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.

jbruner (3780) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow gold from the shared bottle, no real head or lacing. Aroma of funky lactic sourness, slight grain. Taste follows, a hint of sweetness that covers the extreme sour. Very nice!

zizzybalubba (1749) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Sampled at GABF 2013. Golden pilsner-esque pour. Strong sour nose. The taste is an assault of pomegranate, lemon, and apple cider. Sourness lingers on the palate. An awesome beer and one of the best beers I sampled at GABF 2013.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 Shared by NobleSquirrel, 750ml bottle poured into a small La Chouffe glass. Headless dull golden pour, can’t see throught it. Aroma is a medium acetic with lemon and sweet sour. Flavor has some vinegar with a nail polish twist. Fruity vinegar American sour but not too bad or over the top, just some rough edges.

tgncc (3077) - Bellmore, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Via trade with Bmart. The aroma is wild, funk, sour lemon, sour grape. The appearance is an opaque gold/orange, thin white head, lots of carbonation bubbles. The flavor is acidic lemon, barnyard, dry red wine. The finish is sour, citrus, lingering. Medium in body, a bit creamy on the mouthfeel. Pretty nice. Nicely executed representation for this ununual style. Glad I got to try this.
