Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Keg at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden. Hazy yellow shade. Almost no head. Slight malty aroma with big jammy red wine fruitiness. Taste again is nicely juicy with sufficient wild lambic character. Medium sour, manageable, dryness as it finishes. Barrel really adds to this nicely. ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2015
On draft at Toer De Geuze 2015. Red wine, sweet, nice sour, extremely well balanced. Fantastic lambic. Little bit of an offsmell. teddybeer (3782) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 3, 2015
@ Cerveteca Lisboa. Orangish color with a quickly diminishing white head. Aroma has acid notes, light vinegar and white wine. Flavor is acidic, slightly citrus notes and some winous hints. Vinegar final with a good duration. andrepintado (3402) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - APR 28, 2015
On tap at cerveteca lisboa, portugal. Color is orange. Almost no head. Medium sourness, light sweetness. Aroma is cheese, vinagre, fruity, barnyard. So good! Beer5000 (6489) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2015
On tap @ Kick. Slightly unclear golden body with practically no head, just a thin white film that disappears immediately. Classic funky Lambic aroma, horse blanket and fruity acid. Flavor is dry, acidic and fruity but there is also some kind of soft malt sweetness here. It’s a fine and relatively easy drinkable Lambic for the sour beer drinkers, still I’m convinced there is a good reason for blending Lambics. They tend to miss a lot of the complexity from a Geuze whatsoever. It’s sure nice to sample a few unblended once to know a little of what it is about, but the blended stuff is just more complex. Anyway this is one of the smoothest Lambics I have sampled.

4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Hazy yellow/orange with light off-white bubbles around the edges. Aromas of floral notes, hay, barnyard funk, tart fruit. Tastes of floral notes, barnyard funk, hay, citrus, tart acidic notes, stone fruit. Medium-light body with a dry finish. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Draft at Churchkey. Draft listing states "blend of Boon-brewed lambics aged 6 months in Chateauneuf-du-Pape barrels." Turbid apricot colored pour, no head whatsoever. Nose and flavor bring beautiful horseblanket and earthen funk, hay, lemon, cider vinegar, hints of vinous tannin. Flavor much of the same, with apple and lemon coming to the fore. Very light carbonation, just beyond still. Delicious. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2015
Sample at the brewery from the brewer. THX!
APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, no head.
NOSE: very sour, barnyard, horseblanket, quite some oak, somewhat sweet.
TASTE: very sour again, rather balanced, very dry and somewhat sweet. Very nice in general for a young lambic! Steasy66 (1155) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2014
At grote dorst, flat and golden. Tart lemon aroma. Flavor is tart and surprisingly hoppy. Very interesting. Alengrin (5369) - BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2014
The lambic made at Oud Beersel since 2004 (some years after the original brewer had stopped his activities there). An elegant, estery, pleasantly woody orange blonde lambic with hints of apple, a ’mals’ character, well rounded with restrained vinegar-like acidity especially in the long, complex finish.
