It poured a hazy red liquid with a very small reddish foam. It had a strong sweet and sour smell of gruits and berries. It tasted fruity and yeasty. But I couldn’t really feel the blueberries, tasted more like black currant and other red berries. It was also a bit watery and lacked some depth and roundness in the mouthfeel. Sorry to say that it didn’t live up to my expectations, not one of the better lambics I’ve had.

Bottle @ the RBESG08 Grand Tasting.
Pours hazy red-pink with a small, pink film head. Aroma is sweet, with fresh berries, some light tartness, caramel and barnyard. Dry and fine mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly tart, good berries. But there just isn’t enough of an otherwise good thing in here.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2009 Sampled at the RBESG08 grand tasting. Murky deep violet with a ruby head. Fresh cidery bleuberry aroma with some slightly sharp barnyard notes. Nicely balanced acidity.
Second sample at SB&WF 2009. Very refreshing and well balanced. Wonderful!
