750 ml C&C bottle served in a mini snifter. 2003 vintage (MMIII on label). Shared at Northdown with the crew.

A: Pours a hazy orange color with no head forming on the pour. Flat as a pancake.

S: Super funky witha minerally quality to it. Lemon grass with a nice lactic bite. Pretty acidic as well, but the the funk is the star of the show here.

T: The taste follows the nose with the funk. Banyard in nature it very punget and sharp. Light acetone with some sour warhead lemon bite and some lemon grass bitterness.

M: Flat and light bodied. Smooth, sour and dry. Still really nice.

O: This was a really sneaky hit for the night. Even though it was flat it was still deliciously complex. I wish I had another.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750 ml bottle an Monk's Cafe, 2003 vintage, served in a gueuze glass.

A- Pours a nice, slightly hazy golden color with a thin white head that quickly fizzles to a collar.

S- Lots of lactic acidity, a ton of great oaky barrel character, and a very interesting earthy, musty funkiness.

T- Has a nice amount of lactic acidity, although it's still only moderately tart for a lambic, definitely less than I was expecting after a decade in the bottle. Oak flavors are pretty prominent, which lends a bit of mild vanilla flavor and a lot of tannins. There's a nice earthy funk as well. Finishes with a very dry, oaky, tannic finish.

M- Light-bodied, smooth, dry feel. Carbonation is on the lower side, but still very good.

O- I really enjoyed this beer, my first from De Cam. This is a really well-made, delicious beer that has aged very nicely, I would love to drink this again.

Light head. Color is a pale gold.

Flavors of sour and light acidity. Lemon and tart flavors. Very funky. Cherry tartness.
Barnyard funk.

Mouthfeel is tart and dry. Lighter bodied.

Overall, this was a nice lambic. Pretty easy to drink, but one glass was enough.
