huge thanks to Sean9689 for bringing this

batch 4 2009 375ml

pour was a dark dirty murky pinkish ruby. kind of like ruby red grapefruit juice.

deep cherry and fresh blueberry with hints of sour lemon and dry oak.

up front, there was almost a bright cherry aspect going on. through the back end and the finish this ripe fresh blueberry just lingered and stuck to the tongue for plenty of wonderful aftertaste. nice light oak and sourness through out to really carry this. lots of depth in this.

light and zesty with mild to moderate carbonation. some dryness in the finish. dry blueberry in the mouth afterwards.

overall, amazing. nuff said.

Small pour of the 2007 black foil vintage generously shared by Shaun Hill himself on the night before HF anniversary. Hazy pinkish pour with a few bubbles of foam. Aroma is a pure wonder. Lots of blueberry remains on the aroma despite this bottle’s age, with the regular lambic aromas coming out as a nice dry spiciness, almost peppery. Taste is super fruity but quite acidic too. Never has there been such a perfect match between a fruit’s acidic/sweet character and lambic’s funk/acidity. Everything just blends perfectly into one of my new favourite beers all time. Stunning.
