Pours a deep orange with no head, slightly hazy. Smells tartly acetic with some notes of the forest floor and some light wheat aromas. The beer is almost completely still- just the barest wisp of carbonation. For a style like this, that doesn't bother me. Complex flavors here. Tart, bitter, lots of umami notes that go one and on- mushrooms, loam, pine needles. Slightly metallic and woody at the finish. Very smooth, no slickness at all, which is nice because of the low carbonation. Delicious and complex- a cerebral sipper.

750ml bottle 6,0% Abv.
Served chilled in a wine glass.
Bottled 30 Nov 2006
Best Before: 30 Nov 2016

Appearance: It would seem that Doesjel is still feeling somewhat lazy and hasn’t fully carbonated, as a rough pour only yields a thin layer of bubbles atop a beautiful golden-orange body. Thankfully I prefer my beers with a lower level of carbonation, so it shouldn’t be a problem.

Smell: Oh wow, this smells fantastic! The nose is chock full of characteristic 3F funk and easily one of the best smelling lambics I have had recently. There is a fair amount of acidity alongside notes of cider vinegar, peach, overripe orange, oak, old wood, musty mildew, dry leaves, earthy, wet hay and a touch of cheese.

Taste: As the nose suggested, this is a fantastically delicious lambic. Notes include: Tons of funk, dry dusty leaves, musty, undergrowth, dry grass, old wood, oak, cider vinegar, lemon peel, and a touch of peach. The beer is fairly dry and offers a very slight bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: As I expected, Doesjel is very close to being flat with only a few small bubbles floating around. The body feels a little fuller than other lambics, however that may just be due to the lack of carbonation.

Overall: Another superb lambic from 3F and one of my new favourites. I am going to have to track down quite a few more bottles!
