Shared this at a recent tasting.

Golden-straw color, hazy, with a cap of bubbly white head that quickly dissipated to a thin ring; minimal lacing. Aroma of funky hay, essence of lemon, with the plum coming in in a very subtle way. Good lambic taste, funk and delicate tartness, wet grass, again the plum was pretty light, almost a background flavor--this wasn't a really fruity beer, which might appeal to some and disappoint others--some savory rhubarb notes, and a hint of oak. Light-medium body, crisp and fairly dry, lightly acidic, lower carbonation. Very nice overall.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

750 ml bottle best before February 2017. Poured into a Cantillon Iris glass.

Appearance: Pour a bright gold color with less than a finger of white head that dissipates to a thick ring with some wispy coating. Body is hazy but still transparent with light visible carbonation and tiny amounts of suspended sediment.

Smell: Funky cereal grain aroma with lesser notes of hay, red apple and very mild lemon. Not really really doing anything for me.

Taste: Apple, slight sweetness, wet grain, hay, maybe a hint of white grape.

Mouthfeel: Light/medium bodied with a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Carbonation on the lower side. Finishes semi sweet with a very light sourness.

Overall: Not sure what to make of this one. Really unlike any other lambic I've ever had. I'm not sure if this is back sweetened or maybe entirely young lambic, but whatever it is I'm not really a fan. It's not bad, but I had much higher expectations for this.

Poured from 750mL bottle into Duvel glass.

Golden, opaque. Mostly flat.
Really tasty. Very subtle and enjoyable plum flavor, mixed with the usual (but not excessively funky) lambic notes.
Sourness is not excessive, either, for a lambic, and mouthfeel is smooth.

Expensive, but would buy again, if I could find it somewhere for an affordable-ish price.
