Got this one at De Bierkoning a couple weeks back.

From a 375 corked and caged bottle into a wine glass
Best before 7 August 2017
Lot E

APPEARANCE: Pours out flat and yields a bubbly ring eventually. Cloudy amer orange with no carbonation. Ends up looking flat pretty quickly, so not really a fan there.

SMELL: Strawberries for sure, with stinky cheese, tart lemon notes and some acidic vinegar on the nose. Pretty bold. Moldy aromas and lots of fungus as well. A little too much so for my tastes.

TASTE: Tart lemon sourness with sour strawberries as well. Definite funk and cheese up front with a tart and sour, acidic finish. Lemon, strawberry tartness and some moldy flavors linger on the palate. A hint of bitterness as well. Actually much more balanced and enjoyable than the nose had led on.

PALATE: Medium body and no real carbonation. Basically flat. Watery going down and finishes with a touch of acidity. Fine, but a little too flat, even for the style.

OVERALL: A bit too moldy and funky on the nose for me, but the flavor was much more balanced and included more of the tartness and acidity that I tend to enjoy. Enjoyable and refreshing on a warm day, though a little more cabonation is needed to make this one worth while. I'll try another batch, but will pass on this one for now.

2013 vintage

pours pretty still, like no head ever even when i tried. golden orange, bit of burnt orange.

light strawberry is apparent. sour must and funk.

starts out sour, with a subtle sweetness. as the sourness fades the malty body and fresh strawberry begin to pop out. light oak in the finish.

dead flat, a bit oily.

pretty good, the strawberry may be one of my least favorite fruits used in lambic but its interesting and different. i would drink this again, but only here and there.
