Shared with a fellow rate beer friend. The aroma was excellent, funk,, sour, horseblanket, apple and grapefruit. . Semi-dry as well. Very nice and near the top of wild ale aromas for me. A little more sour and it would be perfect. The taste followed the aroma and again was outstanding. Sour bite from the start with good fruity balance. Ends with tart tart tongue buster. and then fades so you are ready for the next drink. Mouthfeel was excellent. Dry but not overly dry. Perfect carbonation and tart finish.

Hazed yellow, white head. Really damn good. Nice lemony sourness, lactic sour, huge dose of earthy funk, some oaky notes. Nice!

Bottle (750 ml) bought from Craftshack.

Appearance: Hazy-cloudy golden with no head and no lacing.

Aroma: Really oaky with medium spiciness, moderate to medium acetic notes, grapes and lemon.

Taste: Moderately tart with acetic notes, a lot of oak again, moderate spiciness, lemon, grapes and floral notes.

Palate: Medium body. Almost still. Oaky mouthfeel. Dry finish. A bit puckering. Lemon zest aftertaste.

Overall: Decent/good sour blond. Nice tartness, acetic presence is borderline overpowering, interesting oak character and decent drinkability considering the lack of carbonation and the acetic presence. As others have pointed though, a flat sour blond doesn’t equal to an unblended lambic.

czar (5251) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
bottle shared by tom10101, thanks buddy! pours cloudy pale golden, no head/lacing per say. lots of orchard fruitiness - peaches, apricots, but also tropical pineapple, american barrel - woody-forward with honeyed bourbony notes, pale honeyed maltiness - not getting any wheat; light acidity - citric lemons with an acetic touch; low funk if any. low carbonation, light body - oily; tart citric-spicy finish. nicely balanced but a spontaneous barrel-aged combined with loose carbonation does not suffice to call it lambic. anyhow, it was still nice!

mathieuc (1898) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Pours a hazy/dirty yellow and completely still with no head or lacing. Nose is of vinegar and slight basement funk. Taste is of vinegar, cider vinegar to be precise. Body is medium, carbonation nil and all the acetic acid tingles a little. Overall this was barely OK and certainly not a lambic.

Awesome sour peach mango and overwhelming sour tart green apple. Flavor is superb with light fruits and sourness. No hean mild to light carbonation if any at all. Mouth puckering enamel breaking tart sour lemon peel finish. Great lambic.

Bule (1087) - California, USA - MAR 28, 2015
750ml bottle of 2011 release. Pours a pale orange color without any head. Looked to be no carbonation on the pour, and yes, there is no carbonation. Some interesting flavors and nice barrel flavor. Mild sourness. But the lack of carbonation lets it down a bit.

Beautiful sour tangerines aroma. Smooth golden color light haze no head. Smooth sour transitions to a killer dry finish. Great sour beer.

Jow (2502) - New York, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle at home late night but I have no patience to keep beer I want to drink. Pours nice flat Unblended but weird yellow orange juice look as well. Nose is nice Lambic funk and bunches of citrus. Tastes of funky yeast, oranges, earth, white grapes, oak, and lemon. Palate isn’t quite the Unblended feel I love so much from style, more pulpy and citrus juice. Anyways good brew but not best Unblended in world.
