Rightious1230 (14) - Escondido, USA - APR 7, 2014
Slight bubbles, thin white foam, orange hazy color lemon and more lemon aroma, pretty acidic, but I did like it. Residual yeast in bottom, not a problem, 750 bottle. I think from hi times in Costa Mesa I was told. Would have again.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2014
Taster at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 25th May 2011, courtesy of Scopey. Slightly hazy and bitty gold. Delicate sourness, really calmed down by the wood aging. Nice citric bite and a fresh finish. An exceptionally drinkable sour.

Duntoyou (100) - Kr.sand, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
Lambic bio 2010. Pale yellow. No head. Uncarbonated, or very close so. Aroma of funk, barnyard, hey. Lambic. Quite sour. Dry. Funk. Citrus barnyard. The mouthfeeling is wierd because its not carbonated. Soft.

lesifflebiere (1212) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2014
Version bio 2008. Liquide d’or, effervescence nulle, nez presqu’en vinaigre mais qui laisse percevoir des pointes de raisins et de levures sauvages. Passablement acidulée en bouche, elle est cependant assez ronde, bien piquante, d’une belle profondeur. Un lambic de référence, moins facile d’approche que certains autres, mais qui impressionne par son audace et ses saveurs outrageusement franches.

ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Aroma: distinct sourness, lemon, hay, oak, good dose of Brett earthiness and complexity. Appearance: golden/copper pour, no head. Taste: lemony tartness, hints of oak, some earthy/leathery character and spiciness from the Brett. Palate: light-medium body, no carbonation. Overall: interesting brew - would have to say that I prefer at least a bit of carbonation, but still rather enjoyed this.
