Not a huge fan. Dull and lifeless body, but not even in an interesting way. Nose has some good fruity qualities but they are somewhat lost in the flavor. Thankfully its not overwhelming with the acetic acid like some bottles Ive tried, but I cannot really say this is all that special.

vyvvy (6310) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Pours clear and dark purple with the faintest of white heads thats gone instantly except for a small circle of bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. The aroma is quite tart with some vinegar traits and lots of cassis - the fruit is still very vibrant even though Ive held on to this for at least a year. There are hints of oak and a bit of funky yeast. The body is smoother and thicker than most lambics and there is not trace of carbonation. I dont know if this lambic is supposed to be still, but this one is. The taste starts off with a sour cassis, earthy wood, some of oak aging and a hint of green apple. The finish is a bit muddled with the flavor blending in an odd way. Nice lambic.

Pours dark purplish red color with no head. Aromas of sour currants and barnyadr funk. Very sour currant flavor. Mouth puckering sourness. Light to medium body with no carbonation. Very tasty.

yngwie (16879) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2011
Bottle, 375ml corked. A reddish orange beer, quite clear, and with a little rim of off-white bubbles for head. Sourish, vinegarish aroma with a good dash of berries, although more reminiscent of raspberries than black currants. Some cellar hints. The flavor is citrusy-sour, with berries dominating, finishing lemony and berry-sour. Dry, medium bodied and puckering. A quite lovely one, even for me who dont care much for black currants. 110204

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle at Eulogy. Pours a shiny straw color. Aroma is sharp of acetone with plenty of lemon. The flavor is 65% funk and barnyard, 35% mouth-puckering tart peach, lemon, and raspberry. Sharp acidic bite with an awesome funky dryness. Slightly syrupy body. Overall, wonderful.

larsga (7470) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2011
Small white head. Hazy deep purple body. Deep earthy funky blackberry aroma with barnyard notes. Dryish rounded deep earthy fruity taste is simple and short. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry raisiny watery port aftertaste with raisiny waxy notes. Loong aftertaste. Really unusual, and highly drinkable. (Taster at the brewery.)

Koelschtrinker (19435) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Wenig suerlich, dafr um so fruchtiger prsentiert sich der Antrunk sowie der weitere Verlauf. Im Mittelteil wssrig, meist aber verdeckt durch die angenehme und leicht sen Fruchtnoten. Dies kann aber nicht ber den sauren Grundcharackter hinwegtuschen. Im Abgang aber dann doch wssrig. Leckeres Fruchtlambiek, das zwischenzeitlich zu scharf wirkt. /11/12/12//12

thornecb (5814) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Pours bright ruby into a tumbler. Pink head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sour black currant aromas. Soft and tart with currant front to back and lasting bitter ground seed finish.

This cassis on lambik smells nice! Taste is less fine, a bit flat at the end. Had it one the tour the geuze (may 2011)
