750mL bottles over the years. Many 2007+ bottles including some over the hill 2003 bottles. Pours a ridiculous muddy deep purple with a fizzy white head. Aroma of musty grapes, oak, Merlot, raspberry, cherries. Comes across almost as a Framboise and really not so different from Don Quijote. Taste is grape skin tannins, sweeter Merlot grapes, citrus tartness, lactic raspberry, sharply citric, tart blueberry and strawberry come to mind. High carbonation, effervescent mouthfeel. Full on yogurty lactic. 2010 and 2011 bottles are so good right now. One of my favorites.

750mL bottle poured into a tulip; 2011 batch

Ruby red (almost plum) colored body with a thin cap full of tiny bubbles. Musty red wine grapes, barnyard, soft oak, lightly aged cheese, and lactic tartness. At first the nose seems real straightforward, but as you keep diving in, more layers reveal themselves. On the palate, sweet yet tart red grapes up front, with a mustiness coming out mid-palate. Barnyard notes through the middle with some oak before a final rush of cherries and grapes. The finish is crisp and dry. A long lingering tartness in the finish. The body is on the light side of medium with perfect carbonation. This lambic is a great bridge beer for the wine drinker. Loads of wine grape flavor with a moderate tartness. This could easily win over some wine drinkers. I found this to be delicious. The flavors are bold, and really release off the palate quickly to reveal this lingering tartness that satisfies the sour cravings.
