375 ml. bottle @ home. Procured from De Hopduvel in Gent. BBF 09/07/2023. Pours a hazy – touch darker than expected – orange & a white head which doesn’t last. Nose is huge on the funk, reminding me a bit of the Hanssens geuze, this is the first variant to truly smell like lambic to me, barn, raw funk, hay, funky berries, big & complex in all the right ways in all of those aspects. Tartness is definitely there & works wonderfully with the huge funk, tart green fruits & barn. Taste is definitely the most complex of the series so far for me & first true lambic in taste. Old lemon peel, tart green fruits (I do not know how Seabuckthorn tastes like), HUGE funk, barn, raw, sour, white pepper, hint vinegar, this is sour but in a good way, carrying the right balance, old rotting wood, big horseblanket, lemon juice, tart berries getting to me, young apples, citric. With a substantial hay, peppery & light brett body. Easily the most impressive one of the fruit ones so far, incredible how far they have come so quickly, this fits amongst the better Belgian ones flawlessly. This is how all future entries need to be like. The sourness quite gets to you after in a while but in a good way, this is real sourness with complexity & balance.

Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty yellow color ale with a medium size foamy head with average retention and very minor lacing. Aroma consists of sour and tart note with funky notes and barnyard flavours. Taste is also dominated by tart and sour notes with light acidic touch with funky barnyard notes easily noticeable. Light oak notes can also be detected with the buckthorn notes easily blending in the mix. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very interesting beer that I could see myself trying again.
