Was really excited to get to try this one, pulled out at the Alewatcher/Oreo party extravaganza.
My pour color looks like a fall sunset low in the sky, a warm gold color, almost white cap that leaves the stickies about.
The aroma gets exciting and intriguing, just makes you dig deep into it and just takes you out to a wild ranch, musty and funky, like worn leather cowboy boots, rubbed against the cattle and spit on. Crazy image, but dig into it and imagine this scene, you will be taken there.
The flavors have this character but with the acidic vinegar flair added, and some brightness from some tart apples and pears.

750ml bottle with foil and C&C. Poured into a Cantillon stemmed glass 5/19/2014.
A- hazy brown-orange body, much like a lighter apple cider. Effervescent two finger white head with great retention, nice film and some lacing.
S- Very intense, funk-forward nose. Peppercorns, lemon rind, grape skin, musty hay, leather, tangerines, lactic acid. So much going on. Impressive.
F- Bold and aggressive. Citrus, lemon zest, apple skin, musty hay, black pepper, lots and lots of funk that dominates the palate. Just enough yogurt lacto in the dregs to make me smile. A vinous finish reminds me of a nice champagne.
M- Medium bodied, perfectly carbonated and not too fizzy; nicely effervescent and drinks with a real pop! Funky, musty and lemony finish.
O- I see why many argue that this is the best of the 4. I liked Zomer's subtlety that didn't sacrifice much intensity, but this is right in your face intense and incredibly complex. A lambic for the ages.
