3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (from bierkompass.de). Golden colour, not too much head. Aroma is rather sour wooden notes with some slight fruityness as well. Flavour is being quite similar. Aroma was very pleasantly sour lambic like, the flavour gets a bit sweeter, but still the grape is coming through in a bit sweeter way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line :
Wheat, pils malt, citrus fruit and barnyard characteristics intertwine in this crisp P-Lambic.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slim film of foam floats atop the pale gold.
-White grapes are only subtly alluded to. Not the fruitiest of the series, but it’s still elegant and highly engaging.
-Soda cracker impressions come from the crunchy wheat.
-The aroma is not as attractive as the flavor profile.
-The tight, prickly effervescence creates a classy mouthfeel.
-White grapes may not be anywhere near the forefront, but they are intelligently positioned in the flavor profile, alongside the citrusy acidity.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A 37,5 bottle. Pour with the most fantastic fizzy soundtrack from the frothy white head on top. The head stays put on top of the hazy straw coloured body, The nose is fresh and full of frsh green apples and sour grapes. There som bretty notes with fine lactic and accidic notes. Wet hay on top. The taste is powerfull without over doing it. Its sour but still with a very smooth and somehow sweet touch to it, The mouthfeel is both sparkling and smooth with a buttery feeling. Its very drinkable and refreshing and has a long mild sourness as a finish. Great beer...great beer
