2010 vintage.

Pours a dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a two finger, yellowish-beige head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.  

Musty aroma with vinous fruit, floral, earthy hops, bready yeast and pale malt.  Estery yeast notes give off hits of apple, banana and booze which counters the strong grape must character.  

Slightly tart medium body with soft carbonation and a combination of zesty spice, musty funk and vinous fruit.  Earthy with floral hops, estery yeast and musty funk.  Peppery spice with a strong grape presence followed by other berries, apple peel and alcohol/booze.  Strong grape skin/must character give it some slight funkiness.  Decent  enough but drinking 22oz was a bit much. (781 characters)

On tap chez moeder lambic fontainas , Brussels

The beer pours a dirty yellow color with a white head.
The aroma has a lot of fruit notes, as well as some berries, wheat and a little bit of sugary sweetness.
The flavor is similar and is very fruity. I also get some grain and wheat notes.
Medium mouthfeel and very soft carbonation. There is definitely a lot going on here, but the notes in the aroma and flavor just don’t meld together too well in my opinion. (466 characters)

Thanks Manuele! Bottle at Bir&Fud. Pour is a dark amaber orange with a cream white head and larger open bubbles. The nose is spicy pepper right up front, strong chardonnay characterisitcs, white grape juice, spritzer water. The taste is very sweet white grapes, very champaigne like with out the huge carbonation and a finish much less dry. Very sugary and sweet, rather singular. Creamy medium body and a bit oily. (415 characters)
