Special beer by Struise as a tribute to Lembeek brewers.

Tuoksussa kuivaa omenasiideriä. Ei vaahtoa eikä kuplia. Kirkas. Maku hapan, kuiva shampanja, vastaavaa Bruxellensis hiivan makua kuin lambic oluessa. Hieno tribuutti.

750 ml bottle, I guess I can thank AdamJackson? Vintage is 2011. Aroma is is Brett, barnyard mild poop notes, dusty yeast and pale grain.

The flavor is wants to have some citrus but is just intensely sour, massive pucker that hurts my taste buds. Rotten grapes, funky, bad Brett. For me it’s entirely to sour. Overly tart.

Pale orange. 2 finger fluffy head. Smells intently sour. Lots of tropical fruits. This is so sour. Coats the teeth with chalk. Tart mango and lime and lemon. Got very sour with age.

Jow (3518) - New York, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Thanks spacecoyote for the free beer. Pours dusty yellow orange with small soapy head even after all these years. Nose is puckering citrus and yeast. Tastes of grapefruit, peach, lemon peel, dough, slight musty, and gum. Puckering sour and drying finish, yum.

Huhzubendah (3543) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Review from notes. Golden body, slightly hazy, with a small collar. Aromas of funk, Belgian yeast, lemon, citrus. Green apple skins and funk in the flavor, finishing with a mild acetic kick. Nice funkiness / earthiness. Gueuze characteristics. Quite tasty.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle at home on several occasions - one particular batch was part of the SC² club. Pours light yellow with a decent head. Nice citrus aromas, a bit buttery, some floral notes as well as funky fruit notes. Medium body, well balanced between slight sourness, sweetness and dry finish.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
Struise’s tribute to the lambic culture, fermented with Brettanomyces bruxellensis and Pediococcus cerevisae, two of the most essential microbes ’used’ in lambic. A blonde, hazy beer with instable, loose head and an aroma which indeed strongly reminds of lambic, lemon, vinegar, soft bready malts, estery fruitiness; taste is somewhere in between a top-fermented blond Belgian and an authentic lambic or geuze, with funkiness, tartness and complexity, but also spicy and soft malty flavours, with a long and complex finish with drying sourishness. Very interesting and very thirst-quenching, great sour beer, but not quite an actual lambic.

zimbo (907) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2014
7 year old bottle. Maltier nose than the bourbon barrel version. Mustier nose, sour but pure and quite beautiful. Deep fruit and so so fresh and delicate after all this time.
