Bottle shared by Eric at GTMW line, still cant believe this is $50, seems a little overpriced, but what do I know, pours a clear gold with a thin white bubbly head, lots of bubbles through out the beer with tons of carbonation, almost like champagne, the aroma has a little bit of funk but there is quite a bit of bubbles that tingle the nose, the flavor has some sour touches at first and finishes with almost a sweetness to it, really, again, reminds me of champagne, pretty cool to try.

Lukaduke (2139) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 27, 2014
Pours a clean golden color with a huge tight bubbled white rising foam Some nice refined funk on the nose mingling with a hint of beeswax, wet oak , honey kissed malts and some stale grass. Palate is bright and lively with a heavy carbonation laying the base for a funky earthy mushroom, sour lemon, dusty barrel character. barnyard horse blanket.

Holmen2 (788) - NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Golden. Very sour aroma. Farmhouse, sweaty gym clothes. Some lime. Sour taste, which is more neutral. Same with aftertaste.

Sigmund (5024) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Shared 750 ml bottle at local tasting. Golden colour, pours fizzy with a white head. Lovely brett "farmhouse" aroma. The flavour is not quite as intense as the aroma, but still good, quite dry. Some hops the aftertaste.

Flaske med srdeles elegant etikett, delt med venner med samme diagnose som meg, april-14: pnet med champagnesmell av seremonimester Melberg: deilig farmhouse aroma og smak. Rene landbruksmuseet. Lys gylden med fint bruseskum. En fin introduksjon til lalbiekstilen.

Countbeer (4390) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized lively and quickly changing white foamy head Aromas of barn, wild yeast, rubber, farmhouse, (dried)herbs, cheese, some rope and wood. Flavours of grapes, wild yeast, light tart, light funky, light cheese, some older malts, dried herbs and barn tones. Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, light tart, wild yeast, wood, light farmhouse/barn. Low to medium carbo, creamy mouthfeel, full bodied and a light creamy light dry texture. Tasted this almost a year ago and was close to champagne... Qua yeast and carbo, after almost a year of rest, this has become like a classic Lambiek, awesome in any way! Delicious!

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Golden color, good foam- very high carbonation. Intense stable aromas, nice yeast- some sherry notes. Medium body & complexity. Good sourness & bitterness. Long lasting aftertaste. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Bottled late 2012, dont remember how old the actual lambic inside is, would assume two or three years.
Deeper yellow color than usual for a lambic, quite clear, of course, with a small, rapidly fizzling white head akin to the pour of champagne.
Cheesey, doughy, somewhat autolytic nose has some lighter green apple and limeskin notes that help brighten all this musty basement funk. A rather larger-than-Id-prefer dose of vanilla and cotton candy-like malt sweetness is notable, but its fairly tart on the end and displays a medium strength of aroma overall with no alcohol sharpness, at least.
Flavor is again oddly cheesey. Like a strange mix of malt flavored yogurt that is on the verge of going bad. Tart, bordering sour, but nowhere near the lingering well-definied malo-lactic sourness of the better/best lambics. And the mouthfeel...these somewhat loose, unfocused bubbles are doing nothing for the already sweeter-than-usual flavor, nevermind this is supposed to be a Brut champagne style beer.
A noble experiment (I guess), but none-too-successful. For $25 bucks I could see enjoying this when you wanna celebrate and dont wanna worry about stirring up sediment in an actual lambic. For $60??? Ludicrous. Im glad I tried it, but I can think of so many other real champagnes Id rather drink for that amount of money. Hell, Id rather have a Deus or an Enlightenment Brut, regardless of price.
Also, can we get a name change? Has to be one of the stupidest names for a beer. Also, the label....come on, really?
Ok, ok, Im done here.
