3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty nice surprise seeing this on tap @ Little Delirium between an otherwise not terribly palatable beer list - 25 cl. draft - lightly hazy golden with only some lambic bubbles for head - aroma is a bit on the sweeter side lemons, some apples, dusty, light musty horseblanket, quite light - taste is rather sweet lemons, acidity is pretty low, mellow tart apples, peel, lime, light touch horseblanket - flat - this stuff is light, mellow, drinks like water - very, simple, lambic is about as simple as beer gets, quite enjoyable, blending, aging, etc. obviously means obviously a lot for the lambic plus the variations are always huge - they donít serve the good lambic draft- good lambic is for blending into weaker lambic to have a consistent quality geuze if the other lambic turns out to be of weaker quality or to make special blends - def. better than the old one I tried way back

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Kick. Slightly unclear golden body with practically no head, just a thin white film that disappears immediately. Classic funky Lambic aroma, horse blanket and fruity acid. Flavor is dry, acidic and fruity but there is also some kind of soft malt sweetness here. Itís a fine and relatively easy drinkable Lambic for the sour beer drinkers, still Iím convinced there is a good reason for blending Lambics. They tend to miss a lot of the complexity from a Geuze whatsoever. Itís sure nice to sample a few unblended once to know a little of what it is about, but the blended stuff is just more complex. Anyway this is one of the smoothest Lambics I have sampled.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Churchkey. Draft listing states "blend of Boon-brewed lambics aged 6 months in Chateauneuf-du-Pape barrels." Turbid apricot colored pour, no head whatsoever. Nose and flavor bring beautiful horseblanket and earthen funk, hay, lemon, cider vinegar, hints of vinous tannin. Flavor much of the same, with apple and lemon coming to the fore. Very light carbonation, just beyond still. Delicious.

Sample at the brewery from the brewer. THX!
APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, no head.
NOSE: very sour, barnyard, horseblanket, quite some oak, somewhat sweet.
TASTE: very sour again, rather balanced, very dry and somewhat sweet. Very nice in general for a young lambic!
