Burnished gold with white film.
Musky mead and grape on the nose.
Honey and white vinegar, some toasty grain, with grape skin tartness.
Green apple skin finish and acetic linger.
Crisp, light-medium, fizzy.

Not unlike wine. Not that sour either. A clean if bracing palate cleanser.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Clear bright golden colour with a smooth, white head. Half-decent head retention for the style.

Classic Cantillon lemon notes with a lot of funk. There is a ton of acid on the nose with a light, light, light grape note.

Really interesting. Lots of funk with a noticeable enteric note. Lots of acid with lemons dominating and then a white grape note that sort of sits there. Interesting.

Medium-light body with moderately-high carbonation. Good.

A really solid fruit lambic. There is an earthy note added by the grapes that is really nice. I'd love the fruit to be just a touch more prominent but I'm clutching at straws here.
