This is stellar lambic and one of the best new beer releases in recent years. The sherry barrels work magic. There's nothing to knock here save availability.

Served at lambic o Droom . Decanted and enjoyed over an hour. Paired with two sherries that were in the barrels it was aged in.

Pours a darker amber slightly hazy body with a sudsy white head that leaves spotty lacing as it reduces slowly.

Aromas are delightful - lots of wood, oak and sherry. The sherry is big and inviting after decanting. This smells like no lambic I've ever smelled.. sharp cheese and sherry oak dominate with the usual 3F tart acidity, citrus, and white wine in the background.

On the tongue it's delicately tart with a lot of sherry shining here, champagne-like acidity, oak, the follow through exhibits more and more sherry - particularly the sweetness of the dark. Finish is dry with lactic and light funk. Body is medium light, easy to drink, with low carb.

A real treat - one of the most unique and delicious lambics i've ever tasted..

Pours hazy amber with small white head.
Aroma has so much funk, hay, barnyard, dry cellar, lemon tart.
Taste is lemon tart, hay, grass, not as much funk as the aroma, hops, sherry sweetness, extremely very well balanced. Best lambic I've ever had.
