4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, thx David for sharing. Beautiful hazy bright yellow-gold pour with smallish white head. Aroma is quite acetic, pineapple fruitiness, honey, funk, light butterness, lots and lots of wood. Taste is slightly acetic as well, a bit of citrus fruit, quite american tasting for a pseudo lambic but very tasty nonetheless. Slightly thicker palate than the previous bottles, well carbed with a strong sour finish.

Pours blond/orange with almost no head (white). Some lacing. Aroma is of fruits, pineapple, sweetness, funk. Taste is of fruits (pineapple), acid acetic, citrus, funk, barnyard. Palate: ligth-medium body. Overall: Very good and impressive. Way better than what I expected. Not too cloying acid-wise. I would gladly drink some more of this.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by David Paquet, huge thanks! Straw color with minimal head and little to no lacing. Aroma of wood, honey, pineapple, leather and hints of apple. Taste is acetic with strong wood notes, pineapple, grapefruit. Tart finish. Mouthfeel is dry and astringent(!). Very nice beer! Like said by of my tasting partners (didn’t remember who, Julien?), it was at his place in a lambic tasting, but also share some particularities with Saison style beers.
