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.

Bottle from Alesbymail. Vintage 2012. Clear golden without head. Aroma is sweet, malty, glue and heavy acetone. Flavor is medium sweet and extremely acidic. Dry and extremely acidic finish. I hope this wasn’t intended by the brewer. 260816

Shared BOTTLE 75 CL. Pear fruitiness, sharp acetic byte, glue. Taste: extreme acetic, glue, yet with rezidual sugars. Measured pH was 3.3. Fucking rat poison.

danlo (2481) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2016
750ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Hazy yellow-gold amber colour with no head. Aroma of vinegar, solvent, glue, woody, funk. Taste is sour, lemon rind, acetic vinegar, straw, glue, booze, wood, barnyard. Slick mouthfeel, medium bodied, low carbonation, dry sour finish. Very vinegary, seems to be past its best, quite a dissapointment.

Thanks to Mike for this bottle wich was a long time want! Je suppose que la dernière batch de cette bière fut ratée car j’ai rarement vu des reviews aussi contradictoires au sujet d’une même bière et ce sont curieusement les derniers qui semblent les plus dithyrambiques. Je refuse d’accepter qu’une bière au 33e rang dans son style puisse avoir un tel profil. Au nez, une quantité phénoménale d’acide lactique me foudroie et laisse présager une bière tout aussi sûre et sans subtilités. De vernis à ongles et de la colle contact. Aussi raffiné qu’un coup de pelle en plein visage. Même scénario en bouche. Ce n’est pas normal que les larmes me coulent sous l’effet de l’astringence et de l’acidité. Un mélange de fruits fermentés, de composte et de vinaigre. Je pourrais attaquer cette bière pendant des pages te des pages, mais je choisis de m’arrêter là et préfère croire que cette batch est ratée. J’aimerais toutefois goûter à la suivante.

MarcoDL (3980) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2016
Bottle @ ZZT 2016-1. Aroma of glue, malt and vinegar. Taste is horrible, with lots of vinegar, gluey booze, malt and some more medicinal booze. I don’t know whether this is supposed to be this way, but it’s nasty and I couldn’t even finish my small sample.

Martinus (4438) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2016
Warm golden colour, slight white head. Aroma of glue. Pure glue. Sour flavour, vinegar, aceton, glue, ethyl acetate. Finish vinegar and light citrus. Quite horrible. A shame, as I was actually looking forward to this one - I love lambic and was very happy to be able to taste what seems to be considered the best American made example in this style atm. Either this batch was off, or I really don’t understand the American palate in flat lambic. What a pity.
(from 75cL bottle shared @ ZZT 2016-1. With thanks to caesar for bringing me the bottle!!)

Bottle @ ZZT 2016-1, small sample. 2014 vintage. Thanks all for sharing! Hazy golden color, short frothy head. Horrible aroma of pure glue and aceton. Incredibly sour, acetic acid, sharp. Burns holes in your stomach. Maybe in the Brazilian favelas they love sniffing this kind of glue. Simply horrible and undrinkable.

Thank you Tinus! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ ZZT 2016-1. 2012 Vintage! Hideous label. Very hazy citrus golden. Nose is massive glue, really extreme, like sniffing scale model glue mixed with instant glue, really extreme, chemical, harsh. Taste is extreme glue, really insane, chemical to extreme, puckering, vinegar,… Thick bodied. This is ridiculous, this is some acid infection taken to an absolute extreme limit, you might as well try drinking vinegar mixed with glue. I could deal with this being straighten vinegar & might even enjoy it a bit. Glue notes are really extreme here, what infection this, it’s beyond all sanity. I don’t understand people drinking & enjoying it – this used to be #1 unblended lambiek on RB for the love of god. Currently it still stands at #23. I don’t agree with William Blake but I think that people loving & making this have taken his saying to hear: “The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom...You never know what is enough until you know what is more than enough.” This is more than enough.

Sampled from bottle @ ZZT 2016-1. Hazy murky pale yellow color, small white head. Aroma is purely glue. Taste is horrible: acidic, vinegar, undrinkable sour. Absolutely horrible. Disgusting and undrinkable.
