Probably a defect of some kind, but my bottle was flat as a clam sea. Looks yellow and dull. Strong aroma, but hard to place. Smells a little fruity and yeasty, maybe strawberry? The initial taste is nothing but sourness and that doesn't change much nor does the thin mouthfeel. If this is any example, I don't think I care much for lambics, though as I said above, there may have been something wrong with the bottle. After half a glass I didn't want to drink any more.

Damn you Vanberg & DeWulf for relabeling Lindemans lambic and charging me 6 more bucks for a 750mL! Seriously, if the "private domain" isn't principally Lindemans (if not wholly Lindemans), I'd be surprised. I absolutely could be wrong, in which case you have here another less than stellar example of a lambic w/ the same characteristics as Cuvee Renee. Cloudy, negligent carbonation, smells of Lindemans bugs, limited mid palette and short, simple bitterish finish w/ a weak acid backbone.

Appearance, smell, taste all average. Mouthfeel below average--bitterness and lack of mouth watering acid are off for the style. Overall below average due to mouthfeel and poor qpr ratio.

Was excited for this one: V and D know their Belgians. And while perfectly quaffable, it's just another mediocre lambic sold at a premium price point. Perhaps V and D blended to their own sweet spots, and we just have different tastes. Oh well, it's always fun trying new lambic.
