4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
