Poured into a Lambic tumbler glass. A few larger bubbles form and fade, leaving a still surface, as the bottle describes. This looks more like an unblended Lambic.
Some hay and stable aroma, fairly mellow and understated. A light citric note.
Flavors of pink grapefruit, cider tartness, tannic oak and a spritz of lemon. Nearly no carbonation, mildly acidic and reminds me of grapefruit juice due to the slight pucker and slippery feel. Overall pretty drinkable, and not intensely sour.
Thanks to xnoxhatex for introducing me to this one...

Served chilled in a wine glass.

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!
