I enjoyed this 2012 bottle at Moeder Lambic, served chilled in a wine glass.

The lambic appears almost still with a dark golden glow with very fine bead and no legs or lace just spots that cling and fall when swirled in the glass. The smell is great -lots of very fruit scents like apricot with slight funk accent and subtle grain in the nose with mild vinous element with gentle herbal scent. The feel is light almost earthy in texture with dry effect with low carbonation yet fruity tangy element with moderate sour yet a slight bitter element with light woodiness.

The taste is very good with tangy white grape and miold woody tannin and mango-like tropical flavor with slight lemon quality in the background with slight hint of sweetness and juicy citrus tangy acidic flavor which blends with slight funk and herbal flavor which is best described as 'woody with a more tropical taste almost like pineapple with a dash of grapefruit bitterness in the tangy/juicy/dry finish. Overall this is a pretty decent lambic for my first experience with De Cam, not great carbonation but then the flavor and nose make up for that. I would drink this again

The is no difference between what I had & what is listed as Oude Lambiek (bottles) on BA. Since I had it draft, my notes belong here.

Notes from 2011: Draft @ Modeste 2011 : 3 year old - clear orange with no head, looks a bit like whiskey, sour lemons, tart, barnyard, brett, old wood barnyard, brett, slightly puckering, fruity with lemons, nice

M: real nice, great balance
O: very, very nice
