From bottle at shared tasting at Bryne with RB/HD and Bryne fråhaldslag 18.08.17. Cloudy pale straw. White head. Superb aroma of apricot and sourness. Similar and sour and acid taste. Good!

Z cyklu uzupełnianie paru zaległych ocen. 2015. Morele nadal zaskakująco obecne i smakowite. Ocet sporawy. No, dobre, tak na upał akurat. // 2016. Aromat nieziemski. Mega morela. Smak nieco gorszy, ale i tak wymiata. Ultra przyjemnie kwaśne.

2015 bottle @Moeder Lambic Great fruity and lambiek aroma. Taste is lambiek, apricot, apricot skin, fresh grass, a hint of almond, nice sour, very well balanced taste. Palate is fantastic; velvet and tart. Aftertaste is more apricot. Fantastic!

I’m in heaven .... beautiful beer. It is overall so classical in terms of stable/leather and wood notes, yet when it hits you with apricot you are really surprised. Marvelous.

750mL bottle. Pours a hazy apricot gold with a medium, fluffy white head. Aroma is apricot, wood, some must, and a little barnyard. Taste is apricot, wood, some hay, a little funk, and a bit of gooseberry. A tiny bit of spice to the finish. A little sweetness before some puckering acidity. Semi-dry. Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Crisp, smooth mouthfeel. Interestingly, as it warms the apricot in the aroma diminishes while the apricot in the taste grows massively. An exceptional beer for a 500th rating!

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/5/2016. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big tart lemon, lime, apricot, peach, mango, pineapple, melon, pear, green apple, white wine, oak, hay, straw, leather, grass, pepper, wet musty funk, wheat, cracker, light vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast, apricots, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big tart lemon, lime, apricot, peach, mango, pineapple, melon, pear, green apple, white wine, oak, hay, straw, leather, grass, pepper, wet musty funk, wheat, cracker, light vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light fruity/lactic tartness and yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, apricot, peach, mango, pineapple, melon, pear, green apple, white wine, oak, hay, straw, leather, grass, pepper, wet musty funk, wheat, cracker, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky yeast, apricots, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt flavors; with an amazing malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Light dryness from tart/spiciness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium-plus carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, creamy/grainy, and fairly acidic/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is an insane fruit lambic! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky yeast, apricots, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the mellow acidity/tartness. Plenty of funky yeast complexity; with perfectly balanced fruit, oak, and malt notes. A highly amazing offering.
