ClubGonzo (5469) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2016
Sample from bottle, shared with X random people in the Cantillon Blåbær 2016 line in Copenhagen. :-) Pours a hazy golden body with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is tart gooseberries, stable funk, hay, citric peel, lactic acid and hints of cellar must, red berries and straw. Taste is stable funk, citric peel, red berries, hay, lactic acid and hints of gooseberries, wood and lemon juice. Light body, medium to high carbonation. Hard to make the gooseberries shine as always, but this one does a pretty good job of it. Complex and rather enjoyable.

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - AUG 6, 2016
7.7%ABV. Lambic. Tapped out amber. 10ºSRM. Nose has acetic and lemon juice aromas. Pretty typical of the Spontan series. Very nice fresh aromas. Inviting. There is a hint of wet straw and yogurt funk. Mouthfeel is soda like. Palate has some solid pale and wheat malt flavors with unsalted saltines, soda biscuits, wonder bread. Sour comes in on the front and is not tart but has a sour that is both less tart and longer in the palate. There is an inviting juiciness to the overall palate. Of all the spontans, this one for me was the closest to a straight lambic. Finishes clean.

ciocanelu (1436) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 16, 2016
Hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma has really nice lambic funk but it feels somehow clean, fresh, not cloying at all. Taste starts sour up-front with nice fruity notes. I couldn’t put my finger on gooseberries but it has a general tart fruitiness. Finishes dry with lingering fruitiness. Medium to light body with a nice effervescence. Another nice one from the Spontan series. Funky, sour and fruity.
