This is not a hit you in the face sort of sour. Flat Lambic that has hints of oak, must and white wine. A great beer.

Clear light brown/orange with no head. Deep wood, dry grains and spices, flowery and a hint of dried fruits. Deep sourness but balanced with a strong woody bitterness as well. Some herbal and vegetal notes. Really good!

Hazy copper with no head. Aroma is fruit, licorice andbelgian spice. Fruity palate. Aftertaste is dry, fruity, spicy, citrus and long cereal finish. Overall: excellent! Love the sweet ending.

On tap at Erzbierschof for Zwanze Day 2014. Hazy orange color with small foam that dissipates to a ring fast. Subtler than a geuze, not as distinct. Fantastic citrus-apple taste with some hay and tartness in it. Very dry, no carbonation (as it was not blended). Really something special, as pure Lambics are not that easy to find. The missing carbonation is kinda weird, but it?s good.

rbrazell (1675) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle from Edmunds Oast. Light amber pour with essentially no head. Deep sweaty, earthy and oaky funk with notes of Granny Smith Apples and Asian pears. Flat carbonation and flavors that mimic the aroma that end on a mild citrus tartness. Super tasty.

Cant go wrong with this brewery. Sour pear and green apple aroma. Some hay and straw. A little more subdued than the Iris, but still fantastic. I love this style and this one is great

Bottle had at Kwints in Brussels, overlooking what looks to be the tower on the bottle label. 2010 sticker, March 2014 bottle date. Cool! Pours deep golden colored with no head and no real bubbles coming up. Aroma is vinous, white wine, oak, vinegar, some sugar sweetness. Flavor is honey apples, vinegar, lightly sour, funky yeast notes, a bit of buttery influence, and drinks very much like a super smooth chardonnary. No carbonation and medium bodied. This was very interesting, pretty unique, and something I’d order again in place of white wine.
