4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled 5/15/14 from trade. Pours beautiful deep reddish purple with a pink fizzy head in my Cantillon glass. Awesome aroma of big lush blackberry, lots of vinegar and funk, oak, sour. Flavor is big fruity blackberries, sharp sourness, some vinegar notes, oak, dry but not super dry, definite jamminess here. Light to medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, juicy berries yet dry finish. Whoah. This is really excellent. Have heard it is overly sour but Iím not getting that at all. This is just right and on par with some of the best sours Iíve had, including fruited Cantillon.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 2008. Pours a clear reddish Orange body with a small fizzy head that vanished rather quickly. The nose is funky and tart, with some minima blackberry, I assume that it has faded a bit over the years. Nice light but bright acidity. The flavor is quite funky and acidic, with a fair amount of fruitiness actually. Tart and a bit bracing on the acidity on the finish. Light bodied and fizzy with a lingering finish. Still pretty decent stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a blue-purple with minimal head. Tart sour aroma with cheese and malt vinegar notes. Sour candy, blackberries, and tart fruit flavors. I didnít really pick up the blackberries until the beer warmed up. Once it warmed the blackberries really came through. Moderate carbonation. Medium body with a tart finish. Very good sour.

11/VII/14 - 75cl bottle @ Eerste "Er Klopt Iemand Op De Deur" Samson & Gert Bierproeving (aka Epic Beer Tasting III) - BB: n/a, bottled: 8/VII/13 (2014-793) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!
Cloudy reddish to amber beer, small light pink head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: yuck, sweaty stink feet, cheesy, bit fruity, lemony, pretty offensive. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty sour, earthy, tobacco, citric acidity, very puckering sourness, bit musty, cork, dusty. Aftertaste: very sour, lemony, cork, bit dusty, bit fruity. Taste is luckily better than the smell, but man, this is once more a US sour that I absolutely do not dig at all...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle; Pour is murky amber / purple with a fine bubbled white head here - it vanishes very quickly. A little disappointing. The nose is blackberry jam, tart lemon zest moving to light grass - thereís light acetic, moving to that mild funky note Iíve come to expect. The flavor profile is initial sweet tart here - itís bittering, blackberry jam, lemon citrus, light acetic - Itís a somewhat subdued upland lambic, in comparison to some that Iíve already had
