4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
See-through dark brown pour with minimal light grayish brown head. Smells exactly like Drie Fonteinen lambic. Seriously. Mouthfeel is awesome. Carbonated enough. Easily drinkable. Flavor is, indeed, nutty but like this awesome nutty lambic situation going on. It’s not AS good as Belgian lambic but it’s tart and funky and delicious.

Bottle, shared by Steve during our brief catch-up and IP trade, an annual occurrence it seems! Many thanks for thinking to bring this for sharing! Dark brown, lively beige head that retains nicely. Aroma is vinous and acetic, underlying dark fruits. No sign of walnuts beyond a nutty dryness in the finish. Quenching and highly drinkable.

Shared with Tony. Dark brown with a cream off white head. Aroma is vinous, vinegar, slight oak. Dry and sour, very good stuff, reminds me a lot of many crooked stave beers. Very good.

Originally reviewed on 6/1/2013. 375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Murky brown. Small khaki head. Nice surface wisps and retention.
Wow, it actually smells like walnuts. Sharp acidity. Lactic. White pepper.
Sharp sourness. A little bit of letdown. Malty. Nuts come out in the back.
Not as dry as Prolegomena. Better body. Nutty.
A unique take. I expected something similar to Prolegomena, but this has a totally different profile.
