larsniclas (7006) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2016

harrisoni (18219) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle at Kent Beer Festival 2016. Clear very deep purple red colour no head. Some manure on aroma Some blackcurrant. That is quite sour almost glue like. Wow. Aggressively sour. Blackcurrants glue vinegar extremely challenging. Well at least I had it. Very dry on the finish. Tannin sour dryness. Wow.

ninecats (528) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle. Hazy ruby red with no head, complete flat surface. Aroma is sulfur, vinegar, oak notes, old red wine, funkiness, berry notes. Taste is typically Hanssens tart, astringent feel, red old wine, vinegar, hard to detect cassis but some old berry notes are detected, again oaky note, dry and tart finish. Medium body, zero carbo. Hm, something about the sulfur (typical young lambic?) and oak combo that doesnt quite add up for me. Experimental indeed.

daje (4334) - NORWAY - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle, december 18th 2015. Dark purple body with a small pink to white head. Aroma is tart with blackcurrant, wood, funk. Taste is sour with lots of berries, leather and barnyard. Works pretty well. The berries overshadow the lambic a bit but hey, blackcurrants are good. Warning: our tounges and lips became purple after drinking this one :)

olsvammel (7121) - rebro, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle at a Systembolaget tasting. Tart and fruity smell with notes of earth cellar and stable. The tartness was acetic and strong. Unfortunately the cassis isnt that noticeable. A rough sour beer.
