750mL bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of funky Belgian yeast, wild pitted fruits and some candied sugar. Flavour of wild pitted fruits, Belgian yeast, oak, and funky notes. Very complex with a wonderful complexity. Very unorthodox but expertly crafted. Wonderful stuff.

Thanks to forgetfu for opening this incredibly rare tick. Pours a hazy dark orange in color with a gentle, soapy white head. Nose is apricot, lemon, some band aid, and some must. Flavor is reminiscent of the nose, apricot and lemon dominate the flavor, there is some more mustiness on the back end. Mouthfeel is light, moderate to heavy acidity, carbonation is gentle, and has a moderate finish. Was a really nice beer, I think I actually liked it more than the Oude gueuze vintage ’03 we opened just before. Really want to try Crianza now. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2012

(750ml and 330ml bottles) Pours a hazy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, subtle cinnamon, oak, apple, mustiness, berries, cheese, and barnyard. Flavor of citrus, yeast, herbs, and earthiness with a dry finish. Leighton (21089) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle at Moeder Lambic during Paul’s pre-wedding beer celebration, Brussels. Pours foggy gold with a soft, white head. Grass and mild fruit in the aroma. Big, ripe mouth-puckering flavor with eye-quivering sourness, some light sugars, decent grassy bitterness, slight fruit notes. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very tart finish, like tart Warheads, with mild sweetness and tangy but sweet lemon. Very nice. More sour than some of the other sours I’ve had today. Definitely lip-puckering, if you catch my drift. Poured from the proper sour basket. Good stuff.

75 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. Rated on 4.12.2010boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Aroma is a bit odd and stale with some tart sourness, earthy notes and hints of citrus. Flavour is nice, refreshing and rather sour with earthy notes, some citron and cranberries. A successful blend.
Bottle shared at a recent tasting generously hosted by hannont... Poured golden with a moderate head. Lots of lactic and tart notes with wood and funk. Musky, earthy, lots of yeast spice and even a hint of hops. Wine/Champagne-like fruits and dryness. Tart finish. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. My farewell to Belgium for a while beer. Pale orange colour, slightly hazy, massive white shiny bubbly head. Aroma is a fruit bowl, lots of citrus, grapefruit, white wine, bit of funk, bit sour cream, something herbal, and some woody mustiness. Taste is beautiful, fruity and sour, flatly creamy with something herbal, bit vinous. Increasingly sour and tart but mellows towards the end. Quite spritzy in the mouth and texture seems to be at the same time soft and spiky. Lovely beer! sebletitje (10067) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2012
75cl bottle @ Moeder Lambic (17/02/2012), shared with ajax25g for my pre-bday beer celebration.
Couleur orangée écarlate laissant une légère brume, le tout sur un col blanc crémeux restant vivace tout au long de la dégustation.
Arôme présage un aspect poussiéreux avec un chêne/boisé qui donne un ajout agréable à un bouquet restant sur un profile cour de ferme, funk, léger houblon citronné.
En bouche, bière évolutive qui après plus d’une heure de dégustation continue d’impressionner. Palais reste sec, et poussiéreux avec un profile râpant boisé de chêne restant discret. L’alcool poussé à 8.5% laisse un palais qui se veut plus épais que sur une Cantillon habituelle. Sur la langue un picotement épicé/boisé avec un léger côté tropical/agrumes houblonné et une levure ajoutant une pointe de funk. Le chêne reste discret mais rajoute une note douce boisée sur le fini qui reste néanmoins sec et aigre.
Un vrai délice qui change tout au fil de la dégustation alternant entre aigreur, fruité, houblons, boisé, etc. Scopey (14519) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas as part of my Pre-Wedding Celebrations. It pours golden-orange, with a decent white head. The nose is surprisingly sweet - pear, apple, melon and nectarine, as well as wood, vinous notes and tartness. The taste is lemon, tart green apple, wood, white grape, red wine, eggy sourness and some residual soft fruit sweetness, with alcohol warmth in the finish. It starts of tart and balances out to slightly sweeter flavours. Great balance, a brilliant blended sour ale.
