750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle number is smudged.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange body. Big white head and great retention.

Smell - Smells fantastic. Herbal. Very oaky. Light lemon citrusy acidity. Smells kinda like Mamouche. Has that peppery characteristic.

Taste - Orange and lemon. Lightly tart up front. Has that peppery flavor again. Accentuates the orange. Pale malt. Dry grass. Woody in the back end. Fantastic.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Moderate sourness.

Overall - Well damn this is good. Truly impressive. Challenging the standards of great lambics in complexity.

750ml bottle from the 2014 release. Poured into a Drie Fonteinen stemmed glass 9/5/2014.

A- Darker medium copper body, clear with a one finger white head; good retention, plenty of lacing. Looks the part. [4.25]

S- Very focused, intense lemon, citrus and oak. You can smell the lactic acidity; and there is a slight amount of musty hay, funk. Not as much complexity as OGV, but this holds its own in terms of the smell. [4.5]

F- As the nose portends, this is a very forward beer, with plenty of lemon and oak. Lots of lactic acidity and vinegar that balances out overall to create a very sour AWA. The lemon reminds me a lot of Drie Fonteinen's signature flavours, although there is a bit less funk to be found in this one. Fairly complex but understandably not as complex as the better lambics I've had; but you could definitely convince me this was a Belgian brewed wild ale. As it is, it is heads and shoulders above the likes of Boon, Lindeman's, etc and approaches the level of Armand. [4.5]

M- Medium bodied, substantial feel that is soft and peppery at the same time. Plenty of carbonation that coats the tongue in oaky lemon tartness and then evaporates, leaving it dry and refreshed. Very good, and in my opinion the best part of the beer. [4.75]

O- This AWA is the closest one I've had that could trick me into thinking it was blended in Belgium. At the same time, given the hype and what it takes to get a bottle of this, I'm thinking you might as well invest in the real thing! Still, this was a true pleasure to drink and comes highly recommended. [4.5]

Final score: 4.5125
