Game Day Beer Review: 2012 Vanberg and De Wulf Lambickx Unblended Lambic

(5.79% ABV) The bottle of Lambickx opened without the slightest hint of carbonation when the cork was pulled, and the beer poured with no head at all, essentially flat. The color was a solid orange-yellow.

The beer smelled funky, with some wine-like notes. Lemon citrus came shining through upon tasting, and the funk became more pronounced as the beer warmed up. Lambickx drinks more like a wine than a beer, with only the most minimal carbonation present.  We're not sure if this was by design or due to poor ageing, but it made for a rather unique experience which ultimately left us just a bit disappointed: B
