Bottle at Koht (shared by a regular whose name we dont know)
Nice reddy orange. Proper refreshing lambic aroma with plenty of cherry and raspberry. This is a llvely fruity sour thing in the mouth. Plenty of fruitiness carries through. Really lovely bite. Finally, it burps nicely. Better than many of the recent Hanssenses, with a good blend of fruit and (non-vinegary) bite. I cant get numbers off Phil, so we should probably drink this again.

Gout fort de vinaigre de framboise, acidul, actique, note griotte, le tout assez intense. Legre note de chne et forte acidit en fin de bouche. Jaime bien, mais moins complexe et subtile quattendue. du village de la biere strasbourg

jaghana (5702) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle 37,5cl shared by Calisky. A red beer without head. Nose is intense on red fruits and lambic notes, lactic touch. Aroma is on red fruits, acid notes, fruit skin notes, very dry and acid, body is also very acid with red fruit skin notes, very unbalanced and difficult to drink.

TheCametron (2422) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle shared with Rachel whilst watching Romesh Live. Cork eased out without so much as a hiss which backed up the lack of head or any carbonation. Aroma is tart, slightly woody raspberries. Pours clearish red. Flavour is acidic and very tart indeed. It being flat isnt helpful in the enjoyment. I like a bit of a carbonation prickle in a lambic. Nice levels of sourness but doesnt come together the way Id like.

ajnepple (5661) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2016
375 ml bottle from Bottles & Bitters at Sloans Lake. Clear reddish appearance with minimal head. Aroma of raspberries, light oak and some funky sour notes. Similar flavor, rich and sweet with a moderately sour finish. Medium body with a mildly tart and puckering mouth feel. Nice.

martjoobolut (3543) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle (from Pothouse). Pours red. Aroma is sour raspberries, funk, vinegar, hint of acetone. Flavor is sour, vinegar, intense acetone, corked wine, raspberries. Overall: seems like good idea/base, but the intense acetone (infected? bad cork?) turns it really undrinkable. This has nothing to do with good beer/lambic period.

Bouteille. Un liquide rouge sans mousse. Un nez intense dacide avec des notes de framboises. Une bouche tout aussi acide mais avec des framboises bien prsentes. On comprend pourquoi elle se nomme exprimental. Est-ce que lexprience va durer longtemps encore, jai mal lestomac!

Hanoi (895) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2016 Bottle. Nose is vinegar, oak, cheese, dough, green apple, lemon, raspberry tea, sherry, red wine vinegar. No head, very flat. Taste is overpoweringly acidic, vinegar, marzipan, raspberry, lemon, more acid, green apple, cranberry, vanilla brie in the very very acidic finish. Mouthfeel is flat and battery acid.This is the first lambic that I?ve ever struggled with acid and it detracts. According to Tim Webb, this is a barrel by barrel proposition, but this really isn?t good which is a shame from such good brewer.
