2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Flat orange pour with a few small bubbles on top. Really musty and oak forward with a lot of grass. No perceivable tartness, a bit of apple, and some mild funk and malt sweetness. There is a rather pronounced bitterness on the palate. A light malt sweetness, some oak, apple, and very light earthy funk. No tartness to it at all. Really odd and not terribly enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg @ Mikkeller Bar during CBC week. The pour’s deep brown raisin color with a tiny white head. The nose is vinous funk, cheese and lemon peel. I get some funky fermenting straw and armpit. There’s also light notes of sherbet and yeast. The taste is light vanilla and oaky wood. Lemon rind, butterscotch. The finish is light semi-yeasty. The body’s smooth and very nice, easy sweetness punctuated by nice strong woody flavors. Overall, very nice.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Amber with a creamy white head. Lots of wet hay, citrus fruits and of course a big, dry, oaky sourness on the tongue. A level of sourness I could easily live with, but might leave me wanting more. Very refreshing.

Aroma is light with earthy notes and some slight sourness. Flavour is sourish with farmshouse aroma, some manure, earthy notes and lactic acid. My first jonge lambic - and a nice one. And refreshing. Surprisingly, close to their oude lambic.
