Wow. This is an intense amazing lambiek. There is nothing sweet about this beer. It’s almost totally dry. It has the classical lambiek sourness without any sugar candy taste. This is not a beer for taste sissies. It’s a beautiful cider color. The nose is delecate with a slight hint of strawberry. The initial taste is grapefruit sour explosion that travels up your nasal sinus. The aftertaste is all strawberry. I found this in De Bierkoning in 2005. The bottle is, as far as I can tell, undated. Opened to celebrate the start of a new career.

Bottled. Hazy orange. Really sour in both aroma and flavour. Notes of some berries. Extremely fresh, dry and almost flat. Notes from a non-lambic-lover:" It smells like latrine. Could it be sulphur? Is it supposed to smell like this? It´s impossible to drink!"

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2006
translucent yellow urine color whipy white head, first smell is rotten hay and leather then some light peanut butter and very light strawberry. Light palate not much to it. Sweet flavor strawberries and cream w/ a tart finish. Odd balance of sweet & tart, not very good.

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Very strong sour fruit smell, smells like stinky. Has a decent hazy golden color, with very little head. Very sour, and very sweet and tart. Decent body. Overall, this one is quite odd.

2000 bottle thanks to Kevin. Clear amber body, no real head. Freeze-dried strawberry, pig shit, grapes, and some acid in the aroma. In the flavor there’s sour apple, the same freeze-dried strawberry, composted grapefruit rinds, and sweet grape underneath. There’s tartness in the flavor but it’s just not that enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 Thanks Kevin! 2000 vintage. The beer pours a lightly hazy copper/bronze color with a no head. The aroma is strawberries, peaches, and grapes with some notes of barnyard when you let the aroma settle in the glass. The flavor is strawberries, dehydrated strawberry seeds, and is conflictingly sweet and sour. The palate is middle of the road. 7, 3, 7, 3, 13 = 3.3

Ok, so I had this vintage again last week. PHENOMENAL! Nice barny strawberries all around. Near perfect sour palate that worked really well.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Hazy orange/gold body, not much head, just a bunch of large bubbles on one side. Strawberry syrup, caramel, peachy sweet urine aroma. Awkward sweet taste... white grape juice and concord grape skins. Kind of weird.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2006
Thanks a lot for sharing Mike! Yellow body, with no head to speak of. Looks like a white wine. Sour strawberries in the nose, with grapes, wood, and yeast.Sweet-tart strawberries, grapey, icewine-ish. Dry, smooth finish. A good beer.

bottle. 2002. clear golden with no head. the aroma is surprisingly full of strawberries considering it’s age among a woody earthiness. typical dry flavour though it’s very well counteracted by the sweet strawberries. a little bit of sweetness left in the finish. very tasty and refreshing.

Label says released in 2000, but doesn’t seem to have a date otherwise: Pour is hazy orangey amber with no head whatsoever...seems rather still...smell is horseblanket and straw with some citric tartness and a delicate wisp of strawberry...still mouthfeel, but it suits it...taste is sugary sweet at first...then it turns a little sour, but still some cloying sweetness...seems a touch syrupy, so if maybe it had some life to it that would break the syrup aspect of it up...under-rated it seems...
