4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75 cl bottle. Amber-orange colour, big head. Oak aged character is very strong, with leathery and woddy notes and a touch of vanilla. Medium sour taste and light bitterness. Jambe-de-bois is hardly recognizable, the lambic and the oak barrel have taken over, reminds me very much of Rodenbach Grand Cru.

Bottle. Thanks René! Pours hazy golden colored with a nice egg white head. Aromas of funk, citrus, leather, zest, wood, eart and grass. Much lambic in the flavor - sour, dry, hints of alcohol and malt. Very tasty!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, bought @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels.
Hazy orange with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma has lovely funk, citrus, clear Cantillon notes, dryness, apples, crisp maltiness. Medium carbonation, lovely fat and elegantly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is amazingly balanced, no hint of the high alcohol except in mouthfeel. Tart, fruity, oaranges, funk, apple, light lactic, horse blanket. Dry oaky with some caramel sweetness, Belgian sugar and just the mildest herbal hops character. Super dry, light bitter and oaky dry in the finish. Extremely lovely.

2010 Vintage/75 cl. bottle/shared@Chez Moeder Lambic: slightly hazy yellow with a white lambic head, tastes slightly acidic with sour & tart lemons, overall very zesty, getting funky in here & some barnyard, straw & young lambic, hint of lactic, aftertaste is very bitter which is lovely (which is probably the Jambe-de-Bois), great stuff

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle served in a lambic basket at Moeder Lambic Fontainas during last week’s trip to Belgium. Reviewed from notes.
Served in a De La Senne cervoise.
Pours a brilliant clear golden with a two-finger white head. Lots of lacing. The nose brings loads of apricot and fresh peach. Light lemon and some lactic acid. The fresh stone fruits really take over. The flavor doesn’t quite explode with fruit like the nose did, instead having more of an acidic presence, though the stone fruits and lemon are still there along with a bit of wheat.
The body is light with moderate carbonation. Overall, it’s fairly sour with a dry finish. The sourness on the palate is light, then it’s stronger in the finish.
In high praise, Amyliz4 and I were going back and forth trying to determine whether we preferred this or cask Fou’ Foune.

In short: A dry, tart, woody and semi-funky golden ale like no other. Great beer
How: Bottle 750ml, corked and caped. Consumed almost one year after the beer release. Shared by willblake in my hotel room, thanks a whole lot Jon.
The look: Cloudy orange body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is a bit funky, freshly cut wood with sawdust floating in the air. Taste is has some plain cookies, plenty of wood, light-medium funk, dry straws, white grapes. Overall very tart with a medium sourness and leading to a very dry finish. I really loved that beer and I also thought it was highly original. It was a capped and corked bottle that we drank in my hotel room but fortunately I’m a well-prepared person and when I travel I always carry in my pocket a corkscrew in case I need to open a corked & caged bottle and a packet of mayonnaise in case I need to fake an orgasm.

Jambe de Bois and Cantillon Lambic
Cloudy deep blond color; small head. Mild but very complex aroma: malt, plastic, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, citrus fruits. Good body, dynamic mouthfeel, given by the acidity; very good blend of the sourness from the Lambic and some residual sugars; delicate fruitness. Wonderful.
