3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2014 Nose: Oak, lemon, forest, slight summer fruits; rich. Taste is deeply oak, leading to cider, white grapes, sherry, a bitter light sour finish. There is a white wine note that lingers in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth but the absence of carbonation is strange.
Good but surprisingly light in sour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. 2007 edition. The colour is cloudy deep orange with no head. Aroma of horse blanket, rowan berries, lime, forest floor and oak. Has a sour flavour but less than expected, and with tones of more horse, apple cider vinegar and pepper. The mouth feel is flat and silky, and has a light bitterness. An interesting beer experience, and the beer feels surprisingly round and easy drinking for a unblended lambic.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with no head despite an aggressive pour. Nose is oaky barnyard funk, white wine, apple cider vinegar. Taste is lemon, apples or pears, vinegar, woody funk. Mouth feel is medium to light and utterly flat, finishing bone dry with lingering sourness.
This takes a bit of getting used to, particularly with the utter lack of carbonation. The flavour does open up significantly the more it warms up, and the sourness builds and lingers.
