Alengrin (2076) - BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2014
True artisanal faro as there were hundreds in the 19th century. This one is based on meerts (the stage which precedes actual young lambic). Brownish amber colour, no head as is custom for the style. Aroma of hay, residual sugars, candi sugar, lemon peel, tea, sweat, barnyard. Very light and refreshing in the mouth, no carbonation, soft lactic acidity tempered by sweet candi sugar, wheaty, spicy hints, fresh sourish finish in which the candi taste also lingers a bit. Very authentic and very refreshing, I could drink this all day.
