Probably a defect of some kind, but my bottle was flat as a clam sea. Looks yellow and dull. Strong aroma, but hard to place. Smells a little fruity and yeasty, maybe strawberry? The initial taste is nothing but sourness and that doesn't change much nor does the thin mouthfeel. If this is any example, I don't think I care much for lambics, though as I said above, there may have been something wrong with the bottle. After half a glass I didn't want to drink any more.

No head at all. Odd funk in the nose with just a hint of oak. Flavor is just slightly acidic with an over the top off putting earthy funk that overwhelms the palate. Literally tastes like eating soil. Light to medium body. Weak carbonation. Lacks the nice dry feel you get from a good sour. Overall, pretty weak.

Damn you Vanberg & DeWulf for relabeling Lindemans lambic and charging me 6 more bucks for a 750mL! Seriously, if the "private domain" isn't principally Lindemans (if not wholly Lindemans), I'd be surprised. I absolutely could be wrong, in which case you have here another less than stellar example of a lambic w/ the same characteristics as Cuvee Renee. Cloudy, negligent carbonation, smells of Lindemans bugs, limited mid palette and short, simple bitterish finish w/ a weak acid backbone.

Appearance, smell, taste all average. Mouthfeel below average--bitterness and lack of mouth watering acid are off for the style. Overall below average due to mouthfeel and poor qpr ratio.

Was excited for this one: V and D know their Belgians. And while perfectly quaffable, it's just another mediocre lambic sold at a premium price point. Perhaps V and D blended to their own sweet spots, and we just have different tastes. Oh well, it's always fun trying new lambic.
