4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours cola brown-red with a thin tan head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. Nose is tart sourness, cherry and balsamic vinegar, woody and musty notes. Taste is lingering sour and tart, cider and oak, faint leather. Mouth feel is light to medium, with tingling carbonation and mouth-puckering sourness that lasts and lasts, without being overwhelming.
Close to perfect, but not quite. I found the lack of head development disappointing, and wonder if that contributed to the nose being a little muted. These are, however, admittedly minor quibbles about a truly great beer.

comlex taste to explain - the sours rule, but the overall taste is just "magic". Always in my cellar - but being belgian, thazt should not be too difficult. Nor a surprise.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33 bottle, served in snifter. Disappointing, minimal and quickly disappearing head. Dark brown color, hazy, unclear. Lots of sourness in aroma, mostly apple, some plum nad cherries. I also found some nuts (resembles crystal malt, not sure if it was used here). When it comes to taste, not so sour as many lambics, but thats not a disadvantage for me. However, I can still fell nut flavour, apart from fruits and some earthy flavours. Aftertaste is mildly sour along with medium finish. Average carbonation. Its a great beer and worth recommending example of a style. Usually hard to get, but dont hesitate if you find one anywhere.
