My bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel. Pours a murky orange-peach with an average size diminishing white head. Aroma is sour and tart with funk, citrus and light spices. Flavour is also big-time sour and tart and I love it. Medium bodied. Fantastic stuff.

Bottle sampled at Sour Fest, poured a golden color, aromas of funkky citrus, oak, light pine, and some sour cherries. Flavors follow suit, intersting beer that I would drink again.

De Ranke... (non smetterò mai di dirlo!!) è un grandissimo birrificio. Aroma classico acidulo e a tratti acetico, caratterizzato comunque da una gradevole freschezza ( differente per intenderci dall’odore di sudore di cane delle Cantillon). Al palato si rinnova l’acidità e la nota acetica. Gusto tipo mele acerbe di montagna con un finale secco e pulito. Mediamente carbonata. Grande " birra " acida.

bartlebier (4013) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2012
World class sour ale with exotic lambic infusions: dry, with overwhelming grapefruit and citrus zest tartness upfront. Full taste with a well-balanced sourness-bitterness and some malty sweetness to back that up. Cloudy appearance, nice full & fuzzy mouthfeel. Initially tried this along with grilled porkchops, but the beer soon demanded center stage on the taste buds. Great for aperitif or with dessert - sumptiously unsuited as meal accompaniment!

- vintage unknown

A - dark golden color. 1 finger tight bubbles but not creamy. White. Beer is SRM of 9. Cloudy and hazy.

S - acidic vinegar Scent. Not crazy. Mild vinegar. Pine and apples. Slight bread scent and orange zest. Almonds? Maybe. Pineapple.

T - Wow. Huge tropical fruits. Raspberries and pineapples. Apple? Maybe. Pears and slight vinegar. Mild vinegar. Green grapes. Funk from the barnyard. Mild mustiness

M - 80% carbonation. Medium body for a geuze. Insanely green grape skin finish. So freaking dry and tart.

O - 94/100. It’s so damn tasty. No idea the vintage. No idea the origin or how well it was cellared. It’s great but idk. I’d love to have this every day. But. It’s standard. I mean it’s great but it’s so drinkable but my taste buds aren’t exploding. It’s great but standard. Hard to explain.

Bart (2937) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2012
75cl bottle tasting with Wim and Yves. Darker blond coloured beer with some slight hazy touches. Almost no carbonation and a small white head. Rather special, sour earthy and grainy hinted aroma. Full palate. Finish is sour bitter balanced with again some grainy sour hints. Nice alternative brew.
