3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good beer, or actually not and very very far from the taste of your normal Belgium Lambic; I pours fine with a clear darker golden body and a fine white head; The aroma is alright but like said far from a normal lambic aroma, quite malty and with a strangelight spicy flowery yeasty aroma that you also find in some US Sour Ales; The body is actually not really acid, a little lactic to be found though but mostly just malty; Some old barrel aroma in the finish.

Thanks to JK for sharing. It had a hazy yellow color with a ring of white head. A funky aroma with more sour and funk in the body. A thick body and a citrus like quality to the sourness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden lambic with a thin white head. A classic pungeant and lactic aroma, tart and intense, light barnyard notes, and meaty. Quite nice. In mouth, a classy lambic with sour points, lemon juice, a bit of cork, a bit light overall but good. Bieropholie imports, BB Nov. 2007.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at ’Mondial de la Biere 2009’, Montréal, QC. Pours a very cloudy pale gold with an average size lasting white head. Aroma and flavour are yeasty, tart and citrusy along with some light spices and that barnyard quality mentioned by others -- very nice. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Very refreshing, I could drink this all day.

Aged bottle 2 years. Fluffy short white head. Very much debris. Nice lemon spice aroma. Sour taste with rather big body and some residual sweetness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
With a nod to beerbuzzmontreal, yes, it pours clear golden with a medium but diminishing white head. The aroma is interesting but there’s some stuff in there that should not be there and ain’t lambic. The spiciness strikes me as part added and part odd microbes. The flavor is tart with mild spices but ’gone off’ rather than ’oak-aged’. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and lively carbonation. It’s not a lambic.

The pour reveals a clear golden color with a medium, but diminishing white head. The aroma is interesting, there’s some barnyard, fruits, bubble-gum, there’s also a spicy presence that reminds me of ginger cookies. The flavor has mild barnyard, bubble-gum, citrus, tartness and mild spices. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and lively carbonation. It’s not a great lambic, but it’s thirst-quenching and enjoyable.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin head. Aromas are citrus with caramel and some woody notes. Fairly yeast. Flavours are sharp citrus with wheat and a fair degree of yeast. Dry on the finish. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (375ml). Shared with blankboy and garthicus, via trade with glouglouburp. Murky yellow, small head. Serious lemon funk with dry oak. Taste same, a little dry and almost soapy. Acidic, thick, lively mouthfeel, long dry acidic finish. Really frickin’ good!

Thanks to HogTownHarry, shared with Blankboy and I. Appearance: Lovely cloudy yellow/orange with a small head. Aroma: Lovely yeast, spice, lemons, banana skins, wheat and wood. Flavour: Tart, salty, lots of yeast, spices, I agree with JK below re a ’barnyard’ flavour. Lovely sour finish.
