decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Gold pour with very little head. Aroma is sour apple cider and a hinto straw. Flavor is tart/bitter sour apple, some funk, some citrus, and a dry finish. Complex offering. Aggressive carbonation and light medium body.

Lovely red fruit aromas with nice funky scents coming through, light vinegar. Taste is amazingly full of red dark fruit, pleasantly sour with a distinctive pit bitterness and amazing fruity complexity. Very good beer.

Half pint from Moeder lambic. Notes of hey and horse blanket. Slightly sweet with notes of Meyer lemon and orange. Nice.

kaserov (737) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 11, 2017
Color naranja, opaco, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (burbujas enormes y poca retención; queda un velo blanco de espuma que no se disipa del todo). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa y algo viscosa. Aroma ácido (tira ligeramente a vinagre), especiado, con la madera muy presente. En boca es ácida desde un inicio (la acidez está increíblemente bien medida, en el punto exacto en que no se queda corta ni te hace fruncir el ceño o cerrar los ojos debido a su fuerza). Mucha madera, ligeros toques frutales, especias. Me cuesta creer que tanta gente esté diciendo que sabe a naranja y limón (entre otras cosas). Me sería imposible discernir hoy o dentro de ciento cincuenta años a qué frutas sabe. Pero aplaudo a quien lo consiga, aunque no considero que haya naranja o limón ni nada parecido. Final especiado y seco. No se puede hablar de amargor. Postgusto ácido suave y especiado. Muy buena.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. Dark coppery colour with no head. Fizzy. Smells great, I find myself really sticking my nose into the bottle just to get more of that aroma. In terms of taste, this definitely has the profile of a Belgian saison with all the peachy, funky, hay flavours going on, but this is definitely sour - I would say just slightly below being aggressively sour. But yeah, a real tartness which would make it a lovely summer beer, but the malt and the body is what makes it satisfying even on a cooler evening. Very nice beer. For those with a fine palate, this doesnt taste full-on Geuze, its kind of a nice medium.

rayaron (1828) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAY 15, 2017
Draught at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Hazy orange with white head. Aroma of brett, a bit lactic, wood and berries. Sour and bitterish flavor with lots of wood, minerals, unripe apricot, lemon and yogurt. Dry, medium-bodied.

Sour notes, cellar, funky, peach and apricot, golden/orange with a good white head, medium body, maybe not enough fizzy for me, taste is similar, very pleasant sour notes, woody, lemony...perfect beer with a little price.
