4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
75cl, one of many. This blended lambic is beautifully put together. Craftmanship of the highest standard. Pours a stunning foam head and has a different tasting character when cooled or served at room temperature. Prefer a one year old bottle. Pillowy hazy head, soft, cheese, basement aromas. Start with prominent taste and dials down to support the primal taste : sourness with a hidden sweet touch in the background, wood, dry lemon zest, barnyard... extremely balanced and full bodied! Amazing old gueuze!

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden colour with an average, frothy, short lived, off-white head that laces. Tart, fruity aroma with notes of citrus, brettanomyces and barnyard. Sweet, acidic flavour with notes of fruit, citrus, brettanomyces and a dry, sour finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Cork flew out, but I was ready...
Noe is is funk, horse blanket, a touch of honey, lots of dust, yeast, drop of syrup. Taste is sour with a deep tart finish. Richer than many lambics, it has fruity green apple, lemon, pear leading to tart finish with a slight sweet honeyish note undercutting the tartness.
The mouthfeel is surprisingly carbonated. A very good balanced lambic.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle reading 2011/2012. After uncaging, cork shoots itself into the ceiling and the beer proceeds to gush a third of the bottle into the sink (I’m getting better and opening beers in the kitchen). Appearance: hazy light gold with a lot of rocky white head that doesn’t stick around for more than a minute or two. No real lacing. Aroma: tart lemon; musty; horse blanket funk (starts off very prominent, but dials itself down in short order to just play a supporting role). Taste: lemon, tart (but pretty restrained), somewhat funky. Surprisingly refreshing. Palate: light body, effervescent carbonation; crisp, refreshing. Overall: a different beast of a lambic than Cantillon, but fully delicious in all regards.

An excellent lambic! Only got to have a taste of it at a local bar, but it was well worth it! Just attempting to break into the lambic/sour craze, so would love to try it now that I am in love with these styles!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy light orange, it looks delicate; minimal head; aroma is apples, funk and zest; taste is uncompromisingly sour, apples, white grapes, white wine; ok, but I didn’t find it as compelling as the 3 Fontainen or Boon examples.
