Vintage 2010: capped and corked

Appearance: Opens with a loud pop when I extracted the cork (I was expecting a foamer but that didn't happen) and pours a cloudy honey color with a spumous head that fades somewhat quickly leaving a few patches of lace

Smell: Lactic crabapple, with pear, oak, Sauvignon Blanc grape, grass, barnyard funk and hay

Taste: Oaky and dry, up front, with a significant lactic element; crabapple, pear and Sauvignon Blanc grape tones building; the tartness builds, into the middle, bringing barnyard funk and hay tones; the finish reveals a nice blend of the fruit and funky tartness

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not many reviews of the 2010 vintage here and perhaps none of them have this much age on it; wow, was I impressed with how this bottle has matured; would be hard to pick this out if one were asked to identify the American lambic from a group of Belgians
