Mondial 2009 sample. Light colour, light body with lots and lots of head--becomes a white cream that cushions the mouth. Aroma is a delight, peachy and berry. Funky taste, with fruit. Finish is a satisfying bite. Carbonation right there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mondiale 2009. Pours a hazy large bubble golden with a massive white cobwebby head. Stinky horsye and quite cheesey and actually has a typcial brett lambic like character- light to medium fruitness as well- lemon and grapefruit. Flavor turns a bit worse still horsey and funk, with lots of brett, but bgets a bit solvent, plastic and off- appley cider, acetaldehyde and rubber with a slight salty and slick finish- tartness is there- ok sour. Not a bad attempt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Verre de 4 oz, d’une bouteille, au Mondial 2009. Arômes citronnés de levure sauvage et champêtre. Robe blonde et trouble, très belle effervescence et belle mousse. En bouche, des touches de cidre et de pommes vertes accompagnent une levure sauvage bien présente. Belle texture veloutée. Finale lactique très acide. Intéressant, mais finale un peu agressive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a yellowish colour with a white head. Pretty fruity on the nose with notes of bitter oranges and some funky brett. The flavour has notes of citrus fruits and moderate funky barnyard. Very refreshing without being overly sourish. It somewhat feels like a combination of 50% lambic and 50% belgian pale ale and I kinda like it!
