4/5 rDev -3.6%
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Lightly hazy. Medium white head that settles to an off white collar.
Smell - Very strange aroma. Very woody. Cherry pie aroma. Lightly lemony. Kinda green peppery.
Taste - Very woody up from. That sakura is strange. Cherry is very light. Grainy. Lemony. A little grassy before finishing with an apple sweetness.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Very woody.
Overall - At first, I wasn't a fan. This is very odd, but it grew on me.

Poured from 750mL bottle into Duvel glass.
Mostly flat. Pale golden color.
Smell is intense and complex; tomato/vegetable juice or raspberry; spices (cinnamon).
I'm not sure what cherry blossom tastes like, by itself, but the flavors in this lambic were unexpected.
A tasty and unusual beer.

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?
