3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Style 71 of 72. Hazy organic honey color with a small quickly diminishing white head. Aroma of old orange peels, funky yeast and a sense of the old world. Taste as with most lambics is a trait that comes after aroma and mouthfeel, specifically tartness. Yes there is flavor, a mild citrus and bread, but the initial tartness shocks the taste buds and the dry finish completes the process. This is a good beer and I appreciate the work and effort that went into it, especially the style, I just think this is an elementary lambic and it needs to up the umph in regards to funk and tartness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear light copper with no head. Aroma is tart and "minty" (not sure what I meant by that). Taste is indeed tart but also fruity/cidery. Alas it isn’t too complex. Body is lean, mouthfeel vinous. Strangely the carbonation is high, not something I would have expected from a lambic (versus a geuze). Nice but not outstanding.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(2011 vintage): Très cuiré et sauvage, des petits fruits se manifestent également. En bouche c’est typique lambic avec une touche vanillée qui fait le pont vers la sécheresse. Buvabilité sauvage.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). 2011 vintage. From Scott, thanks! Clear golden/straw color with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of leather, barnyard and light fruits. Taste is about the same with the fruits being a little more present and a touch of vanilla and spices. Light to medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Slightly vinous and dry. Good complexity. Interesting.

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!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.
