Notes: The traditional sour beer uses the wild yeast found around the farm. This gives the beer a soft, refreshing sour taste. After a year of aging on a barrel this beer is ready for consumption. Each batch of Zure van Tildonk is carefully aged in our cellars at the Engelburcht Monastery for several months prior to release.

Pale yellow bottle pour has no visible carbonation. Aroma is is limes and Brett. The flavor is mildly tart with grape and oak notes. This is a quite palatable unblended lambic. The mouthfeel is very wet for the style.

12.7oz cork and caged bottle, poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a lightly cloudy gold color with just a thin cap of white head that instantly dissipated and left zero lacing.

The aroma was fairly benign, just some light grain in the base, and a tart component. On the tongue though, more of a floral taste appeared alongside the grain, and the tartness was amped up to where it was just shy of sour. There was a slight fruit taste (grapes?) in there too.

The body was on the light side medium, but better than thin. Drinkability was good, the bottle was gone quickly. Overall, a nice little brew. Probably worth a shot if you see it, but not worth seeking out, unless you're a huge fan of the style.

375mL corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip
(A)- Pours a bright golden honey colored orange. Some decent white froth that dissipated quickly
(S)- Large levels of barnyard hay funk meets some musty Brett. Very light lemon rind acidity
(T)- Bright but light lemon-like acidity meets lots of Brett barnyard hay funk. Some subtle biscuit and cereal notes on the finish
(M)- Good carbonation level and balance. LIght, but flavorful; lightly tart and refreshingly crisp
(O)- Not overly complex, but definitely enjoyable for a straight unblended lambic

Very much tastes like an un-fruited lambic. Delicious.

It has a light yellow color with light effervescence. Deep funk within a medium farmhouse base. Delightful "Sessionable" Sour. It does have a thinner tarter body than many of the guezes or other sours I have been enjoying, but the light tang and body is really nice. It pairs nicely with rye or wheat bread enhancing everything.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange body. Not much of a head. Just a little bit of a thin white collar.

Smell - Ooh. Smells like cardboard. At 2 years old, that's very odd. Smells sweet too.

Taste - Cardboard, sugar, and some sourness. A little bit woody. Cardboardy in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Sweet and heavy for something brewed in the lambic style.

Overall - The more I drink it, the more it seems that the cardboard is just an off flavor, not a result of oxidation.

Smell is typical of a sour but just makes me think of rolling rock for some reason.

One of the better sours I have had in 2014.

Def recommend this one.

Fruit notes, decent amount of carbonation, just the aroma

An enjoyable light sour blonde ale. Perfect accompanying a rich steak dinner or other such offering. Lemony zest mingles with an undertone of barnyard funk. Very well balanced overall.
