COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlike conventional ales and lagers, which are fermented by carefully cultivated strains of brewerís 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.

Craft Clerkenwell Tasting. Thanks to Paul. Hazy gold beer, little off white head. Very light and semi dry palate. Super light sourness. Touch of dried fruits. Dry finish. Fine but (and I can barely believe Iím saying this) could be more sour!

weihenweizen (1744) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Refrigerated 75 cl 2001 vintage brown bottle poured into a tulip. Pours slightly hazy yellow with medium white head. Little lacing, medium body, little carbonation, and nice tart aroma. Taste is nice tart, some oak, and some fruit. I like this even better than their blackberry lambic.

Theydon_Bois (8743) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle split at Craft Clerko, big thanks to Paul, 26/06/13. Hazed yellow blonde with no head. Nose is sour apples, tarte fruits, lemon rind, woody notes, musty, tangy orchard fruit and light smoke. Taste comprises bitter lemon scrapings, funk, grass, musty fence postm apple skins, tarte white grapes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, tarte fruit finish. Solid enough affair.

jackl (4645) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle thanks to Paul. The pourís gold with a small head. The nose is golden syrup, some buttered brioche. White grape. Hints of brett, dried cheese. Some lemon. The taste is more mild brett. Some lemon and cantaloupe smoothie. Only moderately tart. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, very easy drinking. Nice.

Bacterial (1585) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle via 2013 Summer Secret Santa. This bottle leaked just a little (probably just an oz or two) during shipping and made only the slightest hiss of CO2 when I took the cap off. Low carbonation, as expected. Hazy orange pour. Great nose, grapes, melon and citrus. Taste is nice as well. Not overly sour - Judy enough to keep things interesting - fruity, citrusy, slightly funky.

Vintage 2012. Iíve never had a lambic, and likely never will again. The taste is sour tart, with a slight sweetness hint. Really itís overpowering citris/acid flavor. Itís not easy to drink, nor is it hard to drink, just gotta take small sips with breaks in between. I would assume that this is a good lambic, because itís not terrible, but itís not for me.

Leighton (11122) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - many thanks to Paul. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a creamy, white foam head. Nose holds dry dough, light yeast, lemon, mellow funk. Light sweet flavor with moldy lemon, dried pale malts, citrus rind, restrained funky tang. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Moderately dry on the finish with light tang, some hay, leather. Decent.

stumpyiliz (215) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Slightly reddish pour into tulip with pink white head. Aromas of tart bramble fruit. Taste is light Raspberry and cherry with a tart dry aftertaste. Really refreshing and crisp in flavor.

Dal9000 (185) - Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2013
2012 vintage in a 1 pint 9.4 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy pale bronze with a rapid fading foam. Starts slightly sweet with a quick change to slightly sour. I appreciate the difference in a lambic and I so wanted to like this but it's just not for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Solid american sour ale. Nice funk, it is a bit sweet, but it is also light and effervescent at times.
