Rating #1900. 05/03/2015 Batch. Upon opening the bottle, the beautiful lambic scent fills the room. Hazy orange color with white head, very few very tiny bubbles visible. Aroma is the typical rubber funk, lemony, but residual sugars are definitely noticeable, in the form of some vanilla even. This gives an interesting natural sweetness already in the aroma. Taste is slightly sweet at first, then a big earthy funkiness dominates, a ripe apple fruitiness there as well, the finish is bittersweet and slightly sour, just right. Super-smooth silky mouthfeel with a very very very tiny amount of carbonation. Full-bodied (due to the residual sugars, which are unusual for bottled Lambic). How awesome is Lambic that even when something goes wrong, it’s still great? I wouldn’t mind if more batches went ingedoesjeld. Lambic with a body is nice for a change as well.

hackobock (3213) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2016
February 12, 2016. Bottled December 10, 2009.
Light hazy dark orange with a minimal fizzy tan head. Aroma is leather, barnyard, oak, toffee, dried fruits, green apples, and lemon. Taste is very light sweet and quite light sour. Finish is light tart with green apple and lemon juice, sweet toffee and dried fruit hints, barnyard and leather. Medium bodied, slight oily texture, almost flat carbonation.
Good, has developed some nice dried fruit character which worked very well along the funky and soft sour fruity notes.

Camons (9629) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle @ Home. Pours slightly hazy golden, no head. Aroma of light sourness, leather, grapes, wood, barnyard, citrus, lemon. Flavor is light sourness, malt, wet wood, tart fruity, wine grapes, citrus, leather, dusty. Medium body, flat carbonation, light acidic finish. The lack of carbonation gives it a light winelike feel to drink. 020116

ctipping (1040) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2015
750 mL bottle. Bottled 12/7/2006. Originally reviewed 4/6/2013. Orange body. Clear without much head. Thin collar. Smell is standard Drie Fonteinen funk. Bright lemon acidity. Barnyard funk. Nice. Taste is a bright lemony sour flavor. Funky, but not as much as standard 3F. Lots of pale malt and wheat. Low carbonation, slick and not overly sour. Slightly sweet. Nothing compared to Oude Geuze, but a great lambic.

Maakun (3087) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Slight hazy dark golden without any head. Apple, apricot, peach, pineapple, overripe mango, quite some funk, light lactic notes, sherry, light wood and vanilla, light leaves and berry pits. Light sweet and very light bitter and sourness. Medium bodied with no carbonation. Very interesting stuff, way more sweet and fruity than the regular gueuze.

Pours dark straw color. No carbonation. Some prickly mouthfeel from seemed still beer. Definitely to style. Aroma of tart grape skins and oak. Smells like bar wood and cellar winery. Flavor is subtle oak and big tartness. Finishes very dry and brandy wine like. Very nice.
