4.7/5 rDev +3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
A: Murky raspberry color, with a thin layer of head that dissipates into a tiny layer of bubbles, leaving minimal, foamy lacing.
S: Sour yet sweet, with a distinct barnyard scent. Lots of berries and some fresh herbs, with some other fruits also making an entrance (grapes, dark cherries).
T: A truly great lambic. Lots of berries and grapes, with an acidic finish. Very tangy and funky. Lots of great lambic character. A touch of merlot/bordeaux on the aftertaste, but not as much as I expected.
M: Soft and slightly chewy. Medium bodied. Acidity provides a nice, mid-palate tingle, but it finishes clean.
D: As it warms, it only gets better. I could drink this forever.

4.49/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Nice and elegant: a cloudy/hazy purplish (sort of vinous, ruby reddish) body. Pink/off-white foamy head with some decent retention and lacing
S: An assortment of a vinous sour, tartness, and funk surface the notes of lemon, cherries, grapes, berries, apple, and oak
T: Exquisite tartness and Lambic funk among the berries, cherries, & grapes. The acetic, citric, and vinous compositions are impressive
M: Lots of great carbonation with this light to medium bodied Lambic
O: I expected great things, and I got great things. In its complexity it’s a very well balanced funk, fruit, vinous Lambic that delivers
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle at Cafe Derat
Straight pour builds up a head that falls apart in seconds. The body looks like a wine with its red color.
Grapes and funk dominate the nose. Slight wet woodiness.
Big Merlot grape flavor, sharp tartness, lingering musty funk.
Prickly, light body, and dry.
A winner for sure. The flavor is so good. Even popped a bottle with some spaghetti bolo in Belgium cuz why not. The grape flavor is so nice.
