Bottled at Pressklubben, Stockholm. Hazy amber, minimal head. Juicy concentrated aroma of horseblanket, vinegar and raisins. Acidic with a slight sweetish overlay. Soft and rounded with lots of juicy citrus. Above medium bodied with a slight, mild alcohol warmth. The richness and complexity is put even more on open display by the slighy sweetness and warmth. The downside is that is a bigger, slightly less drinkable beer, indeed more suitable for winter temperatures. cucuma (89) - kontich, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2011
This is a wow bottle!
Such a nice palet, a relative strong beer.
like the 0,75l bottle anyway, you can put this one between X-mas beers!
A wintergeuze with floral, alcohol, woody, and of course sourish accent Lubiere (14126) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2011
A hazy dirty dark lambic with a thin white head. In aroma, a superb lactic acid with epsom salts, horseblanket, so classic, turned to 11. In mouth, a nice smooth sourish malt, light vinegar, refreshing and smooth, I really enjoyed this one. Shared with Orlando crew, Jan 6 2011.

750 cc bottle from a Belgian Christmas Elf. Pours turbid ruddy Carolina mud/clay color with minimal off-white head. Nose is sour mashy gueuezy fruit, yeasty, lactic. Tastes tart, rich, complex as hell, very fruity, with a lot of lactic acidity. Smooths out as it warms, retaining the cobwebby dank ester quality. Very nice. nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2011
Rating #1111 -- two elevens are better than one! Bottle from my secret santa -- many thanks for this rarity!! Pour a reddish/orange hue with a lasting off-white head. Smells predominantly of vinegar and dried orange peel. Tastes of each with added notes of sweet malt and candied peaches. Harmonious and delicious.

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is funky and sweet and lends a strong component of toasted oak flanked by a minor note of bourbon. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is not all that similar to the nose – funky, fruity and pretty darned sour. Sweetness is low. Finishes tart, astringent and bone-dry. This bottle of world class beer was very generously shared by Beerlando! cgarvieuk (25391) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2011
