4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: the beer pours a cloudy golden orange color with a nice white head.
S: A light sweet malt/bread flavor to it. Otherwise, the lambic has really taken over. Nice straw and grass funk to it with lots of earth and lemon zest. A distinct wet oak aroma and a moderate tartness.
T: Light to moderate tartness with plenty of lemon and lemon zest flavors. Straw and wet grass with a light earthiness. A hint of must and oak. Not super complex, but still good.
M: Medium in body with a medium to high carbonation and a dry finish.
O: Was glad to get to try this one. A pretty interesting beer and a pretty good one, too.

Bottled@Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Hazy goldeny orange colour with a small white head. Some floaties. Aroma is sour wood, tart fruits and some quite berryish notes. Flavour is rather Cantillonish sour wood and tartness along with some nice fruityness and mild vanillaish and wooden notes. Pleasant blend.

Weinartiger Geruch mit einer gewissen Apfelsäuerlichkeit. Saurer Start. Im Mittel gewürzig bei gleichbleibendem Säurelevel. Im Abschluß dann kräftig sauer, trocken und verhalten gewürzig-nussig. Es bedarf einer Eingewöhnungszeit in der sich der Gaumen an die Säure gewöhnt - danach recht ordentlich.Test vom 13.9.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Tasted on 3/27/11 from a capped and corked 750mL bottle purchased at Binny’s South Loop. Pour cloudy yellow-orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thin lace and leaves some residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is sour and very funky with a bit of lemon, biscuit, heat, and an interesting sweet aroma as well. The flavor is super sour and funky with lemon, biscuit, vanilla, red berry, and a hint of sweetness. The body is medium with light carbonation and a long tart lemon, vanilla, and tannic finish.
