PBW Lambic Summit 2010. A bit on the sweet side for a grape lambic, but nice peppery notes and a good tart grape quality that doesn’t get overwhelmed by the more traditional yogurty tartness.

This one is hard to review because the three versions are so completely different from one another. Almost like they’re not the same beer. In any event, the old one is musty and hose blankety. Z11 has this complexity and grapiness that’s just brilliant. And the new one is some WOW JUICE.

Bottle (750 ml). As "Lambic Pinaut d’Aunis". Bottle from the Missus, aren’t I lucky!?! Also a huge thanks to Cynthia for making this possible! Beautiful clear bright red with a small to medium persistent pinkish head. Aroma is cherry forward with a really nice and well integrated peppery presence that makes it quite different from St-Lamvinus. Nice cheesy notes as well with not much of the usual Cantillon lemony funk. Taste is very winey and quite dusty with loads of cherries, light funk and peppery notes. Sourness level is moderate. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Really tannic. Soft, well balanced and delightful. The peppery presence really add a nice dimension to this beer. Loved it!

Bottle shared by tom10101, many thanks for the rare opportunity Tommy! Pours a bright red with a small white head that leaves low lacing. Nose is of cheese, light rubber, fruits and light vinegar. Taste is moderately acidic with winey flavors. A little less flavourful that I thought it would be but you still get the grapes, oak and lambic so all is well. Citric. Body is light and the vinous feel is very real. Refreshing. Overall a nice and classy fruited lambic, glad I was able to partake!

simont1 (556) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2015
Aroma of red currants, raspberry, dried cranberry, red apples. Taste is very very mineraly, light barnyard with an autumny ripe apple flavour, earthy and a bit complex, but not that flavorful.
