Infinitely complex in aroma and flavor with notes of maltiness and tartness throughout. An unsurpassed old brown with the richness and complexity of a vintage wine.

Brown with a very thin head, sparkling. Cherries, prunes, vinegar. Dry and sweet, lightly sour. Woody, caramel, cough syrup weird finish. Ok but lacks some sharp sourness to be refreshing.

Bière brune légrement acide fort maltée sirupeuse aux arômes boisés, épicés. De visu elle offre un beau col écru épais persistant à une belle robe rubis sombre. Son nez fort doux exale des senteurs caramélisées aigrelettes avec un houblon aromatique. La bouche fort ronde aux saveurs de pains d’épice, de bois et de fruits confis s’apesentit pas mal dans le gosier avec une acidité quasi nulle mais avec beaucoup de saveur grâce à cet alcool bien présent. J’aime bien l’arrière goût boisé aux saveurs de noyaux de cerises accompagné d’une amertume affirmée mais bienveillante sur une longueur moyenne.

Bottle. BB 09/2024. Chestnut brown with a small light beige head retaining as a thin scattered layer. On the nose it’s sour fruits, cherries, vinegar, wood, berries. Sweetish taste at first, but the tart layer covers everything in a matter of moments. Almonds. Sour apples. I like this sweet and sour ping pong. Crisp thin carbonation. Very acidic. Medium body. Woody dry mouthfeel, but tolerable at that. Alcohol doesn’t show, which makes it surprisingly easy to drink despite the acidity and dryness. The finishing feeling in the roof and back of the mouth remind me of my favorite berries, whitecurrants. It’s lovely.

Although this is not my fauvorite beer style, i was really surprised for such a good beer. Red wine and vinegar are the predominant tastes. An excellent beer for people who are trying to introduce themselves in lambic related flavours

0,375 l paper-wrapped and corked bottle from drankgigant, 2014 vintage. Clear, dark brownish red with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Funky, sourish-fruity aroma of bitter almond, vinegar, raisins, ripe cherries, blackcurrant, red wine and wood. Funky, sourish-fruity taste of red wine, bitter almond, vinegar, ripe cherries, blackcurrant, raisins and wood. The acidity increases and develops into a medium sour finish with strong vinous notes and lots of oak. Thin to medium body, spritzy and slightly astringent mouthfeel, almost flat. Great complex brew, living up to my high expectations. The level of acidity is just so high that it adds to its refreshing character, but doesn’t overshadow the numerous, subtle flavours. Unique!
