2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
GCBF. Pour a light reddish brown. Aromas of vinegar, wood almost like a flemmish sour. The taste started off with some woody notes and funkiness and then a big hit of sour, followed by a lingering funkiness. The sour was far to much for me.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2010 I must disagree with the others.This was horrible.Visually unappealing.Slightly sour, but overpoweringly acetic, to the point of ordering fries to pour it on.
A very poor offering
Many years later, this is even worse

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, slighlty purplish brown colour. Aroma is fruity, with cobweb mustiness and some slightly plasticy notes - a byproduct of the fruit probably. Strong acid flavour - mainly lactic but a fair bit of acetic, too, accented by fruit, leather and wood. Puckering finish. It doesn’t have the smoothness nor cleanliness of a world class lambic but is quite tasty and would be good for blending.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 2nd annual Vancouver Caskival. Deep hazy red-purple beer. Low carbonation. Nice tart aroma. Fairly acetic but still has a crisp lactic character as well. A touch of funk, but barnyard character is still a bit restrained. Light sweet cassis fruitiness. Flavour is tart and crisp. Nice and refreshing.
