On tap at 4:20 bar in Rome. Copper with vague haze. Lasting white head. Sour characterful aroma. Really interesting in mouth with a mixture of wood and blue cheese. Really in teresting and really quite lovely. Alcohol makes it a little sweet I guess. But took me ages to drink just because it was interesting. TimE (6275) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 8, 2011
golden amber color. Hay, leather, apricots and strawberries. The mouth is very very sour . lots of funk and Brett going on. Apricots, earth and hay. Great sourness. nickd717 (4999) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 28, 2011
On tap at The Trappist in Oakland. Hazy golden-orangish-reddish color with basically no head. Great funky lambic aroma, earthy and musty with honey and a hint of sweaty -bals. The flavor is excellent. Funky with a good amount of malty sweetness - but not too much by any means. The blanket of the horse is evident. Medium-bodied with minimal carbonation and milder acidity. A very nice lambic, which even compared well to Cantillon beers.

Draft. Amber beer with a low cream colored head. Tart/sour aroma with malt and light earthiness. Tart/sour flavor with light acetic notes, oak, and light earth. Medium bodied. Tart/sour lingers with light acetic notes, oak, and light malt. SamGamgee (2585) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 26, 2011
10% Oude lambik? Had to give this one a try. Coming after sampling a couple stellar fruit lambics from Cantillon, the contrast was huge. Very light on carbonation a virtually no head. Deep gold appearance. Sweet aroma with honey, toffee, and complex Brett fruitiness and dusty bite. Huge body and sweetness for a lambik. There is no mistaking this for less than its strength. The acidity is there with a nice vinous touch, but the body and sweetness (toffee and honey again) almost completely obscure it. Light boon farmyard character sharpening things up but pretty mellow. Smooth stuff overall. Warming in the finish. This is like the barley wine of the lambic family. A true keeping beer. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2011
Clear copper of color. An aroma of earth, horseback, wet dog, sour, weak sweets, wood and oak. A flavor of wood, oak and dry. NosirIwont (2645) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2011
