Bottle at Tom’s Lambic tasting at Craft Beer Co. - Hazy amber, creamy white head. Nose is vinegar sour, green apple, cider, bit of sugar sweetness. Taste is sweet caramel, sweet apple, white sugar, meringue. Lovely balance of sweets and sour. Sweetness reminiscent of Saison Dupont. Finish is acidic sour. My fav so far. Appley finish. Steely metallic quality.

Bottle, till 07.06.2035. Deep golden, little bit cloudy with medium frothy, but not very stable head and minimum lacing. Aromas are sour with some barnyard notes, disappearing while getting warmer and replaced by citrus, mainly grapefruit. Taste is sour with a little bit sweetness, medium body, pretty smooth mouthfeel and nice dry finish with acidic flavors. Quite high carbonated, very well balanced and refreshing - would never say it’s 8% stuff. Very good!

Vynikající lambic s tóny hroznů. Nakyslá chuť s téměř žádnou pěnou a skvělou svěžestí.

Edycja 2013. W aromacie octowo, winno - nie w jakiś przesadny sposób, delikatne nuty skórzane dobrze wkomponowane w całokształt, bardzo delikatnie przebija alkohol. W smaku przypomina nieco flandersa. Smak słodko-kwaśny, octowy, owocowy, zahaczający o wiśnie. Nieźle ułożony.

Bevuta da bottiglia. Al naso pungenti note acetiche, cappello bianco brillante, color ambra. Acidula all’assaggio con note di champagne e aroma complesso e persistente. Finale resinoso e amaricante. Una delle mie geuze preferite!

375ml bottel, Vintage 2013. Pours with a clear pale orange color and a small white head, which dissapers very quickly. The nose is fresh citurs, grapefruit-peel, old and dusty, some syrup, some yeast. Taste of sweet-sour fruits, grapefruit, oranges in the mix with some melon. Some floral hints, slightly yeasty. Nice sour-fruity fininsh.

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, citrus and brettanomyces.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with citrus and brettanomyces.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. So I just found out that I never had this beer before, while I am drinking a freaking 2012 version. Loads of sweet fruits that never forms anything distinctly, but touches some orange maybe. Lovely finish that never really gets sour. Great appearance and palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.

Bottle from BeerMill. Cloudy burnt orange with thin white head. Caramel, wood, sour fruit, funk aroma. Highly carbonated and sour mouthfeel. Grapefruit, lemon, orange, watermelon; lots of fruit and its very sour. More wood, floral and spice. A lot of gas in this. Keeps it interesting.
