Bottle. Poured hazy purple color with minimal fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good tart grape & yeasty aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy sour fruity flavor with a solid tart fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout lambic.

Keg at La Capsule, Lille, France. Clouded red to brown with white head. There is a fruity sweetness which is cut through by a tannin tartness. Woody notes, sharp and tangy, rich on the palate. Very pleasant.
