I've had this bottle for a while now, figured it was time to drink it. Bottled in late 2009.
Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy rose color with a couple fingers of light pink head. Retention is very nice, lacing is limited, and it has a fair amount of carbonation. Nice looking lambic.
Smell: Lots of musty funk, some definite lactic sour notes, and some light grape-y notes.
Taste: Lactic sourness and funk hits fairly hard up front, followed by some slightly sweeter grape fruitiness. That doesn't last too long as some more tartness and funk comes through on the finish. Not really bracingly sour at this point, but a pretty nice balance.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied and lively from the carbonation. Very nice feel in the mouth. Overall, I enjoyed this bottle quite a bit. Glad I have another one coming my way so I can really let it age and see how sour it can get.

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.
