BlackHaddock (6980) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
The regular paper covered green 0.75cl bottle, reviewed when fairly young (drank Sep 2011, Best before date of Jan 2015). Poured slowly into three different glasses, the last one getting some of the sediment within it. Two glasses of clear light amber sat in front of me, the third being a bit darker and not so clear to the eye: none had much of a head, I blame the slow pour and young age of the brew. The smell and taste were as follows: Yeasty cooking apples with an side dish of semi-acidic pears which have began to rot because of over ripeness. I really liked it, refreshing and different.

Smell is sour and slightly sweet with orange juice, honey, lemon zest, bread and barnyard. Taste is sour, slightly bitter and slightly sweet with sweet fruits, lemon juice, orange peal and brett. Mouthfeel is tart and medium-bodied. Finish is tart with lots of citrus.

sebletitje (9910) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2012
Cask @ Moeder Lambic, Fontainas. Dorée/orangée, col blanc. Arôme est bien fleuri, note levure belge, bouquet très agréable fruité tropical de pamplemousse et mangue. Note de houblon restant dans le côté européen, le tout sur ce bouquet fleuri poussiéreux de Girardin. En bouche, reste frais et fruité, je note du tropical; pamplemousse, mangue et agrumes avec une pointe de thé vert et citronnelle, palais donne un léger picotement et garde ce profile de levure belge. Le profile de Girardin se ressent légèrement dans un profile sec et poussiéreux voire de houblon sec le tout sur ce volume épais en bouche de lambic. Un vrai régal.
