12 oz single from the Sam Adam’s Holiday Sampler. From what I’ve heard of this one I know not to expect a real lambic. Hey..I like beer, I’ll give anything a try. The body of this beer is perfectly translucent and copper colored. The head is small and rapidly fades to a wispy white layer on top. The nose is primarily grainy malt with maybe a tiny, tiny must sprinkling, I can pick up on a sweet fruit flavor, not the tangy cranberry I was expecting but more of a sweet currant aroma. The flavor is a little different than what I was expecting as well, the same grainy malt from the nose is here though. The middle is a weird mish-mash of a slight syrupy sweetness, tart fruitiness, and a flash of mild bitterness. Not bad though, just a little different than what I was expecting I do pick up a faint mustiness or at least some kind of nice little yeast character as opposed to just a clean fermenting yeast. This one is worth trying, make your own decision on it before you pass it up because of what you hear.

They are still bottling this???

No resemblance to Lambic in any way whatsoever.

Foul, tired, sweet/tart-fruity thing that is a combo of rotten/partially-oxidized, jammy "fruit" + malt-beverage-ish type horror.

One of the worst beers I have ever tasted, added to the fact that they put the name "Lambic" on the label make this a double disaster brew.

Anyone buying this a second time, please contact me - I was thinking of dumping some adjuvants into a cesspool, & kegging it up, & calling it Oude Bruin Lambic.

Tasted once, & never again other than Dare, or Paying basis.

Cheers! to rinse my mouth out with almost anything else.
