I found this lambic at a mid-size concert venue in Washington DC (9:30 club U Street) of all places. $10/glass on tap.

It is a fine example of what I perceive as a real lambic, granted I'm unaware of the production technique used here.

Yeast tastes natural. Acidity is moderate. Vinegar present, but more of an apple cider type.

Bubbles are nice and small & not too many, but fall apart shorter than I'd prefer.

Fairly long finish turns into a jolly rancher. I'm not a fan of the candy but here it works well.

I can't smell anything aside from sweaty concert goers, so we'll have to discount that aspect!
