Very light-colored body and gushing with a white head atop. Clear.
Wow, what a nose. As I mentioned in my Winter review, what this lacks in the sheer unique complexity of the Winter (strange fruits, must, cellar, mineral), it close to makes up for in just pure, unadulterated, bright, lambic goodness. Brett and lactic acid are intensely vivacious here, with lemon, tangerine, lime juice and hugely soft minerality on the back end, bolstering the aroma.
In the mouth it’s just about as good, with a proper attenuation and carbonation and good pucker on the end. Apples, tangerines, lemons and lots of honey, with boisterous but not too intense lactic character, adding a good deal of sourness. I can see why this one is the favorite but I think I like the Winter just a bit more on account of its mysteries.
Bottle thanks to Craig. Pours hazy dark orange with a thin white blanket of head. Peach, aged sharp cheddar. Good Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty golden color Lambic with a medium head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of funky barnyard notes with some tart notes also noticeable. Taste is a good mix of funky barnyard notes with some tart notes and light acidity also discernable. Body is full with good carbonation. Super easy to drink with good level of complexity and well balanced acidity level. Scotty001 (573) - Portlethen, SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle share. Poured a dark golden with a small white froth. Aroma of tart citrus. Medium body, flavour is a bit bland. Disappointing. ThirstyBird (3000) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Pours a light amber with a light haze. The smell is mineral and funk. The taste is pepper, barnyard, some fruit with a tart ending. Fine structure and elegant carbonation.

Cloudy orange color, sparse bubbles rather than full head. Cobwebs and a hint of cheese, feet in the aroma, deep, rich; some bitter orange peel, properly aged Italian salame. Good body, astringency dominates, cedar peel flavor, some cobwebs.
750ml bottle @ Alex’s. Pours a hazy copper orange with a thin off-white head that dissipates. Nose is complex funky notes, earthy, hay, a hint of acidity and light fruits. Flavour is a lot of funk and up front tart bite, smoothing out and with the carbonation mouthfeel creates a creamy like texture. Beautiful... Thank you Alex! lupulist (354) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2016
Pours a murky amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma of lemon rind, funk, and hay. Tastes very complex, yet still with balanced funk and acidity. Long sharp and dry finish. Amazing.
