Opened in celebration of the 2012 Presidential Election, November 6 with my wonderful wife. Ive been hanging on to this bottle for roughly 3 years now. 2007 vintage is marked on the bottle. Cork comes out with a faint pop, pours a hazy golden cherry color with fine carbonation and a thin ring of head. Immediate aroma of acetic acid, funky cheese and sour cherry. The power of the aroma is nearly overwhelming. Barnyard and must is all over the nose. I cant believe how tart this is even with the age. The flavor is less intense than the aroma, with a dry sweet blend of cherry and dried grass. Flavor profile transitions from sweet to bitter cheese and yeasty biscuit, but incredibly complex. Undertones of old oak wood, wheat, peppercorn, rosemary and lemon zest. The finish is light and dry with a tingly carbonation sting on the palate. Overall a delightful drinking experience, the unbalanced aroma dinged it in my book, but the complexity gives it points. Well worth the wait, now we’ll have to see what the bugs in this beer do to my bowels tomorrow morning...

Pours a bright ruby red with a pinkish off white head. The aroma is just out of this world fruity with waves of raspberry and cherry pounding your nostrils. At the same time typical 3F citrus sharpness, no vinegar but just so much fruit. The taste is super intense with the ultra high citrus sharpness along with the dense fruity taste. Pleasant carbonation and a light to medium mouthfeel. Looong citrussy and jammy aftertaste. So good.

Cunningham (7952) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2017
Clear deep red color with a pink head. Looks good, but the head gives in a bit to fast. Solid raspberry aroma. Medium body and a fine carbonation level. Pleasant acidity and a fine sour level. Dry ending. Lasting fine flavor with raspberries, oak and cherries.
[Bottle at The Blåbær Lambik 2017 Release queue outside Himmeriget in Copenhagen, Denmark]

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear garnet red with light head. Aromas of black cherries and jammy metallic raspberries. Flavors of jammy raspberries and mineral water, with a touch of wheat and tart cherries. Excellent.

Garrold (5265) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2017
Bottle, shared at Little Leeds Beer House. The fancy new bottle. Dusky, dark pink. No head. Nose has cherry stone. Soft funk. Damp grain. Ripe cherry juice. Hint of lemon. Some sweet oak. Tadte is a perfect balance of cherry sour and oak sweet. It’s young, yes, but it’s so clean as a result. Bright and clean mouthfeel. Light cherry sourness to finish. Great stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2017 Cherries and stable are very dominant when you smell it. It is a suprisingly drinkable and enjoyable beer ... very easy to drink, not too acidic, not difficult in the texture. Lives up to the hype.

Kapsel (324) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 13, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2017 (2015) Dużo malin, wiśni, pestkowe akcenty, trochę wiejskich klimatów, lekka skóra. Świetne piwo!

2015 bottle pour at Hops & Pie, 3 oz. Deep reddish and light hazy appearance with a pinkish white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, toasted oak, raspberries, sour cherries, earth and light grains. Similar flavor, sweet, tart, fruity, funky, earthy and mildly sour. Light to medium body with a soft feel and a light dry, woody finish. A little sweeter and less tart than I anticipated, but still excellent.

Vintage ’13 partagée avec les potes.Belle robe bien opaque. Dans mon verre, de la confiture de fruits bien sucrée, bien crémeuse. Les premières arômes me sont difficiles. Il faut dire que la bouteille est froide. Une importante cerise noire, macérée dans un sirop me monte au nez, ainsi que d’étranges arômes de plastique te de vernis. C’est très intense. J’ai besoin de temps, elle aussi Laissons-nous le temps de nous apprivoiser. En nous réchauffant et en négociant de bonne foi, nous parvenons petit à petit à une entente. Le cerise s’estompe tranquillement, le plastique a disparu (sans doute simplement dissout dans cette acidité peu discrète) et la framboise prend son envol. du pépin de framboise, bien plus que de la chair. C’est capiteux et très tannique, sans être vineux. L’amertume des pépins de fruits apporte une astringence cohérente avec le PH très bas de cette bière agressive. Longue en bouche, très pétillante, acide et sucrée, une 750ml se partage parfaitement entre 5 palais robustes.
