COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle, 2011 vintage, thanks to fatknitty. Opaque golden beer with a medium white head. Aroma is very fruity, champagne-like, slightly sour/acidic. Taste starts out quite nice, perfectly sour and acidic, but it quickly disappears. Finish is pretty much non-existent, some very light acidity, reminds me of seltzer water. Light body, soft-moderate carbonation. I would drink it again, particularly on a hot day, but it’s a disappointment for me.

Ontbeertaster (2269) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle, pours a nice bright yellow, nice carbination, nice aroma of a sweet funk and a the body is just right a bit light. The flavour is a nice funk and tastes like a lambic. I was quite impressed with this american offering of this style

Chuckaduck (605) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Pours hazy gold-yellow with a white, bubbly but very short-lasting head. Aroma is acidic, citrus, sour, funk, vinous. Taste is acidic, vinegar, sour apple, wine-like, some wood notes. Extremely tart aftertaste. High carbonation, which is successful here. Also pretty dry. Light-bodied but full flavored. I really liked this. Very lively and tasty. Aggressive but not overpowering. Hard to find but very happy to have had.

2010 Beautiful beer! sample pour of hazed golden liquid, slight white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is great citrus, citric, light sour tartness, but really amazing. Light funky barnyard notes with a little grassiness. Flavor is amazing. Really quenching for a lambic, with beautiful citrus almost like a Berliner. Very smooth, not overly sour, and very drinkable. I could drink this one for awhile.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours darkened gold with a short, soapy white head. Aroma of slightly vinegared white wine. Taste is a little musty, almost wood aged notes... Moderately tart...lemony. Very smooth.

2011 bottle. Tart lactic lemon, musty funky, woody aroma. Hazy gold with a small white head. Tart lactic lemon, funky musty, woody flavor smoothed out with a hint of sweetness. The lactic element seems to transition more towards acetic as it warms. Light, slightly watery body, lively carbonation, dry finish,

Bottle. Vinegar, white grape, and apple aroma. Hazy golden yellow with minimal head. Sweet-tart white grape, lemon, and vinegar flavor. Very smooth. Not nearly as sour as its Belgian counterparts but pretty nice.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle at my 30th Birthday Tasting. Thanks Adam! Pours hazy deep orange, thin white head, no lacing. Nose is white pepper, persimmon, sweat, petroleum. Flavours of clean barley, salt, sweat, lots of lemon goin on here, but really not much else. I know Adam RAVED about this one, but I just don’t see it.

What an interesting brew. Thanks, Paul, for sharing. The aroma is full of tart lemon and funky barnyard musk. Basement aromas. Taste is similar with tart and roasted citrus with a funky must that can’t be denied. Very true to the style.

Mr. Unwin talked about this one nicely, and for good reason. The color was a cloudy yellow with a nice, thin white head. Lots of sour aromas with grapefruit, lemongrass and fall leaves. The taste was nice and sour as well, like biting into a lemon almost. It was clean and crisp, vinous (yeeaaaah) too with a lingering bitterness. Lemon-y flavors get more sweeter as it warms up, and makes this one solid brew.
