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.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

$25 750 from qfc in Seattle early last year.

Appearance. Pours a hazy, light yellow-gold with just a ring of head clinging to the edge of the glass.

Smell. Red apples, some nice woody funk, a little wheaty salted crackers. Not bad.

Taste. That wheaty salted cracker that I could smell is in the taste, just lightly sour, maybe a little pear and apple, some funky and lightly bitter wood. Drinkable, but not the greatest.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, light carbonation.

Overall. Wow. At $25 for this, I feel cheated.
