Amazing lambic! Pale blond, nose very complex, sour, oak. Taste very complex again, sour oak and wild notes. Uou!

375 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; BIG thanks to Dogbones for this one!). Bottled on Feb. 23, 2006. Looks decent; no real carbonation though. A cloudy robust orange. Smells good; funky and cheesy. Tastes like it smells, but less robust due to lack of carbonation. Gotta give this a 2 on the palate because I get no carbonation whatsoever (and I like carbonation in my lambics). Worth trying as long as you don’t have to give up the farm to get it. I can imagine this would be a 4.0 or higher for me if properly carbonated.

Hay and sour apples on the nose. Beautiful golden liquid and a quickly dissipating ivory head. Granny Smith apple on the first taste barnyard and white wine, or white grapes. Dry and delicious. Great beer

CarlJonas (212) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
(Bottled 2006) Slightly hazy orange liquid, no head. Elegantly oaked sour aroma but with notes of stable and gunpowder. Medium sour taste, followed by lots of gunpowder that gives way to a long-lasting blood grapefruit finish. Low carbonation, slightly astringent, medium rich mouthfeel. Smooth is perhaps not the first word that comes to mind when you’re talking lambic and geuze, but in this case it somehow feels appropriate.

mikeyo1 (210) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
bottle @ home, 2006 edition. Pours hazy orange with no head. Aromas are quite mild sour for a lamic, barnyard, citrus, leather, wet hay, wood, wheat and yeast. Slight notes of vanilla. Crisp and light bodied. Flavor is sour and dry, initially of lemon, brett, sour green apples, wheat, unripe red currants and oak. An interesting gun powder note lingers along with lemon peel and blood orange for a long time in the aftertaste. Sour medium bitter finish.

Habanero (2624) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of brett, caramel, citrus and vinegar. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and flat carb. An excellent Lambic.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - APR 6, 2014
05/04/2014 Ma che siete venuti a fà (750ml bottle). Dorata acida, appena torbida, schiuma modesta poco persistente. Al naso sentori di stalla, cantina, note di cuoio, citriche, intensa e (relativamente) pulita. In bocca è acida decisa, citrica, un po’ più ruvida e spessa di altre 3F, nel finale una leggera nota acetica. Corpo medio-leggero, quasi piatta. 3 Fonteinen è sempre una garanzia.

Lilja (1637) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2014
Med ölföreningen, smak och doft av äpple, jäst, vita vinbär, vått gräs, trä. Torr och frisk. Saknar kolsyra men smakerna är fina.

Vignale (2061) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2014
2006 vintage drucken med ölföreningen. Äppeljuicefärgad, klar, men viss bottensats, ingen kolsyra eller skum. Doft av vete, jäst, syrliga äpplen och aningen gummi. Vita vinbär, omogna smultron, lätt syralighet, lite platt munkänsla men trevlig snäll funk. Trevlig men kanske en liten oren bismak och så är jag lite ovan vid lambikens lite platta munkänsla när inte kolsyran finns där.

Nidaros (40) - NORWAY - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle @Diskoteket, Trondheim. Dark copper colour withouth any head or carbonation. Smells of horsblanket, hay and layers upon layers of funk. The palate serve the same funkyness alongside a nice lemony tartness. Mild accidic aftertaste. Great beer that I was very pleased to find at my local bar.
