3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Grote Dorst, pours a clear copper with only a few bubbles of white head. Always difficult to describe the aromas of these unblended lambics, as there aren’t so many for a point of comparison. There are notes of wet cardboard, and some leather. Flavour is similar, with wet cardboard, leather and a touch of barnyard. Not the best of the unblended lambics I’ve had, but certainly drinkable. Decent stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuiske. The pour’s clear amber with a tiny white head. Still pour. The nose is of apple juice sweetness, a bit of light sugar candies. Mild citrus funk. The taste is very simple apple cider vinegar. Soft wheaty mouthfeel. A bit of sweet caramel for balance. A bit of wood. Light body, very soft on the palate. Overall, pleasant.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on draft at Grote Dorst. The pour is golden orange with a airy head that goes away immediately. The nose is sour apples, sour grapes, lemons, grass and leather. The taste is sweet and bitter, still earthy with a hint of tart. The mouthfeel is soft and smooth, the body is light and the finish is long.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
10 liter bag in box @ Ølkonsortiet. Pours a golden yellow color with a small white lace, since it has no carbonation. The aroma is of citrus and acidic notes, some tart notes, lots of hay and barnyard funk with a green apple like note. The flavor follows the nose, lightly tart, with citrus, light peach, white grapes, green apple, and lots of hay, some barnyard and old musty cellar funk. The body is light with a watery like mouth feel since it has no carbonation. Overall a really sessionable Lambic!
