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. nimbleprop (8761) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2011

Thanks Brainlayer. Super hazy orange pour with a small white ring. Cantillon acetic funk with lots of nectar, bright sourness, and wood. Medium body with low carbonation. Quite a treat. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Big thanks to brainlayer for this one! Beautiful orange pour with a smallish head. Nose and flavor are marked by big vibrant fruity funk, subtle wood, yeasty dough, and a touch of musty sournness. Epic dry but nuanced palate. Balanced, drinkable, and beautifully complex. BeerandBlues2 (13823) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Bottle shared by Brian Layer. Pours clear tawny with a small, bubbly off-white head, short retention with no lacing. Aroma is caramel and toast malt, vinous, oak, spicy alcohol, dates, and earthy hops. Flavor is alcohol, oak, vinous, lactic, dates, spices, and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

750mL thanks to BrainLayer. The pour is a hazy peach with a smaller white head. Fresh peach and apricot nose with lots of dusty yeast, Brett, and mild Cantillon funk. Taste brings tart yellow apples, richer body with some residual sugar, sharp and tangy Chardonnay barrel. Very interesting but not as good as Saison de la Senne. Would like to compare this to del Borgo Duchessic and Temptation. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle shared by Brian: pours a slightly hazy deep golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some light fruity notes and tartness. Starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness with fine carbonation and plenty of puckering tart balance before a smooth and dry tart finish. True to style and enjoyable. brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - DEC 11, 2011
75 cl bottle. Amber-orange colour, big head. Oak aged character is very strong, with leathery and woddy notes and a touch of vanilla. Medium sour taste and light bitterness. Jambe-de-bois is hardly recognizable, the lambic and the oak barrel have taken over, reminds me very much of Rodenbach Grand Cru. Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle. Thanks René! Pours hazy golden colored with a nice egg white head. Aromas of funk, citrus, leather, zest, wood, eart and grass. Much lambic in the flavor - sour, dry, hints of alcohol and malt. Very tasty! thewolf (12805) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels.
Hazy orange with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma has lovely funk, citrus, clear Cantillon notes, dryness, apples, crisp maltiness. Medium carbonation, lovely fat and elegantly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is amazingly balanced, no hint of the high alcohol except in mouthfeel. Tart, fruity, oaranges, funk, apple, light lactic, horse blanket. Dry oaky with some caramel sweetness, Belgian sugar and just the mildest herbal hops character. Super dry, light bitter and oaky dry in the finish. Extremely lovely.
