Draft at Zwevegems Bierfestival. You can easily recognise the awesome Girardin in here. Lemon, little sour, lemon acid-like, nice!

(On tap @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, July 27 2015) Pours hazy orange gold with a dense lingering off white head, very lacy. Aroma has a sweet bready Belgian strong core with soft caramel, citrus, fruity esters with some peach, but also a grassy hop character. Lambic gives a fair helping of barnyard, and some oak. Flavour is tart and citrusy despite the sweeter malt core. Grapefruit, lactic to begin. Becomes very dry by the finish however with a big buildup of fresh oak planks, hop bitterness, dry leaves and musty Brett. Medium bodied with high effervescent carb. Cool blend of flavours with malt, hops and lambic funk. Better than expected, this was a really nice one.

750 ml bottle at home from notes. Pours a hazy orange golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have tart/sour citrus, funk, yogurt, lemon, oak, some acidity, effervescent mouthfeel, solid brew that meets the sour need while still being very easy to drink.

Bottle. Pours golden, with a creamy head. Aroma is tart fruity brett, with notes of oak and a nice funkiness. Full body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is tart brett and oak, with funky notes of crisp rhubarb and red currants giving a lingering sour, berry finish.

I think my favourite of the night. Pours a slightly hazy golden. Great oaky, funky, lemon, and maybe some white grape aromas. Flavours are bitter and woody...slightly sour. Just wonderfully balanced and delicious. So good.

joeneugs (4588) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 10, 2015
750 ml. bottle. It pours a hazy burnt orange color with a fizzy, off white head. Highly carbonated. The aroma is really great and almost gueuze-like with lots of candied grapefruit funk, hints of wood, hay and leather, some slightly more sour notes of stone fruit and hints of toasted grain in the background. The flavor is equally awesome with more sweet and sour grapefruit, leathery funk, citrus pith, apricot and peach notes, light herbals and toasted grains. Very funky, tart and leathery in the finish with more satisfying fruity sweetness for balance. A really spectacular blend. World class stuff.
