3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Stoutfest. Label says its a 2007 vintage, but the cork says its 2010. I am gonna go with this being a 2007. Pours a hazy orange in color with maybe a quarter fingers worth of tight white head. Nose is exceptionally balanced. There is lemon and a fair amount of floral character to it. It resembles a Cuvée des Champions or Saint Gilloise in my opinion. Flavor starts out with some bright lemon and then immediately turns to the floral aspect of the beer. It’s gentle grass and tartness....exceptionally balanced. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is gentle, as well as the acidity, a moderate finish. Never had this before, but I am a big fan of this. I enjoy the floral character of the beer quite a bit and it adds some nice complexity to the lambic.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy orange beer with nice head on top and smallish lacing. Bitter and sour aroma, green apples. Earthy notes. Taste is really sour. Green zesty apples, lemon. A bit bitter but also quite fresh. Surprisingly full body and high carbonation. This has a lot of edge which is missing in the gueuze. Excellent and challenging, but so rewarding.
