Unlike conventional ales and lagers, which are fermented by carefully cultivated strains of brewer’s yeasts, our award winning lambic beer is instead produced by exposing it to the wild yeasts and bacterias that are native to the Senne Valley, of Brussels, Belgium. It is this unusual process involving over a year of fermentation which gives this beer its distinctive flavor: DRY, VINOUS, and CIDERY, with a crisp sour aftertaste.

Pours a golden yellow with fizzy head. Aromas of lemony, vinous, barnyard funk. Tastes tart sour apple barnyard funk. This one was a little flat...

Nice lambic bretta with citrus and some cracker. Hazy, tangy, good balance overall. Bottle shared at a tasting a while back.

Fritz123 (1472) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle share at Tom’s house. Poured a somewhat cloudy tan-orange with no head. Aroma is light cheese funk, some popping citrus like lemon and orange, hints of vinegar. The taste is fruity up front with citrus and some peach, acedic acid, light yeast funkiness on the backend. Not terribly in depth. But for a domestic lambic not bad.

Bottle pour at Travlr’s Mini Bottle Share gathering. Cloudy gold with small white head. Some funky citrus rind, notes of flora and spice. No polish. They should probably try blending this.

From a bottle at the RB DC tasting September 6. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head. Bandaid aroma. Flavors of fermented alfalfa.

Martinus (4280) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2015
Golden colour, white head. Sour aroma, diacetyl, butter, lemon rinds. Sour flavour, butter candy (those old fashioned Dutch ’yellow butter waffles’), fudge, funky notes. Finish butter candy, citrus, lemon zest. Not very complex, and a bit heavy on butter for my liking, but decent and with some balance. Not bad at all.
(from 75cl bottle @ Let’s drink all of Rich’s American beers Tasting. Thanks for sharing, omgrich!)

15/VIII/15 - 75cl bottle @ We’re drinking all of Rich’s American beers tasting - BB: n/a, 2013 vintage (2015-1063) Thanks to omgrich for sharing the bottle!

Clear pale blond beer, creamy small aery white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: bit fruity, spicy, bit dry, funky touch. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter, lemon rind, some grapefruit, funky touch. Aftertaste: lemon rind, funky, very soft, nice but not very complex. Very curious about how an Ohio brewery exposes their wort to the wild yeast and bacteria (not bacterias) from the Senne Valley. Dumped a bottle of Cantillon and a bottle of 3F in their, I suppose, except I would’ve expected a better outcome then. :p

KansaiBeerLvrs (3558) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2015
At Rich’s Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. Lambic 2013 a cloudy gold with a tart, bready and mild. The taste is oak, spice, soft bodied. An ok beer but very mild for anything calling itself a lambic.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle @ Drink Rich’s American beer, thanks to Omgrich. Anno 2013. Dorée, léger trouble, col blanc se dissipant rapidement. Arôme au bouquet rappelant un cidre de pomme, le tout sur un funk modéré et pointe de malt. Palais est sec, léger fruité, pointe de funk avec un léger fruité, le tout gardant cette impression de cidre sec. Je peine à y trouver le lien avec un lambic. Reste assez monodimensionnelle.

Frank (3596) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2015
This was a 2011 bottle sampled in June of 2015. It’s slightly cloudy orange w/ a head of fine bubbles. It is slightly grainy--corn specifically--w/ subdued tartness for the style. I am not getting much funk or phenolics just straight acidity. It’s lightly sweet, medium bodied w/ mild carbonation. There is some flight fruit character and maybe just a touch of bitterness in the finish. I don’t know that this resembles a lambic much at all but it is an OK beer at least.
