0,375l bottle at Himmeriget shared by me. Vintage 2015. bourdeaux like color, small pink head. smells cheesy, blueberries, grassy, funk, berry notes, green apples. very nice smell. Medium Body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of grass, funk, some berry notes, green apples, spices, peppery. finishes medium sour with notes of funk, grass and peppery notes. very nice one, could use a bit more fruit notes, but overall very nice stuff.

Cunningham (8077) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2017
Deep blue amber color with a pink ish head. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a mellow carbonation level. Balanced sweetness and a fine acidity. Dry ending. Lasting flavor with blueberries, wood, yeast and fruity notes. Nice tasty stuff.
Tried 2010, 2011 and 2017 version. All of them were a bit different. Also varied if you got some of the bottom sediments in the glass. Two different bottles were also different.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2017 Kermis the cellar digger just levelled up! Thanks for sharing. A bottle labeled "16". Hazy dark purple with light pink head. Big sweet and sour berries, similar to (but apparently not the same as) bluberries, hay, grapes, grape most, big funk. Grape stone bitter. Moderate sweet and sour and bitter. Over medium body, very very juicy, soft carbonation, lovely stuff.

Svartvit (628) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle shared by kermis, 2015 vintage, thanks! Pours a nice dark red with a pinkish head. Heavy on the berries but also very funky, more than I remember from previous occasion. Really deep, intense funk with a nice depth to it. Berry sweetness. Over medium sour, medium sweet. Medium body & carbonation.

Maakun (5755) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle shared massive thanks to kermis!! Deep purple with light purple head. Lots of hay, funk and horse on the nose when smelled directly from the glass, but there’s also strong bilberries from a bit further away. Taste has loads of Cantillon funk and horse, soft fruits, hay, light minerals. The berries are a bit in the background, with mostly berry skins coming to the foreground. Medium sour, light sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Very good, though not as fruity as I expected.

4.2
mariuspoenari (2724) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle shared. Hazy dark ruby pour with a pink head. Notes of blueberries, forest fruit, dark cherries, a lot of funk, minerals. Quite tart, slightly mouth-puckering but pretty nicely balanced by sweet and mineral notes.
