Hoprider (160) - DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Pours clear golden with no head at all. The nose is mineral and tannic.. Some leathery notes a little citrus and hints of oak. The mouthfeel is where I struggle the most with this beer. Every time I try this, I’m a bit let down that it has absolutely no carbonation. The taste is seriously vinous, mineral and dry which continues in the aftertaste. Not my favorite expression..

Un très beau Lambic, concentré et complexe, idéal à la fin du repas pour se remettre la bouche à zéro.

King_Alex_II (634) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Golden clear color, no foam. Old feet, cheese and the typical sour stuff in the nose. No carbonation at all. Sour, funky and a bit too dry. Nice beer, Very sour, but a bit under its hype.

Taste is tart and sour, funky and musty, green apple, wine vinegar, white wine vinous, bread, tangy. Very nice. So good I polished off a whole bottle pretty quickly.

fkoolen (584) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2015
75cl corked and capped bottle at home, 2011 version - bottled in 2014. Transparent golden colour, no head. Nose and taste are quite complex, unlike any lambic I’ve tasted yet: not too sour with barnyard, skunky tones coming through nicely, fruity lemon zest and white grapes, warming malty (?) sweetness, cask notes too. Lingering finish, with sourness building up. No carbonation, soft and dry mouthfeel, good body (especially considering 5% abv). Authentic, pure lambic.

thome50 (1229) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - MAR 4, 2015
2001 label, 2004 cork date bottle via a trade back in 2009 for some Knuckle Sandwich. Finally opened a bottle at the March Libertine Bottle Share 2015. Pours a light orange with no head, obviously. Nose is funky socks, slight sweet pear. Taste is mild sour with some more funk and raisin. Nice but this is probably better fresh.
