Bottle 750ml @ fonefanBVery (11239) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours slightly hazy deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma is sour with a classic geuze aroma with berries. Taste is light sweet and medium sour with a long dry, vinous, fruity and sour finish. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft to fizzy.
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle shared by Bobby - holy crap this is awesome. Sour and tart, but in control. Rich and bold. Heck yeah this rules! hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle... Cloudy caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is a funky and fruity collage of barnyard, old cheese, horse blanket, fallen oak and dark berries. Medium-bodied and astringent with adequate carbonation. The flavor is very tart, funky and a hint fecal with a dry finish.

Bottle sample @ 2nd RBBSG, August 11th 2012. Courtesy of Tderoeck. Holy hell this beer rocks.
Couleur acajou, sur un col légèrement rosâtre.
Arôme à toutes les qualités d’un lambic fruité, ce très agréable bouquet aigre fruité de mûres, presque de framboise sauvages est un vrai régal. Note ce côté barrique avec des notes boisées qui laissent tout de même la place aux mûres pour se ressentir.
Palais, sec avec un profond profile fruité/mûres, notes de fruits frais/terreux, la manière dont les fruits sont présents est phénoménal, à cela se rajoute de subtiles notes de barrique et de bois, donnant une belle dimension de lambic mariant aigreur fruitée et de barrique.

Gushing to huge dirty-pink head, fluffy, over hazy red beer with an amber-brownish sheen. Pure lambic nose with putteke included, leather, lightly horseblanket, citrus and indeed purple berries. Little fruitiness, lots of (Girardin-recognisable) lambic. Hint at sweetness. Fruit: yes, blackberries: no. Tart, dry-out effect, lipsmacking sourness. Excellent. Might benefit from being a little stronger on the fruit, but if these are really blackberries - brambles - then Jean van Roy affirms they hardly colour/flavour beer.

750mL thanks to forgetfu. Bright jammy strawberry pour with low haze. Pinkish foam subsides. Nose is jammy, salty, a bit vegetal. Taste is sharply carbonated with a ton of minerals. No acid. Just a bit bland and dry. Not really doing it for me.

11/VIII/2012 75cl bottle from a trade with the brewer @ RBBSG - (2012-902) czar (9338) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2013
Clear bright red beer, aery off-white head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: soft bretta notes, sour touch, bit vinous, lots of berries, I’m getting mainly raspberries, bit of chloride, lambic sourness. MF: quite some carbon, but ok, medium body. Taste: sour, bit metallic start, fruity touch, sour cherries, raspberries, little grassy bitterness. Aftertaste: sour citric, bit metallic, bretta, lemony notes, berries. A job well done (even though it wasn’t that hard of a job, right guys? ;-)
bottle shared by tom10101, many thanks! pours hazy light pinkish with a nice frothy off-white head, good retention and lacing. barn, dry unripened red fruits (although they lie low in aroma), (very) few acetic notes, pepper, red grape skin’s acidity and tannins finishing with a balanced astringency likely associated to blackberries. almost prickly carbonation, light body, refreshing, classic (in its own way) and good!
