is initially vinegarish sour, then slightly sweet followed by redcurrants, cranberry and some hints of raspberry. Body is quite light, not too much carbonation in this. Quite complex, has some characteristics which I can not define - not many beers put your IQ to the test but identifying the taste and aromas in this one will certainly do that!
