3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled@Black Door, Helsinki. Hazy orangeish amber colour, with a small white head. Aroma is sour wood, some slight berries and a bit sweetness to it as well. Flavour is sour and tart wood along with some sweetness as well as some mild sea buckthorn elements, though from a quite ripe side of them (giving an almost infectionous sea buckthorn element to this). Jessica Heidrich’s St. Eriks and Cantillon are so far the ones who have managed to make something really good with this berry.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy yellow with a small but well retained head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma has a very rich, deep funkiness with some sour cherry and general bright fruit. It’s earthy & lemony... all together very very enjoyable.
The flavor is quite tart & earthy with that citrus rind character. It’s very dry, nicely sour... puckeringly sour with a mild brininess.
Easily among my favorite "faker" Lambics.
