Lambics are truly the “wines” of the beer world. With wine one speaks of “gout de Terroir” because the land so influences a wine’s flavor. With Lambics, one must speak of “gout de Tonneau SM“ because each cask (tonneau) produces a lambic that matures and tastes different. Blending these Tonneau is such an art that there exist independent Geuzestekkerij (blenders) who buy young Lambic then age and bottle it under their own name.

Lambickx™ is Vanberg & Famille’s brand of hand-selected and blended lambics. Every Lambic with the Lambickx™ name is made from casks personally tasted and chosen by Don Feinberg, one of the first importers of Belgian beer to America and founder of the first Belgian-only brewery in the U.S. Don chooses his Lambics for their complexity, brilliance and drinking excellence both by themselves and as exquisite accompaniments to food.

tmrmwel (2340) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2018
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow, with a tiny airy head. Aroma is tart notes of lactic acid, with fruit peel and grapes, as well as barrels, tannins and earthy bretty notes. Medium body, with almost no carbonation. Flavour is tart lactic acid, with fruit peel, berries and citrus, as well white wine barrels and earthy brett.

kramer (6989) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2018
Bottle. Pours a clear gold body with a very minimal thin head. It looks pretty well completely still. The nose is funky and slightly citrusy, with a little oak and cork. The flavor is a little bland, it’s slightly tart with a light lemony smack on the back end. Some minimal oaky dryness on the finish. There’s not a whole lot of depth or cellar character to this at all. I probably wouldn’t even have guessed that this was a legitimate lambic. Almost completely still on the tongue, just the lightest touch of carbonation. Some lingering tartness. Interesting, I liked the other version of this that I had. Bottom tier for sure. It certainly hasn’t improved with age. 3/6/6/2/12

CanIHave4Beers (4283) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 20, 2017
Bottle in the dining room Bottled year 2015.
Pours very pale with a small head and some lacing on the glass. This one is pretty carbonated for an unblended lambic with a few little bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma is woody and has a nice apple flesh character, a deep funk & a nice lemon zest character to it. Complex, funky, and inviting.

The flavor is really pretty sour and very very lemony... never really pushing the acetic realm too hard, but I don't know that it would work if it were any more sour. It's got nice mild oak tones lots of complex fruitiness & some light citrus rind bitterness. Very dry, very enjoyable.

DavidWoodruff (631) - Windsor, California, USA - MAY 22, 2017
Hazy Orange with a large, loose white head. Yeasty, sour aroma. Sour flavor with some dusty attic notes. Medium bodied with aggressive carbonation. Finish is mildly sour and quenching. As it warms up the acidy is balanced by a bit more fruitiness - an indistinct citrusy flavor.

Korcz (3388) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Delikatnie octowe, trochę siatkowej stajni. Wytrawne, mało ciała, mocno kwaśne, bardzo mocna stajnia, kwaśność w stronę witaminy C. Trochę za dużo octu. Fajne.

OldMrCrow (2448) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2017
2013 brew 2015 bottled from Jevin. Thanks!

Once we finally get the damn cork out of the bottle, we get a slight puff and a hazy straw-colored pour, decent head. Amazing, amazing aroma. Funk: massive musty cellar and pepper and old cheese, mild hints of latrine. Tart but not at all overwhelming in acidity, even at the first sip. Beautiful lemon and...what?...lambic flavors. Amply but not over-carbonated. Absolutely delightful to be once again drinking real high-end belgian lambics instead of US copies.
