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!

2001 bottle I've been cellaring for the past 4.5 years.

Pours a hazy pale gold with a hint of orange and just a touch of thin head.

Aroma is astounding, each new sniff yields new perceptions, and it develops as it warms. Thick must and barnyard, hints of lemon, apple, washed rind cheese, earthy.

On the palate this is round and full for a beer with almost imperceptible carbonation (as is appropriate). Vinous and layered, with a touch of mid-palate sweetness that finishes with a crisp tartness and a mineral bitterness.

A beer that on one hand begs to be sipped and savored for days, and on the other, that is so refreshing and complex and simply drinkable that you wish you could drink it by the carafe.

2012 bottle poured into snifter. New beer #400

There was almost no carbonation and some slight oxidation.

I was really looking forward to this beer but I ended up getting a bad bottle.

I would love to get a chance to try again.

Price: $35 for 750ml

Poured a pale golden orange body with minimal head and lace. The aroma is typical tart/sour with a touch of acidity as well as wood/oak. Brew is more of the same as the beer is smooth and easy to drink as it comprised mostly of a sharp, acidic sour tartness but it comes across less sour apple/cherry and more sour/tart tropical fruit. In other words, for as sour as this beer is there is a bit of both oaky woodiness and sweet fruit notes to this beer, and it's not just sour but also a touch of funkiness. These are the sours I like b/c it's more complex than drinking some highly carbonated sour juice that some beers of this style are like.
