4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
As Boon To Be Wild, six year old keg at Belgium Chimipalooza. Exceptionally strong old lambic with, due to refermentation in the keg, an egg-white, moussy head and misty amberish orange blonde colour. Complex, funky and (as is typical for old lambic) ’restrained’ aroma of sour plum, unripe gooseberry, stale sweat, wet wood, old sherry, moldy lemon, sourdough, dry white wine, bitter orange. Soft, complexely estery onset, very fruity, lactic tartness with a thin and subdued lemony edge, gooseberry and green plum flavors, sherryish, soapy wheat and bready barley backbone, soft and creamy mouthfeel, vinous, drying wood in the end with, in spite of the ABV which is huge for a lambic, well-hidden alcohol. Great and impressive lambic in every sense, very noble and ’artistocratic’ in its old character and distinguished restraint, glad I got a chance to sample this.
