2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by friends. Damn god… got to love that poopy diaper smell. NOT. Some brettanomyces, and wet shoe leather.
Unfortunately it tastes just like it smells. Mouthfeel is over carbonated and fizzy. I just don’t think I will ever enjoy any Lambic unless it has some fruit or is real old. And maybe not even then… What really makes me sad is how much was spent on this bottle. $50.00 U.S. Screw that.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed it, easy to drink and light to medium sourness. The champannoise method (degorgement) gives it a good look. It would be a nice introduction to the style if the price wasn’t so high. Unfortunately not worth the 50$+ asking price.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Initiated by wine makers, ’champenoise’ version of Oud Beersel lambic, since 2013. Coarse, loose, off-white, quickly collapsing, champagne-like foam, colour light blonde with greenish hue like a witbier, misty. Powerful and very eccentric aroma of dry sherry, white grapes, lemon zest, straw, grapefruit, green apple, strawberry vinegar, sweat; taste begins with a lively fruity acidity (apple, kiwi, gooseberry), subdued lambic character of which the wheat comes through most conspicuously, citric acid, soft tingling mouthfeel very comparable to champagne or prosecco, vinous, finishing in a light grassy and peppery hop bitterness, long and dry. The crazy idea of making flat lambic sparkling by applying the champagne-making method to it has been well executed here, I even dare say this is an important addition to Belgian beer culture but I still have to get used to this kind of beverage. A very suitable apéritif, that is for sure.
