Aroma is the prerequisite sour fruit and the hint of carrot sweetness. The flavor is sour fruit, very mild carrot/vanilla, malts and a tart/sour/mildly sweet finish.

Bottle - Funky and perfumy. Cloudy gold with almost no head. Lots of lambic funk with lots of perfumy notes. Very perfumy, but not sure I would get the carrot if I didn’t know.

375ml bottle @ Matt’s. Pours a slight hazy dark orange colour with no carbonation. Nose is sour, vegetal, and a carrot in the background. Flavour has an upfront vegetal sourness that is drying in finish. There is some funk that lingers about. This is just weird, but not offensive. Definitely a one time brew.

375mL bottle, pours a hazy orange with almost no head. Aroma is very strange, with lots of carrot, vegetal notes in general and subdued funk. Flavour is very dry, with lots of dry carrot skins upfront, followed by light funk, a touch of sweetness and a herbal character. For something that sounds like it’ll be a disaster, this isn’t bad. Nothing complex or overly pleasing, but it’s intriguing.

Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2017
Cloudy and a bit dull. It’s quite tart on the nose, with earthy carrot notes. On the palate, Has a nice lactic tartness, again a little earthy, the carrot showing through a touch. It’s not that bad, actually, worried as I was.

On tap at mikkeler bar SF. Pours out a rusty nail color topped with a small head. Nose is odd sweetness spice light earthy notes and some tart notes. Taste is more of the nice light tartness earthy notes. Not picking up the carrots.

A really good Lambic. The carrot is very subtle. Really tart and makes you pucker.

Draught at BrewDog Sodermalm, 11/29/16.
Light golden with a bit of darker melon flesh/carrot skin color to it. Small, beige head rapidly dissipating. Good clarity.
The nose shows carrot, but it’s a soft, lightly sweet, juicy character instead of a more vegetal, earthy one. Against the Spontan base beer, I think this works really nicely, as it plays a good contrast to the light sourness and earthy, musty notes of that. Not a whole lot of sour ale character, but bits and pieces of lactic acid and very minor brett. No alcohol or flaw.
In the mouth it’s similar, with juicy carrot on the finish following a lightly tart, fairly malty but mostly well-attenuated body with light but ample carbonation. Some earthiness, even a touch of caramel and honey, with more carrot goodness and hints of lactic acid on the end. I quite enjoyed it, especially given how authentic the carrot comes across (as opposed to say, SpontanWatermelon....).

Bottle from Bruisin Ales - pours cloudy orange, still. Very acidic, gives the sensation of. Bibles on the tongue, but it’s not carbonated. Big root vegetable nose, carrots and sweet potatoes. Very surprising!!
