Corked bottle from 16th Street Liquor, West Vancouver
vintage 2012-2013, bb 29/01/2023

The color is murky, with orange-pinkish hue, well carbonated, with a medium sized persistent head. The carbonation brings too much yeast sediment to the top of the bottle, once open.
The aroma is pungent, very citrusy, with scent of old cellar, horseblanket and some fruit vein (7+).
The mouthfeel is very dry, excessively carbonated; the acidity level is very high, not the strongest; the flavor profile is simpler than expected, the fruit is mildly present, luckily it has a moderate, pleasant astringency; also quite lemony; and with traces of yeast (7-). The final is sour but weak and without emotions.
Still better than the foreign attempts, but not the best inside the Belgian panorama.
