4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
10l Bagbox. No foam, no carbonation.
Amber coloured. Incredibly both drinkable and complex in aroma and flavour. Apple juice, old white wine, woody notes, cheese in the nose.
Plus much other stuff... Non as sour as I expected. Leaves the mouth clear to drink it again and again, so the 10 liters bagbox is the right packaging for this nectar! Lovely.

Catching up on beers from August. It was a fun trip, and I had a great time meeting all you Minnesota RBians. Thanks to Caleb for sharing this. Anyway, from notes, which read: "Amber, cherry, cheese -- nutty, totally like an aged Gouda. Tastes the same. Sweet, salty, cheesy. Slick, oily medium body. 3.3" Turns out my notes suck. This rating will stand until the next time somebody shows up with a 10L bag of lambic to share, and I can do this properly.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Caleb’s bag. yes, this beer came from a bag. A little yeast in the aroma. Smells like an aged gouda, and tastes like a salty cheese as well. Dry, but probably the least sour lambic I have ever had. This is actually very disappointing. Caleb suggested they might not use the best available beer for the Belgium in a box sales.
