Thanks to jeffo for the bottle

Pours a golden copper colour, light ring of white head and no lace. Smell is buttery and oak forward, lactic/cheesy notes with some lemon rind, quite funky. Taste is cleaner, fruity and tart, again pretty oak, moderately sour throughout. Nearly flat with very minimal carbonation, medium body. Probably my favourite unblended lambic, very enjoyable.

So this was a double labelled bottle. The top label indicated it was bottled in 2009; however, the label below stated it was bottled on 1/2013. Bottle was uncorked with nary a sound (dead flat). Once poured, the color in the glass was a pleasing yellow-orange. Nose expresses hay, citrus notes, green apple and a hint of cork. Taste consistent with nose - no real surprises. Mouthfeel is light in body with a still carbonation and a pleasant acidity that lightly stimulates the salivary glands along the cheeks. Overall, a very good beer; however, just a touch of carbonation would have enhanced the complexity and experience in my opinion.
