philus (46) - Bazel, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle @ home. Very unstable foam, disappears immediately. Aroma is intense sour, citrus. Taste is brett, with subtle sourness. Not as sour as you would expect. Ok beer, but a bit overhyped imo.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong funk, cheese, brett, stone fruit. Thin mouth, nice funk, tart fruit, brett, oak, very nice.

wedgie9 (2631) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Tasted in July of 2013 from a 750mL bottle with the Nashville crew, big thanks to Curtis for sharing. Pours hazy yellow with a thick white head that leaves average, thin lace. The nose is nicely sour lemon with some vanilla bourbon, and a whole bunch of funk that ranges from vegetal to spicy. The flavor is not terribly sour, with some tartness, lots of funk and bourbon barrel melding nicely. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long, very funky finish.

teorn88 (6453) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
75cl bottle from trade. It pours an almost clean pale golden color with a large white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is funky and sour, lambic-like. Notes of dusty basement, lemon juice, citrus peel, big funk and brett, light notes of whisky, vanilla, booze. Taste is medium acidic and light bitter with notes of citrus juice, grapefruit, Belgian yeast, alcohol, vanilla and caramel. Finishes a bit hot, with drying eatery yeast. Overall, delicious and very close to BA lambic

Countbeer (6169) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized lively creamy head. Aroma is that of a complex candy, crisp and deliously balanced: brett, lemon, cream, light whiskey, wood, nettle, grapes/berries, etc etc, awesome aroma! Flavours of brett, wood, apples, light bitter, lighter tart, fruit, whiskey, malts, whiskey grains, cake, some lemon, some light light bittery tones... Delicious! Aftertaste is a mix of apples, grass, some malts, some whiskey, berries/grapes, grainy wood, light bitter and lighter tart. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium to bit more fuller bodied and a creamy texture. Amazingly well balanced. Beautiful beer in every way!

Bottle from De Molen, shared with Hans. Blond colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Aroma of citrus with hints of vanilla and spices. Little bit sweet, bit sour. Ok beer but not the best from De Struise. Bit thin body.
