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 didn’t 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 - there’s light acetic, moving to that mild funky note I’ve come to expect. The flavor profile is initial sweet tart here - it’s bittering, blackberry jam, lemon citrus, light acetic - It’s a somewhat subdued upland lambic, in comparison to some that I’ve already had

At Justin’s house warming party. Pours almond rose florescent with no head. Aroma is fantastic, full cherry Rasperry blackberry sourness. Taste is medium to heavy acidity, blackberries, musky tart, a little one-noted. I like it.

750 ml bottle. Pours a beautiful purple with a thin pink head that fades, leaving no lacing. Aroma is blackberries upfront with muted funk complexity. Flavor is mildly tart blackberries, amazing. Overall mild, with more tartness than sweet. Delicious. Notes from 1/23/10 (Geist Dark Lord Tasting).
