GlasgowTAD (1746) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow with a shortlived and extremely bubbly head. Aroma is heavy on the peat - smells like a Laphroaig, I imagine the isle of Islay smells like this beer does. Im wondering if I should plant something in this or drink it. Moving on to the attributes of taste - heavy Islay whisky, some grapes, a little of sweet mandarin, some lime and a kick of heat at the end. This is quite phenomenal and not as one dimensional as the aroma would suggest. Pleasantly surprised by the depth and uniqueness.

Martinus (4591) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2014
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of smoke, peat, sausage, lots of smoke, band aid. Smoky flavour, light sour, peat. Finish peat and smoke. Quite enjoyable! (Though I agree with Tom10101 about the Lambic Peated Weizen)
(from draught @ Zwanze Day 2014, Moeder Lambik Fontainas. Thanks for sharing, ratebeer crew!)

tom10101 (5962) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
On tap @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy yellow/golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is dominated by peat with light citrus presence. Taste is also heavily peated with light citrus, light sweetness and hints of sourness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A tad vinous mouthfeel. Dry. Lack of balance. With a similar profile, I prefer BrauArt Lambik Peated Weizen by a fair margin.

erickok (5931) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2014
Blond body and very pillowy stable head. Very heavy peated, odd with such a pale beer, yet also sweet. Interesting twist bit Im not convinced these smoked and sour aroma go for well, especially in a blond beer. (On tap at Moeder Lambic)

joergen (27704) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2014
Draught at Moeder Lambic. Clear amber colored with a huge white head. Light acidic aroma of peat and smoke with notes of soap. Fruity and light acidic flavor of smoke and peat. Smoked finish. I dont like the combination of peat and acidity.

IluvatarMilan (282) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Tap at Moeder Lambic. Sour beers are nice. smoked beers are nice. Now we know that sour-smoked beers are also nice. Has everything from citrus fruits, mild sourness to peat, smoke, all while retaining quite a full body and great drinkability.

sebletitje (9951) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
Draft @ ML Fontainas, Italian Fest Sept 14. Dore tirant sur un lger orang. Col blanc trs fin. Arme met de suite lambiance, trs fort sur le bouquet tourb qui est dominant et sans rappeler les whisky cossais. Rtro lgrement fruit sur des notes dagrumes. Palais offre une effervescence moyenne voire haute, tourb trs dominant, qui surprend au dbut mais qui finit par gagner sa place. Le ct acidul reste prsent mais est vite clips par ce malt tourb qui finit par rappeler le bacon voire une fume de cigare. Reste trs peu en terme de vin rouge.

77ships (9350) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
Thanks! Sampled draft @ Italian Beer Week-end / Zwanze 2014 CML. Always wanted to try a peated sour (preferably a geuze but this will have to suffice for now). Hazy orange, small creamy white head. Nose is rich peat, rounded orange, nice sour, lemon, touch phenolic Islay profile, very lovely. Taste is mellower peat, orange, light sugar, lemon, light wine, touch phenolic Islay peat in the back, acidic, wet wood smoke. Easy to drink. Very nice, could have used more depth or complexity but never the less, I really enjoyed this one.

JorisPPattyn (9908) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
Draught Medium, very fine & dense snowwhite head over faintly hazed yellow-orangeish beer. Sourish, lactic nose smelling from a mile off, but once close, more, if not utterly phenolic-tarry, to the detriment of anything else. Sourish- lactic returning in the mouth, and then, again, going completely towards the phenols-tarred poles, tarred sandpaper. And nothing else to experience. Medium bodied at best, well-attenuated, well-carbonated. Faint sourishness lingering on top of all the phenols in the aftertaste. A tad less phenols would have been welcome.

Bottle @ Bruces. The pours light hazy gold with a small head. The nose is lemon, acetic tang, buggy wood. The taste is somewhat medicinal. Bright herbs. Funky wood, tart. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, quite good.
