3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Dark hazy velvet red, white head which dissipates to nothing quickly. Nose is tart and sour, white sugar, cherry, cherry Bakewell Tart, cinnamon. Taste is tart and sour first with a medium to high hit of sourness, then soft dark cherry, sweetness. Lactobacillus is lip puckering. This is very decent. Definitely on the tart side of the lambic rule book. Lactic acid is very strong.

Tout aussi agréable que le jeune lambic, le vieux possède un peu plus de complexité et de longueur.

Side by side with the young one. This one logically pours darker. Smell is more fully, more wood. Taste is full, sharp, bit bitter, sweet touch. Some malts. Bit funk and some sourness. Far less impressive than the young one

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.
