AlchemikalGab (48) - Borgomanero (Novara), - DEC 1, 2012
On tap @ Sherwood Pub, Nicorvo, Italy. Its amazing how this drink dug in some taste memories of mine. Poured an absolutely gorgeous golden-orange with a fluffly off-white foam. I could feel the same smell you can find in many basements were they keep wine here where I live, some leather and, last but very present, the rhubarb note, very balsamic, with hints of honey and lemon. Really impressive. At the first taste I could feel the back of my jaw almost aching for the carbonation and the acidity, just like with fizzy candies, then it got really pleasant, the rhubarb/balsamic note mellowing the classic lemony lambic acidity. Very light in body, leaves your mouth dry and craving for more. I really hope it becomes a regular, Im not a big fan of sour beers, but everyone liked it.

Bottle shared at Cantillon. Semi-hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Mineral notes, citrus, lemonade, lambic funk, dank cellar. Dry and a bit mouth puckering. Quite interesting.

Cantillon tasting at the Sovereign. Bottle into a wineglass showing moderately filtered dark orange with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows funky and wild notes of barnyard and brett with very light rhubarb notes. The palate is moderately but smoothly carbonated and medium bodied. Moderately tart with flavors very light rhubarb in the background.
