Flavor: sour, not that strong, soft, vinous, some bitterness, full-bodied aftertaste, tannic acid?, acrid somehow, very dry. - weak, watery
Palate: pretty much co2 but w/ a fanstastic body, fat, meaty, sparkling noble.
Very special, dry and noble.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
First of all, massive, MASSIVE thanks to diabel for sending me this. I owe you big-time!
Clear amber with an anemic head which does its best to hang on to the bottom of the glass. Loads of stuff going on in the aroma in a very refined kinda way - classic 3F really. There are those Vervifontaine-style wildflowers, violets and fresh-cut grass with something that’s reminiscent of the Pajottenland countryside itself - cowdung? Balsa wood, sawdust, cherries, pepper, lemon rind, sherbet, musty cobwebs and moisturiser all get a bit of a run too, with some prickly volatile acids getting into the nasal cavity. Very dry and quite light-bodied with no real initial sweetness at all, before an assertive but certainly not aggressive orange juice tartness which persists for quite some time. What certainly is aggressive is a rough, astringent, woody, stale hop bitterness which is alright and quite interesting but does get a bit much in parts, giving a finish like super-strength tonic water. Mouthfeel is quite round, with only moderate carbonation, but the considerable tannic presence makes it quite interesting. The bitterness is a bit awkward but this is still delightful stuff. Really bright flavours, vibrant and fresh. It’s quite amazing to think it’s already four years in the bottle. Top stuff.

Bottled (thanks omhper). Firstly, the cork flew in the wooden roof, and almost broke it, so beware of high pressure. A bit hazy golden colour, mediumsized head. Aroma is sourness and fruits. Flavour is dry and sour oak. Extremely smooth to drink. Long sour fruitish aftertaste. Just superb!
