AndySnow (3947) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 Bottle @ NK Saluhall. Pale golden colour with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is light, fruit, grapes. Flavour wasn’t what I expected at all. Much like a white wine. A little sour. Strong flavour of grapes.

deyholla (6849) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a bubbly white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of musty funk that is backed by a dry green grape note. Flavor starts with sour and dry green grape and is joined by a nice earthy/barnyard funk note.

NBird (402) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2012
Light mid amber, head rapidly dissipated, smells funky and fruity with some grape scent, taste- funky and fruity, green fruits and grape. A delicious lambic enjoyed with blur Brie and Serrano jamon.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep golden straw with some hazing. Decent white head hangs in there for a while. Aromas show citric acidity and just a little earthiness, Taste is dominated once again with a citrus type sourness. Medium mouthfeel. Not the best of the serioud but not too bad all the same.

gyllenbock (4951) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2012
Sample at SBWF 2012. A bit hazy orange with a medium, white head. Nice and fresh with green apples, grape, funk, yeast, brett and with a dry finish. A tasty one.

First Lambic beer to rate, so here goes nothing. I’m comparing this to Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René.... so again I’m a bit unsure about how to approach this rating. Aroma is mostly acetic, with the slightest touch of fruit. The beer appears a cloudy and a bit red, lots of carbonation bubbles, with a small head. Taste is fairly complicated. Starts off sharp and sour, turns a bit sweet, with lots of tingly sour bites throughout each sip. The after taste is mildly sour, with some apple and grape flavours. This beer has about 3 or 4 changes throughout the sip, but is constantly surrounded by sourness. Palate is light and carbonated. The acid gives a tingle to the tongue and mouth. Impressed to try a non-Belgian lambic.

gEUS (1242) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2012
375 ml bottle - pours clear golden with a steady white head, full of medium bubbles. tart aroma’s of wood, rice vinegar, and a hint of riesling wine. Light to medium body with a nice kick of freshness and a bitter dry ending (even very dry). Not bas, I miss the grapes a bit... and it’s not a real beer, right?

dfearnley (1047) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
375mL bottle to pint glass Sour aoma of grapes, lemon, lacto bacillus. Slightly cloudy light amber with a thin white head. There's a nice bitterness here but the overwhelming flavour is sour.

Skakapa (52) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2012
Fluffy froth on top of clear amber. Winey aroma and citrus. Some bitterness, tickling carbonation. Very tart.
