3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear a light amber color with little head despite an aggressive pour into a tulip. Aroma is grass, hay, sweet funky cheese, skunk (green bottle)(still pleasant), light citrus (lemon), weak vinegar, and a smell that is dusty in nature I haven’t had before. Taste is sour and vinegar at the front but weak enough I didn’t pucker at all, then lemon, citrus, and grass follow in an extremely clean manor, and a very dry flat finish. Overall I’m sure it was better before being bottled in a green bottle and shipped to the US and the time it took for me to grab it off the shelf. Still impressive blending though.

As far as lambick go, this was pretty disappointing. Generally flat, from the aroma, to the main body. The funk is is vfar too subdued for what I was hoping for today. And really expensive. One-time buy.

First pour is a clear light gold colour with a small head of foam. No sound was made after I popped the cap and removed the cork.
Big sourness grips my nose buds with every whiff. No fruit sourness that I can detect. It’s all a wine like vinegar like sour.
The taste is big sour. Again, there’s a lot of winey vinegary tartness that explodes on my palate along with the woody notes from the French oak. And of course, the finish is ever so dry.
More carbonation than I thought it would have after hearing zilch when I removed the cork. Not in excess by any means.
I have 1 other beer from this brewery so when I saw this, I had to give it a go. I am glad I did.
