Bottle. Amber with a nice white head. Aroma is quite sweet, typical lambic notes come through, musty, touch of honey, little caramel. Similar taste. Little sweet with a punishing sour finish. The red currant is a little lost in this one. Delicious

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle shared by Rastacouere..
Appearance : Clear pale orange with small head.
Aroma : Slightly acetic with oak. Citrusy tartness. Light sourness.
Taste : Nice tartness with nice fruits. Not so sour. Very lightly acetic but nothing disturbing. Very nice fruity sour finish. Taste better than nose.
Palate : Nice small fluffy bubbles.
Overall : Better than Cassis and Grape but not better than cranberry. Quite good overall. Rather impressed by this since it wasn’t brewed by an experiences lambic brewer. Nice sharp fruits. Maybe not as funky and rustic as older lambic breweries but still very interesting. I’d have this again anytime.
