4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Zythos Bierfestival 2012, Leuven, Belgium. Big thanks to Sebletitje for this. Sebastian ROCKS IT as usual. It pours opaque looking copper with loose tan head. The aroma offers up faint musty prunes and modest sour and tart notes moving toward some woody notes. The taste begins tart and moves into sour notes nuanced by vinegar and fruit skin like tannins. It then heads into a dry finish thinly ringed around the edges by a light sense of some sort of vague fruitiness. Could use a bit more prune influence in the taste. Good stuff nonetheless. Can’t wait to try one with a bit more cellar time. Lovely brew. I’m really enjoying this brewery.

(bottle) pours a murky ruby-amber-brown colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of lemons, mouldy cellars, banana skins, cashew nuts and custard, plum presence is very minimal. flavour is heavy vanilla and lemons, slightly medicinal and oaky, a bit one-dimensional. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, pours a cloudy orange amber with a large off-white head. Aroma of plums upfront, and a little citrus zest. Flavour is fairly tart, with loads of sour plums dominating the flavour profile. There is a bit of funk, and some biscuity notes buried underneath. The plums are pretty front and centre, with a moderate lingering tartness. Great stuff.
