The Great Lambic Summit..

Golden Orange, crystal clear and flat. Scent is of of soured white wine vinegar, touch of watery apple, grape and orange and mild funk. Taste is acidic, vinous and filled with watery tropical fruits. Medium body, flat and smooth. Interesting, different and definitely unique.

Jean shared this with us at The Great Lambic Summit. Thank you! This is a lambic aged in a single cognac cask for 61 months, yielding 300 bottles.
The nose is flat orange amber with no head, on par for an unblended lambic. The nose is compelling. Stinky, this smells a *little bit* like ass. Coupled with the funky base lambic, it's unique, and the cognac character is quite pronounced. Sulfury, mildly cider-like and with some vanilla, this is mildly vinous.

The palate is super sour with a beautiful fruit bouquet with tropical fruit and a noticeable ripe jackfruit character,especially on the finish. Sour and lingering with some acetic sharpness, this is rather cheesy and funky. Moderate cognac character, there's some grape and tannins. Medium in body and rather flat, this is great stuff. I preferred the 50N4E more, but I would not turn this down if offered to me!
