3.55/5  rDev -13%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

375 ml bottle poured into piraat oversized tulip

appearance: bottle opens to no pop and beer pours with absolutely no head... this is the second one ive had so id imagine that this is how the brew is meant to be dull burnt orange color

aroma: sour banyuls vinegar and some funk as well, cow shit cat pee all that stuff

taste: tart and lemon rind bitterness with somewhat of a dry fruity finish, some grapefruit and vinegar in there as well

overall: i like my sour ales to have at least some carbonation and this was totally flat, my first offering from this brewery and ive had it twice and this one is not impressive, carbonate it and ill come back to it

4.65/5  rDev +14%
look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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!
