4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2013 75cl bottle at home. Bought at íGeersí.
Appearance: little to no head, dark red beer.
Nose: sour, tart, red fruits, some ícoulisí even, rather fruity in general but with a good sour nose to balance.
Taste: a long lasting sourness, though combined with fruity notes and quite some alcohol noticeable. The beer is somewhat sticky around your mouth and reminded me of a ícoulisí in a way.
Altogether, amazing beer, very comparable to a Rodenbach Vintage!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
9/V/13 - 75cl bottle from Healthy Spirits (SF, CA) @ Klaasí place - BB: n/a (2013-450) Thanks to Mathieu P. for bringing over the bottle!
Note: just a few weeks/months after I had received this bottle, I noticed my local beer shop (Geers) was selling this. What are the odds? :p
Clear red brown beer, small beige to brown head, unstable, dissipates immediately. Aroma: sour, red berries, lactobacillus, bit woody. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish start, red berries, woody, sour green apples, bit lemony. Aftertaste: sour, lots of green apples, some vinegar, lemony, bitter grape skin (tannins?), woody, leather. Nice, but I wouldnít make this a 98 on RB. I guess Americans are just crazy about anything sour, right?

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Glowing copper red body, tiny head. Sour funk, fermenting fruits, rough. Fairly sour yet fruity taste. Well aged, but the sourness dominates and the malts can only barely keep up. Would have liked a bigger body on this one. (ZeeBra)
