Tide (7703) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2020 Bottle. Copper color, white head. Sour taste with citrus, earthy notes, oak, sour apple, cognac, white currants and grass. Sour finish with citrus, oak, cognac, white currant, grass, sour apple and grass. Exquisite lambic. Boutip (7844) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2019 Bottle: Poured a clear golden color lambic with a fairly large white head. Aroma of funky barn yard notes with light green apple notes and oak is really enjoyable. Taste is also a mix of funky barnyard notes, light oak and some green apple notes, dust and dry Brett notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation considering the bottle has been aged a few years. Solid gueuze with great level of complexity. jc1762 (2298) - JAPAN - AUG 5, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2019 Thanks Owen for the bottle! Teku showing deep amber b with a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows moderately intense sweet round notes of must, brett, and syrup.
The palate is well carbonated and light bodied with sparkling acidity throughout. Moderately tart with clean notes of caramel, brett, hay, and barndoor. Tartness rounds off on the finish. Perfect lambic. Grumbo (11597) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2018
28/7/2018. Bottle at Højbjerg tasting. Pours with a lovely aromatic fragrance, and a cloudy golden amber with a large foamy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, grape, citrus, apples, wine, banana and herbs. Light sweetness, moderate bitterness, medium sour and a little salty. Moderate body, slight oily texture, average carbonation. Very good. Bamsen78 (7014) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2018

Bottle at Ryan's June 2018 tasting - thanks for this one. Pours a deep, golden orange body with thick white head and lace. Nose is strong oak, dusty basement, funky wood and tart lemon. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely balanced between a strong oak character and funky, earthy fruit; additional notes of tart lemons, salt, stone fruit, aged gouda and funk character. beerplace (5329) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2018
750ml bottle at Kump’s during the Pink session. Bottled on 2011-02.17. Pours an almost clear golden with a white head. Aroma is super funky with lots of horse blanket notes and some petrol. Similar taste. This one has too much of horse blanket notes for my taste. Still good, though. Hoprider (1125) - DENMARK - MAY 14, 2018
Bottle @himmeriget split 2 ways. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a fairly frothy white foam. Aromas of tart apples, funky earthy notes and sharp acidity. Taste has big apple again, only a faint stone fruit presence, big acidity, bretty mineral notes. Aftertaste is dry with brett notes but the high sourness acts as counterweight, bringing forth a sense of complexity that I also found in A&G. Even at 10+ years this is alive and kicking. I suspect this will continue to drink wonderfully well into the future. Palme (5033) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2018
0.75l corked bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. So been looking forward to this one, so I'm probably a tad impartial. The cork definitely wants up and out! It has a big and almost foamy about white really lacing head. The color on this is goldenish and it had a good cloudiness. Lots of complex aromas here. Sour apples, cork. Could go on but just want to taste. An amazing complex sourness. Lovely. Oh, yeah. This is the shiat. Hard to describe how tasty and complex this actually is. Dandelions, there's wood, lots of fresh sorrel. Superbly finished by a strong refreshing bitterness. Just lovely lovely lovely. It seriously doesn't get much better than this. Happy all the way! 18.07.2015
