This is a still lambic. Pours a light, hazy golden color. The first taste is sour and acidic, but not overpowering. After it has been in your mouth for a moment you get a flavor similar to a white burgendy. There is a bit of oak. The stillness takes a bit of getting used to, but after that it is enjoyable to drink, especially if you are a fan of sour beers.

Bottle. Thanks to Slob and Solan for sending me a bottle. Pours a cloudy golden body with no head. Aroma is of citrus and light barnyard. Flavor is lightly sour - barnyard. Small amount of citrus, a little oak presence. Full bodied, a little syrupy. This is one calming beer. I really enjoyed this.

Bonus bottle from Mgumby10. What a bonus, thanks Mike! Been a while since Ive had this one and I wish I had more. Pours a deep golden color with absolutely no head. Hardly any carbonation either. Nose is barnyard, oak, lemons. Flavor is incredibly smooth for a lambic but at the same time very sour, acidic, and damn tasty. I drank this faster than any lambic Ive had in the past. I wish this was still locally available to me. Paired great with Stroopie cookies from Holland.

Uno spettacolo al naso una varieta impressionante di sfumature ( sembra un ottimo sauvignon ) il gusto e sorprendente con un retrogusto lunghissimo dopo averla bevuta la bocca rimane di una pulizia unica e lacidit invoglia a berne ancora e ancora........

ChainGangGuy (4874) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Appearance: Pours a hazy, still golden body with a thin, white head. Smell: The cold hard fact that this smells exactly like TheBeerCellars 1978 "Gas Line" Lemonade is totally indisputable. Taste: A slight upfront sweetness layered with lemons and hay. Hints of wood and salt. Plenty of vinegary acidity on the dry, pucker-inducing finish. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Very little carbonation to speak of. Just the slightest bit oily in the mouthfeel. Drinkability: Im tellin ya, "Gas Line Lemonade".

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2007
Bottle, 75cl (2003, bottled in 2007). Hazy golden colour, no head at all. Wonderful aroma with notes of unripe apple, grapefruit & grapes. Not the most acidic flavour, rather soft for a lambic with metallic notes and a basket of fruity elements. Great mouthfeel though carbonation doesnt exist. One more bottle please.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 First rating
75 cl bottle from Systembolaget.
Im guessing its the same beer, though mines labeled "Grand Cru Bruocsella Lambic Bio 2003". Bottled 17 Jan 2007.
Very dry cork, also bottle cap on top.
A bit shady golden color, no head what so ever. Had it not been a lambic it wouldve gotten only a 2 for looks. Spritzy, sour, acidic, stable and horse blanket scent. Acidic, sour, tingly, grape skin taste, some wine and also grape fruit. Flat moutfeel, I wouldve liked to have at least a bit of co2, sadly brings it down quite a bit in my book.
Perhaps its the unusual dry cork that has messed it up somehow? Strange since its so new/fresh. Not my favourite Lambic, mostly taken down several notches due to the lack of mouthfeel.
7/3/7/1/12=3.0

Rerate
Bottle 75 cl on March 14, 2014, I got it a while back from Bierkompass. As "Cantillion Grand Cru Bruocsella Lambic Bio 2009". Bottled Oct 2012.
Clear honey golden color, small bubbly head. Fresh, acidic, some rubber, currants scent. Acidic, phenolic, rubber, apple core, ash taste. Medium mouthfeel, harsh dry bitterness.
8/3/6/3/12=3.2

Draught baby! Clear Copper orange, no head. Aromais light fruits, grapes, pears, apples. Flavor is sourness all they way with a soapy aftertaste that is so damn dry it leaves your mouth with no saliva. This beer definitely needs to breathe for at least 30 minutes, that when the fruits started to shine, grapes first then apples, pears, and more sourness. This was less sour than the gueze by far, but it still covers up much of the taste with the big tart kick that hits you first. Let this one breathe.

750ml. Ive been waiting for this one! 71 of 71!! Golden color. TBC says it smells like 1978 gas lines when he and his buddy made lemonade with real lemon + sugar. Prost! smells like an unflavored lambic, sour, tart, luscious. flavors are smooth. hroma of bandaids. Flavors are rather of tart malt.
