4.14/5 rDev -8.6%
750 mL bottle poured into a wine glass. 2012 bottle.
Appearance - Deep red, purple body. Nice white head. Collar lasts forever.
Smell - The blueberry flavor comes out a lot, but it's got a green character to it. Nice funk and acidity.
Taste - Also very green. Funky and a nice blueberry flavor. Graininess and sourness. Finishes with a nice fruity flavor blended into a sour bite
Mouthfeel - Spritzy carbonation. Medium to light body.
Overall - I hoped the fruit character would be incredible, but it's very green. Fou'Foune is better, but this is a great lambic.

Reviewed from notes (Mr. Bubbler's "End of the World Tasting") 12/21/12. Thanks.
Vintage 2011. 750ml bottle.
A: Pours a deep reddish purple with a 1" light pink head which fizzles before fading to the rim leaving a few spots of lace.
N: Classic horseblanket funk, chessy, with mild blueberry jam, some vinous notes. Somewhat sour with wood tannins.
T: Fresh blueberry and white grape. Funky with woody mold and mildly sour. Well balanced.
M: Medium body and carbonation. Dry, musty/dusty and fruity finish.
O: Amazing and enjoyed. Maybe overhyped? Try it and decide for yourself. Would have again and again.

2012 Vintage, 750 ml bottle
Pours a purplish red color with a one finger pink head which fades quickly, leaving no lacing. The aroma has tart blueberries, barnyard funk, very acidic.
Tastes like tart blueberries. Acidic, and very dry. There is some barnyard funk in the taste, but not as much as there is in the aroma. The taste becomes a bit sweeter as I drink it, then goes back to being more tart and acidic. Nice and complex. Very well crafted.
Light bodied with low carbonation. Finishes dry. Very inviting and easy to drink. well worth seeking out.
