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.

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.

Great funky noise, bright golden color, awesome apple undertones, and bright citrus notes all around a great lambic. highly recommend picking some up if you get a chance.

Thx! to Jason for this one. 2011 Vintage. 75 cl, bottle split @ ‘t Antwaerps Bierhuiske. Apparently made with bacteria from the Senne valley and aged in wine barrels. Bottle is whisky-style with wine bottle decorations. Pours a murky golden with only some brief white bubbles, much murkier than any Belgian counterpart. Smell is nice horseblanket, def. Belgian-style, feel familiar, quite a bit of lemon sourness, light vinegar and lactic touches, some malts,… Tate is sour lemon, tart, BE lighter horseblanket, somewhat overpowered by the lemon and lactic sourness, light yoghurt sourness, taste is a touch watery, light vinegar, malts are there, light white wine and oak,… I think this is comparable to the BE stuff, def. some lactic touches which you won’t find here. Body is much fuller than any of the local examples, some malt substance,… Probably dealt with some infections. The owner didn’t like it all that much but I did. Thx.

Really really good. This has a very nice dry finish. Tempered tartness and a lightly sweet beginning. Favor is apples, pears, floral, funk, and just tasty. Loved it.

Excellent blonde sour, strange shape bottle from an ohio State fan of mine. Creamy head, I like the carbonation even tho they are supposed to be a tad under carbonated. Ciders vinegar and predominatly green apple sour. A dry chalky finish, real easy to get used to this one!

Bottle at James’ place.Pours hazy gold with a white head. Earthy and woody, with lighter lemony citric sweetness, floral undertones, and a nice gentle acidic tartness. I had never even heard of this brewery before, but damn this is some good shit.
