Travlr (24758) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Draught, at the pub of the same name. Ruby red, pink head. Taste is sweet, sour and bitter at different stages of the sampling. More prominent hop profile than most. Interesting and unique.

mcberko (17830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
On tap at De Rare Vos, pours a clear bronze with a medium white head. Nose is fairly light, with a tiny amount of funk and berries. Flavour is light and fruity, with various berries, very subtle funk, and sparkling water. Not very complex at all - barely even drinks like a lambic, more like a lightly sour ale, with a light fruitiness and vinegary quality. Not very good.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Amber colored beer with an off-white head. Moderate tartness with a fairly substantial fruity sweetness. A bit of malt, some cherry, grass, and a mild oak aroma. The flavor is a touch sweet with some sugar, malt, and cherry notes. A moderate tartness, some lemon zest, and a bit of grass. Mild oak flavor in the background. An interesting lambic.

Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2012
Tap @ Rare Vos, Schepdaal. Pours unclear red with a pink head. Funk, almond, cherries and caramel. Smooth, dry and fruity. Mild tartness. Good.

Scopey (14729) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Tap at Rare Vos. It pours deep amber, with a reddish hue and thick white head. The nose is hay, floral, some tangy dark fruit and zesty grapefruit. The taste is tangy fruit, raisin, cherry, redcurrant, melon, apricot, floral aspect, rose water, pith and wood, with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Lowish sourness, more tangy really. Well balanced and pretty drinkable. More hop presence than I was expecting, but I enjoyed nonetheless. Unique.

bierkoning (13352) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2008
Draught @ De Rare Vos Schepdaal. Is this beer a lambic, partly, yes. It is more like a flemish brown mixed with lambic, sort of a Jack Op. And a very good one! Strong aroma of caramel, wood and a hint of cherry. Sweetish, sourish caramelly flavor. Thin, with citrus and wood in the finish. Lovely!
