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.

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

jbruner (4359) - 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.

GTAEgeek (2050) - 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!

750ml bottle. Thank you, Karel!. Golden yellow colour. Modest white head which disappears quite quickly. Hints of apples, gooseberries, hints of other berries, vinegar, hints of white wine, hints of rowan berries, buckthorn, smooth liqeury notes and earthiness in the aroma. Rich! Gooseberries, applewine at first. Sourness and acidity in the middle. Hints of berries and wine in the end. Berries and sourness in the aftertaste. The palate is very rich and mouthfeel is also nice. Rather medium bodied, great fruit lambic.
