Dunt (316) - Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Received as an extra from a friend on BA. Thanks a bunch Phil! Pours a complete flat deep purple in color with an aggressive pour. Its completely opaque in clarity. Nose is heavy funk, decadent black current, sharp lemon, horse blanket, and wet dog. Flavor is overtly sour lemon off the bat, then it falls back on the black currant. It has some backing funk and vinegar, but this is almost entirely lactic in sourness. Light mouthfeel, no carbonation, moderate to heavy acidity, and a long finish. Wasnt much of a fan of hanssens prior to this weekend, but after having the Oude Kriek and now this, I think I am becoming a convert. This is crazy sour, but has really nice black currant character as well. Interested in seeing how these are with age on them.

Juks (138) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2017
375ml bottle at BeerFox Riga. Pours dark purple, almost looks flat, very small pinkish head. Aroma is massive, lots of blackcurrant in the air, vinegar, green apples, brett. Taste is not as acidic as expected. Medium sourness for lambic. Sweet blackcurrant, woody, juicy, very vinegary aftertaste. Taste is mature and balanced. Carbo is very low, almost full body, bit oily texture. Quite an interesting brew, I expected something different, but still like it!

Mrkrd mot lila l med ett ltt, snabbt frsvinnande rosa skum. Syrlig fruktig, brig doft med inslag av tr och funkighet. I smaken tillkommer en viss vingersyrlighet.

Hazy red color with absolutely no head. Aroma has lots of dusty barrel and cellar notes with some fermented fruits in the back. Taste has medium sourness, quite acidic, fruity with slight pits and skin bitterness. Light body, no carbonation, quite dry. Overall its really rustic with lots of cellar and damp wood notes.

ruigo (2611) - PORTUGAL - SEP 30, 2016
37.5cl bottle from April 2016. Hazy dark red with no head. Funk, red fruit and acid aroma. Soft carbonation and light body. Taste is sour, acid with fruity notes. Overall, a good beer but lacks carbonation what probably makes it more acid.
