fonefan (51126) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 4, 2008
Bottle. Clear medium orange color with a small, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is light adcidic - sour, moderate wood and oak, apricot - tropic fruits. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate acidic with a average duration. (A bit boring and quite one dimensional) Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat. (070308)

yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2007
37.5 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a minimal diminished white head. Aroma holds a mild barnyard, slight yeasty and quite mellow aroma, nothing sharp. Flavour is quite clean, acidic with a mellow citric note. Ends with a nice woody note. Very soft brew, smooth and pleasant - perhaps also a bit too lazy.

Bottled. A dark golden beer with no head. The aroma has notes of lemons, brettanomyces, and funk. The flavor is sweet and sour with notes of grapes, lemons, brettanomyces, and wood, leading to a tart finish.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 24, 2008
Bottled (thanks papsoe!). Golden colour, basically no head. After yeast goes in hazy dark golden/nutbrown colour. Aroma is barnyard, very much sourness as well as some wooden notes. Flavour is dry sour fruity and woodenness along with some mild grass and even a bit vanillaish notes. Some slight acidic sourness stays in the aftertaste. Very nice. Gets more barnyardy and earthy after the yeast is poured in, which also takes away some of the sharp sourness. I like this one better with the yeast in. Numbers for rating are given after yeast is in. Without yeast about 3.7.

Travlr (26130) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2009 Bottle dated 17 02 2006, consumed 7/2009. Cloudy light amber with not one single bubble. Aroma of vinegar and citrus. Amazingly sour and complex taste with oak and grapefruit. Fantastic.

3.7
omhper (25750) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2008
UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 Bottled, thanks ante! Cloudy pale golden, no head. Wonderful aroma of cobweb and barnyard. Sweeter than exoected, yet dry of course. nearly no carbonation. Medium bodied with a citric edge. Creamy malt together with stale grassy hops and barnyard. Very good, but I lack some complexity and acidity compared to the very best bottles I had from 3 Fonteinen.

Lemony lambic that is sharp but not wincingly so! Typical dry winey finish. Drinkable.
