Bottle late night around the campfire shared by Mike. I say around the campfire, but it was shortly after opening this that a very large man came by and told us to extinguish our fire. Immediately. I blame those fuckers who set the dumpster on fire. They ruined fires for everyone. Thanks dumpster fuckers. Anyway, this pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Big funk and cheesy notes. Medium bodied, tart and funky. Chewy and tart. Lovely. Long acid and funk. Lemony acid.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 21.04.2013, 2 year old sample handpumped directly from a portwine barrel @ the brewery on Toer de Geuze:
Big longlasting head. Aroma is so incredibly fresh, lemon, hay, apples, citrus peel, some wood and yeast. Taste is pretty sour, insanely fresh, lemon, hay, citrus peel, wood, grass and a little dried fruit. This is so easy drinking! I just can’t say how much I loved this one. It was so out of the blue, totally unexpected. Even though Timmermans regained a lot of my respect, I still wish they could just bottle this directly, instead of destroying this good shit by blending it. Even a limited edition would be better than nothing...

2 year old, draft at Timmermans, during TdG 2013. It pours hazy golden with a massive white head. The nose is wheat, light farmyard, wood and a touch of vanilla. The taste is clean tartness, lemon, sherbet, wheat, wood, mild acidity, mouth-puckering tartness and lime juice with a dry finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and moderate tartness. Smooth, yet rather sour. Pretty tasty.

2 yr sample @ Timmermans during TdG ’13. The pour’s slightly hazy gold with a pretty lively white head. The nose is butterscoth, lemon, yellow apples. Full barnyard, sheepskin, musty white grape. The taste is quite woody and assertive. Quite a bit of lip-puckering lemon. Sharp oaky finish. Soft body, smooth. Overall, pretty decent.

Dag van de Lambik @ Verzekering tegen de grote dorst. Very refreshing lambik, no carbonation. Sour and dry, some bitterness in aftertaste. Good!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed at the 2012 Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. This is an unblended Lambiek direct from the brewery. Served in 2 ounce pours.
A - SRM of 8. Pretty clear and easily seen through
S - honey and fresh cut grass. Pineapple. Chewing gum. Spearmint? For sure a minty quality to this
T - whoa. Sour bomb!! Vinegar apples and orange. Very light mint taste compared to the nose which lead me to think this was a lot more minty.
M - medium. Incredible smooth and dry finish.
O - 5/5. Pretty damn good. Nice and reshing. I ordered a 2nd one.
