3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line :
Well-defined currants move into an acidic and acetic splash for a pleasant, fruity Fruit P-Lambic.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the clear light amber.
-This doesn’t have as much barnyard presence as the base Spontanale.
-Carbonation has smaller, pricklier bubbles than the Spontanale.
-The second half of each sip is particularly fruity.
-This is still a nice introduction to the funky flavors of lambics, if one doesn’t want to get to them too quickly. It’s a refreshing summer drink too, if you can tolerate the acidic finish.

Erfrischendsäuerlicher Antrunk, etwas trocken. Die Fruchtnote ist gelungen, könnte aber besser verhorkommen. Leicht muffig, zum Ende ist die Säure aufdringlich. OK! /10/9/8//9
