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.

Bottle at my 30th Birthday Tasting. Thanks Adam! Pours hazy deep orange, thin white head, no lacing. Nose is white pepper, persimmon, sweat, petroleum. Flavours of clean barley, salt, sweat, lots of lemon goin on here, but really not much else. I know Adam RAVED about this one, but I just don’t see it.

Pours hazy apricot with a thin eggshell head. Sour aroma is all fruit, all the time. Boldly sour flavor will make your face do aerobics! Pomme and citrus fruit, hint of sweetish malt. Texture is quite fizzy and rather firm. Go wild!

Shared at Ale Alpharetta. Nice, hazy, gold, with a thin grey ring. Lemon zest, hay, white sugar, mango, and cloves. Sweet and venous, with a great, mellow, tart character. Medium body, crisp, and clean. Overall, this is excellent. Great balance, and a fantastic flavor and body.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle shared at the End of History tasting. Aroma of lemon juice, buttery oak, and some perfume funk. Pours blond and hazy with a small wispy white head. Taste is oaked chardonay, butter, oak, lemon, and a cheesy funky finish. Nice balance of tart and funky and the oak presence is definitely an interesting presence. Makes me want to try the Gueuze again.

AirForceHops (3528) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 12, 2014
750 ml bottle thanks to Willrunforbeer for sharing this 2013 vintage. Dirty hazy gold color. Aroma is dirty socks, horse blanket, moldy oak and a trace of vinaigrette.

Flavor shows lactic sourness, old oak, dirty jock strap and straw. Tart and sour, it is what it should be. Chewy body with a very dry texture. Thanks for sharing Brian.

radarsock (1003) - Vermont, USA - OCT 11, 2014
750 mL bottle supplied by WillRunForBeer - many thanks! To long-stemmed white wine glass, it pours a partially-hazy deep orange with which a white-ringed head half a finger in length stood, Aromas od Cortland apples, denim jeans, bosc pears, farmhouse yeast, and blueberry leaves. Tastes the same with the addition of plastic, lime meat, soy beans, and white wine lees. Soft and palateable.

With Z, pours an amber orange color with no head. Nose is fruity, with a nice funky sourness and tartness. Taste is ripe fruit with deep tartness and mouth puckering sourness, dry and delicious, with a cider like tannin finish. A real nice lambic ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

Bomber. Pours an amber orange with a dissipating beige head and tart, sour, fruity aroma. Taste is tart and sour up front, fruity and wine flavors throughout along with some funk leading to a dry, tart finish. Nice lambic

Bottle at End of History tasting. You know its far along in a tasting when i look at notes in phone and my review has a lot of cursing and spelling mistakes but I was able to translate and edit for television. orange pour and nose of brett and citrus. tastes amazing of the unblended thing i can’t put my finger on. you get florals, apricot, lime, and yeast. tart and refreshing. this is a great effort.
