750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Almost illegible label. Batch 1, 2010 bottle.

Appearance - Huge white head. Pillow of foam. Hazy orange body. Very pretty.

Smell - Grain. Lemony. Oxidized. Fruity, kind of a stone fruit aroma. A bit of funk.

Taste - Someone said it was strawberry. I get a hint of it. Some sort of berry fruit, at least. Lemon. Medium doughy grain. Moderate sourness, but it finishes out the flavor.

Mouthfeel - Seemed like it would be high carbonation, but it isn't. Low carbonation. Medium bodied, especially for a berliner.

Overall - It's decent. Seems a little old, though.

75cl bought in March 2013 at the schoolhouse, with a misprinted label. These notes are from Dec. '13 (finally input here) .Some white, waxy chunks of precipitate floating on top of the bottle neck (not a problem). Pours cloudy light brass color, Orval-looking, with a lasting nimbus of head. Orange, caramel, clove, and yeast funk, excellent smell. Powerfully tart but fruity, citrus and apricot, like an edgy and fulsome lambic, lovely. Cider vinegar but with a well-limbed ale built on top. Substantial but clean feel.
