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.

Cheers!

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.

Really delicious.

On-cask at the Drie Fonteinen cafe.

A- Pours a hazy golden color with a white head.

S- Lots of cheese, some grainy sweetness, barnyard funkiness, citrus.

T- Similar to the aroma, more cheese and grainy sweetness than you would see in an older lambic, nice amount of funkiness with some lemony citrus acidity.

M- Light, soft and dry with a small bit of carbonation.

O- Really interesting stuff, it is quite different from both older lambics and from the regular geuze.
