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.

22oz capped and corked, thanks skyview. Cork was a bitch to get out as it broke in half and was falling apart already. Clear bright straw yellow with decent bright bigger bubble head that settles down. Bright lemon, chalky, acidic, some punky wood. Enjoyable Midwest ’lambic’

bytemesis (2927) - 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.

2011-bomber. Dark gold pour with small head. Nose of musty fruit, lacto, and citrus. Taste follows the nose with some vinous qualities. Dry sour finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Atom (1279) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle pours a slightly hazy golden/orange with a small white head. Aroma is sweet apricot and lemon with some funky musk. Pretty mild flavors, citrus and some wine barrel presence, slight funk and sourness. Enjoyable, but almost a little watered down compared to Belgium lambics, still enjoyed it!

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out wine barrels, oak, and Belgian yeast. Flavour is more like a saison, with a very feint lambic quality, some Belgian yeast, and light funk. I get what they’re trying to do, but it really isn’t a traditional lambic at all. Pretty damn awesome though for what it is. Delicious beer, despite it not being a typical lambic. Great stuff.

JBPortland (625) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle (2012 vintage) pours hazy amber with tiny head. Nose is musty sour white grape, funk, oak, lemon. Taste is acidic sour lemon-lime citrus, grape skin, wet barrel, moderate funk. Finish is sour acidic citrus, touches of subtle earthy grain, nice barrel notes, juicy golden delicious apple, lacto. Nice.
