neongolden (727) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2015
(On tap as 2 Jaar Lambik @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Apr 9 2015) Hazy medium orange with no head. Aroma is lactic lemon, sweet orange and peach, a little overripe, loads of wood, a sour apple note, barnyard funk and earth there as well. Flavour is actually pretty sweet and caramel, orange, pit fruit, sweet red apple, maybe berries, a hint lactic, fresh wood?, softly bitter and earthy. Finish is dry and barely tart, fairly bitter and herbal, touches of wood. Light bodied and barely effervescent. Not too much sourness or funk, really, but fruity and tasty. Tough to drink loads and loads of but quite nice in moderation.

Benzai (9778) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Sampled @ ZBF 15. Hazy light orange color, virtually no head. Smell and taste a balanced light sourness, fruitpeel. Round flavor, round mouthfeel. Absolutely lovely.

brnandersen (2404) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 24, 2015
Draught at Taphouse, Cph. Slightly hazy amber-golden colour with just a few white bubbles on top. Lightly sour aroma with tart apples, vinegar, spicy hints, horse blanket. A good amount of lemons. Taste is sour. Medium body with a slick texture and a flat carbonation. Lasting, acidic finish with sour fruits and subtle vinegar. My Belgian beer # 200 and a highly drinkable Lambik.

2 year old lambic from tap At Mikkeller bar, Viktoriagade, Köpenhamn. A soft mellow lambic with a soft refreshing tart acidity without traces of vineager. Green apples, lemon, wet wood. Not a lot of fiunk/character but really nice.

Mjp12 (680) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Not as aggressively bitter as some lambics, but gives a style tick, so good with me.

nihtila (1468) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2015
10.1.2015. Slightly hazy brown. Aroma of sour apples, old wine, cellar, citric tartness. Taste is tart, sour wine, some fruits, maybe still apples, some spices. Still strange but better than previous time. Still getting used to lambics.

Ácida y fuerte, con sabor a madera y lo que esperaba yo de esta lambic vieja.
