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 (1060) - 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 (4062) - 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 (1242) - 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.

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 it’s not overwhelming with the acetic acid like some bottles I’ve tried, but I cannot really say this is all that special.

bright cherry red from bottle. no head. aroma of huge sour funk, must, cherry pit and berry skin...huge aroma...huge sourness. slightly flat body gives rise to big currant, cherry, raspberry, sourness, and vinegar. very sour...could use a bit more carbonation...huge oaky finish...intense and nice vyvvy (6834) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Pours clear and dark purple with the faintest of white heads that’s 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 I’ve 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 don’t 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. smith4498 (3687) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2011
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 (17284) - 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 don’t care much for black currants. 110204 italarican (1606) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, 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.
