Brewer Description: (from bottle in Dutch) Nectarine Lambiek schuimt niet, doordat hergisting op fles minimaal is om de fruitaroma’s maximaal te proeven. Oude Nectarine Lambiek ontstaat door het samen vergisten van jonge lambiek met een hoeveelheid aromatische nectarinen. De nectarine, Prunus Nuci persica, worden in hun geheel (geen sap) met pit in bewerking gebracht. Het gehalte aan nectarinen bedraagt ongeveer 40 kg per 100 liter lambiek.

(translated to English) Nectarine Lambiek does not foam, because refermentation in the bottle is minimal to maximize the taste of the fruit aromas. Oude Nectarine Lambiek is created by fermenting young lambic together with a quantity of aromatic nectarines. The nectarine, Prunus Nuci persica, are processed whole (no juice) with seeds. The nectarine content is approximately 40 kg per 100 liters of lambic.

Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, 2017 vintage, with a best before date of July 2040. Poured into a De Cam stemmed glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden orange colour with a very thin white head that disappeared almost immediately while leaving only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Funky, nectarines, peach, apricot, vanilla yoghurt, oak, dusty, with a hint of lemon zest.
Taste: Light sour, tart, nectarines, peach, yoghurt, olive oil, lemon zest, oak, funky, barnyard.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Easy drinking with nice aroma, flavours and good funky notes. It lacked carbonation though, and I definitely thought it needed some.
