4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice orange pour with a big white head. Really balanced aroma to this. Some vinous notes, grass and earthy funk, some mild must, tons of yeast, and a good green apple tartness. The flavor is quite dry and yeasty. Tons of must, some grass, a bit of oak, and lactic sourness. Very well done beer.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the mondiale 2014.
Clear golden pour, with a hige white head. The aroma is ALL funk. Unbelievable amount of funk. Horse blanket, super sour lemon, wet hay, and crusty bread are all present. The carb is perfect, and the mouth feel is very good. The finish is just all funk. This is one of the sourest lambics ive had. Its so sour the finish actualy starts to detract from some of the subtle flavours. Good but not great.
