Bottle at home, 2012 version. No head, very flat, orange pink in the color. Taske is quite funky, lemonade but with a metallic after note. A lot of oak in the after taste. Very rounded, a very drinkabel.

ctipping (1835) - Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2016
750 mL bottle. Bottled April 30, 2010. Originally reviewed 10/31/2012. Pours with a few big bubbles, but otherwise flat. Slightly hazy orange body. Nose is orange citrus. Acidic and a little musty. Very oaky. Fairly straightforward flavor. Lemony. A little bit of hay. No real funk or pepper to it. Simple, but pleasant. Sharp oaky lactic bite in the finish. An acidity lingers in the periphery, but doesnt become prominent until the very back end. Flat, but its still nice to drink, which surprises me. Light enough body to handle the lack of carbonation. Its tasty, but simple. I havent had many other straight lambics that I can compare, though, so I still think its good.

CanCrusher (1060) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - AUG 14, 2016
Bottle 0,75L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Pours slightly hazy, light amber-orange color with almost no head and no visible carbonation. Aroma is vinous, acetic, citric, green apples, herbal and funky. Taste is sour and vinous with hints of citruses and grapes. Light to medium body with flat carbonation. Interesting experience...

Kita (2093) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle, 0.75l, courtesy of Bongtribe, shared with CanCrusher. Hazy brown amber color with almost no head and carbonation. Aroma is vinous, citric, funky, herbal and woody. Tastes of refreshing citrus, green apples, grapes and honey. Light to medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Its totally flat, smooth and mild funky, just like it has to be...

750ml bottle from BottleJockey. Bottled January 25, 2016. Tasting at Brians. Pours a hazy golden with no head. Almost no carbonation. Aroma is funky, fruity, floral. Sour taste has the same notes plus some notes of hops and ascorbic. Interesting.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
0,75 @ bottleshare - Sour aroma, juicy stonefruit, minerals, white wine and grapeskins. The flavor is not very sour, but has some green apple and tealeaves. Slight vanilla in the aftertaste. The beer is very subtle and should be treated more like wine than beer.

davidezdonz (465) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUL 11, 2016
A 750ml corked and capped bottle bottled on 21st August 2015 and poured into a wine glass. It poured a very slightly cloudy golden orange colour with pretty much no head at all and very sparse lacing if any. Aromas of leather, oak, malt vinegar, dusty, chalk and funky. Maybe a hint of apricot but not really. Taste tart, sour, green apple, vinegar, lemon juice, oak and funk. Medium to light bodied with pretty much no carbonation. Overall the taste was decent and better than the aroma. However with every sip, the aroma kind of gets to me. The dusty and chalky element just wasnt my cup of tea. In addition, the complete lack of carbonation was not so good. Perhaps this particular beer is just not for me considering all the other world class Lambics that Ive tried.
