Kind gift from caesar. Hazy golden colored. Fruity nose, wood. Fruity and tart flavor, not extremely sour, but quite dry. Very refreshing.

Gravity at Bat. Amber with no head. Smell is straight up malt vinegar, you could possibly argue that it’s slightly fruity, maybe. Taste is a vinegar extravaganza with some woody oak notes kicking about. Flat and sour. Would possibly be acceptable if squirted on a bag of chips.

simont1 (529) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2015
Aroma of green apple skin, plum, horse, very vinegary. Taste is vinegary, very sour, apple skin, lemon, a bit of De Troch staple that I find in the OWA lambics as well, a perfumy spiciness. The least pleasant oude lambik i’ve tried.

ekstedt (6348) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2015
Draught at Grote Dorst, Eizeringen, Belgium. Hazy golden, no head. Fruity, mild, some notes of wood. Light to medium bodied, almost no carbonation. Dry, low to medium acidity.

Glass at In De Verzekering Tegen De Grote Dorst, the De troch 03/2014 was a honey gold with a tart lemon aroma. Med-full bodied with a slick mouthfeel. The taste is tart acidic lemon with some cork. Tasty, easy sipping.

Draft at In De Verzekering Tegen De Grote Dorst, where it was recommended to me and my company after the masses had left the premises - cheers to Kurt Panneels for this, one of the proprietors of this renowned lambic pub. Shows a few loose bubbles of air but these expectedly vanish in instants, leaving a flat, light orange golden blonde beer, clear with a fine and airy ’dust’ of yeast suspended in it. The expected estery and animalistic, rural complexity of old lambic rises up from the glass: menure but in a good way, passionfruit, fermenting mango and gooseberry, dry sherry, sour milk, wet wood, yoghurt, artisanal cider, horse sweat. Dry sour flavour, with a kind of ’sedate’ lemon zest ’zing’ to it, sour cream, smooth, very fruity, sweetish barley somewhere, soft but drying woody tannins in the finish, with strongly persisting sourness. I had to take an antacid pill after this one - and seven others - but it was worth the pain, glad I tasted this.

bartlebier (3209) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2015
5L jug (Lambiek 01/2014) from source, post TdG. Very basic and rough, but honest in line with its rural basic courtyard surroundings: dirty pediococcus funk, lactic and some acetic acid in the nose, mainly sour green apple and white balsamico in taste. Meaty mouthfeel. Bit harsh on the stomache in pure thirstquenching doses, but good sour mixer for summer radlers - which is basically De Troch’s own Chapeau brand. Serve well-chilled and to the not-so-squeamish.

Sample at WWT IV courtesy of Caesar. Thin white head. Cloudy blond pour. A little sour. Ok
