anstei (2128) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 20, 2017
Bottle pour at the brewery. Pours cloudy darkish amber, no head. Aroma is slightly funky, but clearly a lot stronger in ABV than other Lambic. More malt, little booze. Body is heavy and strongly bitter, only a little sour, but no carbonation or tartness. Some fruity sweetness makes it, but is mostly drenched in bitterness. Short palate, a bit of booze. Not a beauty.
