UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Pours a pretty, clear gold with a thin but lacy head. Aroma of apple cider vinegar, and light cheesy funk. Flavor hits you with spritzy tart apple and finishes lemony with a mild spiciness from the oak. Very light barnyard, but certainly not a mother funker. Champagne-like in body, and very refreshing. Alcohol is deeply closeted. Sooooo good.

33 cl bottle at home. Golden in colour, small head that disappears very quickly. Aroma is musty and lemony, pungent, almost acrid. Taste is tart, sherbet, musty lemon, sour and sharp with slight sweetness. Lively on the tongue despite low carbonation. Slight mouthfeel, the finish is sweet and sour. Very good overall, it reminds me of acid drop sweets we used to eat as kids.

bonkiedeaap (281) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a yellow/pale color and a nice large white head, with a lot of bubbles. In the aroma wood notes, citrus, notes, acids and a little sherry. The taste is very astringent and vinous, dry, sour apple crisp, a real brut the brut. There is a reference to sherry and fruits. At the end is the classic acidity and dryness of the beerstyle recognizable. Not my thing this beer, but some things were good about this beer.

Zarkam (447) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2014
330ml bottle from a beer shop in Kaunas, clear gold colour, small frothy mostly lasting white head, fair lacing. Aroma of grapes, leather and a bit of barnyard, leaves, vanilla and grain. Taste is initially slightly sweet and acidic, turning into a longish sour and slightly bitter finish with a hint of alcohol. Full body, oily texture, lively carbonation. A fairly new style to me but far from unpleasant and albeit an unfamiliar mixture, it seems fairly well thought of.

ramboraffe (560) - SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2014
Sample at ölrepublikens surölsfestival. Half clear yellow with small head. Smell is sour and funky with stables and basement aromas, barnyard and wet leaves. Taste is sour and dry with light sweetness. "Clean" sour taste, with less funk and stables than a lambic.

Bière surprenante, fermentée en fut de chêne. On découvre au nez une bière qui en a pas l’odeur, cela fait d’avantage pensé à un alcool fort. En bouche le gout est sucré d’une part et boisé d’une autre.
