Cloudy orange. Nose is big funk, tart fruits, more funk. Taste is incredibly sour candies, tart fruits, funk, leather. Salivating thinking about this one.

ineedbeer (1983) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Aroma is bright and fruity. There is no mistaking the tart raspberries in this beer. Some lactic acidity hiding behind the fruit. A light oak note is also present as is a touch of mustiness, but the Brett character is very low. Pours a beautiful golden orange with absolutely zero head. Fairly cloudy but I did drive with this bottle a couple hours ago; definitely disturbed the yeast. A hint of a red hue in the edges. Flavor is incredibly tart; it's so mouth puckering that its hard to allow your entire palate to experience this beer. Once you get past the acidity, there is a nice tart raspberry note and a touch of oak. Once again the Brett character that you might expect to find is very minimal. Finishes very dry. Medium bodied with no carbonation which really accentuates the body of this beer. If there is any astringency it is hiding behind the acidity and is difficult to detect. Very low alcohol warmth. Overall this is an enjoyable beer, but you have to really love sour beers. This isn't your typical fruit lambic. This borders on the level of acidity that I can handle and almost drowns out the fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of funk and raspberries. The flavor is down the same road. I get a lot of tart raspberry notes, as well as some funk and oak. The beer is very dry. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottled. Poured brilliant sunset orange with nothing sticking around for head.. quite still. The aroma picked up sour raspberries, oak, and vinegar, with barn-like funk and leather accenting.. more fruit on the back of the nose.. lovely! The flavor found tart raspberry seeds and vinegar from the very beginning through the long finish.. some lemon rind and oak too.. came back to the tart seeds on the long, quasi-funky finish. Medium-ish bodied and engaging on the palate.. sour and bracing throughout.. this was fantastic!

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 375 ml. fles bij DHL 2011 Vintage normaal gezien met etiket deze keer. Helder gouden, lichtjes koper, geen kraag. Geur is fruitig, veel frambozen maar de frambozen zijn veel zuurder dan zij ooit in het echt zouden zijn, eik, sterke citroenzuur, frambozenpitten, heel helder zuur, heel zure witte druiven. Smaak is heel heldere, sherpe zuurheid, het heeft niet de fruitige dikte van hun oudbeitje, compleet uitgedund, veel frambozen maar extreem zure frambozen maar desondanks het fruit is duidelijk herkenbaar en volop hier aanwezig inclusief de pitjes, eik, heel veel citroenazijn, saladedressing, azijn, lange zure nasmaak, extreem puckering, het begint ok maar tegen het einde van de fles voel jij het echt wel, dit bier is pas echt extreem zuur, dit hoort bij de aller zuurste zure bieren dat ik ooit gehad heb, mogelijk zelfs de zuurste, jij voelt het echt wel. Dit bier is niet aan het flirten met azijn, het is het verdorie aan het betasten, kan bij,a als dressing verkocht worden probeer iemand die nooit zuur bier heeft gehad dit als bier te verkopen. Platte volle mondgevoel ja ik vind dat een goed ding. Heerlijk, prachtig bier, verdorie. ////////////////////////////////////////////////// Tried another 375 ml. bottle. Thx! for the sample. Totally messy & experimental, pure funk, rubber, totally wild with little raspberry. Very odd & raw mess. Interesting but not as good as previously. Keeping the old score for now.

Bottle. Red-orange pour with quickly fading head. Aroma of intense oak, funk, raspberries are present but in a very sour way, not particularly fruity smelling but very nice. Taste is super sour, citric and acetic all at once, slightly puckering, but very tasty. More raspberry in the taste. Palate is very dry and carbonation is present in spite of the "flat" appearance. Excellent lambic, if a tad too sour.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours gold with a white head. Has a grassy/funk.tart/poop smell typical of a lambic. Taste blends tarte with acidic with funk well with subtle fruitiness. The oakiness comes out on the finish. Glad I have 12 more of these.

NikkTwist (2899) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange. Head dies away quickly. Strong sour raspberry. Delightfully so. Tasting some full raspberry notes, including leaves and stems. Also a bit of the wonderful earthy anomalies that come with wild plants. Very sour. Pungent. Fantastic!
