375ml corked and caged bottle poured into tulip 13/10/13, cheers MasterSki and Sean 9689 for sending the bottle
A hazy dark pink with a deep salmon edge, big light pink cola like foam fizzes out quickly leaving no lace perhaps my glass was dirty, after the foam gone it looks like a slow boiling pot and this might be the noisiest beer I've had in recent memory
S sour cherries, tart raspberries, rhubarb, wood and vinegar, not sure if I'm smelling the blackberries and I haven't seen a gooseberry in at least 7 years so that may just be in my head from the label, some barnyard funk and faint hay, smells very strong and fruity
T just a little toned down compared to the nose, quite sour and more vinegar, just a little less fruit and the oaks very faint, still funky but not over the top
M light bodied and tangy, this one has quite the pucker and wants to turn my mouth inside out, pin prick bubbles work well, sour fruit and vinegar lingers for ages
O a nice fruity lambic, bottled a year ago and the fruits still ultra fresh, quite sour even for the style, perhaps one of the more flavorful beers I've had under 6% in recent memory
750ml label on my 375ml bottle catches me as odd, more 375ml bottles then they planned? either way I enjoyed the liquid in the bottle I had

375ml poured into cantillon chalice
pours a rose and burgundy. little to no head but quite lively and carbonated. yeast chunks even though this has sat for months and was poured carefully. murky.
smells like a sweet start, like those giant ones. lets you know whats about to happen. TARTNESS GUNNA HAPPEN.
starts out mellow, lots of kriek like character and then just explodes into tartness. lots of bright vivid ripe berry. like a sour cobbler? not much on the oak, it is quite faint.
moderate carbonation, sticky and dry but sweet.
pretty awesome. 375 is perfect, suddenly scared of the 750's i have.
