3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A clear, gold color with absolutely no head to speak of. A sweet, and fruity aroma - not bad actually. Taste is exactly as expected, incredibly sour, smacking of apples and fermentation. A light body, a slick texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish is medium long, less fruity and more acidic, vinegar perhaps, than the rest. Overall the beer is terribly sour, somewhat woody, and if a beer can taste "old", then this one certainly does.

From a cardboard box @ De Struise, Bruges. 3 year old sample. Aroma has grapefruit, earthy notes and tartness. Pretty typical to lambic. Flavour has grapefruit, orange and earthy notes. Very clean with high drinkability and nothing disturbing. Perhaps a bit simple though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Colore oro ambrato, opalescente. Testa corta e compatta. Olfatto intenso, acido paglierino e vinoso macero, sensazioni di aia e coperta di cavallo. Carbonazione flat. Aroma ricco, acuto, acido e vinoso di spessore, citrico di pompelmo, cedro, limone e lime, retrogusto acido, di mandarino. Nota palatale pastosa, impennata acida intensa. Gusto dolce, acido, poi amaro più incalzante. Finale di paglia e mandarini, pulito, a seccarsi. Corpo leggero, trama vinosa da leggera a media e granacea setosa. Una birra spettacolarmente sapida fresca, con note citriche più secche a dare la giusta misura, di acidità abbastanza pronunciata. Un bel gioiello.
