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....

375ml, caged and corked bottle, a share from a while ago, thanks whoever you were, from notes.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium salmon-tinged amber colour, with one skinny finger of finely foamy, and sort of creamy pale pink head, which leaves zilch in the way of lace anywhere near the glass as things quickly sink away.

It smells of musty and earthy old-school yeast, gritty and grainy pale malt, sour red wine cooking vinegar, that wet old wood that you trip over while hiking in the forest, generic white Italian cheese, and some sassy dark berry fruitiness. The taste is rather acerbically tart black stone fruit (so sue me), bready and doughy pale malt, funky middle European cheese, more estery vinegar, damp French barrel staves, and some understated earthy yeastiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its sassy Euro-trash frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and so-so smooth, as all that dark orchard tart fruitiness has a way of making a girl's demeanour dim, if you know what I mean. It finishes trending uber-dry, the tart black fruitiness really the lingering order of the day.

Overall - another rather sincere and subtly stellar offering from this (almost) off-brand producer of true-to-form lambics. Tasty, and not quite as sour as may have been implied here, but enough so that aficionados of the style will have very little to complain about - but they probably still will, amirite?
