Vignale (4163) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2018
Flaska från belgiuminabox. 2013 vintage. Mörkt gyllengul disig vätska och en hel del sediment, högt vitt stabilt skum. Fin funkig doft med stall, äpplen, fat och citrus. Mjuk rund syra, citrus med lätt skalbeska, lite platt kropp och inte så stort djup i smakerna men annars trevlig. Gott.

375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut! (8:4:8:4:15=3.9)
Really heady sour apricotty aroma crawls out of the glass. Woody dryness, fruity, apricotty. Gentle tartness, but smooth and mellow palate. Buttery apricotty finish. Bloody gorgeous. This is how you do sour beer. Mere words don't do this justice.

375ml bottle shared by Mart, thanks! Hazy yellow beer, small white head. Nose is earthy, funky, fruity, barnyard, tart notes. Smells pretty nice. Flavor is woody, vanilla, fruit, controlled tartness. Dry and woody finish, more fruit, apricot, slightly spicy hops. Lingering woody vanilla dryness. Great stuff.

Marduk (8849) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 2, 2017
375ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Hazy yellow color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Sweet, sourish, peach, jammy, stemmy in aroma. Sourish, peach, bit of burnt rubber, berries in taste. Peaches, vanilla, woody and burnt rubber and very spicy hops in aftertaste. Mellow mouthfeel. No sign of alcohol. Solid brew.

Quick RB taste at CBC Clerkenwell. 50cl bottle (I think) pours a fizzy dark orange with some frothy, white head. Nose is nice, malt, grist, flowers, funk, lightly vegetal, white pepper. Flavor is nice, lemon, some light grist, yeast, a touch dusty, mild guava, a little marmalade, hints of sulfur. The finish is very spritzy, on the very of being hard but not quite, a touch butter here too. A lot happening.

May 2017 - Paper wrapped cork and cage bottle shared at One Canada Square. As ’Reninge Bitter Blond à Lambiek’, 2013 vintage, 8%. Amber orange, translucent, foamy light brown head. Aroma is lambic, metallic, peachy, musty, apricot. All sorts of nice lambic stuff going on. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is peachy, lemon, sawdust, musty with a light acidity. Very nice indeed. (8-4-8-3-17=4.0)

October 2017 - Bottle share at Magic Dave's Leaving Tea Party. Thanks to Paul. I like this beer but I think it's showing some variability. The other bottle we shared had funked up more than this one. Still, very nice. (7-4-8-4-15=3.8)

SylvainCFC (384) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2017
Robe orange foncée, aspect boisé. Petit gushing quand le bouchon saute. Mousse blanche abondante, aérée et légère. Tenue moyenne. Nez puissant de levure sauvage, lambic, brett. Fruité d’agrume. En arrière, un parfum houblonné léger. Bouche fruitée d’agrume, zeste, peau de pamplemousse. Fermentation sauvage franche et gourmande. Cette sour beer présente du corps et une texture moyennement épaisse par la bière blonde qui constitue le mélange. Amertume houblonnée en fin de bouche qui vient rehausser l’acidité (puissante, mais maîtrisée de la bouche. Une très belle sour beer qui a la force de la fermentation spontanée en l’enrichissant d’une amertume fruitée. Maillage très équilibré des deux goût.
