Second batch. Limited to 1000 bottles. First batch was 100 bottles.

De Troch lambic aged for 1 year with cherry blossoms (Sakura), the national flower of Japan. I think that the first batch used 1 – 2 year old lambic whilst the second one was 4 months old, I am not sure. I think that the aging was done in Japan, once again speculation about this mysterious brew.

Bottle nr. 350/1000. 75 cl. bottle sampled @ GBF 2013. Darker amber orange than expected with some white bubbles. Smell is fruity, tad sweet, flowers, oranges, lemon, flowers with some funk. Taste is bitter oranges, musty with some funk, citrus, light cinnamon, malts showing a bit, some bitter citrus peel and some barn. Reasonable body and little in the way of carb. Sakura is a very interesting “fruit” for sure to add to lambic, I really enjoyed this, quite a bit more than the Ume one. Bit confussed about the complaints about sweetness a lot of people had because from what I get sakura simply has a very sweet and rose-like flavour. You wouldn’t expect a banana-lambic to be über-sour either would you?
