3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with a best before of 29/01/2023. Pours with very low carbonation, no real head formation. Deep strawberry hued body with medium-low clarity. Aromas are of plums, jammy, medium vinous, wet wood, rhubarb pie, mild brett, earthy, musty. Very fruit forward, mild skin tannins. Flavors are very tannic, huge jammy fruit, plum, light baby food. Acidity is medium and about as strong as the tannins. Medium funk, wet hay. Juicy. Low carbonation. Mild cheesiness. Lots of tannin, thicker body for a lambic. Could use quite a bit more carbonation to help with brightness and carbonic acid. Good, but I’d take the gueuze over this any day of the week.

375ml green bottle, corked. 2013-2014. Best before 06/02/2024. Pinkish orange pour, cloudy, a few floaties in spite of my careful pour. No head or lacing, steady rising carbonation bubbles in the glass. Has a complex nose with barnyard, plum/fruits, lemon/sour. In the mouth the beer is very tart, vinegar and lemon notes, wet oaky hints,spiky sour fruits. Dry end, wood on the tongue. Medium viscosity, but lively carbonation. A lovely treat, an interesting and satisfying fruit lambic.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ Armin’s apartment. Thanks to Luke for sending! Pours a cloudy, slightly dark orange appearance with a bubbly white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Funky, cobweby, bright fruity nose. The plums are super nice in the nose. Hay loft, dusty, cheesy aroma. Good carbonation. Kind of spritzy. Moderate lactic acid in the mouth. Complex, barnyard funky, juicy flavor. Some cheesy notes. Not much acid burn on the finish. The fruit is really nice in the background and not too dominate. Dry herbal, grassy finish. Great beer.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, 2013 bottle, thanks a ton Aaron for this long time want! Aroma brought notes of big sour fruit, oak, funk, basement, nice fruity notes with some stone fruit, hints of grain. Taste is a mix of grass, grain, biscuit, bread, touch of funk, yeasty basement and dusty notes, nice fruit, finishing fairly sweet, very tart, dry. Very tasty, could drink a lot of this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy light brown/reddish color lambic with a large foamy head with good carbonation. Aroma consists of tart a funky noes with some very subtle notes of plums. Taste is dominated by tart notes with subtle notes of plums with a light barnyard finish. Acidity level is well balanced with some oak notes easily distinguishable. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Enjoyable but I would have thought the plum notes would have been more pronounced.
