From ML Fontainas :: Plus une Vieille brune aigre douce >> En tout point magnifique. Une peu comme de la Noire de Dottignies croisée avec la Cuvée de Rank et mûrie en fût.
Cette assemblage offre une une telle maîtrise qu’il livre une dégustation optimale. Nez vinaigré balsamique, boisée, biscuité avec de la cassonade et une amertume herbacée fleurie. Attaque aigre-douce, surette vinaigrée un peu poivrée. Milieu de bouche plus rond, biscuité mais sans sucrosité ni lourdeur, qui se fini sur une sensation gourmande onctueuse un peu épaisse sans être sirupeuse. L’amertume revient en rétro sèche herbeuse fruité à l’écorce d’orange et de citron, et avec une impression poudreuse de cacao. Le tout soutenu par une degré alcoolique qui réchauffe bien le gosier. Beaucoup d’équilibre et de finesse. Manque peut-être une personnalité qui s’affirmerait plus sur la longueur. Ar: 9 - Ap: 4 - Ta: 9 - Pa: Ov:20 #408

On tap at moeder lambic. Hazy brown colour small offwhite microfoam. Nose is medium sourness. Taste is medium high sourness. Plum, faint balsamic vinegar. Metallic notes. Ehh. Might be just that I didnt want to have sour but it didnt really cut it for me.

3.9
JorisPPattyn (10024) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2017
Good yellow-cream head, bit irregular, over deep-brown beer; rings of lace. Contains some very weird UFO’s that come to float UPON the head. Sourish-fruity nose with lactic acid. Wine-drenched wood, old barriques . Hint of madeira, but also balsamico. Liquorice/drop and lactic acid, a marriage of stout and Flemish Oud bruin. Finish is pure fruity oud bruin, but every new sip reintroduces the drop. Acidthinning, quite slick, hint of alcohol all the same, good carbonation. Excellent oud bruin - with just a touch of sweet liquorice stout - which it doesn’t need at all.
