3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2006 Vintage consumed 05/13/2009
Aroma is sour, lactic, funky and barfy. Hay, floral aspects, citrus, and a bit farty, too.
Taste is a bit sweet, some bitterness in the back of my mouth, and sourness throughout.
More in depth, it starts out with some bitter garbage and pine elements, citrus, and barnyard funk.
Finish is bitter lemon rind, with a bit of watery sourness.
I definitely get the bitter sac hoppiness in the taste and finish, and it is well integrated, if a bit intense.
Nice sour with hops.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle vintage) served in a snifter. Slightly hazy orange pour with a thick head of fizzy off-white foam that slowly settled. Slick lacing. The aroma had strong notes of funk, vinegar, lemon, and a touch of caramel. The flavor was similar to a gueze, but a bit rough around the edges. There was a nice sourness and acidity, but they seemed a little out of balance when compared to a blend. The mouthfeel was lively and highly carbonated. Very aggressive on the tongue. Decent.

Rounder body, and a wee bit more bitter than the others. Complex as always but with a sublime difference. Didn’t be one of my favourites, but after this 2000 vintage draft I might reconsider.

12/1/06: Bottle, #600 (2005 corking)
Nose is sour and nicely barnyard like with other notes of sharp Vermont cheddar. Bottle slightly bubbled once cap was removed – cork was a bit sticky. Body is an orange to salmon color accompanied by a Nilla wafer colored head. No lace. Flavors include yeast, barnyard, cheddar and must. Sour mouth-feel, dry and lovely. In memory of Wilson, may God give him a Lambic tonight.

an interesting beer that I enjoyed more than I expected. The hops a there but they are over powering. more tart than sour (which I find to be a plus). Not something I would really seek out again but I can appreciate the quality behind the product.

On tap at Capone’s, a 2004 vintage. Huge sour, earthy, funky aroma. The flavor is very sour with some floral, funk, and mineral components. Very dry and refreshing. Excellent stuff.

Hazy deep amber pour with white head. Aromas of red wine barrels, Apple cider vinegar. Vinous and tart. Not super intensely sour or brett-y, good balance. Great. Some similarities to Flanders red style.

750ml Bottle. Looks great with a slightly hazy brownish amber body and a dense, bubbly beige head that lasts all the way. Sweet, tart aroma has notes of lemon, apple cider, grapefruit, vinegar, horse blanket, grapes, sweat and caramel. Flavour is quite tart and very similar to the aroma with an emphasis on the citrus and some earthy, dusty notes. Light, sharp mouthfeel with high carbonation and a long sour and bitter finish. An excellent lambic, complex and quite easy to drink.
