2009 vinage shared by Justin at the 6/27 Del Mar Doom. Hmmmm, well, to start ... this thing blew up after opening. Gusher x 10. A gorgeous looking beer (I see this word a lot in its reviews, but it’s the most fitting) ... but the flavor is not nearly what I was expecting. I couldn’t pick out too much blueberry (very faint), nor much funk to speak of. This actually fairly easy to drink w/ a quickly fading sour finish. Wasn’t stomach churning by any means. Are the ratings rarity driven? Is the ’09 batch not up to par? Granted, by rating will just about match the avg, but I guess I was expecting more? Officially a let down and not worth the hassle of obtaining. Thanks bro!
Pours a reddish purple with a pinkish lacing. Aroma is blueberry skins and vinegar moderately sour. Incredible ALIBALI (1957) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2017

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 (516) - 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.

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. mariuspoenari (2622) - 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. witt (32) - Elsinore, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2017
Pours beautiful dark ruby color, almost no head.
Aroma is moderate sour, red fruits, hay, barn, funky, lots of blueberries in the finish.
Very drinkable. Heather_B (254) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Incredible. Smells like dark fruits and beautiful lambic mold. Looks ruby red with a small pink head. Mouthfeel is great - carbonated but not overly so. Flavor is straight blueberry juice. Garrold (5170) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle. Himmeriget, Copenhagen. 2016 version. Darkest pink. Soft haze. Pale pink, foamy head settles to a thin ring. Nose has that unmistakable Cantillon cobweb fustiness. Soft, tangy, ripe red fruit. Some vanilla oak. Some new leather. Taste is dry and tart, with a light, berry sweetness. Mouthfeel is cleansing, with some acidity. Finishes dry and slightly acidic. Hint of berry sweetness hangs in until the close.
