3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
The unblended lambic which is the basis for the Mort Subite range, not commercialized as such, tasted at Weekend der Spontane Gisting. A different lambic, amber coloured, flat and headless as expected, bit weird aroma, woody, tea leaves, next to the funky, sherry- and barnyard-like flavours one can expect in a lambic, sour. As with all unblended lambic, I suppose quality varies from year to year and from cask to cask, but I liked the Girardin, Lindemans or Cantillon ones better.

Excellent....sour wheatgrass aroma. Great plaque busting sourness. Very dry and crisp. Awesome example of a lambic style brew.

From foeder @ Mort Subite. Brewed 4/11 and 3/10. Deep golden color, clear. Citrusaroma. The 2,5 year old version is complex and has a sharp citrus flavor, the 3,5 year old version has eased and mellowed and has developed buttery flavors. Amazing complexity, excellent lambic!

Tap @ carnivale, masterclass by h. Ertie. Clear golden color, no head. Aroma has more oak and green apple. Citric acid sourness, very dry. Lacks a bit complexity for me.

Got this at the Mort Subite pub in Brussels. Came in the glass a yellow color with little head and low carbonation. The nose is citrus. Medium in body and dry in the mouthy. The flavor is sour citrus. Long dry sour finish.
