4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A spicy lambic that first has some sour tones, then the spices, followed by fruit that grows in taste after the first sips, the finish is bitter. This is a beer that demands a slow taste, and demands your complete tongue. Somehow it reminded me of a champagne like beer, saisonminded but more spicy. Recommended.

Lo spirito e il corpo del buon vecchio lambic sembrano trovarsi a loro agio nella terra emiliana. L’equilibrio di questo prodotto è davvero perfetto: l’acidità è preservata nella sua forma avvolgente e trascina con sé un’insieme di note fruttate molto varie che accendono in bocca una primavera di gusti. Un abbraccio tra due paesi e due stili che commuove!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with two finger of fizzy white foam. The nose is a mix of rustic grain, hay, lemon, stonefruit and horse blanket. On the palate its follows the nose nicely with a spritzy barnyard backbone heightened by floral grass, dusty lemon, nectarine and a touch of wet oak. Really wonderful flavors all coming together into a complex dry dusty finish. YUM !

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to Tommy for sharing this one! Pours a clear golden with a low white head that offers good lacing. Aroma is really fresh, fruity and full of brett aromatics. You can feel the lambic in there. Taste is lightly tart, fruity and spicy, really like a good and light saison. There is some barnyard/funk in there but it is really well integrated and classy. Mouthfeel is juicy, carbonation medium-high (quite a festive beer if you ask me!). I really, really enjoyed this one... (if only) I could drink this all the time...

Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to kbudd19 for this one! Unclear copper with a medium off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is leathery with some barnyard notes, fruits (peaches, apricots), yeast, spices and herbal/floral notes. Taste is also leathery with more lambic character than in the aroma. There’s also yeast, floral notes, hay, fruits, lemon, spices and herbal notes. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. The Lambic (3 Fonteinen) and Saison are both recognizable and the balance is really good. Drinkable aplenty and quite complex. Very nice blend!

pours hazy and bright golden orange with a nice white head, some retention and lacing. fruity and floral relatively young lambic - peaches, melons, roses, honey, spices. lambic gives way to fruity and spicy saizohn yeast characteristics. average to moderate carbonation - could be brighter, light body - oily, dry herbal-grassy-spicy astringent and dusty finish. great!
