Had a small taster at the volkscafe across from the brewery, side by side with the gueuze. Hazy, brownish-yellow color with basically no carb. Some nice funk in the nose and taste, but the body is a lighter light. Finishes a bit watery.

The is no difference between what I had & what is listed as Oude Lambiek (bottles) on BA. Since I had it draft, my notes belong here.

Notes from 2011: Draft @ Modeste 2011 : 3 year old - clear orange with no head, looks a bit like whiskey, sour lemons, tart, barnyard, brett, old wood barnyard, brett, slightly puckering, fruity with lemons, nice

I enjoyed this 2012 bottle at Moeder Lambic, served chilled in a wine glass.

The lambic appears almost still with a dark golden glow with very fine bead and no legs or lace just spots that cling and fall when swirled in the glass. The smell is great -lots of very fruit scents like apricot with slight funk accent and subtle grain in the nose with mild vinous element with gentle herbal scent. The feel is light almost earthy in texture with dry effect with low carbonation yet fruity tangy element with moderate sour yet a slight bitter element with light woodiness.

The taste is very good with tangy white grape and miold woody tannin and mango-like tropical flavor with slight lemon quality in the background with slight hint of sweetness and juicy citrus tangy acidic flavor which blends with slight funk and herbal flavor which is best described as 'woody with a more tropical taste almost like pineapple with a dash of grapefruit bitterness in the tangy/juicy/dry finish. Overall this is a pretty decent lambic for my first experience with De Cam, not great carbonation but then the flavor and nose make up for that. I would drink this again

On tap at De Cam in Gooik. The first lambic I had on draught in Belgium. Great place to start.
A: orange-yellow cloudy, very little head
S: strong nose, great earthy horse-blanket
T: great, up front barley sourness but not too sour, well-balanced
M: real nice, great balance
O: very, very nice

2012 bottling (750ml) into snifter

Poured golden with no carbonation
Funk and tart on the nose. Wet hay, banyard, lemon peel
Almost numbing on the palate with sharp acidity, but muted murky flavors
Dead flat and lifeless. Watery

Overall very underwhelmed - no carb, and no brightness left this feeling almost undrinkable
