Enjoyed at Open Baladin in Roma.

This pours a beautiful ruby red color with pink foaming. There’s a tart aroma, light and dry, which gets sweeter as it warms. It has a pleasing, rounded tartness. I keep tasting cherries, with a touch of a funky undertone. This was incredible, a real treat to try.

2012 750ml served into a Crooked Stave snifter on 7/4/13

Appearance: Looks like a framboise. Appearance could not be better from my eyes. Ruby/pink hue amazing color with decent amount of carbonation. Appearance was my fav part of this, but I need to age the other '12 for 3-4 years to max out the taste.

Smell: Grapes, slight acidity detected. Barnyard funk. Hay, really deep smell to this one. Had Blabaer yesterday, and I can tell this beer is going to be a contender.

Taste: Lacing draws into your mouth followed by merlot grapes, a lot of earthy qualities to this beer.

Mouthfeel: First thing noticed was the carb lacing, followed with the smoothness of this beer. Very enjoyable. The presence of the lacing definitely plays a factor in '12 bottle.

Overall: I am really enjoying this one. As far as Cantillon, Saint Lam and Blabaer now are past Fou Foune for me. Saint Lam is artfully crafted, even more than Blabaer IMO. The balance of this lambic is intense. Opened DDG today too, and Saint Lam is more enjoyable by far for me. Can't wait to open the '08 for my brother's 40th!!!
