On-tap at Northdown. Served in a tulip.

A - Purple foam settles to a thin collar and specks of lace. Very dark purple-blue body.

S - Blueberry skins, some tartness, touch of mineral that is more consistent with the first batch of Spontan- beers. Light lactic and lemony sourness to it. Wish there was more intense fruit here, but on the whole it's pleasant enough.

T - The taste is similar, with very understated fruit. Some under ripe blueberry skin and perhaps a hint of fleshy sweetness. Less mineral, and more lactic sourness in the finish. Curious what lambic was used to get an 8.5% beer, but the flavor profile was quite similar to Cantillon for me.

M - Smooth texture, medium body, lower carbonation, and no discernible alcohol. Moderately juicy, with a dry finish. Came out of the tap super foamy which I think killed a lot of the bubbles.

D - Nice enough, but I'm not sure it warranted me sticking around until 7pm to try it. Neither enough fruity sweet, nor enough lambic sourness or funk; just kind of understated and meh for me.
