37.5cl bottle poured into Loon flute
Poured after letting this sit out for about 30 minutes, but the flavours were still muted together so let it warm to about 55°F before actually enjoying and reviewing.
A: Deep burgundy in color with slight tint of purplish ruby. Single (off-white) fingernail head on medium pour.
S: Mostly lambic funk here with notes of must, aged cheese, soft citrus, and very hidden blueberry notes.
T: Like the nose, the blueberry flavor is quite muffled here. Disappointing considering fruit lambics are usually most enjoyable relatively fresh. I'm curious to know how this drinks compared to other vintages of this beer. The base lambic quality here is very enjoyable and smooth though - must, funk, and rounded - just wish the blueberry was a bit more pronounced.
M: Medium bodied with low carbonation. Very enjoyable here!
O: A quality beer for sure, but this didn't live up to the "hype" for me. I'm looking forward to trying another vintage of this to see how it compares.
