This Lambic is a pale yellow-gold that's not quite clear but almost. It's not hazy enough to be called translucent, even, but maybe "dusty." It builds up a small white cap to about half a finger, maybe slightly less, that leaves more like a frothy foam within a few minutes. It puts down some light patching. Some floaties are visible, and some rise with and settle into the slightly tinted head.
There's something almost like old leather in herein the aroma, lots of earthy must with a mineral aspect to it, lemon zest, an underlying tartness, straw, grass, wood and a bit of white pepper.
The flavor follows suit, plenty funky with a particularly earthy bent, while the mineral element turns toward a hint of something salty or briny, but just enough to add to the character without being "clammy," per se. There's lots of must and it gets quite dry, more hay than grass here, while the lemon juice and almost cranberry-like tart/sour aspect even it out.
At once fluffy and bitingly crisp, the medium body sits well and flows smoothly, though it's powdery dry particularly in the finish. It works quite well for a Lambic, though a hint of astringency mars it slightly at the very end.
