nordic (579) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle 0,375. Good example of the style. Aroma: sour, apricot, gooseberry. Taste: crisp, very fresh, fruity (hard for me to identify exactly the gooseberry). Nice one!

Erasmus_ro (2722) - Alabama, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle, 21/01/17. Pours amber orange with a small, off-white head. Aroma is very gueuze-like. Acidic, sour, bile, slight barnyard. Slight gooseberry aroma in the side. Taste is quite acidic, quite sour, some bile, the barnyard is quite behind everything. Tastes more like a gueuze than a fruit-lambic. The gooseberry hangs around in the background, giving it a slight, tangy twang, a nice twist, but is not as strong as the fruit/berry aroma in others of the Spontan-series.The gooseberries mustve been of the green variety. Very nice. Very quaffable.

Maakun (4647) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2017
Bottle 2013 vintage. Slight hazy dark golden with short lasting fizzy white head. Quite some funk, hay, white grapes, gooseberries, light lactic notes, straw, apricot skin. I already get some gooseberries in regular gueuzes often, this is quite close to a bit stronger Boon one. Some light gasoline. Medium sour and bitter with light sweetness. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

ClubGonzo (5576) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2016
Sample from bottle, shared with X random people in the Cantillon Blbr 2016 line in Copenhagen. :-) Pours a hazy golden body with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is tart gooseberries, stable funk, hay, citric peel, lactic acid and hints of cellar must, red berries and straw. Taste is stable funk, citric peel, red berries, hay, lactic acid and hints of gooseberries, wood and lemon juice. Light body, medium to high carbonation. Hard to make the gooseberries shine as always, but this one does a pretty good job of it. Complex and rather enjoyable.

bursprak (2752) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2016
Sample @ Blbr 16, from bottle. Light hazy copper pour with a small head. Notes of sour fruit, lemon, citrus, apples, berries, tart, zesty and funky.

drjoeng (1046) - SINGAPORE - AUG 6, 2016
7.7%ABV. Lambic. Tapped out amber. 10SRM. Nose has acetic and lemon juice aromas. Pretty typical of the Spontan series. Very nice fresh aromas. Inviting. There is a hint of wet straw and yogurt funk. Mouthfeel is soda like. Palate has some solid pale and wheat malt flavors with unsalted saltines, soda biscuits, wonder bread. Sour comes in on the front and is not tart but has a sour that is both less tart and longer in the palate. There is an inviting juiciness to the overall palate. Of all the spontans, this one for me was the closest to a straight lambic. Finishes clean.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle. Funky, fruity brett notes, gooseberry, white grapes, grass, hay, cork and a subtle honeyish hint. Peppery flavour, very sour. Rustic beer. Very good.
