look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

750 ml bottle poured into Cantillon balloon. 2014 vintage.

Appearance is a turbid and murky ruby orange. Small one finger head settles rapidly to a small ring around the edge. I love the murky look of fruit sours.

Aroma is very lambic forward with horse saddle, wet hay, goat cheese, and light leather. The fruit is faint but gives off apple, pear, grape juice, and blueberry.

Taste brings brighter fruit flavors with citrus notes not present in the aroma. Tart lemon and clementine morph into red grape, tart young plum, and cranberry. Some apple cider vinegar and balsamic lactic notes come in mid palate aggressively. The funk notes get lost in the fruit and acidity.

Mouthfeel is light with carbonation on the low level of medium. A bit more carbonation would be nice but overall it's close to most other fruit lambics. Sweetness mid palate but drys out nicely on the finish.

A delicious, fruity lambic that doesn't quite showcase the plum fruit but delivers on other flavors. Two complaints, needs a bit more carbonation and a more assertive funk presence in the flavor profile. Other than that most all marks are hit right and drinks akin to a grape infused sour with tannic and bright fruit notes.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

375ml bottle served in a flute.

2013 Edition marked Best Before 29/01/2023.

A: Big pop when opened, it pours a hazy mix of orange and rose color forming a medium, very bubbled and fizzy light rose head. Good retention and lots of lacings left in the glass

S: Very fruity. Strong notes of plums and grapes. Pale malts. Vinager, wood and flowery hops. Metallic notes and the traditional Lambic yeasts

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Funky. Notes of plums, grapes, vinegar and pale malts. I'm overall, quite dry with moderate acidity. A bit metallic and earthy finished

M: Light body. Fizzy carbonation. Fruity and acid aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Excellent Lambic for sour beer lovers
