NordicV (1082) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2014
Dimmig gyllengul öl med smutsvitt skum. Doften har mycket syra i form av citrus men även mycket funk och kryddighet. Hittar toner som går åt rosmarin och timjan. I smaken dominerar citrustonerna och ger både sötma och en hel del syrlighet. En något annorlunda men väldigt god lambic.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from Au Nom de la Bière, Brussels
Hazy blond color with small head. Fantastic, deep aroma of yuzu, and in the background some lambic funkiness; impression of basil-pineapple icecream. Low carbonation, semi-dry mouthfeel; delicate lemon peel and yuzu flavor, not very funky, but extremely enjoyable; moderate acidity.
The flavor is not complex as the best Lambics, but the yuzu is phenomenal.

Bottled at Brewers in GBG. Pours pale yellow with a small white head. Smells and tastes smoky, citrus, very sour, a bit hay and green apples with a similar finish.

thewolf (11097) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle, bought @De Hopduvel, Gent. Pours light hazy golden yellow with no real head. Aroma has lots of lemon zest, a tad of vinegar, a touch of strawberry. Low carbonation, oily and quite dry mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of lemon, lemongrass, zesty, tart fruity, quite dry finish.

mcberko (5917) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
375mL bottle, pours an opaque cloudy orange with a small white head. Nose is extremely citric and pithy, with loads of citrus zest to the point of mouth shrinking. Flavour is extremely lemony, with loads of mouth shrinking citric acid, lemon and pithiness. Doesn’t really taste like a lambic. Just really citric, acidic and pithy. Not to my taste - too acidic and citric.

Vignale (1975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2014
Flaska på Nya Tröls. Väldigt fin flaska, gyllenfärgad, lite skum och kolsyra. Stor syrlig och frisk citrusdoft, mycket intensiv. Ganska snäll syra och massor av djupa, fruktiga, lätt skalbeska och syrliga citrussmaker med mycket zest, lite blommig, träig, citrongräs och med lite naturgummi i bakgrunden. Liknar inget jag druckit, lite citrusbål möter lambic. Mycket uppfriskande och trevlig.

gEUS (982) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2014
375 ml at home. Pours clear light golden wit no head. Speaking of an intense lime and lemon zeste nose. BAM, some lemongrass as well and ginseng notes. Immediate sour-bitter attack on the palate. Taste is a bit more repelling, too much zeste bitterness making it kind of groce for me.

Habanero (2430) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2014
Bottled. Pours golden with a mall head. Aroma of lemon. fruits, malt, barnyard and brett. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice Sour.
