Bottle. As it is an unblended three year old lambic, it doesn’t have almost any carbonation and so the hazy yellow beer has no head. Although you keep that in mind you still feel a bit disappointed by the appearance but nevertheless it gets better when we you drink...and that’s what we are here for. A very tart and sour flavor, a bit fruity with some hints of yeast. Leaves a dry and fruity finish. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2011 Bottle (2001) - thanks to Jannik. Cloudy amber - no head. Dry wood, light sourness, earthy, light grape, light citrus, nice apple juice. Too mild. Capa (3325) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Cork says 2002. Clear gold with a smallish white head. Aroma is acidic, yeast, sour, apple, oak, and funky. Sour, musty, citrus, and earthy. Finish is musty and very tart. Mouth is a bit watery. Damn’d good. My enjoyment of lambics grows with each bottle. Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Pours hazy, orange, minor head. Acidic and yeasty aroma. Fruitish smell. Solid mouth feel with an lightly sour, fruity flavor. minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Appearance of apple cider. Flatter than Keira Knightly. What a strange drink, how can this be called beer? Smells like an apple orchard, tastes of apple, grapefruit, leather, lactic acid, brett, a little bitterness (old hops?). And yet, it’s a little watery and the flavors lack concentration. This is good but a world classic? I don’t think so.

Sampled at the RBSG ’07 Grand Tasting Room, pours a hazy golden orange amber brew with a lot of carbonation and a large bubble white head that dissolves quickly. Aroma of sour fruit, yeast, some aged oak, and a touch of citrus. Taste is of tart apples, highly carbonated, light bodied and a try aftertaste. Finish is slightly acidic and then a dry aftertaste after the finish. An interesting dry, unblended lambic. Cobra (1100) - - JUL 7, 2007
750 ml. green champagne style bottle. Crowned & corked, with black foil overlay. 2006 on cork. Poured out a wildflower honey color, with no carbonation. Completely still. Aromas are of horse blanket, merlot barrels, slightly acidic also. Flavors are of Brettanomyces, Belgian funk, musty barn. Stinky cheese in the flavors as well. OK body, but needs some carbonation to bring out all the true flavors. hellomynameis (877) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Light orange infused with some yellow with a white soft foam head. Sour aroma with a bit of fruit. Some wild funky yeast notes. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 4, 2007

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2017 Bottle, 75 cl, from Systembolaget. Hazy orange golden, no head. Fruity cidery aroma with green apples and grapefruit, and some wooden notes. Light to medium bodied, almost no carbonation. Very dry and sour flavour that lingers. Very tasty.
