MannyGoldberg (164) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Bottle at Craft Beer Co in Farringdon. 26th June 2013. Reddish orange with quite a bit of carbonation. Zero retention in the head. This is absolutely the last time I’m going to spend money on this Spontanale carry on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ComradeK (1045) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a moderate white head, which lasts well but does not leave much lacing. The aroma offers a cider-like blend of tart apple and dusty leather notes, with some sour berry notes playing through it. It is strongly sour up front, with tart apple and preserved lemon notes. These give way to a blend of funkier sourness and leathery notes in the mid-palate. Light oak and more fruity sourness make up the finish. This is not a bad lambic, although not the most complex one out there.

lusikka (6425) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013

Pours a cloudy orange amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of ripe apricot, wood, banana and grass. Flavour of caramel malts, tart citrus, ripe apricot, some metallic notes and grass. Light bodied, high carbonation and a tart citrusy finish. Way too high carbonation to be enjoyable. Decent.

Aroma is odd and stale with metal and sweat. Also some currants and orange. Flavour is rather tart with rhubarb, some metallic notes, orange, lactic acid and hints of grapefruit.

375ml bottle

Pours clear orange with a fizzy white head. Aroma of tart fruits, apricose, hints of sourness and malts. Taste is carbonated, dry and tartish with notes of fruits and mild sourness. Finish is carbonated and tart. Decent, quite easy going gueuze.

Theydon_Bois (9550) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle at home, from BOE, 09/05/13. Pours a lightly hazed golden with a frothy off white head, plenty of carbonation visible. Nose is sharp apple, wood, faint lemon sherbet, light metallic tones. Taste comprises tarte orchard fruits, light funk, barnyard qualities, lightly soured grape skins, tarte apple. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, not overly dry in the finish. Ok lambic but nothing I’d return to when better cheaper options are readily available.

Bottle. Golden beer with a fizzy head. The aroma is mildly sour and the flavour is more so sour with a fruity dryness. Overall an average sour ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
