Bottle (750 ml) batch E!018. Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks Julien & Pier-Luc! Golden with a small persistent white head and good lacing. Aroma is lambic like with brett, leather, barnyard, lemon and fruits. Champagne yeast give this beer is own personality though, very unique. Taste is quite similar but more prominent and with wood notes. Dry and tart mouthfeel. Nice complexity and great balance. A tasty and distinguished beer!
