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.

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.

Poured from a bottle. Holy gusher!!!!! After 1 minute of it spewing all over the place. Murky to the point that it looks like ice coffee, with a small head. Very nice aroma consisting of chocolate, fruit and wine. Medium body with a strange sour fruit flavor and a mild cardboard finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Luvystypotables (618) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Earthy aroma, with traces of wine, malt and fruit. Turbid cafe au lait colour with a fair amount of sediment. Mild taste, slightly tart, with undertones of Chardonnay, and tart apples. Creamy feel with a tart finish.

hopscotch (9100) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle... Pours hazy and golden with no head. The bouquet offers a nice level of acidity, fruitiness and funk - lemon peel, leather and cherry SweeTart with a whisper of vanilla. Medium-bodied and watery with trace carbonation. The flavor and finish are watery and thin with a light tanginess. Enjoyable and refreshing, although unspectacular. Bottle shared by biggsbowler!

DialSquare (2619) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Rating #2500: bottle (2013) from Savor Growl. Gold pour with thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of funky brett, cider, dusty. Tastes are on the sweet side with lemon, green apple, zesty, little oak, grape, slight vinegar. Light to moderate sourness. Texture is slick thin to medium with just a tingle of carbonation late. Little dry in the finish.

bytemesis (3094) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle thanks to RJ5020, 2011 vintage - thanks! Pours hazy butterscotch, small white head, fizzy and disispates quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma is funky, basement must, horse blanket, very oaky, light lemon. Flavor is light plus tart, oaky, lightly funky - less than the nose would have indicated, a bit of fruitiness, perhaps white grape. Light body, sharp carbonation. Some lingering acidity. This is a pretty nice beer.

Mildly hazy light orange. Citrusy orange fruit and very tart sour aroma. Very sour, juicy yum flavor as well. More sour and tart the finish.
