3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 7/9/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Lush Roscoe in early 2010. Pours hazy orange with an average, fizzy white head that quickly recedes to very thin lace. The nose is really classic, complex gueuze, with plenty of lemon, white wine vinegar, funk, and a touch of popcorn and vanilla oak. The flavor has all of the same qualities as the nose, and is nicely sour, but lacks a bit of the depth and complexity that make up an absolutely top tier gueuze. The body is medium and tannic with average, but stinging carbonation, and a long sour lemon and white wine vinegar finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). From Scott, thanks! Clear straw color with a small quickly diminishing white head and no lacing. Aroma is of barnyard, honeyed cereals, light sweetness, lemon and light acetic notes. Taste is moderately sweet for the style with honeyed cereals, wood, barnyard, acetic notes and lemon. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Way better than the Wambeek/De Troch version. The carbonation definitely help. Not that much complex, but not dull either. Enjoyable. Average to good Gueuze.

Thanks to tom10101 for sharing! Pours a slightly hazy golden with some head but unfortunately no lacing. Aroma is funky/barnyardy and cheesy in a more pleasant way than its Wambeek sister. Taste is of citrus and other sour fruits, wet hay, acid but not too much. Body is light and it is really quenching. Nice!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle. Part of a tasting 11/24/2013 at Fraser’s Pub in Ann Arbor. The pour is a golden foggy orange. There is zero head, and no lace to be found. The aroma is very sour and yeasty. There is a distinct zest, perhaps grapefruit. The taste begins very sour, and tart. Not having had many lambics, I can only assume this is normal. The taste does seem to fade a little to the sweet side, and finishes very quickly. There is no real lingering of the flavor at all.

Tap. Pours clear light golden orange, small white head, decent lacing. Aroma is sour, oaky, lemon, touch of funk. Flavor has a touch of initial sweetness, drying out fast. Medium tart, lightly funky. Oaky but with little astringence. Light body, quite nice for those who like less sweat sock in their guezes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not sure which version of Lambickx this is, but I’m guessing it’s this one cause Swoopjones below says so. On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Poured a hazy orange color, smell is faintly fruity. Very very dry mouthfeel, kinda feels like a white wine. Acidic taste but fades quickly, not overly puckering sour.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Clear yellow color, with a small, bubbly head. The aroma is white grapes, minerals, and cloves. The flavor is sweet, with light tartness through the finish. Very light body, watery, and a little astringent. Overall, this is a weak, and fairly flavorless lambic.
