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
