From the 2012-2013 brewing season. High Salinity and full sharp acid mouthfeel push this beer into my book and pairs great with olives

Poured into Iris glass.


Appearance is light apricot orange, fizzy white head that settles to thin ring on the edge of the glass, slightly hazy body.


Aroma is certainly aged lambic in essence. Super cheesy, lemon and loquat, light apple cider vinegar, golden delicious apple, cobwebs, and a barnyard presence.


Taste leans more towards the fruity side. Lovely apple presence, lime, lemon, mandarin, and a soft white grape note. The funk is very balanced between grassy/green earth and cheesy/musky basement characteristics. Merged with the fruitiness it's a damn fine lambic.


Mouthfeel is light bodied with a soft carbonation that prickles the edges of the mouth and cleanses the palate nicely. Dry finish and the tartness is subdued.


This is fantastic. I had to elevate the overall score on this simply because of how balanced and sophisticated this feels. And at 6 years old this has developed no off flavors yet has such a rounded, (aged) taste. More citrus than Mariage Parfait, which is awesome.
