Draft. I had to remind myself that this was a lambic and not a straight fruit beer which accounts for the sourness. Super tart with acetic acid notes. Very funky but also very raspberry-y (no clue what a currant is supposed to taste like). Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle ---> Tulip. Pours a hazy red with little to no carbonation visible. Smells like a bunch of things... old grapes, sterilizing solution and a faint scent of wet wood. The taste is a rush of sour cranberries and grapes with high acidity. Finishes bitter and dry like lemongrass. By far the funkiest brew I’ve come across.

This poured a bright red color with no head. The aroma is a bit off putting like someone baked a fresh cherry pie with some currants and then farted loudly after having eggs for breakfast. The flavor is sour with cherries and currants. Overall this was ok despite the smell of it. Suttree (6382) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Man, this is sour. I mean, really sour. So sour that you can’t really taste any fruit, just a lot of sour. sour. soo sour. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Sample at a tasting at Suttree’s. Pours bright purplish color with almost no head. The aroma is black currant, polyurethane, garlic, musty cheese, and farts (not the farmy funk; quite enteric and abrasive). The flavor is dry and fruity with a musty note and ample lactic sourness. Fortunately the flavor lacks the enteric quality that the nose does. A little bit of a let down.

Pours the color of cherry wine, no head. Stinky socks and underware funk is the aroma if it smells like anything. It tastes ok. Light vinegar with sour fruit like cherry. But the lingering cheesey flavor is there. Light mouthfeel with a wetness that is strangely fitting for this foot like concoction. asheft (3082) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
Complex aroma of sour cherries and white grapes and wine, with dried fruit accents. Hazy purplish orange-garnet with a few white foam fibrils on top. Sour, mouth puckering, currant flavour accentuated by lotus root malt, watermelon, and a little vinegary pickle juice. Dry and vinous with a tingly sweet tang on the lips. Light body, low carbonation, sour finish quickly dissipates to faint malt. mixmasterob (1057) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Bottle from Green’s. Pretty, murky rose colored pour. Absolutely no carbonation, still, lifeless. Aroma was full of sour fruit, funky. Flavors were big tart, sour, light fruit, musty. Mouthfeel was lifeless, still. Still managed not to be watery thin, had some substance. Decent. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Beautiful clear pinkish red with no head. Tart stinky feet nose. Flavor is Tart acidity and blackberry/currants fruitiness. Good tangy. patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle. 12.7 oz. Split with Sean for his 22nd Birthday. Night age; sipped both before and after aging. (Air Riff, Annie). Blushy pink pour with a reflective, headless body. Aroma of savory cheese, musty barnyard funk, slight plastic/Sharpie marker notes, and just a hint of the currants, with some plum and cherry as well. Medium bodied with a cuttingly sour, almost balsamic palate. High, dry, and full-on sour in the finish. Very good lambic; well balanced and enjoyable to sip.
