samires (107) - POLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Orange colour, no head. No carbonation- flat. Plenty of citrus- lemon, orange, bit pomelo notes, green aples and some oak. There is also plenty of hay, hint of wet leather, some vinous character, bit of acetic notes, mildly sour. No carbonation, smooth, slick texture. Very nice, beverage, without sharp edges.

Terminus (3570) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle purchased at cantillon in Brussels Pours bright pale orange with a soapy small white head and some vigorous carbonation. Nose is musty lots of funk and earthy barnyard character. Flavors are tart lots of barnyard and musty notes. Very true lambic for sure. Very nice brew for this style. The wood aging really shines on this one.

Bottle at home, 2012 version. No head, very flat, orange pink in the color. Taske is quite funky, lemonade but with a metallic after note. A lot of oak in the after taste. Very rounded, a very drinkabel.

ctipping (1350) - Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2016
750 mL bottle. Bottled April 30, 2010. Originally reviewed 10/31/2012. Pours with a few big bubbles, but otherwise flat. Slightly hazy orange body. Nose is orange citrus. Acidic and a little musty. Very oaky. Fairly straightforward flavor. Lemony. A little bit of hay. No real funk or pepper to it. Simple, but pleasant. Sharp oaky lactic bite in the finish. An acidity lingers in the periphery, but doesnít become prominent until the very back end. Flat, but itís still nice to drink, which surprises me. Light enough body to handle the lack of carbonation. Itís tasty, but simple. I havenít had many other straight lambics that I can compare, though, so I still think itís good.

Bottle 0,75L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Pours slightly hazy, light amber-orange color with almost no head and no visible carbonation. Aroma is vinous, acetic, citric, green apples, herbal and funky. Taste is sour and vinous with hints of citruses and grapes. Light to medium body with flat carbonation. Interesting experience...
