Vignale (2638) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2014
2012 Bottle from Etre Gourmet. How on earth can a blonde and a lambic end up at 11% abv?? Very little lambic or very strong blond? How ever.....cloudy deep golden with a small head. Very much like a lambic on the nose, tart, funky, barnhouse, horse blankett, lemon, fresh wood but also a little toffee.Bigger body, more sweetness and herbal bitterness than a lambic, but otherwise simular tastes but not as funky as the nose promised. Great!

Alengrin (3548) - BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2014
’Versnijbier’ of Loterbol Blond with 3 Fonteinen Lambic, a reference to an old Brabant tradition. Off-white, coarse head, orangey bronze colour. Malty, bready flavours are mixed with the tartness of the lambic, citrussy, hay, sherry, some woodiness in the finish, which otherwise ends in a dry sourishness. Quite interesting.

hallinghansen (2436) - Odense S, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle @ Dedollewaitors 14.000 celebration tasting. Unclear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma is funky, firework powder, cellar, yeast. Flavour is dry, bitter, yeast. Well balanced. I miss the funk in the flavour. But nice.

2012 Bottle from great grog, edinburgh. Hazy deep golden color, white head. Sour taste, fruits, yeast, stables. Taste is interesting sweet notes, sour apples, malty notes. It’s quite simple mix of belgian sweet ale and lambic.

seynie (259) - Tienen, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2014
Yellow amber with a small but relatively persistent top. Sour but with earth, lime peel, dried fruit, hop, some mint even. Long dry bubbly finish with all of the above

EdKing (2201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from The Bottle Shop, Bermondsey Arches on Druid Street. Hazy, deep golden amber, thin white head. Nose is funky, sour, toffee, horse blanket, lemon citrous, baked meringue, some fragrant yeast esters. Very much a limbic aroma but with extra toffee. Taste is sour, tart, crisp, funky and horse blanket, with lots of tangy cheese rind and fruity ester. Also minerally, lemon juice sour. More I’m sipping it, the more blonde ale I’m getting. Fragrant yeastiness, pale grain malt. It’s like a combination of Duval with light zingy Oude Gueze.

Torrefacto (1030) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 12, 2014
Color dorado, espuma blanca ligera. Aromas de brett., fruta ácida y ligero dulzor meloso. Cuerpo medio-bajo, inicio dulce, afrutado, acidez equilibrada y final seco. Muy rica.

Beersiveknown (4204) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle at home from Belgiuminabox
hazy burnished gold with white lacing. Banana and yeast esters with gentle sourness. Tastes of toffee, very sweet, spongecake, camp coffee, artificial sweetness. Weird.

Bosskie (620) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Light hay coloured beer, transparent with a weak head and nice carbonation. Smell is wood, flowers, alcohol and citric yeasty metallic saltiness. Sour bitter taste with subtle fruitiness and an alcoholic twang. Very astringent dry finish. Bit unbalanced on the sourness, I have trouble finding the triple. More like a saison mixed with an ipa.
