3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy pale orange with a tiny bit of white head. Smell is sweet grapes, like a young champagne base wine and a bit of funk. Palate is medium bodied with a good amount of delayed carbonation. Taste is sweet at first then transitions to a quite sour taste that lingers a while but leaves a slight sweetness in the aftertaste to balance a bit of leftover sourness. AWESOME beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle during Zwanze 2016. The beer is a hazy gold with a white head of foam. In the aroma I get musty fruit and straw. Apricots, white grapes, a bit winey. Mild tartness and dry, funky fruit. Soft spritz of carbonation. Medium body. In a day of outstanding beers, this beer stood out at being especially awesome.

Bottle poured into a snifter showing lightly filtered dull yellow with no head.
The nose shows tart and acetic notes of light oak and floral notes.
The palate is medium bodied and not carbonated. Highly tart with flavors of citric lemon and acetic flowers. Very light and subtle hints of honey. Not bad!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 9/15/2013.
Very hazy orange body. Nice white head that settles to a thick collar.
Nose is acidic and very citrusy. Lemon and orange. Musty hay. If I think about it, I can imagine it smelling like grapes.
Huge citrus flavor here. Much more lemon than any grape flavor, although I get the grapes more here than in the nose. Grain, hay, and all the standard Cantillon lambic flavors. The sourness is strong and blends well with the grape sweetness.
Medium carbonation. Strong sourness, but never overbearing.
This is great. Nothing like what I expected from a grape lambic.

750ml bottle from Legacy. Bottled November 12, 2015. Tasting at Brian’s. Pours a hazy straw with no head. Almost no carbonation. First nose is sulphidic (spoiled? although disappeared after), fruity. Same taste. Unfortunately is not so good, as it should be.

Lätt disig gyllenorange öl med vitt skum som försvinner ganska snabbt. Stall och vinägersyrlighet i doft och smak tillsammans med trä och tydliga druvinslag inklusive druvskal.

Dry lambic with sophisticated funky dry taste. Grape dryness in the palate and after taste is elegant. Excellent! Such a subtile sour beer!
