3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Blondette ’14 vintage
Many thanks to Emil for the bottle.
Pours a clean, straw yellow color, with a fizzy, small head.
Has aromas of white lemon peel, bread, marzipan, old, sliced potatoe, together with a decent tart note, tying all ingredients together. All in all the nose seems well balanced, while remaining quite modest.
Reveals a lower carbonation, among a light body, enhancing its citraic dryness.
Lemons are far more intense, than the nose revealed, dominating the beers character, with bready malts exhibiting enough balance. A whiff of leather accompanies the dry, crisp lemons with a pleasant brett sourness. Finishes with a slick, dry tartness, providing herbs on the back end of the palate, while the malts turn a tad sweeter during the end.
Overall this beer is quite convincing, due to its straight-forward lemon character. It doesn’t offer a lot of depth though, which is an aspect I often find and admire in Belgian Lambics. The lack of depth in this one gets compensated by a punchy tartness.

[ Bottle ][ 75cl ][ _angst_ ][ Gift ][ Mini Globe ][ 10.4.14 ]
>> Thank you Alex for this birthday gift! Pours a full haze gold with a white ring of foam. Nose is funky chardonnay, Brett, mild soil, earthy mushroom, fresh yellow apple and pear. Taste is fully sour with a lot of lactic and citric acid, long phlegm inducing palate. Flashes of earthy mushroom. Not bad at all, but I enjoyed their Vieille Saison a lot more- softer beer and still acidic.
