3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bag-in-a-box. Pours a clear golden with a small head. Sweet aroma with a somewhat soft sourness. Quite mild, but nice. Flavour is bitter and sour with slight notes of wood. Finish is a lingering dry bitterness with hops in the background. Overall quite mild for a lambic, but very drinkable. Nice. 01-05-09.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at the Grote Dorst in Eizeringen. Foamless and completely flat without carbonation, as is custom in unblended lambic; more or less clear, warm orange blonde colour. Complex, demanding but very fascinating, estery, animalistic and woody aroma, sweet blue grape, redcurrant, old furniture, bitter honey, lemon peel, manzanilla, rosewater, yoghurt... Almost mead-like ’fermented honeyish’ onset adorned with lots of fruity esters, but expectedly more ’noble’ and sedate than in the young lambic Girardin; soft but persisting tartness, more a fluffy lactic acidity than sharp and biting lemon acidity, very complex, fruity finish with a big drying oakiness, light bitter, dryingly sour and very quenching. Clearly a good representative of Girardin’s quality label, this is the most ’aristocratic’ of the old lambics tasted last Sunday in Pajottenland.
