gnoff (7931) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2014
Draught at Ölrepubliken as "Lambic Brouwerij Boon 2 Jaar 6.5%" on October 6, 2014.
Hazy golden to amber color, small white head. Acidic, sour, fruity, berries, unripe red currants when still green, lactic acid, a slight touch of vinegar scent. Acidic, still some sweetness reminiscent of canned pineapple juice, orange juice, citrus, red currants taste. Acidic, fresh aftertaste. Low CO2 rather mild mouthfeel, no bitterness, a bit fruit skin like tart finish, but not much.
Very nice, very fresh, highly drinkable. I like it a lot.

Osprey87 (1798) - WALES - OCT 2, 2014
Keg at Brewdog as ’Boon Old Lambic’ . Golden orange, slight haze, small white head. Aroma is sharp sour lemon, syrupy sweet, sweet n sour sauce etc. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation, the anticipated tooth coating lambic body. Taste has tangy high notes and musty low notes, sour lemon. Fine, but not my style and I don’t find the complexity that others do in lambic beers.

Keg at BD Sheps Bush, 27/08/14, Clear orange with no head. Nose is musty wood, lemon rind, dank resonance, light spice, biter citric peel, funk, oaky vibes, strains of grandads shed. Taste comprises rotten apple core, light acidic qualities, lemon rind, funk, citric tinged straw, damp hay. Medium bodied, fine carbonation with a lightly puckering acididc wash. Decent lambic.
