RasmusOtt (2591) - Aarhus, - APR 7, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2014 Thanks to Bonke for selling me this! Pours hazy redish with no head. Aroma of nice deep fresh raspberries from the bush along with balsamic, lots of funk, cherries, vinegar, wild strawberries, a very weak note of lacto acid, brett, marzipan sweetness, a touch of candy, tart and alot of rural notes overall. Taste is very tart with those fresh wild raspberries straight from the bush, cherries, brett, weak acidic, balsamic, sour deep grapes, barnyard, red currants and overall extremely fresh! A nice reminder about why I love beer so much! Had the Pleasure of tasting batch 2 as well. As I remembered this had an extremely nice balance between the extreme fruitiness and the funky rural notes. Its just so pleasing and very complex! Yet this was not a complete stunner as the first time I got it. Dont know if its because of batch 2 or because my taste buds changed or whatever. This time My rating would have been around 4,4/4,5 . But because my memory of this was so good (and rating 4,7) I am going to only bumb this down to a 4,6 . Amazing beer that is just top notch and which I could drink all day long!

davidezdonz (407) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JAN 1, 2017
A 750ml corked and caged bottle, bottled on 30th June 2015, and best before 30th June 2025. Poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It poured a hazy deep ruby red colour with a thin pinkish head that faded fairly quickly and left only sparse to no lacing. Aromas were of strong cherry tartness with jammy fruit sweetness and oak. There are hints of raspberries, lemon zest and light funk. Tastes sour, tart, cherry, raspberry, oak, lemon zest and vinegar with a touch of funkiness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall this was just great. Surprisingly the cherry was much more prominent than the raspberries and the funkiness was less than expected but, this was still extremely drinkable, tasty and enjoyable. On my must buy list.

750ml bottle - Overpriced Beer Tasting 2016 - thanks martjoobolut!
Cherry stone aroma, a touch pissy, more cherry fruit, other red berries. Very sharp palate, not unexpectedly so. Sweetish cherry fruitiness in the taste, but a nice sourness. Pouring the crap in, its sweeter and fruitier. Finish is sharp. Definitely a classic lambic, a classic kriek, but lacking the wow factor.

The_Osprey (7400) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle share in High Wycombe. Holy shitballs and thanks to Paul. As 3 Fonteinen Hommage, 2013 vintage. Hazy purpley brown, minimal head. Aroma is very intense raspberry, musty burnt plastic, vinegar, old jam, dirty lambic stuff. Body is smooth and rounded with soft carbonation. Taste is pretty acetic, red wine, intense raspberry, sour cherries, more vinegar, lightly grainy with a dry acidic finish. A touch of the sour brown about it in some ways. A very tasty beer. (4.0)
