4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
’11 vintage in July ’15 with several friends. From sandervdbroek-thanks, Sander! Slightly cloudy straw yellow. Nose starts off with massive funky cheese, jumping out of the bottle and glass until it faded or I became desensitized and it gave way to an almost constant change between lemon pith, limestone, light pineapple, and musty funk. Taste follows with lemon, funky cheese, light cobwebs...initially harshly sour but softening as you get used to it and not an enamel stripper by any means. Makes you want to keep going back for more and contemplating it. Great balance.

First bottle at the 24th weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation shared with Rachel & our American friends. Such an impressive selection of lambics. I had to start with something. Pours Gold with a White head. LEmony sour aroma with plenty of funk. Beautifully rounded flavours. Lots of sour, citrus notes. Can’t shake the champagne comparison when I’m drinking gear this good. Magic.
