Draught at Moeder Lambic (Fontainas) . The head gives away its youth but the complexity is already taking shape. Fresh, light, lemony acidity but still some musty funk. A great way to start an evening.

Tao at The Craft Beer Co. Pours cloudy orange amber with a nice creamy beige head leaving lace. Aroma is fruity stable cellarand dry and sour. Flavor is very nice; sour vinegar in front, middle brings forward the fruitynesss stable and some bitterness while the sourness mates with the other flavors turning to almost sweet towards the end while mixing with the saliva gushing from my cheeks. Finishes bitter and sour tart.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The first beer I ordered in Belgium. On draught at Moeder Lambic (Fontainas)
Pours a sunny yellow color, hazy, with a big very loose rocky head.
The aroma is lemony, kind of clean (at least for my experiences with Lambic up till the moment that I took these notes). The beer has some nice hay notes and a mild kind of barn-yardiness.
The flavor is lemony & yogurty, a mild lactic sourness is present and the beer is very earthy. It’s simple but still very good and enjoyable.

On draught at Cantillon. Pours a dark golden colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of lemon, horse blanket, wet cardboard and oak. Similar flavours and mildly tart with very low carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Quite dry to finish. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16/05/2012 Open Baladin Roma (handpump). Dorata, abbastanza torbida, lievissima schiuma poco persistente. Al naso lieviti selvatici, sentori di stalla, muffa e cantina, intenso agrumato con note citriche. In bocca è acida, decisa, lievemente più morbida della geuze, ma anche più lineare, semplice, manca un po’ di secchezza nel finale. Corpo medio-basso, leggermente watery, carbonazione quasi assente. Ok.

Cask at Moeder Lambic St Gilles few weeks ago from notes. I asked the owner, this is the fresh stuff. Pours golden with a small white head. Nose is earthy. Lots of old barn fragrances. Grass, hay, etc. A little funk but not much yet. Flavor is more bitter and sweet, with a tad sour. Mouthfeel is tight and crisp. Clean. Nice to get to try this early.

cask @ moeder Lambic, not sure of the age but they labeled it Jong Lambic. Citrus notes in the aroma. Pours golden blonde with little to no head. Mild funk upfront with sweet citrus notes. Very drinkable.

Ahh Really good. Thanks SJ. What was good about this?
The lemon, lime, earth, peach, melon, grass, sour , sweetness complexities all blended to perfection. Not my favorite style by any mean, but rating it purely on style, it was superb.

I am indebted to blazer06 for providing this one. Cheers, Zack! Pours a still hazy yellow. Nose is vinegar, lactic, white grape, and some yeast. Flavor is somewhat vinous and tart. FInish lingers with tart chardonnay character and vinegar-like tartness. Interesting style that I am interested in gaining experience with.

Decent lambic with a pleasing sourness that is smooth and does not overwhelm.
