Glowing yellow-amber color, with no head at all.

Brett defined nose, sulphur and soap, with green apple skin, vinegar hints, overall pointing into a fruity direction.

Has a low carbonation, which leads to a fruity beginning in which mandarin, oak and lemon peel stand out, accompanied with slightly lactic notes. Acidity get more intense, the longer it stays on the palate, leading to a very sour overall impression. Still, it is very enjoyable due to barley malt and dough yeast, keeping the beer in balance. Lemony fruitiness stays on the palate with a dry sourness, leading to an even dryer finish. Easy drinkable and complex at the same time.

Pours an opaque light orange/yellow color with a small head which quickly fades. Minimal lacing. Aroma is lemon, citrius, and apricot with grass and earthy tones. Aroma gains complexity as the beer warms. Taste is sour with light carbonation. Not much alcohol present and a touch on the watery side. The bitterness lingers on finish. Very smooth and light overall with a nice sour kick that's not overpowering. Purchased for $40, a bit steep but enjoyable nevertheless. One of my favorite beers at the moment.

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.

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 $.
