Unlike Gueuze this is a blend of lambics all drawn from the same year. As such there is minimal carbonation.

Appearance: bright orange color with a cloudy body. Minimal head which immediately dissipated.

Smell: orange peel, pears, light pepper, and a rounded tart oak aroma jump the drinker. Lemon-lime zest opens up on the body. A leathery backbone loaded with a damp funkiness lingers throughout.

Taste: tame woodiness with a flowing bouquets of floral citrus fruits. The oak increases in intensity and tartness on the body. Palate is pulled through the ringer on the finish with a peak of tartness which leaves you pulling for more.

Mouthfeel: excellent slow progression of the oak profile throughout. Bright citrus fruits shine.

Overall: an incredibly tasty lambic. The younger beer really shows off the brighter side of lambic. A fun journey.

First taste was not really what I was expected but once I got past that I rather enjoyed it. Nice blend of oak and sour funk.

Not much carbonation, although this was expected. Copper/amber color. A few small bubbles floating on top. Sour fruit nose - nice, although not particularly complex. Earthy sour flavor. White grapes. A little meatiness. Nice, although again, little going on here besides the sourness. Relatively thin body, although fine for the style. Overall, a nice sour beer, although probably not worth the price tag.
