RickTheRick (543) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2015
Dorée à l’aspect embrouillé évident, aucune mousse se forme lors du versement, laissant ainsi croire que la carbonatation sera assez faible. En fait, elle est inexistante et c’est tout à fait normal pour ce type de lambic. Malgré tout, une certaine rondeur est appréciable en bouche, la texture étant un peu grasse même. L’acidité est délicate et le funk est léger. Céréales et fruits jaunes s’amalgament dans un breuvage hautement rafraîchissant au nez poussiéreux et fermier.

Warped_Silver (115) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Pours dark yellow and hazy. Aroma of mild funk grass and floral. Muted compared to most cantillon. Taste of oak predominance. Mildly floral citrus, grapefruit, good but blunted. Thin mouthfeel. Overall ok. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Mikkeller Viktoriagade. Hazy golden liquid with a small white head. Aroma of lemon, white pepper, apples, bread and red berries. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of lemons, white pepper, apples, apple skin, funk and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Really nice.

750ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 27-12-2014.
Labeled as "Lambic Bio 2011". Bottled 6 October 2014.
Pours hazy deep golden with little vanishing white head. No lacing. Tart, grapy aromas. Light body, average carbonation, some crispy texture taht turns oily so quick. Taste is quite tart, a bit liveless, grapy, astrigent. Quite peculiar and enjoyable.

Zlotta (205) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2014
0,75 l bottle on Christmas Eve (bottled 6/10/2014). Slightly hazy, pale orange-yellow with almost no head. Only some small white bubbles that disappear quickly. Aroma of fermented apples and citrus. Sourish taste of fermented apples and citrus. Nice but not as good as expected. Medium sour aftertaste and a slightly tart finish. Thin body, fizzy mouthfeel, no carbonation. My first lambic which left me quite disappointed. I expected the aroma and taste to be more complex and intense. Still a nice beer but just too simple.

MotherBrother (777) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2014
Pours slightly hazy light amber, with no head. Aroma has citrus, slight horse blanket, earthy, wet hay. Taste is a tad sour, but nothing crazy.. average bodied, with slightly fizzy carbonation. but definitely less fizzy than the regular bio lambic.
