gyllenbock (8247) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle, 2004 vintage. Sour aroma with hints of lemon, earth and oak. The taste was tart but not extreme in any way. Lemon, grapefruit, wood and some grass in the taste. The ending was very dry where funk was clear.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2009
375ml Bottle. 2005 Vintage. Pours hazy light amber with a bubbly white head. Nose is pleasantly tart and slightly vinous and has aromas of apples, citrus, earth and oak. Flavour is similar with elements of cider, lemon, grapefruit, earth, grass, wood and mineral water; also the sourness, while still very present, is not as extreme as some other examples of this style. Dry mouthfeel is followed by a long bitter/sour finish and the alcohol is very well hidden. A great beer, one that I would love to try after aging for ten years or more.

Stew41 (1960) - Phuket, THAILAND - OCT 19, 2009
2005 Vintage: projectile cork and massive fizz is not a great start to quite Monday night beer! Big white fizzy head that just wont quit. Orange / pricot body is slightly hazy. Nose is fresh and grapey, and plenty of mineral and tangy cut stone. Lots happening. Surprisingly soft to drink and not at all aggressive. I suspect the didgy cork might be at play as the fizz was a bit lower than expected and the flavour intensity not at 11 as I might have expected. Sour fruits and a stone fruit finish, although it all falls a bit flat. Will try another soon.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 15, 2009
2003 750 ml. Light yellowish amber pour with moderate hazyness. Aroma is quite tart and funky with heavy acidity, cider, and typical barnyard aspects. Flavor is very acidic with some fermented light fruit and sugar notes, though its mostly attenuated and dry. Quite tart, though not bracingly sour. A very slight acedic acid vinegar note in the middle, but barely noticable. Palate is effervescent, full and wholly dry. Very impressive.

Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is light malt, acidic, brett and apple. Flavour is light malt, acidic, brett, apple, and light bitter.

KyotoLefty (9645) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 2, 2009
375 ml Bottle. Deep amber with a fine, thick head. Musty, dry, citrus aroma. Lemon and a it of lactic cream. Flavor has some sweet biscuit malt initially, but the sweetness is instantly overcome by a huge dryness, with only a bit of sour, leaving an almost astringent flavor in the finish. Wildly interesting and unique. The first taste has a lot of fruit and a touch of honey as well, but it instantly vanishes. There is a cracker-like maltiness remaining, though. Very interesting and complex, the most malt sweetness I have tasted in a lambic, and the most bitterness as well, though the elements do not blend together as well as in the best.

Nicko (223) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2009
Bottle courtesy of eczematic, Ratebeer tasting under the Bridge 12/9. My second lambic, much more to my liking than the faro. Sour aroma of apples and citrus. Flavour offers the expected sourness along with a fresh sweetness and a sparkling palate.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2009
A cracking, tastebud-jangling gueuze. A funky dance party. Tart, refreshing, cheesy, woody... Marmalade on acid. Zinging finish. Loved this. Comfortably the best Boon Ive had to date. (Bottle courtesy of Ecze - thanks buddy - at the Sep 2009 Drunk in the Park gathering at Milsons Point)

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2009
hazy golden pour with slight white head, fairly standard appearance. Aroma is woody, tanic, earthy, slightly musty, slight sulfur, decent tartness coming through in the aroma. Wow, really bitter! Not pleasant at all. Rubbery, tanic, bitter, bitter, bitter. Really bitter hop like finish. Very poor.
