Had the privilege of having one of these at the Upland release with a select group of beer enthusiast. Seeing as how only 48 bottles made it out of the barrel this is without a doubt the rarest of the lambics released.
Drinkable right there with the other Lambics. very easy to drink and palette friendly. Some barn yard character as hold true with the others but this one has a distinctly different flavor. Sourness is kept to a minimum at this point but is there but will only increase over time as this bottle continues to age.
The fruit taste is not as present up front as it jumps out on your tongue after you swallow leaving a pleasant after taste.The oak is very present both in the nose and taste and it is very fresh.
I think these could use a little more age to really jump out both in sourness and flavor not in a bad way but in the best way!
Wish more of these could have made it through the barrel explosion but minus the 2 bottles I seen drank there are still 46 more bottles
