theisti (4088) - Kansas, USA - JUL 14, 2008
750 ml bottle picked up at Zipps in Minneapolis by my Dad, recommended by Tyler. Pour is hazy golden orange with a 1/2 inch white head. Decent lacing is left behind as the head retreats. Aroma is tart, sour and musty. Tartness is a lemon tartness. Sour is cherries, very fresh cherries. Taste is sour tart lemon, with cherries adding a nice acidic edge. Very big citrus rind in the finish. Woodiness and earthiness are present in the aftertaste. Not overpowering at all nicely blended and superbly balanced. Soft and delicate. The finish is clean and really delicate. This was certainly the beer of the day at the csbosox tasting. Thanks for recommending this one Tyler, it was great.

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.

anstei (2128) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 19, 2017
UPDATED: APR 19, 2017 Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours cloudy amber. Aroma is sweet prune, cherry, candy, sour barrels. Body is medium, quite tart and lightly sour, lively carbonation, quite some wood flavours towards the palate. That one is sour and lingering on stone fruit. Good!

Ysok02 (1450) - Mons, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2017
Robe dorée, fine mousse. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes sauvages, animales, des céréales, des fruits acidulés, une pointe balsamique, des levures. Bouche tout aussi impressionnante par sa tension et son équilibre, le fruit est délicat, la bulle est ciselée et la finale longue et digeste. Un monument d’équilibre et de classe.

minutemat (5255) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2017
75cl bottle, 3 year aged (2014). Pours a hazy amber, good off-white head. Aroma of soft funky fruity flora. Taste is perfectly crisp and well balanced with a sharp, tart lambic character and a zingy tang that lingers long on the finish. Soft fruity shades, prickly grapefruit and fresh summer meadow straw all contribute to layered fruity sour notes emerging from sharp lambic funk. Very very good. Hard to find any criticism here, and I’m sure the three years this has matured in bottle has helped blossom these flavours perfectly.

MotherBrother (941) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2017
Pour a deep copper with a foamy white head. Aroma is lovely of country grass, orange zest, tangerine, slight horse blanket, slight green apples, ever so slight barnyard. Taste is mildly Sour, and very well balanced. Semi watery body with with a slightly fizzling but still mellow carbonation. I like this.

Hoprider (611) - DENMARK - MAR 17, 2017
Pours a cloudy bright golden orange with a thin film of white foam. Nose has bitter apricots, orangepeel, leather and mineral flinty notes. Very good. Even some sweet flowery or even pastry notes. Crisp and clean on the palate with mostly light brett, yeasty notes, and light apricots again. Turning mineral in the aftertaste. Must say that I kinda love this right now way more than when I tried it mutiple years ago. This is great stuff, not gueuze but not far off Sainte Adairius stuff.. liking this big time.
