UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 Rating #900! and popping the cork on #69 of RBs 70 beer styles. 750 ml, "Bottled 2005." Well, the only common beer with a "900" in its name is Camo 900, so lets do this instead. Besides, its symmetry: my first rating was Capitol 1900.
Pours light yellowish brown, looking a bit like apple juice. No real head, but some pinprick bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Smell is pretty nice. I expected lots of sourness, but more cidery notes with a bit of wood. But taste is where the sourness comes in. Real brett sourness, no acid used here. Somehow a bit rubbery, then more of the crabapple cider. What else? Some butterscotch, mown hay thats actually tripping my allergies. Yep, there are those stale hops, and a big barnyard character. Reminds me of that Berliner Weisse toward the end.So what do I compare this to, if its likely the only unblended lambic Ill find outside of Belgium? Its certainly a pleasure to have discovered and enjoyed this puzzle, so Ill count my experience as part of the rating.

Wytrawne, ziołowe, mokra skra, zagroda, lekki funk, lekko do umiarkowanie agrestowe. lekka do umiarkowanej goryczka - długo utrzymująca się. Umiarkowanie kwaśne, ściągające, agrest, cytryna i grejfrut. Fajne klasyczne, ziołowe z wyraźnie zaznaczoną goryczką.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy goldenalmost no head. Aroma: apple peals, weak cow shit, oak, vinegar, white vine notes. Taste: at first sweetish and then coming sourness and acidity, berries, white vine vinegar, raw apples, hay, sulphur burning tongue. That lambic plays in your mouth. Nice. Sour finish.

Consumed for Drink It Now day, hosted by GenDV138. Poured a hazy, orange color with a small white head. Aroma was light funky, floral notes. Lots of flowers, light acid. Lemon juice notes. Pretty dry. Not as delicate as I expected it to be.

Aroma and taste doesnt last that long and they texture is a bit watery. Clear and pale without much foam. Medium sourness. Soft carbonation and a bit watery texture. Good but not impressive.

Ritzn (1107) - GERMANY - DEC 14, 2016
Hazy golden without head. Aroma is red berries, sour stuff, oregano, cucumber. Taste is just sour berries and some raspberry pip (maybe ash) bitterness, some fusels in the back and syrupy and chalky at the same time. Not exactly easy to drink and no carbonation. Not bad. Version from 2002 7-4-5-3-11: Much darker. Aroma is much more wood and phenols, some more smoke. Taste is so much more bitter and more ash. Almost undrinkable. Phew. Version from 1984: 8-4-7-3-15 Clear and even darker. Smooth berries and no hints of ash and smoke. Actually this is just the smooth version of the first one.

Bottle, from brewery. Pours orange, juice-like, no head. Aroma is sour with plenty of barnyard. Taste is a strong barnyard, not much acidity or sour. Slight bile, more barnyard. Light, no carbonation.
