Seriously this is one of the best beer I’ve ever had. It was of course acidic but also rather flowery with wonderful sweet notes. Had it on a small street bar in Brussels and hated myself for not buying these cheap when I had the chance. Dear Pierre - thank you for selling this to us.

750ml bottle drank into a Lost Abbey glass...Pressure warning here! As soon as I took the cage off the cork blasted off, missing my eye by an inch and slamming into a ceiling. Amazingly, it doesn’t gush at all! The beer pours a dark honey gold with a dark off white head that rises about three fingers with great retention and lacing...The aroma is one noted by horse blanket funk executed supremely. Enough of what you want, not enough to turn off your senses...The taste is more horse blanket, a nice earthy funk, very tastey. The only thing I can complain about is the finish on this beer. It becomes slightly sweet and rough. This is really good and worth trying.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2012 75 cl bottle. Foggy olive yellow with a white head. Nose is toffee and funk with hints of peach; subtle. Medium light, fizzy and refreshing with tiny bubbles. Taste is sweet and tart apple juice, citrus pith, chardonnay and grass. Unexpected sweetness and a lively palate make this an exceptionally drinkable lambic.

750 ml bottle shared by STLWill- thanks again, Will! Big 2009 stamped on the label. Pours a mostly clear orange-gold color with a small, bubbly white head and some visible carbonation. Aroma of bretty and lacto funk, lemon, grape, apple, and oak chips. Flavor follows suit pretty well but I liked it a little better- lots of funk, lemon, and grape, along with tart apples, lactic acid, and pale malts. Medium-bodied, with very high carbonation and a champagne mouthfeel. Pretty cool blend, and I’m glad I got to try this- thanks a lot, Will!

Bottle. Pours a richer clear golden with huge carbonation bubbles. Aroma is quite nice, grassy and sour, but seemingly quite young, sugar, pick up a ton of the De Troch and Timmermans. Flavor follows, great sourness, very smooth, but the sweetness of the Timmermans and De Troch is muddying up what is probably otherwise a delicious lambic! Those carbonation bubbles are so large.
