Large format corn and caged bottle from Tipples. Bottled 2/2012, drank on 2/23/2014. Pours perfectly clear golden orange with no head at all. Nuthin, but I expected that. Aroma of sour vinegar, sweet sugars, a tiny hint of mint. Smells very pleasant. Flavor is sour but not puckeringly so, sweet with some peachy influence, a bit of vinegar, fermented apples maybe, and a bit of spearmint in the back. Completely flat, but I was told to expect this. Honestly I think the flatness takes a bit away from the brew. Slightly dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium, but somewhat heavy for the lambic style that usually comes off extra dry and light to me. I like the flavors but the lack of carbonation isn't my thing. More like drinking a dry white wine than a beer. For $40+ I'd rather have a couple Fou Fones, or one of many other things. Glad I got to try it though, and get my Unblended Lambic tick.

Bottled 2/2012. 750ml 5% ABV. Served in a wine glass

Appearance: Pours a dark sunset orange color. Completely still. Body is lightly hazy with some fine visible sediment.

Smell: Lemon, barnyard, wet hay, green apple, oak, acidic sourness and and slightly herbal.

Taste: Lactic funk, cheesy, lemon, slight grassiness. Overall hugely funky. Sourness is relatively low.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel, with a dry finish. Flat as a board. Zero carbonation.

Overall: Really good lambic. Hugely funky with lots of character. I can't help but feel like some carbonation would have made it better, even though I understand it's intended to be still. Overall, I'd say it's worth the high price tag.

4.33/5  rDev +0.9%

750ml bottle served in a snifter glass.

Bottled in 2009.

A: Weak pop. Almost flat. Pours a nice orange and slightly cloudy color forming a minimum big bubbled layer that disappears instantaneously. No lacings, no trace of carbonation

S: Smell is really great. Sweet and very fruity. Strong notes of peaches and some light notes of orange. Oak. Pale and caramel malts. Strong notes of Lambic yeasts

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Extremely smooth and pleasant. I was expecting a much more sour taste. Well balanced. Strong notes of peaches. Oak. Light vinegar. A bit citrus. Strong notes of earthy Lambic yeasts in the end. No hops bitterness (as expected)

M: Light body and very low carbonation (maybe due to the 5 years in the bottle). Fruity Lambic aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Very delicate Lambic. Excellent stuff
