UPDATED: JUL 3, 2015 Grand Cru Bruocsella ’14 vintage Pours an urine yellow color with no head at all, leaving the spotlight on the actual beautiful saturated, sun-yellow color. Developes a small film of lacing at the edge of the glass. Has aromas of glue, old oak, leather and matured hops, bound together by ripe lemon. The beers tartness gets gently balanced by the dusty oak, together with funky tartness. The nose is actually quite simple, not one-dimensional, but straight-up convincing. Has a soft, very refreshing mouthfeel to it, based on the beers low carbonation. Opens up the palate to the brews pleasant tartness, with no distraction at all. Needs a moment of adjustment, then becomes a revelation. Tastes of old hops among tart lemon, old wood and an incredibly well pronounced funkiness. Its tartness gets showcased perfectly, due to he very low carbonation. Reveals an almost fruity tartness during the finish, featuring crisp lemon and green apple peel, still balanced by the wood. Its funkiness gets perfectly pronounced by the beers very low carbonation, while the oak lends enough character to prevent it from being boring. When I have had this the last time, it was younger and even lower carbonated, while this is by comparison almost sparkling, very refreshing. Its wooden dust qualities add perfectly well up to the rich tartness, revealing an incredibly funky beer.

Bought at the brewery, bottled in 2011, 2008 organic vintage: so I had the uncarbonated lambic at the brewery and this doesn’t have that beautiful clarity of character. It’s so damned sour, I can tasty diary cork in it too. Some cheese rind in there. It smells like a corked wine, plenty of oxidation. It has plenty of limeade character. Not the best thing I’ve had from them.

Bottle shared by JBPortland ! Pours a deep golden almost copper color with a thin ring of rising bubbles. Aromas of beeswax, leather, forest mushrooms, dry moss, orange zest and wet wood. Palate follows the nose with great contrast of musty old compost and light stonefruit nuances. Creamy mouthfeel provides a great backbone for the acidity.

Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. The 750 mL pours a hazy straw yellow color with not a whole lot of head. The aroma is pretty sour, lots of citrus sourness. There is a lot of funk also present here. Not a whole lot else going on. Maybe some apple skins, but that’s about it. The flavor is no where near as sour as the aroma might insinuate. The lemon and apple skins do kind of come through here, but it’s not really as sour as I was hoping. The mouth feel is pretty flat and oily, not much carbonation. The aftertaste is lingeringly sour and citrusy, but no where near what I was expecting. Good, but I’ve had better offerings from Cantillon
