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

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.
