Lambic Bio 2007. Oh... my... god. The layers of complexity in here are incredible. Tart, funky sourness, then buttery sweetness, apricot, peach, the classic horse blanket notes... it’s amazing. This is so beautiful it’s ridiculous. And it looks like butter beer from Harry Potter. Winning.

koleminer20 (919) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. The 750 mL pours a hazy straw yellow color with not a whole lot of head. The aroma is pretty sour, lots of citrus sourness. There is a lot of funk also present here. Not a whole lot else going on. Maybe some apple skins, but that’s about it. The flavor is no where near as sour as the aroma might insinuate. The lemon and apple skins do kind of come through here, but it’s not really as sour as I was hoping. The mouth feel is pretty flat and oily, not much carbonation. The aftertaste is lingeringly sour and citrusy, but no where near what I was expecting. Good, but I’ve had better offerings from Cantillon

On tap at Russian River. Pours a hazy pale brown color without any head. Almost no carbonation. Mild oakiness and subtle spirit coming through.

Bottle 75cl, shared by Calisky. A golden beer without head, nose is intense on lactic and bretty light grapefruit touch. Aroma is very astringent, burnt plastic, wet paper, mushroom, something seem to be not normal for this lambic, sulfates, white wine, moist, wet wood.

mathieuc (1948) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
A fresh bottle that was bottled October 6th, 2014. Pours a slightly unclear golden with no head and no lacing. Still, just like it should be. Nose is really woody, of wet wood, cheese and light damp basement. Taste is lightly tart, fruity and oaky. Lemony. Body is light, carbonation nil and mouthfeel a bit thin but nothing I cannot forgive. It is really drinkable, even more so than I remembered. I put the rest of the bottle in a carafe and will come back to it through the evening to see how it evolves. Really nice!

Hoprider (143) - DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Pours clear golden with no head at all. The nose is mineral and tannic.. Some leathery notes a little citrus and hints of oak. The mouthfeel is where I struggle the most with this beer. Every time I try this, I’m a bit let down that it has absolutely no carbonation. The taste is seriously vinous, mineral and dry which continues in the aftertaste. Not my favorite expression..

Un très beau Lambic, concentré et complexe, idéal à la fin du repas pour se remettre la bouche à zéro.

75cl. Pours hazy yellow with no head at all. Sour, woody aroma. Nice sweet and sour flavor with notes of wood and fruits. Carbonation is flat, easy to drink.
