Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Cloudy amber color with red shades; medium sized compact head. The style is there; this year the aroma has more bread and feety impression (along with the usual malt, wood, fruit, light acetone), sweetish. Good body structure; semi-sweet malt flavor, with medium-sharp acidity, and some acetone; good fruity level; solid and complex; it has more sediment than the previous years.
Excellent as usual; the aroma is more elegant than the flavor.
750 ml green bottle, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 11%. Beautiful reddish brown colour, small off-white head. Strong aroma of red wine vinegar and oak. Sweet and sour flavour, loads of red wine vinegar, also oak. Too sweet and sour for me. Not my cup of tea at all. Waste of money. Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2017
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Original, Brussels, 20 May 2017) Dark red colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, sourish nose with red fruit, balsamic vinegar, oak wood and caramel. Fruity, tart taste with notes of red fruit, sour cherries, almonds, caramel, balsamic vinegar and a tart finish with a light sweetness. Low bitterness. Better balanced and with a milder acidity than the 2014 sampled a couple of days earlier. Really tasty and in excellent balance, considering its strength. Excellent beer. tmrmwel (2089) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2016

Bottle: Poured brown with no head. Aroma tart and funky. Taste tartly sour and acidic fruit. HippieFee (446) - - NOV 8, 2016
Large Format - Very rich red/brown color and very cloudy as well. Some yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Very complex flavors going on. Get hints of caramel and cherry. Only a mild tartness on this beer but that could be because of the age. I have had some of the other years and this is always a great beer.
