4.13/5 rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Presentation: 375 ml green corked and capped mini-champagne bottle with no freshness date. Artsy label with info about the beer on the back.
Appearance: Dark light orange red hue, skimpy ring of lace from a semi-active carbonation.
Smell: Big tartness, nearly sour. Cherry aroma grows with a faint sweetness and fullness. Light earthy and musty nose within.
Taste: Sourness is nearly puckering at first, the glands and taste buds get used to it soon enough. Light bodied, expressively dry and crisp. Soft earthy and musty notes include slight barn yard, cork and cellar like flavors. Faint grain throughout. Cherry is real tart with a more rounded flavor after-wards. Long finish of tartness and cherry flavors.
Notes: Racy yet simple, withdrawn but traditional. This is true lambic all the way, no sweet syrups or sugars added this is the real thing. I have had samples at the brewery and the trip that the bottles have made produced the same awesome effect without a flaw.
Serving type: bottle
