750ml, 2009 edition, poured into a Cantillon fruit lambic glass today, 1/22/2014 as part of our cellar/extras cleaning tasting.
App- Pours a slightly hazy dark golden-yellow body. Absolutely no head despite a 90 degree pour into the glass. Without the head, it actually looks more appealing just the same.
Smell- Oak, lots of barnyard Cantillon funk, grape skin, pears, bit of cane sugar. No vinegar in the nose
Flavour- Lots of barnyard Cantillon funk, a bit of grape skin and lemon tartness, with acidic vinegar that makes this a 5/10 sour. Also a bit cheesy. Tasty but certainly not complex
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, flat with zero carbonation (obviously), very drinkable
Overall- Not super complex, tastes a lot like Classic Geuze but flat. An interesting take on the lambic, cool to try but if I had the choice between Classic Geuze and Bruocsella, I would take Classic anytime.
