3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On tap as "Lindemans Flat Lambic, 5.5%" @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Oct 30 2015) This seemed to be oude lambik on character despite having a fair bit of carb, maybe gas mix from the draft setup as that’s what it felt like. Poured a lightly hazy medium orange with a small white lingering head and some spotty lace. Aroma has a sweet caramel core, sulfurous wet forest floor funk, lemon and orange, oak is woody but still somehow fresh, with lots of cut grass and leaves. The palate has berries, orange, lemon, green apple, light cider vinegar, a bit of lactic yoghurt builds later on. Lots of oak and even light vanilla in the finish. Funk is kind of weak but present, earthy barnyard character. Light to medium body with that unusually high frothy effervescent carb, must be from the gas setup or some changes in the keg after tapping. Not a bad lambic at all, maybe a bit weak on the finish and not crazy complex or funky, but nice balance of wood, fruit and grass notes.

[9/20/15] Cask at In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst in Eizeringen. Cloudy golden. Aroma of funk, cobwebs, cellar, and a buttery touch. Rather dry flavor, sourish, with a light sweetish hint, citrus, funk, oak. Quite light-bodied. Very nice and refreshing, but still a bit too young.

Tap@tuulensuu. Golden hazy, light orange. Wheaty malty npse. Some peach, ripe pineapple. Yeastyness on nose. Tart dry finish. Pale malts, light funk, farmhouse straw. Bit dull, more horse after a white though, but overall dissapointing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Pours a hazy, opaque, light orange with a fairly large, white head. Aroma is bile and sour. Taste is sour, appleskin. Short aftertaste. Not very mouth puckering. Light with strong carbonation. Good drink, but on lambic scale not very impressive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Toer De Geuze 2015. 2 years old is what I was told. Orange with a foamy head. Weardly enough it’s containing carbonatoin. Little bit of lemon, tarty sour, misses the big taste of other lambieks I’ve had earlier this day (Timmermans, De Cam, Oud Beersel). Certainly not bad.
