750 ml bottle, 2004 vintage, via rudolf. Pours a clear bright gold with a thin film and small ring of white foam. Completely still carbonation visually. Aroma is lightly tart with a powdery sugar overtone. Lots of cellar funkiness in the form of musty dampness and alot of oak/woody notes. Flavor is very funky with a light tartness, almost like a light cider vinegar. A very clean and distinct oak flavor. Very approachable and alot less tart and funky than I was expecting. Finish is dry and refreshing with lots of brett. Not really sure how to "score" the mouthfeel on this. Any other beer and this would be terrible, but if you try to rate to style I can only assume that this is perfect. Completely still and somewhat thin in texture. My first, and possibly my only, taste of an Unblended Lambic. I really enjoyed this alot, and didn’t and a bit of a problem downing the whole 750 by myself. Pretty awesome, I’d love the chance to try another example.

I tried to rate this higher for its within styleness, but geez, it is so sour, I’m just not a fan. Poured with absolutely no head. The color was mildly cloudy amber orange. The aroma was straw and wild barnyard sourness. The flavor was much of the same with some vinegar coming through. I like my beers bitter, but this was funky and sour. Not my cup of tea.

Bottle. Still golden beer with little head. The aroma is slightly fruity and lightly sour and the flavour is largely sour and nothing else. Overall a disappointing beer.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2007 My god my first flat unblended lambic. Aroma gives a little sours thistles, some metallic features and roses, at the start at once at room temp wet dog has a wee say also. . Taste is floural and sour, like eating a flower bed, with a decent amount of tartness, all are very delicate. This is such a simplistic beer its a masterpiece. One of the best beers iv had this year. RERATING: One of the best beers in the world by quite a stretch. Rerating again. Whole bottle in 10 mins at duff’s house. Ah what a beer!

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Pours still with a somewhat murky blonde body. Aromas are as intense as any beer I have smelled. Nasty sweat socks, burnt rubber, horse blanket, a moldy mustiness and tons of acidity. The body was still and dry. The flavors are dominated by sourness. It is just intense. Finish is dry dry dry. Can’t say that I really enjoyed this, but it was an experience.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - APR 25, 2006
2005. Hazy orange, no head. Aorma of sour yeast, oak, vinegar, musty barn funk, and some floral and citrus undertones. Flavor is sour, vinegared oak up front, followed by some funk and a sharp floral-citrus-mint combination. Dry, sour, citrus, oak finish and aftertaste. Body is too thin, would benefit from a little carbonation, just a little. Flavor and aroma are superb.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 16, 2006
750 ml bottle. 2002 bottling. Unblended Lambic we meet at last. Still hazy golden colour. Heavy horseblanket, leather, hay, musky, dry, soft cheesy aroma. Sourness predominant in the flavour melded with dusty, yeasty, citrus, fruity, and more sour flavours. Light bodied and mouth puckering but absolute thirst quenching refreshment.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2006
A sour pour for sure, with a thickness that was unexpected. This bottle had clearly matured, an the vinegar and mustiness led the way. The back end was more grapefruit and other citrus. Not even a hint of sweetness.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 2013-09-21. Hazy dark yellow body with a tiny frothy white head. Aroma has a good amount of barnyardy funk, lightly wheaty. Flavour is pleasantly sour, relatively mild by Cantillon standards, light wood and muted barnyard funk. Sourness increases at the back of the throat, getting a little bit grabby. Average bodied palate,fairly low carbonation. 7/3/7/3/15-16 3.5+Bottle at The Only Cafe, Toronto

September 2007. Bottle @ Rudolf’s ’Sourfest’. 2006 Vintage. Headless yellow body. Grassy grainy notes to the aroma with lightly floral character and something like lemon juice/vinegar. (6+) Sharp sour bit up front but it is actually surprisingly mild the rest of the way. Lemon acidity. (6+) Average palate lacks carbonation. 6/3/6/3/12 - 3.0

2002 Vintage, rated April 2006 Tasted at Brewnosers Meeting. Lightly hazy golden body with no head. Tart/sour horse blanket aroma. Still bodied light palate. Lemon citrus juice, sourness ranges from pleasant and refreshing to mouth puckeringly intense as the glass goes on. Interesting and surprisingly accessible. 7/3/6/3/14 - 3.3
