Bottled in 2005.
Pours a crystal clear orange yellow color with virtually no head at all despite a vigorous pour.
Nose is full of lactic wild yeast and some slight lemon zest. Alot of wood in the nose also.
Totally flat. The flavor is good with alot of funk and clear lactic wild yeast. However, the total lack of carbonation makes this difficult to enjoy. I understand that that can be fairly common for an unblended lambic, but it still sucks.
Mouthfeel is good as far as viscosity, but totally flat, so hard to give this one any good marks here.
Drinkability would probably be decent if it had some bubbles, haha.
Overall, seems like it could be a good lambic, and tastes pretty good, just dead flat, which i really don't enjoy.

750ml, 2009 edition, poured into a Cantillon fruit lambic glass today, 1/22/2014 as part of our cellar/extras cleaning tasting.
App- Pours a slightly hazy dark golden-yellow body. Absolutely no head despite a 90 degree pour into the glass. Without the head, it actually looks more appealing just the same.
Smell- Oak, lots of barnyard Cantillon funk, grape skin, pears, bit of cane sugar. No vinegar in the nose
Flavour- Lots of barnyard Cantillon funk, a bit of grape skin and lemon tartness, with acidic vinegar that makes this a 5/10 sour. Also a bit cheesy. Tasty but certainly not complex
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, flat with zero carbonation (obviously), very drinkable
Overall- Not super complex, tastes a lot like Classic Geuze but flat. An interesting take on the lambic, cool to try but if I had the choice between Classic Geuze and Bruocsella, I would take Classic anytime.
