Also at mouder lambic. Much as M. Jackson always says, "the seduction of the presentation of Belgian brews" the unwrapping of the bottle, the basket, ooo yes. Smells bitter and of citrus fruits Flavor is sour but very dry and hoppy also. Complex. Pairs well with the dank cheese. Hops and lambik, an American beer lovers dream when traveling through Brussels. Backdoor dry but also starts dry. The middle gets lambik tartness on the tongue. Odd and excellent

UPDATED: APR 19, 2017 Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours cloudy amber. Aroma is sweet prune, cherry, candy, sour barrels. Body is medium, quite tart and lightly sour, lively carbonation, quite some wood flavours towards the palate. That one is sour and lingering on stone fruit. Good!

Robe dorée, fine mousse. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes sauvages, animales, des céréales, des fruits acidulés, une pointe balsamique, des levures. Bouche tout aussi impressionnante par sa tension et son équilibre, le fruit est délicat, la bulle est ciselée et la finale longue et digeste. Un monument d’équilibre et de classe.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl bottle, 3 year aged (2014). Pours a hazy amber, good off-white head. Aroma of soft funky fruity flora. Taste is perfectly crisp and well balanced with a sharp, tart lambic character and a zingy tang that lingers long on the finish. Soft fruity shades, prickly grapefruit and fresh summer meadow straw all contribute to layered fruity sour notes emerging from sharp lambic funk. Very very good. Hard to find any criticism here, and I’m sure the three years this has matured in bottle has helped blossom these flavours perfectly.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour a deep copper with a foamy white head.
Aroma is lovely of country grass, orange zest, tangerine, slight horse blanket, slight green apples, ever so slight barnyard.
Taste is mildly Sour, and very well balanced.
Semi watery body with with a slightly fizzling but still mellow carbonation. I like this.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy bright golden orange with a thin film of white foam. Nose has bitter apricots, orangepeel, leather and mineral flinty notes. Very good. Even some sweet flowery or even pastry notes. Crisp and clean on the palate with mostly light brett, yeasty notes, and light apricots again. Turning mineral in the aftertaste. Must say that I kinda love this right now way more than when I tried it mutiple years ago. This is great stuff, not gueuze but not far off Sainte Adairius stuff.. liking this big time.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is lightly sour with lemons and light green apple. There’s also a somewhat funky aura with wooden notes and old cellar. Taste is a mix from sour apples and lemon that is carried by a lower, sweeter malt base that has a touch of overripe autumn pears. I’d say that the blend is pretty much perfect as there’s no clash between the sweet/sour notes. There’s also some minerals in here which adds another layer and you just have to bow down for the craftmanship in here. Tart in the finish with a balanced bitterness.

Della produzione di Nino Bacelle, io berrei anche succhi di frutta o the freddo, qualsiasi cosa. Questa acid sour ale, e spaziale, perchè inizialmente in bocca si sente l’attacco aciso, e poi a fine corsa emerge l’acetico della sour. Mondiale!!!!!!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy rather pale amber body with a white head that laces the glass well. Sour, a bit sweet and strong aroma of barnyard, with some fermented berries and caramel in the back. Strong flavour of barnyard, lemon, some grapefruit and caramel. A touch of sweetness and a moderate acidity in the long finish. Mid-bodied, dry and moderate carbonation. A nice one.
