Got this one at De Bierkoning a couple weeks back.

From a 375 corked and caged bottle into a wine glass
Best before 7 August 2017
Lot E

APPEARANCE: Pours out flat and yields a bubbly ring eventually. Cloudy amer orange with no carbonation. Ends up looking flat pretty quickly, so not really a fan there.

SMELL: Strawberries for sure, with stinky cheese, tart lemon notes and some acidic vinegar on the nose. Pretty bold. Moldy aromas and lots of fungus as well. A little too much so for my tastes.

TASTE: Tart lemon sourness with sour strawberries as well. Definite funk and cheese up front with a tart and sour, acidic finish. Lemon, strawberry tartness and some moldy flavors linger on the palate. A hint of bitterness as well. Actually much more balanced and enjoyable than the nose had led on.

PALATE: Medium body and no real carbonation. Basically flat. Watery going down and finishes with a touch of acidity. Fine, but a little too flat, even for the style.

OVERALL: A bit too moldy and funky on the nose for me, but the flavor was much more balanced and included more of the tartness and acidity that I tend to enjoy. Enjoyable and refreshing on a warm day, though a little more cabonation is needed to make this one worth while. I'll try another batch, but will pass on this one for now.
