Frank Boon’s unblended lambic, an example of the style which has achieved near perfect balance, tart, funky and complex but equally elegant, fruity and flowery, acid but not too ’neig’. Boon clearly knows what he is doing - but anyone familiar with the lambic tradition already knows that for a long time... Very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
At WE of Spontaneous Fermentation 2014. Hazy/murky orange with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of wood, brettanomyces, caramel, cheesy notes and light sweetness. Taste is slightly/moderately sweet with brettanomyces, wood and caramel. Medium body. Flat. Dry finish. Way better than the Boon Oude Lambik we had at Night of the Great Thirst. Good balance, not agressive at all.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
