3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at DHVL, pours a clear golden with a tiny head. Aroma is subtle with light funk. Flavour is fairly sharp, with funk, lemon, and leather. Finishes very citric, but well-balanced. Solid one, but not my favourite of the unblended lambics.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask pour@Nacht vd Grote Dorst, Eizeringen 25/04. Pungent apple vinegar acidity morphs into a bland, straight-up citric, musty wood and again viscous apple vinegar attack. Refreshing, with rough edges but no danger for the enamel,
