Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 Bottled. Vintage 2001. Golden coloured. Nice aroma of grapefruit and wooden cask. Sour, woody and fruity flavour. Very complex. No carbonation of course. [Rating: 4.7]. Vintage 1983, tasted Fall 2004. This was one of the greatest beer experiences I have ever had. This incredibly complex beer had turned even more complex. There was still loads of wood, grapefruit, citrus, acidity and the classic lambic elements, but also some really pleasant maturity notes. Unblended lambic must be the very best beer style to age. [Rating 5.0].

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2007 My god my first flat unblended lambic. Aroma gives a little sours thistles, some metallic features and roses, at the start at once at room temp wet dog has a wee say also. . Taste is floural and sour, like eating a flower bed, with a decent amount of tartness, all are very delicate. This is such a simplistic beer its a masterpiece. One of the best beers iv had this year. RERATING: One of the best beers in the world by quite a stretch. Rerating again. Whole bottle in 10 mins at duff’s house. Ah what a beer!

The perfect beer. I hope that people who don’t understand lambics stop pulling the average rating of this fantastic liquid down. A stinky, deep, ineffable beauty of a beer.

Colore arancio lucido senza alcuna schiuma. Aroma di pesca, tagliente, formaggio salato, limone, e legnoso. Medio corpo con un palato ricco, denso, ma ancora soavemente calmo e liscio. Termina con note di cedro, sentori astringenti e legnosi. Tutte le note acidule in questa birra arrivano nel finale, con un tonfo enorme che si avverte nella mascella. Questa è una lambic impressionante.

Lambic Bio 2007. Oh... my... god. The layers of complexity in here are incredible. Tart, funky sourness, then buttery sweetness, apricot, peach, the classic horse blanket notes... it’s amazing. This is so beautiful it’s ridiculous. And it looks like butter beer from Harry Potter. Winning.

Excellence, green apple, cherry sour cherry tart oaky goat cheese funk. Unreal balance of all the above in a wonderful example of an unblinded lambic

Love this style and brewery for sure. Green apple and sour light fruits. Light so light carbonation which made this so drinkable. Nice finish of oak and barnyard and some wet hay. Wonderful.
