Poured from a 750ml bottle (2006 vintage) and served in a flute. This lambic poured a hazy golden color with a quickly fading head of fizzy white bubbles. No lace. The aroma of the beer was made up of crab apples, white grapes, honey, oak, light citrus, and also some funky yeast. The flavor consisted of a mouth puckering sourness, followed up by apple, pear, white wine, earthy yeast, and some mild citrus notes. The mouthfeel was light, crisp, and dry with mild carbonation. Complex and enjoyable. I can’t wait to get some more!

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2008
Cloudy golden poor with a tiny head that quickly fades. Aromas of apple cider, rhubarb, unripped bananas, white wine, alcohol and herbal hops. Acid, sour, salty... Great balance and a lighter lambic compared to its other brews. Added flavors of light white wine, rhubarb and sour apples.

Lick a lemon skunk...about as enjoyable. Nothing about this beverage screams BEER!!! This is a nice golden yellow but that is where the compliments subside...SOUR, BITTER, AND FUNKY!!!

Had it from the source in Brussels, nothing better! Not overly sweet but not too bitter. Tartness is lemon in nature with a somewhat dry note. Mouthfeel is lively but not overdone. Very different beer but a must try.

Light and fruity, with big sourness and acidity over the back. Dry woody oak in the very front moves into big peach and apricot flavor. Very much that dry musty flavor or apricots at the end. A perfect thirst quenching summer beer. The sourness sits on the tongue and as it fades slowly, leaving behind apricot all over the tongue, you just crave it all over again. There is even a bit of floral hops giving off just the slightest suggestion of bitterness, which plays wonderfully with the wood and sourness. A very nice example of the style. I could drink gallons of this.

This is now one of my favorites. Sour is wonderful!!! Earthy, horsey nose with a jowl rattling sour. About as good as it gets!

dankman (255) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2008
Pours dark hay like yellow and it’s totally hazy. Smells like a clean stable, plenty of funk. It’s as sour as sucking on a lemon with a bit of sweetness, good. Finishes clean and dry. Very nice on tap.

Bouteille partagée avec des amis. Arôme: Odeur de foin, de fruit et d’agrumes. Apparence: La couleur est blonde orangée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de fruits acides avec une pointe de fromage. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. (Rating #1435)

Aroma is hay, biscuit, and funky horse. Taste is salty/mineral as all shit. Sour, ripe lemon rind (hints of lemony sweetness), So damn sour. Very yummy.
