Pours a clear dark red with a pink foamy head & lacings. Sweet and sour. Lots of black currants and a hint of vinegar. Medium carbonation. Medium bodied. Nice and refreshing. Berries in the finish with a hint of bacteria. Very good as a aperitif.

Supermanz (6) - Levittown, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2007 does not count
355ml cork bottle with flute at HomeGrown in Newark, DE. poured deep red/purple with a foamy pink head that lingered. Aroma was fruity with a hint of pine. Tasted very sweet, almost too sweet, strongly currant (which I enjoy). Smooth all the way down with light carbonation and a slight tart finish. My first lambic, I enjoyed it.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2007
12oz Bottle, from old notes. Pours a deep purple color with light purple foam, decent retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet, obviously lots of currant, but also a curious almost spruce like aroma also. Flavor is overly sweet, almost syrupy, with some hits of whatever lambic was ruined to make this and more of the strange pine like flavor. To me its a damn shame, this could easily be an outstanding beer if they didnt pasteurize it.

yespr (43226) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2007
25 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown/purple with a lacing off-white head. Very sweet black currants, a bit like cheap sugarish candy. Fills the room immediately when poured. Sweet sugarish berry flavour which goes into a very sharp acidity/citric finish. Black currants flavour keeps lingering far into the finish. Surprisingly clean and nice, but it only works in small quantities.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - SEP 18, 2007
(375 ml corked bottle, best before end 10/06 (this small bottle says 3.5% ABV and doesnt have word "Lambic" on it) Kind of weird but tasty...Pours light purplish crimson with two fingers of lightly purplish-pink off-white head. Aroma is a little odd - strong mint leaf?, maybe some other spice, sourness and grape. Mouthfeel soft and light, soft bubbly fizziness. Very nice sturdy rings of lacing. Flavor is the mint and maybe other spice in the fore transitioning to sourness and tart grape/cherry. Different but I enjoyed it.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Clear dark red pour with violet hues, a small head atop the liquid forms and fades quickly, just a brief blast of pink and crimson. Aromas of fresh black currants, vinegar, mild tartness and sweet sugars seep through first. Closely behind are bready malts, light fresh mint, earthiness and pear skin. The nose is moderately medicinal. The flavor is highly sweet, but a high acidity level brings this closer to the adored realm of the state of a true, tart lambic. Vinegar notes are still noticeable and pounce on the fruit, dialing its intensity up a notch but in a direction that is less flavorful even though it becomes more quenching. Astringency is moderate. The finish is very sweet, quite tart and actually well balanced. The palate is medium bodied, healthily carbonated and enduring. Rather odd but at least its interesting.
