Poured from the bottle into a stemless wine glass. Bottled Jan 2009.

Apricot orange body, opaque and solid, with a little bit of cola carbonation. Head non existent as to be expected, with a soapy and faint white bubbled collar along the edges.

Great funky bouquet on this, classic funky notes of earth and light pepper. Pretty basic but big and impressive.

Light bodied slightly and a little wet and feeling like box juiced on the mouthfeel for first sip. Little hints of fruit but fairly indistinct and hard to pin down. Very mild acidity with a light freshness to it for being so old. Hints maybe towards orange and stone fruit peach apricot character.

Not bad, pretty interesting with a big classic funky character.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle at 45 degrees into chalice
Aroma initially of apple cider which morphs into a more general sour fruit aroma
Head large (> 6 cm), off white, fizzy, very rapidly diminishing to partial 2 mm ring
Lacing none
Body medium amber, cloudy, continuous moderate CO2 effervescence
Flavor of tannin, fruit, some slight yeast phenolics; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 4.25, Palate 3.75, Overall 4
A decent lambic, rougher than the usual blended. To my taste, not worth the price.

Light and fruity. Not as funk as I had hoped. Especially for the $.

Outstanding beer. But very expensive. Not sure I would buy it again at $35.

Picked this up from the De Cam Brewery. Bottled Jan 2009. Mostly clear orange-yellow pour with an immediately fading head and almost no lacing. The nose is amazing with a huge musty funk and sharp tartness along with hints of oak, sour lemon, and barnyard. The taste follows suit with sharp, almost cheesy notes initially along with hints of barnyard, tart lemon, earthy funk, and oak. The mouthfeel is smoothly sour with very little carbonation and a tart, puckering, oaky finish. Overall, an amazingly flavorful and hugely drinkable Lambic. Highly recommended!
