mrjez (575) - Osaka, JAPAN - APR 27, 2017
375ml bottle. A gorgeous looking beer, clear amber-gold, creamy off-white foam head, bubbles shooting up. Moderate aroma, barnyard hay, lemon, freshly cut flowers, a little lactic acid. Crisp sour taste, citrus, white wine grape, yoghurt. Funky notes and cloudiness in the last 50ml pour. Nice fizz up front, sour and tart notes spread over the palate, medium body, ends bone dry. Lovely balance.

Sudz4Dayz (130) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
375ml bottle obtained in a trade. Pours golden copper. Slight haze with a thick, frothy off white head. Long lasting leaving thick lacing. Fully carbonated. Smells oaky, distinct lambic funk profile, fruity, some lemon zest and citrus aroma. Smooth, lemony, citrus lambic funk with a slight bitter, dry finish. Very tasty with a great oak backbone. Nice smooth, crisp mouthfeel. Full aftertaste with a perfect carbonation. Just what I was looking for in this bottle. Nothing crazy but perfect the way it is.

cmacklin (1069) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2017
750ml bottle. As 100% Lambic Bio. (5.5% ABV) Pours a hazy orange with a medium, short lived, fizzy, white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma of barnyard, leather, lemon, green apple, apricot, orange and vinegar. Sweet fruity flavour of lemon, grapefruit, lime, orange, apricot, green apple, vinegar and light brett with a dry, tart, bitter, champagne-like finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Very nice, has some complexity.

AaronIPAAPA (93) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 17, 2017
Żłciutkie, klarowne, piana szybko opada. W aromacie jest dosyć mało brettw. w smaku głwnie kwasność i taniniczność, mało skry. jak na gueuze, to jest bardzo gładko i grzecznie. Ocena na podstawie notatek pisanych przed założeniem konta na RB.

Stajnia, agrest, biała porzeczka, trochę kwaśnych jabłek, w smaku świetnie zbalansowane, nisko-średnia kwaśność.

Tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa, Rome-Italy. Orange bright and a bit hazy color, white foam with medium retention. Nose: yellow fruit, soft and smooth lemon skin, sour hints. Elegant aroma. Mouth: refreshing, smooth grapefruit, much grapefruit and tons of fruit.

beton (340) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Zapach umiarkowanie kwaśny, dziki, skra, cytryna, kwaśne jabłko, kolendra, zioła i kwiaty, dosyć mineralny. W smaku dosyć jest kwaśne, bardziej dzikie, orzeźwiające z zaznaczoną średnią w stronę delikatnej, goryczką. Słodycz kojarząca się z węgierskim Tokajem, garść cytryn, niuansy kwiatowe, funky.

Pours clear golden with no head. Spiky, sour citrus aroma. Flavour is dominated by tart sourness... light funk, green apple... dry finish. Not really a style I enjoy, but this was very nice.
