3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled February 2014
A steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a two finger thick, pale purple stained, light tan colored head. The beer is a deep purple, concentrated amber hue that shows a brilliantly clear, rich purple hue when held up to the light. the aroma has a slight concord grape like note followed by a bit of buttery oak character, and perhaps even a touch of ripe cheesy character. Grassy, foxy, wild grape like notes, a light, but pervasive musty character, and some toasted, pale oak woodiness is also her in the aroma.
Lots of fruit, a nice tartness, a bit of aspirin like chalk / mettalic character, and lots of tannic oak / fruit skin character. The fruit character is quite rich here, lots of red grape like character, a bit tannic fruit skin character that has lods of fruit flavor along with it. Lots of buttery, and a bit of ripe cheese character adds a bit of balance and funk to the flavor; contributed by the oak, perhaps the fruit, and the fermentation character. Lots of tannins here contribute to a palate texture that is a bit richer than the light body would have otherwise suggested. The beer has a very soft sweetness that almost seems suggested due to the rich fruit character.
The fruit character adds a definite richness to this beer, and it is nicely balanced by the tartness, a light funkiness, and a firm oak character. This is a really nice beer that I am quite enjoying. I would not describe this as a Lambic at all, as it falls short in the funk and complexity that I like to see in the best of those, but it is quite enjoyable in and of itself.

A l’apéro dans le jardin, sous les lianes des plants de kiwi, c’était bien rafraîchissant. Bien acide avec un fruit expressif, je la préfère à sa sœur "SpontanGooseberry"
