Lambiek voert de toon zowel in de geur als de smaak. Licht houtig, citrus en appel. Gematigder in wrangheid en zuur dan een geuze, maar vervangt dit met hop.

fiulijn (19647) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver, batch LCUVNOV14, bb 21/11/19
Hazy amber color with copper hue, large head, reducing to a thinner but persistent layer. The aroma of true Belgian Lambic, old dry /cellar, but also with a sweeter note. It’s very interesting how it blends the /flavors in a similar way, malty and mellow, but with a strong cellar and horseblanket character; a bit astringent in the final; candied orange peel too comes to mind. This is a very accessible but also elegant Lambic.
