reinheitsgematt hooked this up tonight at an impromptu Labor Day BBQ... Thanks Matt!! This was never on my radar. Pours a crystal clear light golden with a sudsy white head... small drapes of lacing. Nose is light spiciness punctuated by a good earthy funk.. the lambic is definitely present. Flavor has a bit of fruitiness that reminds me of fermented out apricot or possibly green apple... dry grassy lawn clippings.. but the funk comes in swinging and doesn’t die back.. well done. Light body with a good carbonation. Matt gave this to me blind... I guessed it was a very old Saison Brett... Good guess I think. Thanks again buddy!

Good sour saison. Light aroma of basement, oak, some sweet fruits, barnyard, leaves. golden, hazy, frothy white head. First Sips shows the light sour soul of this beer. Some litchi, white grapes, suggestion of white wine. Also sweet fruits like peach, pear. Good bitterness at the end with Pit peach. Very good one

Bottle : Well - the presentation is beautiful as far as beer bottles go. This one pours a hazy apricot, with a frothy pillow top into this glass - it retains fairly well - with heavy lace. This one is mineral water, heavy grasses, lemon, and baked bread. It begins crisp and lively - and quickly moves to soapy zest of lemon, with feint stone fruit presence, wrapping up with bready malts, and a touch of funk on a dry finish line. It’s not perfect by any means - but it’s a fun attempt.

77ships (7023) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2015
Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ “Vini Birre Ribelli 2015”. Hazy citrus, only some white bubbles. Nose is rotting, milky, weird lactic, spoiled milk & spoiled grapes. Taste is rotting milky, bad lactic, sugar, corn, weird barn, pepper,… Milky body. No this isn’t right, not the good kind of wild for nor very lambiek-like. I have been told that vintages vary heavily in quality, enjoy-ability & taste. So I must have lucked out.

una collaborazione con cantillonil risultato è una birra che unisce la ruvidezza del lambic con le note gentili di una duchessa estremamente potabile
