(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, deep golden with no head whatsoever. Intense, tart aroma yet with a cake-like sweetness - kinda like macaroon pie. Medium body, almost flat with tart and almost fruity accents, some wood and then these cake-like accents. Tart and astringent finish. A very complex and wonderful beer. 120308 Beerhunter111 (23281) - Beerland, GERMANY - APR 29, 2017
Bottle shared with Zlotta and Koelschtrinker. Klares bernsteinfarbenes Bier. Geruch nach reifen Trauben, rote Früchte, leicht holzig, minimal säuerlich. Geschmack ist minimal säuerlich fruchtig, rote Beeren, Trauben, wenig Dörrobst, karamellig, leicht alkoholisch, toll. Leighton (22823) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20K tasting - London. Huge thanks to Ian for this oldie! Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. The nose is all vinegar. Lightly sweet, sharply acetic, with strong vinegar character, vague fruity notes. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Finishes with more sharp acetic bite. A bit harsh overall. This one is most likely over the hill. Rasmus40 (22173) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2011

Süß säuerlicher Geruch. Intensiv säuerlicher Start mit Noten leichten Noten von Honig. Weiche milde Getreidenoten, die Säure bleibt hintergründig aber scharf, spritzig, rund aber unsüffig. Vollmundig, langer Nachhall. Sehr gut. 10/9/12/10/12/11

Vintage 2004, corked half bottleTheydon_Bois (21503) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Clean copper color, without head. Light, strange aroma: plastic, some malt, light mature apples. Quite round mouthfeel, with some malt flavor, traces of paint remover, an unexpected cereals crispiness, and a non invasive but sharp acidity. In the final the cereals leave a breadish touch; the acidity attack the back of the throat and is not very pleasant. Only in mathematics chaos and complexity go together. Difficult to catch…
Bottle split at Kenny 20K, big thanks to Harrisoni, 15/01/16.
Clear golden orange with a decent off white covering.
Nose is vinegar strokes, tarte fruit esters, burnt cherry tones, straw, spice, fruit balsams.
Taste comprises cherry balsams, rising acidity, funk, wood must, grain, damp hay.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, pissy strokes in the close.
Ok ... but hasn’t aged that gracefully ... a touch raw. mcberko (19880) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
2004 Vintage. 375mL bottle at DHVL, pours a fairly clear amber / copper with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet liqueur, like cognac and sherry, red wine notes, and some sour red fruits -- you can certainly detect the higher alcohol. Flavour is very vinous, with complex notes of red wine, sweet liqueur and oak. Very sweet and sort of cidery, with also prominent vinous and liqueur notes. Bizarre stuff - the body is very thin, with an almost cloying sweetness. The aromatics were a lot more pleasant to me, while the body kind of cloys. Weird stuff - fairly good in small samples. saxo (19583) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle. Small head with short duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are fruits, yeast, vinegar and malt. harrisoni (19556) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2008
Bottle that Duff bought in Waagstuk, Antwerp. Now I know that I will be going against the grain here and I do promise to lay down a bottle I have bought and will re-rate in a few years time, but at the moment, I just don’t get the hype about this beer. Clear orange amber colour with no head. Lambicky sour aroma. Bit of plastic. Actually no it’s petrol. OK in mouth, but the finish is too acidic for me. Granary bread soaked in red wine vinegar springs to mind in terms of flavours.
