ClarkVV (6100) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2017
2015 750mL at Akkurat with Nelson, 11/28/16.
Bright red robe shows a good clarity and a multicolor-tinted (yellow, pink, etc...) white head with reasonable retention for the style.
The nose is bright and juicy, with both tart and somewhat sweet suggestions. Jammy blackberry and surprisingly no sulfur, given how sulfur-heavy the nectarine bottles are (though they are younger). Good lactic character, with no flaw or intense sourness.
In the mouth its sweeter than expected. Not artificial, of course, but the fruits are tangy and heavily jammy, having not had enough time to work in to the lambic character, which itself is heavily tart and shows a good mix of lactic and brett character. Rather big body for a lambic with strong carbonation.

rodenbach99 (4385) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2016
Style et rsum: Lambic avec plusieurs fruits.
Comment: Dgustation Manseau Automne 2016, Merci Tommy et les autres.
Portrait: Batch 2. Un liquide dor cuivr. Une bouche sur le bois, la bille, le vomi, les fruits et du lambic classique. Une bouche agrable pas trop acide avec du bois et des saveurs sauvages de levure spontane. Peu de fruit, par contre.
Note: 7+/10

GTAEgeek (2053) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Sampled from a 750 mL bottle during Zwanze. Pours a hazy red color, with a small, tan head. The aroma is tart cherries and orange peels, caramel, butter toffee, and a touch of salt. Sweet and fruity up front, with a tart and lightly bitter finish. Medium body, sticky, acidic, and clingy. This is a nicely complex and fruity lambic. Surprisingly well balanced and finishes clean. Very nice!

Bottle pours hazy pale red with a small pink head. Big fruit aroma, berries and cherries, funky and tart yeast. Very sour and fruity flavor, biting, funky. Prickly carbonation with medium body, great feel. Really awesome.

jbruner (4378) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of funky barnyard brettanomyces and sweet stone fruit notes, hint of wood and acidity. Taste is an acidic bite up front, sweet stone fruit notes in the middle blended with wood, a funky ending that finishes dry and clean. Holy freaking wow, this is amazing.

Thanks to Huhzubendah for sharing the bottle! Poured into a taster showing well filtered ruby red with sparse white foam. The nose shows acetic brett with fruit notes of cherry and blackberry with hints of plum. The palate is medium bodied and highly carbonated. Moderately tarted with lightly intense mixed fruits of cherries, blackberries, and light plums. Acetic with light bretty funk.
