FatPhil (18067) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2019 Tap (? Hotel Bar, Kaunas) as 'Boon Lambiek 84' (8:4:8:4:14=4.0)
Holy jesus, such a beautiful apricot aroma, with a gentle accompaniament of sourness. Gentle palate, soft carbonation, pleasant tartness. Taste also apricotty, a really mellow sourness. Very dry woodiness in the finish. God, I think this is the best tap Belgian ale I've ever had. Apricotty finish, oh, so good. Absolutely classic lambic, nails all aspects with pinpoint precision, one others should be compared to. Wow.

nathanvc (2138) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2019
UPDATED: APR 10, 2019 25 March 2019. At In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst. Shared with the lovely Anke! Presented as 'Boon Vat 84' but apparently it's regular 'Oude Lambiek'. Pours clear pale orange, minimal, off-white head. Aroma is lambic-like but quite smelly: barnyard, cow stable & fodder, wet hay & straw, farmland, cobwebs, attic, and eventually strong manure as well. Taste is only light fruity sweet, but in a wort-like, yeasty & fodder-like manner; light woody bitterness ensues, with attic, barnyard, dust, wet hay, manure & farmland popping up retronasally, a tad spicy & peppery even. Lactic sourness is there but restrainedly. Dryish, grassy hoppy finish, yeasty, woody, more barnyard & manure. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Probably one of the least pleasant pure Lambics I've tried.

carlom (247) - ITALY - FEB 9, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2019 2 anni, 6.5%. Colore dorato, schiuma praticamente assente, limpida. Al naso note acetiche e lattiche, lieviti e leggere note citriche. Al palato note acide con qualche accenno di fruttato e legno. Corpo leggero. Una birra in cui l'acidita è morbida ed abbastanza stemperata, poco strutturata ma con una bevibilità molto alta.

jjsint (4678) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2019 Tap at All Good Beer, Bermondsey. Deep gold, slightly hazy, flat. Gentle aroma with soured wine, citrus, oak, a little bit of barnyard funk. Almost a svoury note to the taste, with flavours of caramel, egg, Bit-o-Honey, whey. Just a touch of carbonation in the body.
