ShivanDragon (6884) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2020
UPDATED: APR 2, 2020 Prima zachte en volle tonen van rise druiven en eikenhout, afdronk is niet te metalig, maar ook weer niet zo gebalanceerd als een fou, prima

creppyiceman (3313) - Cracow, POLAND - FEB 9, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2020 ( bottle) Aroma: wood, grapes, horse blanket, Taste: semi-sweet, quite sour, flavour of grapes, vinegar, wood, wine funk, dry finish. Palate: medium body, medium carbonation. Overall: Very wine-like, tart and dry. Yummy!

snowcrash000 (1353) - Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2020 Pours a clear, deep, dark ruby red coloration with a small, fizzy head that fades to a thin ring around the glass almost instantly, with very slightly visible carbonation. Smell is quite dominated by a lovely tart red grape aroma, with milder notes of blue cheese funk and musty oak, as well as just a hint of red berries and mild tannins. Taste is an excellent balance of quite vibrant, slightly tart red grapes, some light blue cheese funk and a distinct, mildly tannic, musty oak presence, as well as subtle hints of red berries, lemon peel and balsamic vinegar. Finishes quite dry, with a light tartness and some red grapes and musty oak lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth, effervescent mouthfeel with a medium body and medium/strong carbonation. While the sour and funky notes are a lot more subtle here than I expected, this really makes up for that with an absolutely sublime balance of vibrant fruit character, strong oak presence and funky highlights, while also displaying quite a dry body rounded out by a light sweetness. The red grape and berry notes, as well as mildly tannic, musty oak lends a certain vinous quality to this that is quite pleasant and also enrichens this with a certain depth, while still remaining quite refreshing and easily drinkable at the same time. A superb Lambic overall, that is perhaps not quite as rich and complex as other examples of the style, but makes up for that with a subtle, nuanced balance that is absolutely sublime.

josanguapo (3852) - SPAIN - DEC 1, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2019 De Tercertiempocervezas. Version 2018. En copa Teku. Viendo El Hombre en el Castillo 2x01-02. Con turron suchard y galletas tostarica. Una acidez mas comedida y soportable que en otras cantillon pero no dice mucho, apenas tiene interes. Las uvas no se notan casi nada

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2019 Bottle Share @ Browariat, Katowice (12.10.2019) Saint Lamvinus 2017. Jak to powiedział Michał B. Młode, czerwone wino.Smaczne,owocowe,winne,lekka wanilia, trochę stajni,skóry. Wytrawne na finiszu. Nigdy nie przypuszczałem, że Vig 2017 będzie mi bardziej smakował, niż St Lam 2017 ;)
