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...

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at epic share. Small snifter pour was reddish purple with a fuchsia head. Aroma is tar blackberries, some wooded oak, slight acetic acid, and earthiness. The taste is first the bold tart blackberries followed by some wood and acedic acids. Not overly sour but a pucker tartness for sure. Blackberries are rather a dry fruit anyway so the finish is certainly dry and delicious. Iím a sucker for blackberries anyway. Very good.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle bottled on November 20, 2015 corked and capped from shrubber85 poured into a glass. Translucent red with small reddish white head. Aroma is light blackberry, medium body, medium carbonation, and thick small-bubble lacing. Taste is tart, oak, some vinegar, and light blackberry. Good lambic, but I prefer their persimmon.

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.
