At the Lambik-O-Droom. The young lady who served me said "I have to go get some more from the barrel", music to my ears. Orange color, looks like a lambic. Funky aroma and taste, citrusy, still. Pretty cool to try unblended lambic at 3F, I assume it was one they brewed.

Lambic in a bag at Grote Dorst.

Apple cider, oak, funk, wet horseblanket, and lemon citrus. Still lambic. Very fun to try and compare to the Cantillon, Girardin, etc.

Pours a dark amber color with no head to it.

Smells of dusty toffee, a floral funky tartness with a bright cheese rind and wet grass.

Drinks flat, with a soft, silk mouthfeel to it, which offers a pleasant sourness, without becoming overly dry or funky.

Pungent sourness up front, with a soothing aqueous note to it, with funky straw and young cheese. Pluckering sour at the back end, with dried orange peel and dust, while finishing very clean and silk with its initial aqueous quality.

Very balanced, pretty sour with a balanced soft mouthfeel, which makes it very drinkable despite the lack of carbonation.

On-cask at the Drie Fonteinen cafe.

A- Pours a hazy golden color with a white head.

S- Lots of cheese, some grainy sweetness, barnyard funkiness, citrus.

T- Similar to the aroma, more cheese and grainy sweetness than you would see in an older lambic, nice amount of funkiness with some lemony citrus acidity.

M- Light, soft and dry with a small bit of carbonation.

O- Really interesting stuff, it is quite different from both older lambics and from the regular geuze.
