On tap at grote dorst.

White head. Golden color.

Apple juice up front. Very sweet. Some light funk in the finish. Oaky. Not much else. This isn't very complex, but it isn't bad.

Sampled July 2010 at De Heeren van Liedekercke
A big strawberry aromatic note is brought out by a touch of acetic acid in the nose. The beer is a clearish, copper hue that is quite traditionally flat. There is a hint of musty yeastiness in the nose as well as a bright pear aromatic note towards the finish and this has a typical Lambic, dank sweaty quality to it.

The beer feels very smooth as it first hits my palate. It finishes with a light tartness, some oak astringency and a biting quality that is quite light. Fruit flavors linger with notes of apple and some pear that is even more noticeable. This has a nice lactic character to it, though it is not quite as apparent as the Mort Subite Oude Lambik that I just had. A sip of Cantillon Lambic brings out some musty yeast character in this beer. This really has a nice, subtle, but influencing oak character that seems fairly noticeable.

Pour is a slight hazed golden orange with a very little bit of thin white head. The nose has a cob web aroma, light spicy yeast, and some soft peach in back. The taste is very dusty cob webb up front, light spice, and a little rubbery. There is some lemon zest in back with a bit of sour apricot as well. The body is light and soft, light carb with a hint of driness.

A clear orange amber brew, a small white head, no lacing, small curtains.

The smell is very intriguing, stable, dirt, horse, ripe fruits and yeast.

Tasting of fresh green apples, old vinegar, some sour cream notes, a nuance of old wood.

Little carbonation, a very refreshing palate, a coarse dry finish.

A really well balanced lambic, went very well with ripe goat cheese. At a food and beer tasting at De Klomp, Linköping, Sweden.

Had a sample glass at beer weekend in Brussels. Nice clear colour, not much head. Smell fruits/acidic. Taste was smooth but retained it's tartness. Respectable lambic, I enjoyed it.
