The_Osprey (6348) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2015
Keg at Moeder Lambic as ’Cuvee de Ranke’. Dark orange, still, slight haze, small foamy cream head, light lacing. Aroma is apple, sour lemon, white wine, touch of cider. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is dry, papery, vanilla, white pepper, soft sourness. Nice, but I think I prefer Girardin lambics by themselves. Still, no complaints from me. A tasty beer.
