UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 Bottled. Vintage 2001. Golden coloured. Nice aroma of grapefruit and wooden cask. Sour, woody and fruity flavour. Very complex. No carbonation of course. [Rating: 4.7]. Vintage 1983, tasted Fall 2004. This was one of the greatest beer experiences I have ever had. This incredibly complex beer had turned even more complex. There was still loads of wood, grapefruit, citrus, acidity and the classic lambic elements, but also some really pleasant maturity notes. Unblended lambic must be the very best beer style to age. [Rating 5.0].

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!

The perfect beer. I hope that people who don’t understand lambics stop pulling the average rating of this fantastic liquid down. A stinky, deep, ineffable beauty of a beer.

nicola_ciccone (10) - Roma, ITALY - APR 15, 2011
Colore arancio lucido senza alcuna schiuma. Aroma di pesca, tagliente, formaggio salato, limone, e legnoso. Medio corpo con un palato ricco, denso, ma ancora soavemente calmo e liscio. Termina con note di cedro, sentori astringenti e legnosi. Tutte le note acidule in questa birra arrivano nel finale, con un tonfo enorme che si avverte nella mascella. Questa è una lambic impressionante.

Lambic Bio 2007. Oh... my... god. The layers of complexity in here are incredible. Tart, funky sourness, then buttery sweetness, apricot, peach, the classic horse blanket notes... it’s amazing. This is so beautiful it’s ridiculous. And it looks like butter beer from Harry Potter. Winning.

Draught @ The Moan & Dove, as well as bottled: Pours a golden onion skinned liquor hue. Great stinky funk nose, band-aid, ribber band, horse blanket, sour funk yo. We need the funk, gotta have the funk. This is near perfection as far as I am concerned. This is lambic what it is all about. Draught version is also quite delicous. Is there anything better than Cantillon?

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2010 Bottled in 1999. Absolutely flat beer. Strong aroma of oak, apple, honey and grapes. Only moderately sour taste with (again) honey, apple and grapes. I also found banana and citrus fruit. A wine-like beer, very complex and challenging. With every sip you discover more tastes and aroma’s. Only one ’weakness’. It could do with a bit more body. One of the best beers I have ever tasted. 2002 bottle, tasted in march 2010. Corked bottle. Orange blonde color. Ripe mango, grapefruit, lemon and canned peach in the aroma. Sour with hardly any carbon. Oak, canned peach and grapefruit in the flavor, lingering on in the aftertaste. Nectar!

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2003 1999 edition!!!!!!Pretty good, extremely bitter/sour/acid nose and palate. Absolutely no head, tried to pour it from a high distance, but still, no head!!!! Very interesting, very sour, and very stinky barnyard character, pretty mental beer, but amazingly good.(4.4) Re-rate: sublime. seriously juicy, sour stinky lambic, this is much better than my previous rating (above). Really well balanced aswell, nothing felt out of place. Nice sour attack on the tongue, really dry aswell, left me wanting more after every sip (draught- GBBF 03')
