Possibly the prettiest beer I’ve ever seen.

Very whine-y

Pleasantly tart with a sour finish and remarkably smooth beginning

Could use more blackberry but a very well done Belgian fruit lambic.

Poured from 12.7oz bottle (green) into glass. Label has best by date as '04/02/2028'.
Cloudy, dark crimson colored body. Quick fizzy head quickly disappears. No lacing.
Fruit and funk (leather and horse blanket) in the aroma.
Taste is led by the tart berry (difficult to identify as blackberries) and accompanied by acidic lemon and horse blanket, leather funk. Rather dry but vinous after taste.
Medium mouth feel, but low carbonation.
Beautiful colored body, and funk added aroma and taste. The berry addition is not enough sweet to counter the lemon sour. A beer that expresses no hops nor malts, but has an interesting taste. Such is the wide range of "beer".

Poured from a 375 into a Tilquin Gueuze tumbler. 2015/16 bottle extra’d to me from Merpunk1, thanks!

Pours a cloudy maroon-ruby color with a small off-white/purple head that reduces pretty quick to leave little lacing and retention.

Aromas of BlackBerry, musty oak, Belgian funk, tannic berries, earthy and funky.

Taste is full of musty oak, berry skins, dry red wine, blackberry juice, currants, funky Belgian yeast, finishing dry but juicy. Carbonation was a tad low, body was medium and very easy to drink.

I really enjoyed this - it really embodies the Belgian character and flavor profile and separates itself from other berry sours.

Quite hazy purple, no head, quite still

Smell of red fruits, some funk

The taste is quite pleasant, very fruity, some sourness, a bit of sweetness balanced by the light bitterness. Nice complexity

Almost completely flat mouthfeel. Which isn't a good thing here

Overall a nice beer but lack of carbonation

Oh so much potential, but a flat pour and lemonade like bubbles over a rose colour body do not look the biz.
Muted aromas of plums (not blackberries!) and lambic goodness
Taste is also really middle of the road, fruits don’t dominate and it’s not zesty... - maybe I should have had fresher.
The real letdown is the lack of carbonation.
(Hideous amounts of residue on side of bottle - not seen that before in a lambic)

750 with Lisa at Muted Horn in Berlin. Bartender warned that several bottles gushed - this one barely popped. Poured flat, nearly still, WTF? Great nose and flavors but desperately needs carb....
