3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2010 Bottle. Nice bright gold color with lots of tiny fizzy bubbles, a small white head, and no lacing. Aroma is vinous and woody with floral, rosy notes. Flavor is just a bit sour with tart fruits like apples and cherry, yet still sweet & balanced. Moderately dry finish and very drinkable. Pretty mellow with 3 years of age. $7.99 seems like a lot for 12.7oz, but compared to other Lambic/Gueuze it’s kind of cheap. Good for a try, but at that price I won’t be buying a ton of it.

0.375 l bottle with a champagne cork from Alko. Yes, do not expect a taste of beer. This is Belgian champagne. Very brut with the expected taste of fruits and, surprisingly, some nuts. Very refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
På Pochennellekelder med Kitty: servert comme il faut i kurv med etiketten synlig: syrlig og lett, etter at skummet har lagt seg (sjenket med nennsom hånd). Allikevel kompleks i smaken med stall, frukter, krydder og fatlagring. Men ikke i samme klasse og prisklasse som Mariage Parfait.
