A: Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, No Head, No Lacing

Overall, too bad the carbonation was crap because the beer was good without it, but not great.

Exceptionally clean clear flavor, just exploding with balanced tart and sour with the raw funk of nature. Tons of slick malts behind it all with pils, kilned sweetness, and wheat twisted by wild yeast. Carbonation is a dream, sprite yet soft, an amazing effect and aids the flavor tons. Slick and complex. Damn, like the Brueghel painting I could drink this by the tankard on a Fall night. Can we get more unblended lambics, please? A fascinating experience as the lack of barrel blending makes a for a clear and singular flavor profile.

Siiderimäinen, samea ulkonäkö, ei vaahtoa tai kuplia. Maku aluksi miedon hapan, happamoituu jälkimakua kohden. Katkeruus selvemmin alun maussa; jälkimaussa jää taka-alalle.

Bottle 0.75l from Marlou Zonhoven. Pours an orange with no head and actually no carbonation. Looks like cider or aged white wine. Aroma is tart, acidic, vinegar. Taste is at first very sour and intense. After some time it gets much more balanced between vinegary sourness, apples, grapes and some bitter hints. Really like how this beer changes in the glass over time. Unique and great beer.

0,75l bottle from the 2009 vintage shared with my friend. Fruity odor with some tart feelings. Clear, deep golden color without any foam. Very beautiful in its style, esspecially the color! Fruity and deliciously sour. On the tip of the tongue I felt pure flavours of the barrel and the fruits. It reminds me to wine a little. During the swallow it reaches the back of the tongue. There comes the sour flavours. Intensive, acidulated and tart. Medium sour taste with some bitterness. It’s very silky. Slick texture, medium body, no carbonation. Dry, tart but pleasant aftertaste. Very delicious and pleasant lambic. The sour flavours are moderated and it has mature fruit flavours too. Very balanced, complex and mature lambic.

Very nice. Lots of bretta. No carbonation, obviously. Has a wine-like texture. Some sour guava and grapefruit citrus. Some hay. This is a pretty wild drink. Finishes with extreme sourness and a little bitterness. Pours clear orange. Bottle at Volo for Zwanze Day.
