stouby (4537) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle at home, thanks Carsten. Hazy golden with an off-white head, quickly gone. Aroma heavy of Bret and fruity Flemish ale. Flavor medium+ sour, light sweet. Medium body. Fantastic start of the weekend.

cnardi (24) - ITALY - DEC 29, 2011
Bello il colore, giallo oro carico, con una schiuma bianca e abbastanza persistente. Gli aromi sembrano quelli tipici di un lambic. All’assaggio invece risulta ben più "morbida". Nel finale lascia un piacevolissimo amaro. Ottima.

CamdenD (1195) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 25, 2011
This is one of the finest beers I’ve tasted. A bit of a mild sour due to the sweetening from the lambic (amazing how a lambic can sweeten, but it seems to in this). Pours beautifully with little head. Balanced and bitter. Great great beer.

nearbeer (5085) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 24, 2011
750 ml. Opaque orange-copper with a lasting film of foam. Aroma of sour apple, sour grape, lemon, earthy caramel, woody pith and white wine. Flavor is tart grape, musk, apple, apple pith, light vinegar, lemon and a hint of caramel. Light-medium body is watery, dry and has low-medium carbonation.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 24, 2011
750ml courtesy of tytoanderso, Thanks Ty! . Pours clear medium gold with 2 finger off-white head. Nose is sour malt, gueuzy citrus fruit, funk, earthy root cellar notes. Tastes tart, citric, with some funk matched by earthy notes. Stays tart, with a medium slightly prickly mouthfeel.

Defreni (3081) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2011
Flaske: Orange klar øl med et lille skumhoved. Dejlig let sur duft hvor der kan anes lidt hindbær og en smule fadlagring fra lambic. Smagen er igen let sur men på ingen måde overdreven. Der kan anes hindbær og en smule vanilie. Super øl.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2011
750 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy copper colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of sour fruits, apricot and some spices. Flavour of sour fruits especially grapefruit, dry hops, caramel and hay. Girardin is definitely present. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a dry, sour and hoppy finish. Nice and sour.

Suttree (6194) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Cloudy orange, thinnish, loose white head. Smells like basement, citrus, balsamic vinegar. Very dry. I get sour, of course, plus oak, some hops, some undefined hops. Very refreshing, very tasty. Plus the bottle with that snazzy wrapping paper, so it’s got that goin’ for it.
