wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Tasted on 10/1/13 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store. Pours clear deep, rusty bronze, with a thick, fizzy, off-white head that quickly recedes to a thin, bubbly collar of lace. The nose is dusty, dry, and tart lemon-like a lambic, with a lightly nutty hint, but lacking the depth of the best gueuze. The flavor is very similar to the nose in that it is very close to being a gueuze, but no where near sour or complex enough to be. It has the dusty dry character with a touch of lemon, but the depth and sourness fall short. The body is light with fizzy, nearly sparkling carbonation, and a medium tart finish that shows some nutty malt.

One of the best lambics I’ve ever had , the Sauternes influence gives a subtle sweetness to the lambic sourness, brilliantly balanced. Mikkeller is producing some great sours in this spontan series.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2015
(Bottle, as SpontanSauternes) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, sour nose with grapefruit, green grapes, oak wood and barnyard. Fruity, tart taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, sour green grapes, barnyard, hints of wood and a dry, tart finish with some harsh tannin flavours. Medium body, very dry. Fresh, tart and well made gueuze. Very nice.

tectactoe (3122) - Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle: 2012 vintage. Thanks, Kevin. Hazy, burnt golden & lightly amber body, lots of rising bubble steams. Soft, off-white head settles quickly to a lazy film & collar. Aroma has a huge waft of tannic oak, white wine, grape, lemon, musty earth, light herbal grass, & a touch of cotton funk. Quite tannic flavor, as expected. Sharp oak, white wine grapes, light barnyard funkiness, lemon, hints of under ripe stone fruit, & a hint of earthy, grassy bitterness towards the finish. Lingering with a heap of dry oak & old cotton blanket crittery funk. Extremely dry. As with the rest of the Spontan series that I’ve had, pretty damn enjoyable. Nice stuff.

@ Stordirren 14-11-26: stor syrlig doft av vindruvor. Smaken något lenare med drag av vindruvor. Eftersmaken tycker jag har hint av vitpeppar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Calisky (1756) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 15, 2014
Bouteille de la capsule Nancy. Couleur jaune trouble, mousse qui disparait. Nez raisin blanc fermenté, aigre, note allumette brulée, barrique neuve. Typique gueuze, mais plus subtile. Gout fruité aigre, grappe de raisin, vineux blanc, vinaigre acidulé, vieux bois, mousse. Complexe a décrire, mais c’est tout ce que j’aime. Longue fin aigre, vinaigre acidulé, brulé. Très bonne lambic!!
