Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - FEB 17, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2005 Hazy golden colored with no head. Woody and grapefruity aroma with strawbeery hints - very fresh and fruity. Lots of sweet strawberries on a tart and dry woody base. Soft and smooth with a sharp fruity finish. Very tasty, almost like liquid desert. Yummi.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 4, 2004
2000 edition drank in 2004: Cloudy orange yellow aroma, with a few large bubbles on the top. Super sour barnyard aroma, mixed lemons and berries. It also smells like Pez candies that burn your nose. Full, soft mouthfeel. An explosion of flavors that ends slightly sweet, sour and acidic.

rauchbier (3665) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2004
Bottled. Orangy amber, no head and low condition, almost flat. Lovely big lambic farmyard tanginess with some background fruity peardrop aromas. Mouthfilling oily leather lambic with a fruity tang that becomes slightly lemon citric and dry in the finish which leaves a long fruity metallic note in the back of the mouth. Excellent, although I never really noticed any obvious strawberry notes.

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Yellow appearance with little head. Aroma is quite sour with some musk and lemons. Flavor is lemony with some sour strawberries and apricots coming through. Less sweet than many of the more mass produced fruit lambics Ive tried. Nice work!

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2004
An apricot-orange color with a fruity/woodsy aroma and very sour strawberry flavor. Be prepared for instant sour lemon face. Enjoyable...thanks, biermonk!

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Pours a hazy cloudy amber-golden color, with a little bit of soda head retention, but fades a quickly as it came. The aroma is very evident in the pour, and smells very sour and slighty musty, with hints of grass and barnyard. Flavor is not as sour as I expected, but has some nice fruit flavors that are very tart and somewhat spicy. Easy to drink, but not the best example of a lambic, but then I am not that familiar with this style.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2004
2000: It pours a hazy golden orange color with no head but plenty of visible carbonation. HUge wafts of strawberry are evident without even bringing the glass to my nose. As the glass approaches the sour character makes itself apparent. Flavor is amzing, sour but not as sour as some I've had recently. Strawberry is very in your face and also sweet which cuts through the sour character. Mouthfeel is not as bubbly as I expected from the appearance. To date this probably my favorite Lambic although I'm not very well versed in the style.
