davidezdonz (571) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - SEP 12, 2017
A corked and caged 375ml bottle, 2017 vintage. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass. It was a nice ruby red colour with a thin pinkish head that dissipates fairly quickly while leaving sparse lacing. Aromas of tart, sweetish cherries, oak and hints of balsamic. Tastes tart, lightly sour, cherries, hints of oak, but lacking the funk complexity, almost like its missing something. Light to medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Overall, aroma and first sip was pretty good, but midway through and the finish, it just felt like it was missing something. Lacking the complexity of top Lambic brews.

Pinkish, hazy, just a little bit of bubble. Has some acetic, maybe something else a bit wonky under the fruit. Tart, cherry, touch woody, ok, not a lot of complexity, just a bit.

Tap at the brewery. Bright red color. A tall oink lead that mostly fades but leaves a lacing on the glass. Cherry aroma qith yeast. Moderately aour, cherry juice, pie filling, and jam. It is not Cantillon, but it is very good and defiitely in the lambic style.
