PhillyCraft (3257) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2012
draft at BBF, had the CBC and flat version. The flat was from Copenhagen this year and the CBC was 4 months of carbonation. Notes of sour brett, wood, white grapes, and some other fruit. Kind of a weird flavor for me, something in there that is metallic or rusty.

CBC Version. - Bright blond colour. Initial sharp, sparkling wine like sourness. Becomes dry, woody and quite bitter in the finish.

erickok (3631) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 30, 2012
Flat version and indeed flat on appearance, with light hazy orange body. Vinegar, more in taste than aroma. Apples. Fairly moderate. Taste is rough, metallic. It’s okay. (On tap at Borefts 2012)

77ships (4031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2012
Draft @ Borefts 2012. Went for the flat version because of Belgian traditionalist bigotry motivations. Pours a hazy amber with only some lambic bubbles. Smell is rather weak musty lemon lambic, basic Spontan one line sourness. Taste is a bit deak, lightly dusty, touch white grapes, Spontan note sourness, lemon lambic, light plastic note, lightly bitter, tad grass in the back. Obviously flat, oily, enjoyable body. This is still a pretty weak imitation in my opinion, would chug regularly if sold at the same price as water. It does get the lambic itch but it is simply not very good.

Borresteijn (4733) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2012
At BBF’12, courtesy of cgarvieuk. As Jonge Spontanale (Flat). Light amber colour, no head. Aroma of sourness, metal, caramel. Flavour is bitter, old hops, metallic, tart finish. Unpleasant imo. Didn’t like it at all.

MiP (13608) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2012
Pitcher. Weak malty aroma. Hazy amber colour. Small white head. The flavour is malty with a mild earthiness and a little hop bite to finish.

Christian (11132) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2012
At Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and malt with a touch of diacetyl. Sweet malty flavour with some caramel and a touch of citrus. I’m no fan of jonge lambik - but this is worse than usual.

Scopey (6932) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2012
From a jug at CBC, May 2012. It pours slightly hazy orange-amber, with a thick white head. The nose is weak tangy citrus fruit, sweet malt, butter and a hint of sulphur/farmyard. The taste is quite odd, soapy citrus, medicinal, slightly acidic, sweet malt, some fruitiness, caramel, damp wood and butter, with a kind of tangy sweet-sour finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Odd and generally unpleasant. I could have had a refill.... I didn’t!
