4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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 canít 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...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

draft @ WoSF 2012 // 18 months old // clear apple yellow, zero head // smell is sufficiently tart, tart acidic apple cider blended with lemon peel, hint of mould, almost touch booze on the nose // taste is mellow acidic apples, dash acidic cider, overall getting to reasonably tart, harsh acidic finish, lemons & touch lemon peels, briefly the body thins out very closely to the finish // completely flat, medium bodied // a nice one from a brewery that mostly focuses on crappy sweetened ones
