From Lambicus shared at tasting. Cork popped hard and started to slowly gush. So definitely ovecarbonated. Aroma is malty cherry with light fruit lactic. Its sooooooo not acetic, superb malty lactic mix. Slightly buckwheat maltiness. Flavor is similarly cherry malt rich with tartness. Earthy and not sour, just what I imagine this style needs to taste like.

77ships (9267) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
75 cl. bottle split with Kogymo. Procured @ De Hopduvel. Bottled on valentines day 2014. Lots of pressure on this one, opened very, very slowly, luckily not a gusher. Hazy brown, non-lasting head. Ripe fruits upfront, light decay, oak, malt-rich, spices, quite a bit of murky wood, lightly murky vinous leading into substantial but balanced balsamic vinegar, oak, sour finish, almost reminiscent of Rodenbach Vintage. Not very complex or attenuated but very satisfactory. Looking at previous reviews, either this brewery has really stepped up their game or I got lucky.
