Buona, ma l’acidità rischia di smarrirsi in una direzione dolciastra e sciropposa. Riesce comunque a mantenere un rispettabile contegno da lambic ed esprimere note speziate e leggermente maltate abbinate a un’acidità dignitosa.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a hand-bottle (growler?) at the Leiderkerke Beer Festival. Pale gold-amber, flat. Nose of leather, citrus, horse blanket, old books. Quite sour flavor wiuth lemon, yogurt/spoiled milk, leather, dust. A bit harsh (but nothing next to the MS). Creamy, with an oily body. Interesting and refreshing, not exactly delicious but balanced and nice.

Tap at WoSF, 2013 (thanks to 77ships). It pours clearish yellow with no head. The nose is wood, fairly bitter, light spice, leaf, tangy white grape and light mustiness. The taste is bitter-sweet, very mild indeed, faint lemon, green apple, wood and a touch of zesty lemon. Light body and low carbonation. Not bad, it has a good sweet-sour thing going on. Mild and easy going.

Dag van de Lambik @ Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst. Very young Lambik from 2012. I didn’t expect that this shoud be so sweet, like they use a lot of sugar and sweeteners. Bitter aftertaste and almost no sourness. Not my favourite lambic.

Cloudy golden orange beer with a small white head from the hand pump. Very nice fruit character of tropical fruits, lemon, and green apple. Tartness is there with a bit of grass and earthy funk. A slight sweetness on the palate, but still plenty of lactic sourness. A lot of hay, a mild citric quality, some earthy funk, and a lot of lemon and green apple.

@ DHVL from tap.
The weakest of the lambics available. Pours orange/brown with no head at all. Bit tartness, wood, lactic acid, but overall a flat and weak lambic ... .
