Maakun (2030) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Clear orange golden with fizzy white head that leaves a nice ring of little bubbles. Lots of funk up front, hay, apple juice, champagne, light burnt rubber, grains and some dough. Nice grassy and soft flowery notes in the finish. Under medium sweet and sour with a light rubbery bitter finish. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Very nice.

750ml bottle pours out a hazy golden topped with a white head. Nose is great super buggy barnyard horse blanket notes. Taste is more of the super buggybbarnyard funk. This is great.

2011 vintage. Pours a very hazy, bright golden orange color with tangerine hues and a frothy, two finger, pillowy white head. Good retention, only slowly setting into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Musty aroma with lots of earthy barnyard character along with lactic funk, damp oak, hay, light fruit and acidic acid. Subtle acetic character but it’s not solvent-like or overly vinegary. Oak tannins along with musty bugs, horseblanket, lactic funk, grass and straw. Some light fruit in there as well, notably apple and pear complimenting the lemon acidity. The nose on this beer is pretty complex with plenty of earthy funk. Full bodied with soft carbonation and tart, puckering sourness that lingers over the barnyard/ lactic funk flavors, oaky tannins, light fruit and citrus acidity into a tart, dry finish. Very nice sour element by not harsh or overly acetic. Crisp citrus/lemon juice acidity countered by earthy oak and lactic cheesiness. Sweaty with dry, funky bugs, lemon spritz and a lingering soft acetic flavor that makes me drool for more. Very refreshing and easy to drink considering the complexity and level of sourness.

TheCametron (2171) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle brought home from Weekend Of Spontaneous Fermentation. Shared with Rachel & Nick. Pours hazy Golden Amber with a short, White head. Aroma of funky Brett and vinegar. Taste has loads of that good, good funk and some citric tartness. Unusually potent for a Geueze. I loved it.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate cork, citrus, lemon, oak, and funk. It’s a hazy dull orange with a small white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate tart citrus with a touch of sweet tarts. The finish has light-moderate lemon, cork, and oak. It?s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

CraftBeerNick (1410) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle for breakfast at Cafe Rose Red, 30th October 15. Pours with a large head, pretty carbonated, probably more than I like. Aroma, sour, lemon, funk, fresh. Taste is tart sour, lemon, slight hay. Very refreshing, quite complex. Great as it warmed up, took me an hour and a half to drink this beast. Carbonation high. Very nice

Millésime 2013 dégusté en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina. Ce lambic fut servi en accompagnement d’un magnifique souper d’agneau braisé dans un liquide à base de vin blanc, de romarin d’ail confit, de romarin et d’un fond d’agneau précieusement conservé suite à une lente cuisson en papillote. C’était magnifique. La bière elle-même est très très mousseuse, tant dans le verre que dans l’estomac. Vapeurs sèches, très boisées, peu acétiques mais quelque peu sulfureuses titillent mes narines palpitantes. En bouche le liquide me paraît sec bien que boisé à souhait. Peu agressif, court et terminant sa course sur une belle amertume en finale. Un joli substitut au vin blanc pour ce plat!
