Sampled at the Drie Fonteinen Cafe, 2001
This was the second straight Lambic that I had ever had, it was again far mellower than I was expecting. Of course it was 'sans-carbonation' (say it with a Cajun man accent its much more fun that way) and had a quite noticeable acidic aroma. The acidity promised in the nose was surprisingly subdued in the taste. It was much more of a balanced / mellow acidity, which I am surmising, was the result of a bit of age that helps to smooth out Lambics. The beer itself was quite a revelation. There was a fair amount of musty character, and an appetizing hint of mushroom and a bit of character nabbed from a proper strong stinky farmhouse cheese. All in all it was a great aperitif for the impending gastronomic exercise that I was about to have.
