3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Farmhouse Tap & Grill. Clear bright orangey with no head or lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of citric notes, funk, some minerality and hints of caramel. Taste is medium sour, good funk level, lovely minerality, not much sweetness despite the caramel notes of the aroma and citric presence. Medium body. Soft carbonation is starting to develop. Mineral and funky finish. Nice balance between funk and citric presence. Sharp and rather complex. One of the good Oud Lambiek that I have tried so far.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One year old lambic on tap at Holy Grale; had a few sips of this from my mate, Ryan. Aroma: Acidity rules out over lighter funk notes; some apple or lemon-like fruitiness hangs in there. Appearance: Clear, coppery yellow with streams of light carbonation holding up a skin of white head. Flavor: Acidity is not mouth-puckering, but it’s the most prevalent flavor here; fruit dries up a bit more and carries through to the finish, which still holds a good amount of tartness. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Had pretty high expectations, and this was quite good, but wasn’t a world beater for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Apex, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of leather, horse blanket, and citric notes - in typical unblended lambic fashion. Flavour is tart and citric, with notes of leather, light-to-medium funk, and quite tart citrus. Complex and fairly highly carbonated for an unblended lambic. More citric and tart, and less funky than most others. Really excellent.
