lebermilz (51) - GERMANY - MAY 5, 2015
Yellow-orange, hazy, white head. Aroma of mirabelle and brett, quite sour, unripe mirabelle. Soft carbonation. A very clean and crisp lambic without any off flavours. Very good.

MarkoNm (1138) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 5, 2015
At the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy darker golden color, topped with virtually no head to speak of. Cellary aroma, earthy with some grape notes. Taste has some sweetness in there, but characterized by a decent sourness. Not for everyone, but if you can appreciate something completely different, then quite enjoyable.

BiiruBierBeer (489) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Smell is light to moderate sourness, oak, and brett. Taste is pretty much the same with the sourness being the dominant note. Medium body, low to medium carbonation, and light foam.

Sjohnh (368) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Golden honey coloured, cloudy, with a big but quickly fading white head. Smells of sour apples and white wine vinegar. Big yeast presence too. Light body, moderate carbonation but feels zinger due to the tartness. Apples, lemon, hint of sour cherry in the taste. Nice transition from sour to woody dryness. Best sour beer I’ve had - complex and interesting.

Akiro (17) - ITALY - MAY 2, 2015
Degustata in bottiglia da 37.5 centilitri. Centopercento lambic scritto sull’etichetta e lo è anche in realtà a partire dall’aroma perfettamente disgustoso proprio come deve essere! Il pore non delude col giusto livello di acidità che si tramuta in un aroma inconfondibile al palato che ti dà la giusta spinta per bene ancora un bicchiere se non addirittura una bottiglia unica pecca è nel nostro caso la poca schiuma. Colore paglierino, opaco. Odore di straccio, chiuso, cantina e agrumi.

Alpha10 (413) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2015
2015/05/01 - On tap at Moeder Lambic in Brussels. Golden yellow colour with a head that quickly vanishes. Aroma of lemon, honey, hay and barnyard. Taste is lots of tart lemon and some mild barnyard funk. Mouthfeel is medium with mildly biting carbonation and a tart, acidic finish with a slight funk aftertaste. Love the tart crispness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,375L bottle, dated 28.11.2013 (from Wines of Galilee). Pours golden with beige head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is sour, vinegar. Flavor is sour and bitter, medicinal, citrus, lemon, somewhat spicy even. Overall: good one.

stoutjunkie (9) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2015 does not count
spruce, cheese, raisin, pale, golden, hazy, minimal head, heavily sour, very bitter, light body, thin feel, flat, astringent,. Probably a lovely beer for those who like this, but it was wasted on me unfortunately.

danielecamo (706) - ITALY - APR 29, 2015
Colore giall paglierino, poca schiuma bianca e fine che scompare rapidamente. Aroma di cantina, sudore, leggero legnoso, limone, fiori di campo. Al palato corpo leggero, lieve frizzantezza che aiuta la bevuta, di nuovo sentori di cantina, limone, acidità spiccata, fiori.
