This was raw lambic pulled straight from a one-year-old Lindemans barrel in the 3F on-premise cellar. Served from an earthenware pitcher into a 3F wine-style glass.
A: Deep gold, slightly hazy body with some coarse bubbles on top. Pretty standard.
S: Powerful sulfur, apple cider, and plenty of barnyard funk. Weird, offensive, and yet enticing.
T: The sulfur takes a back seat to the dirty horseblanket funk, the apple notes, and the grassy dryness. Very complex, very raw. Nice.
M: Flat, smooth, medium-bodied. Fine.
O: Mrs. Debelder was kind enough to invite me and the other American guests at the brewery into the cellar for a little tour, part of which was sampling young Lambic straight from the barrel. Afterward, I ordered a full glass to review. While definitely lacking in refinement, and possessing far too much of the sulfurous off-note, it was a real treat.

From the barrel on cask at the Drie Fonteinen Lambic Room during last week's Belgium trip. Reviewed from notes.
Served in a Drie Fonteinen tumbler.
This was taken from the barrel and was a young batch of lambic brewed at Lindemans. Served in a 1L jug.
Poured a nice slightly-hazed orange color with a bit of foam after a good pour, though that receded quite quickly.
The nose was full of cheese and socks with some earth and quite a bit of funk. It certainly doesn't sound appetizing, but it smelled incredible. Very complex even at this young age. The flavor was a bit more subdued, but still had all the same characteristics. A bit more funk and less cheese than the nose.
Mouthfeel was light with a nice dryness to it and quite a bit of barnyard funk and cheesy aftertaste.
