3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
In honor of the Belgian tasting @ statelineliquors that i missed tonight. Hints of wood, tart apple notes. Some oily, resiny aromas, woodlike with a dead carbonation but still lively, somehow. Largely tart and acidic, juicy. A real eye opener. Need to do again. wow.

Bottle at GH (student pub), Uppsala 20140822. Hazy straw with a minimal head. Aroma of old musty apples, barnyard, lactic acid, cherries. Taste is similar, with small notes of acetic acid, acetone and cyanide. There is also green apple peels, oak and vanilla tones. A bit aggressive mouthfeel.

Aroma is malts, tart/sour notes and a hint of mustiness. The flavor is apples, fruit, malts, mild sweetness and a long and very tart/dry finish.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from 2010/2011. Yeah! Absolutly Great acid Lambick. Super wytrawny i drazliwie kwaskowaty, koloru jasnego bursztyna z niewielka piana, ale na poczatku sie tworzyla i niestety znikla jak w dobrym szampanie. Kwaskowate lekko pachnace potem i skura. Ziemiste posmaki i zepsuta pomarancza. Wspaniale do panierowanej piersi z kurczaka, solidny korek glosno dal sie zdjac ale bez wystrzalu. Piwo ostrawe i drapiace w przelyk, nie polecam ludzia nie znajacym sie na rzeczy i nie rozumiejacym tej wspanialej belgijskiej starej tradycji.

2010 / 2011 tasted 2014 at Chris’s place.
Diaper funkiness drives the nose. Very Tilquin. Cheese and lemon juice. All about the funk. Enjoyable, and clearly a special beer. For me it lacks that extra something that makes Cantillon magic, but I completely see how someone else could find it even that much better.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 2012/13. Pours hazy orange with a quickly dissipating white foam leaving a lid on the surface. Aroma is fresh and old tart berries, lemon peel, vinegar, yeast, citrus and an obligatory hint of barn and hay. Taste is freshly tart backed up with a slight complex wall of malt, wood and grass. Again a moderate vinegar and tart berry tone. Ends dry and semi sour. Medium to full body, medium carbo with oily texture. Not that overly rough and tart as some lambics can be, this has an elegant complexity to it, amazing.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
75cl, one of many. This blended lambic is beautifully put together. Craftmanship of the highest standard. Pours a stunning foam head and has a different tasting character when cooled or served at room temperature. Prefer a one year old bottle. Pillowy hazy head, soft, cheese, basement aromas. Start with prominent taste and dials down to support the primal taste : sourness with a hidden sweet touch in the background, wood, dry lemon zest, barnyard... extremely balanced and full bodied! Amazing old gueuze!
