Got to try a sample of this at Moeder Lambic at the pre-TdG Dark Lord tasting extravaganza! Thanks for shairng gents. This was a really fun day!
From a 750ml into a snifter
APPEARANCE: Pours a small white head with good retention. Gamboge in color, hazy, with no carbonation evident. A splotchy wisp and ring remain but leave no real lacing down the glass.
SMELL: Rhubarb I presume, lemon citrus notes a la Cantillon, as well as some funky aromas in there too. Very bold and funky, with the rhubarb making it all the more interesting. Well balanced and enticing.
TASTE: Rhubarb again, with lots of funky and mouldy flavors up front. Some lemon and citrus sourness through the middle with more lemon and some foral bitterness at the swallow. A persistent finish is bold and quite well balanced, with the funk and sourness being nicely balanced by the rhubarb. Nice stuff.
PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy enough on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes dry. Sour and puckering finish. Good stuff.
OVERALL: This one was really nice. Nothing traffic-stopping per se, but definitely something I'd be happy to drink on a regular basis. I completely missed Zwanze Day this year, so I was really happy to give this one a shot at Moeder Lambic. Thanks again for hosting a really fun day guys!
