Bottle pours hazy reddish brown with a big head, exteemely carbonated. Nose is rustic raisin, grains, dark fruit, tart, oak. Taste is tart dark cherry, cola, grape, vanilla, plum, red wine. Finish is tart earthy dark fruit, grape, leathery, and some barrel notes. Good, but not really worth the price.

Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Amber colour with touch of red. Big, bubbly shiny off white head. Aroma is light raspberry, bit of creaminess, herbal. Taste has similar light fruitiness, bit of funkiness and a touch of sourness. It’s nice enough, but it’s nowhere near as nice as the Belgian equivalents. Too much booze and too little funk.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft… Clear Longhorn-orange ale with a quickly-dissipating white head. The subtle bouquet offers faint notes of grapes and dried fruits along with a rumor of smoke. Full-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is lightly tart and mildly bitter up front, and then tangy and minerally on the backside.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours murky amber with a beige head. The aroma is tart and has the grapes apparent along with berries, lactic acid and funky / wild yeast. It has a medium rich smooth body (could be due to getting last pour from bottle) and light soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with malty caramel, tart berries, sweet grapes, bugginess and pepper. The finish has earthy / funky / buggy farmhouse yeastiness, spices and sourness. Pretty nice.

@ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Dark amber/red colour, nice thick layer of white foam. Medium carbonation. Fruity aroma (red fruits), also a vinous character. Sweet with sour notes. Complex and easy drinkable. Very good!

Una birra che fa decisamente onore al patrimonio italiano delle birre acide. La nota fruttata è decisamente rilevante, con un impatto citrico che poi si evolve in un netto sentore di frutti rossi che si espande su tutto il palato. Non c’è da aspettarsi una lambic stile Cantillon, ma se ci si aspetta invece una sour ale fruttata le aspettative saranno abbondantemente ripagate.
