Taste is sharp bretty notes, stable funk, barnyard notes, hay and hints of red berries, apple vinegar, white pepper and wood. Light body, medium to high carbonation.

Palme (4537) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2016
0.75l corked bottle, No 05955 shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours a cloudy darker orangey colored body with a medium sized quickly fading white top. Smells nice. Both sweet and dusty. Old cheese, generic fruits and a nice smooth sourness. Mild wet lemons and ham. Really complex and not bad at all. It has a good dandelion bitterness, lots of woody yeast. A really thick and almost syrupy mouthfeel on this and its soft and near prickling on the bubbles. Woody and mild sour. More bitter than sour. A little tomato essens and tartness, melony fruits, a little white sugar lightness and its somewhat lightdrinkable despite the relatively high abv. Tasty and somewhat refreshing. 04.08.2016

biirusaikou (2678) - - JUN 22, 2016
Sampled at Mechazillas epic insanity tasting session. Quite an epic blend, can feel lemon, apple, berries, nice balance, smooth mouthfeel, dry finish. Nice one, very smooth and enjoyable blend, maybe I expected it a tad richer though.

Hamirubi (579) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2016
7.5cl sample at the Ghent Beer Festival VI (22 VIII 2015). The unbelievable megablend between young and old Lambic from 3 Fonteinen, Boon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, Hanssens, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Tilquin and Timmermans. I have the 2015 bottle in my cellar - for aging (five years or so) - and this sample is a fresh one of the 2015 batch. First of all, this fresh drink not really is outspoken, alas. Highly carbonated, lots of (lemon) grass, some citrus and fruits. Maybe some zest in the mouthfeel too. The general character is sour and tart with a fruity balance. Some hay, some funk. Dry finish, as expected.

willisread (3168) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle shared at Mechazilla event. 2015 vintage. Wonderfully tart nose with lemon, gooseberry and granny smith apples dominating the nose. Some white grape notes come out as it warms as well as barnyard notes. Highly carbonated with a lovely creamy, oaky feel on the palate. Very sherry-like. The finish is dry and crisp with more of that oak feel that lingers. Fantastic.
