Presentation: 750 ml green champagne magnum corked and capped with a vintage of 1994 on the label. The cork was in excellent condition showing no drying and a minimal amount moisture.
Appearance: Thin white lacing but it is a trademark Brussels style lace, spritzy with numerous tiny bubbles rushing to the top. Hazed hue makes it a dim golden colour.
Smell: Musty, chalky, cellar and corky huddle with mellow but sizeable tart aromas.
Taste: Light to moderate body, tartness is solid but modest as it has mellowed out over the years. Incredibly smooth and crisp. Fruity after the initial wake of tartness. Dry malt character is clean under tartness, musty flavours are more towards the end with hints of dry chalky yeast.
Notes: Simple but has depth, flavourful but not boisterous. This brew shows little aging flaws at all and perhaps could see another decade or two without turning as long as the cork holds up. I’ll be seeking more bottles ASAP. This would be a good brew to break a newbie to the world of lambics.
