erickok (5024) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2016
Surprisingly misty, headless. Round apply sweetness, fermenting fruit like sourness, plum pie, rhubarb. Juicy flavour and body, soft carbonation. Long soft sour aftertaste. Nice beer, despite the big sourness it’s reasonably accessible. (375ml bottle from Dekoninck)

sherm1016 (1271) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2016
2015 Vintage. Pours a deep orange amber color with no head. Aroma is light, oak, some earthy funk. Medium on the palate with very light carbonation. Not completely still, but not much bubbles. Flavor is tart, green apple, citric lemon, oak, some light funk. Very tasty. The under carbonation doesn’t take anything away from this.

Mesjasz (748) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 18, 2016
Butelka. Rocznik 2015. Aromat bardzo intensywny, sporo obory i cytryny, lekko octowych owoców i białych winogron. Smak lekko kwaśny, mocno wytrawny i trochę taniczny. W smaku funk, agrest, cytryna, jabłko, niedojrzałe winogrona. Dobry, ale jednak refermentacja dodaje geuze wiecej złożoności.

SinH4 (2172) - Garching, GERMANY - APR 9, 2016
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.
