Also at mouder lambic. Much as M. Jackson always says, "the seduction of the presentation of Belgian brews" the unwrapping of the bottle, the basket, ooo yes. Smells bitter and of citrus fruits Flavor is sour but very dry and hoppy also. Complex. Pairs well with the dank cheese. Hops and lambik, an American beer lovers dream when traveling through Brussels. Backdoor dry but also starts dry. The middle gets lambik tartness on the tongue. Odd and excellent

Orange hazy, thin white head. Smell of funk, horse blanket, berries, light malts and wheat. Light sweet, quite tart, lemon and funk, moderate sour. Ends with a moderate bitter tail. Enjoyable

Alla spina ZBF 15. Molto elegante, profumata, frutta gialla, pesca, albicocca, acida, aspra e facile da bere nonostante la gradazione elevata.

2009 vintage. 750ml bottle thanks to Matt. Pours out a golden topped with a white head. Nose is nice dusty old wood barrel notes funk horse blanket and some citrus. Taste is as the nose with a nice barrel funk. This taste like the cantillon brewery smells like.

dnicolaescu (1104) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 17, 2015
BOTTLE 75 CL. Bold yet soft and mellow aroma. Lactic sourness, barnyard/funk, and some peachy fruitiness too. The acidity is strong but not over the top, funky, green fruit stone bitterness. And though the beer is very try, somehow it feels a bit sticky.

Andy_ (887) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2015
750 ml bottle
Hazy pale orange beer with little but persistent white head. Aroma has barnyardy sourness, citrus and sour apple. Flavor has sourness, barnyard, white grapes and wheat. Some cherries as well. Palate is quite full with quite heavy carbonation. Finish has quite heavy bitterness. Aftertaste is sour with white grapes. A crisp and refreshing summer drink, although I was expecting a bit more. Very much like gueuze.
