Bottles shared at Sovereign on their second night of Feb 5th and again on Zwanze Day 2016 (thanks Huhzubendah for the latter!). Cloudy red with a hint of head. Awesome rich and funky barnyard and berry fruit on the nose, taste follows with funk and brite berries, yeast, wood. Along with FouFoune, best lambic aroma I have experienced. Awesome.

Sample @ SBWF. Aroma is just amazing with notes of strawberries, funk, mushrooms and chewing gum! Wow! Taste is equally drinkable and complex. Not too fruity, but fruity enough. Unique even for a 3F beer. This is close to a perfect 5!

jc1762 (964) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Bottle into a wineglass showing mildly tranlucent light cherry red with no head. The nose shows a vegetal tomato forwardness with light tart notes. The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of vegetal tomato show up immediately with light cherries on the fringes. Moderate tartness throughout and subtle cherries on the linger.

tmrmwel (1867) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle, enjoyed one year after bottling date. Pours hazy dark red, with a big creamy, off white head receding to finger thickness. Aroma is nice raspberries, musty notes of forest berries and earthy notes, as well as farmhouse, shrubbery and bretty notes. Medium body, with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is tart with raspberries and musty fruits, farmhouse, hay and wooden barrels, as well as nice bretty notes. Lingering, dry finish.

Maakun (4226) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro! Deep bright red with short lasting dark pink head. Looks great! Lots of cherries, red berries, raspberries, funk, hay, mineral, green apples. Its nice and juicy up front, medium funk, but the green apple and even some lemon later in the mouth are quite present and overpower the red fruits a bit. Some cobwebs and mineral funk in the finish. Almost medium sour and light bitter, with dry almost mineral finish. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Very very good!

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2016 Shared by me at Maakun back from US tasting. Vintage 2015, picked up in Beersel. Hazy red with minimal bubbly ring head. Sweet and sour cherries, brier, cobweb, cherry stones, light metallic note. Subtle sourness in rich sweet fruity base. Medium body, quite dense and juicy, big minerallike note in aroma and texture. Dry and fruity.

Bottleshare. 2015 edition - Loads of raspberry on the aroma, slight strawberry and red berries. Vanilla and oak. The taste has tons of raspberries, vanilla and syrup. Quite good.
