The perfect beer. I hope that people who donít understand lambics stop pulling the average rating of this fantastic liquid down. A stinky, deep, ineffable beauty of a beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,75 @ bottleshare - Sour aroma, juicy stonefruit, minerals, white wine and grapeskins. The flavor is not very sour, but has some green apple and tealeaves. Slight vanilla in the aftertaste. The beer is very subtle and should be treated more like wine than beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A 750ml corked and capped bottle bottled on 21st August 2015 and poured into a wine glass. It poured a very slightly cloudy golden orange colour with pretty much no head at all and very sparse lacing if any. Aromas of leather, oak, malt vinegar, dusty, chalk and funky. Maybe a hint of apricot but not really. Taste tart, sour, green apple, vinegar, lemon juice, oak and funk. Medium to light bodied with pretty much no carbonation. Overall the taste was decent and better than the aroma. However with every sip, the aroma kind of gets to me. The dusty and chalky element just wasnít my cup of tea. In addition, the complete lack of carbonation was not so good. Perhaps this particular beer is just not for me considering all the other world class Lambics that Iíve tried.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle poured into a Cantillon tumbler. The beer is a hazed gold with a white head of foam that starts small and dissipates pretty quickly . The aroma is funky, earthy, a bit cheesy, musty, dry grassy notes, mild acidity. As it warms, more acidity comes out and more fruity acidity also comes out. Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Monkís Cafe. Pours flat and gently clouded honey-gold. White vinegar leads in the aroma, but is tempered nicely by pronounced wine character, huge minerality (like wet cement) plus delicate green grapes, almond, vanillin, pear. Smooth and sweet. In the flavor, big tannic Brett funk tugs on the tongue and lingers long after the sip. Sugary pear up front morphs into dry white wine and a flash of white vinegar midpalate. Watery body slides the acid down the palate, depositing peppery bitterness. I know the style doesnít really call for it, but some carbonation would be appreciated.
