3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh from the brewery, served in 10 L jerrycan. Only slight hazy golden color. Aroma of barnyard, hay, still some ammonia-notes in it. Quite dry. You can note the resemblances between old and young lambik, but the older one is definitely more improved and matured. Nice one.

Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 21.04.2010
Aged approximately one and a half year
Aroma is sourish with earthy notes, lactic acid and hints of grapefruit. Flavour is sour with earthy notes, some grapefruit and lactic acid. Now I could finally taste the gastric acid typical to beers based on this Lambic. I didn’t observe it at younger samples – perhaps it evolves in a year or so.

THE Sour and Saison tasting. Growler fill from Paul - Cheers Ears! Hazy amber gold beer. No head. Light crisp palate, a little dry. Tiny bit earthy. Mellow sourness and mellow fruits, apple being most noticeable. Neutral finish. So very drinkable. This is one of the few lambics I could happily sink a few pints of.
