Bottle, shared by myself, in the library... just now.
Pours golden with a big white head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is quite funky, earthy with a bit of horse blanket & wet limestone. There is a bit of wood and a lemon zest like brightness. It’s a really nice smelling beer although I’m not catching much orange in the bouquet.

The flavor is very dry with a lightly puckering sourness. It’s got a fair amount of oak and earthy bitterness especially for what I’ve seen from this series, but I like that a lot about this one. There is a citrus like fruitiness to it and if you’re looking for it, yes there is a nice orange flavor amidst the lemon and zesty flavors, although blind I’m not sure I’d identify "orange" so easily. It’s just got a nice balance of earthiness, brightness, and acidity... everything plays well together here, nothing dominates.

A really nice beer on all accords

This was a weird combo. I liked it for sure, but not quite for the price. Never had such a strong orange and citrus presence with a vinegary base. Weird but nice.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle at home in a snifter. Pours a yellow-orange with small head. Aroma is citrus with orange, lemon, and peach for some reason. The taste was an orange sour, but mild in fruit. Sourness was about a 5 out of 10. Dry, clean. A little bigger body than usual for a lambic. Overall enjoyable.

Bottle. Fruity and unexpectedly creamy aroma with a bright, orangey sourness. Tingly sweet and sour flavour with orange, white grape, cranberry, and cherry. Light body, high carbonation, dry.
