Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Sampled at Beerhawks Beer Gods in the Boro, aka 1000 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, By God Beer God Gathering, BG1K Tasting. My dear god. This is the type of lambic that turns me off entirely. Pinkish red pour with brilliant white head is extremely appealing, but that is quickly followed by the aroma of smelly butt cheese. Way to tart and not even fun to try. But maybe ill get into this style eventually...

trapez (1563) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - APR 24, 2009
Bottle. Sour and yeast aroma with plenty of grapes and some wood. Nice unclear red colour with small white head. Sour and fruity flavour. Both appearance and flavour is close to rhubarb. Prickly nose.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2010 Rating 1002, shared with funkybrewster and xnoxhatex. 2005 cork. Pours a murky pinkish orange brown with a fine white froth. Super funky barnyard aroma, very tart and nostril stinging, lightly cheesy, hint of berries, dusty yeasty funk. Fantastic tart super tangy quite sour funky lambic and old wine flavor, pretty amazing, I really enjoy this, moldy funky berries, just a hint of vinegar, fantastic woodiness towards finish, with huge lingering slightly tannic crusty wine aftertaste. Just a tad soapy. Medium bodied, a hint of creaminess, super fine sharp carbonation. I love it. Not as clean as most lambics but has great character. 9.4.9.4.18 . . . . . . . . . [several ratings from draft... damn this is good!]

Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - APR 7, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2010 Pours cloudy purple red. Smells of very tart grape. Taste is sour grape with a burning sour finish. This is a great curveball when had with other beers in a tasting.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2009
BeerHawks Beer Gods in the Boro, aka 1000 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, By God Beer God Gathering, BG1K Tasting. Sample from a bottle thanks to BeerHawk. Puplish plum red with a quick white ring. Aroma is huge oak, wooden, funky lambic. Lovely with a touch of light wine grapes. Taste is more lambic acidity, oak, vinegar with just a touch of burgundy grapes.

JohnnyJ (5545) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 4, 2009
Bottle at the Belgian Beer Fest 09. I tried this right after the Vigneronne. I liked this one much better. Bright red/purple color. Very sour, cherries, grape, oak, funkiness, berry, wild yeast, and bread. Some wine notes. Complex, this was excellent.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Draft at Memphis tap room. Pours a maroon body with a thin lacing. Very nice vinous tannic character, lightly woody with a balsamic vinegar body. Tart dry fruity and mildly funky. Awesome beer! I enjoyed this significantly more than from a bottle.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle from Butters. Pours an opaque brown body with hints of purple. Smells of rubber, sourness, and some red wine notes. Sour flavor with a note of wine to it. Horrible. For what it is, it is good.
