23/IV/16 - on tap @ Zythos Bierfestival 2016 (Leuven) - BB: n/a (2016-408) Thanks to the BE RB crew for sharing beers today!

Note: wow, for the last 5 years I’ve been meticulously trying to sample every straight lambic in Belgium. It took me 5 years before finally encountering the Boon jonge lambik at one of the many festivals I’ve attended over the years. Finally! :D
Cloudy orange to beige beer, no head. Aroma: bit cheesy, fruity, sweet impression, little smelly. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: bit metallic, fruity, lovely stuff, some green banana. Aftertaste: soft acidity, bit metallic, cheesy touch, pretty bitter, kiwi.
