Ølbaren 2008.03.11 - Thanks for sharing. Deep red with a pink head. The aroma has notes of barnyard and hints of cherries. The flavour is sour, but refreshing, and it has notes of barnyard and hints of cherries. I would have liked the cherries to be more dominant and the barnyard to be less pronounced.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2010 OLD RATE, before I appreciated sours: Let me start off by saying that I am not the biggest fan of most lambics (faro’s seem to be an exception). Smells of lambic yeast with some cherries far in the back. Pours with a large, pink head covering a muddy, bright red body. Good retention. Extremly sour and tart, but lambics aren’t my thing. Mouthpuckering describes the mouthfeel. My girlfriend liked it, I did not. thewolf (12789) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2008

Pours a wonderful deep, dark red. A rather large bubbly and fizzy pink head. Aroma has lots of barnyard, cherries, tartness and brett. Some oranges, light touch of vanilla and a bit of vinegar as well. Medium carbonation - relatively full mouthfeel. Flavour is very, very tart, lots of berries. A distant touch of dark roasted caramel, nuts and tobacco. Long lingering tart finish with lots of nice berries. This is a seriously nice lambic!
37.5cl bottle: Pours a wonderful red, like cherry juice. Just a hint of brown to it. Nice frothy baby pink head. Aroma is a well balanced combination of sweet and sour. A spoonful of sugar mixed with dried cherries, a dash of vinegar, some citrus, a range of other souring agents, sweaty horse-blanket, a slight hint of mint, and a far away touch of caraway seed. Upfront flavors of mixed dried red fruits and a dash of malt. The malt falls off quickly but the dried cherries and other dried red berries/fruits ride a sour wave that seems to cover all the different forms of acid sourness. That brings you into old wood with a faint touch of tobacco. Long finish with wood, tart sour cherries, and a touch of tea leaves. beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2008
I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely cherry-colored pour. The pink-purple froth bunched in the middle, then spread out to form a pink marshmallow head with a lace that clings to the sides of the goblet. The aroma makes clear that this is not some cough syrup. It smells pungent and vinegary, like a lambic should. It is malty and sour on the palate, but also sweet with very delicate cherry highlights. Dry, crisp, and tart. This is an excellent beer!

Bottle @ Ølbaren, Cph. Pours a deep red-brown colour. Sour sweet cherry aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a nice sourness with a soft swetness, cherries and a dry sour fruity finish. RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Pours a foggy reddish hue. No head. Nose is antiseptic and funky like I want the lambics to be. Ahhhh. Pure heaven. It’s been too long since I have had a lambic. Oh how I have missed thee, my love. Mildly sour, but not overpowering. The fruit tones caress the tongue. Beautiful earthy tones. Feel is very, very smooth. Fairly full carbonation and the liquid is well bodied. Like I said. It’s been some time since I have had a lambic. Now I remember why I love them so much. (actually...I never really forgot...how could I have?)

Hazy deeb red with huge pink head. Aroma is tart with natural cherries, barnyard, wood and grapefruit notes. Flavor is slightly sour and tart. Nice sour cherries, wood, leather and barnyard notes in there as well. Lovely! cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 1, 2008
at Akkurat served in a basket: Beautiful red, lots of leather, barn yard and wood in the nose, very tart, long lasting sour aftertaste: a real treat pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Warm lightly hazed red with a nice white head. Brilliantly sour nose. Striking almonds with a subdued cherry. Light and slightly fizzy with small bubbles. wickedly sour without the socks! Rather yeasty. Very lambic. Hit of cherry. Acid! Balanced wheatiness reigns in some of the crazier aspects, sort of. Small almond. Perhaps the beer of the night?
