3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
26th June 2013
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!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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