When I had this, it was the best lambic I had to date - so many flavors, incredible nose, wonderful body; just wow.

Sorry Contillon and Bokkenrijder, this is the best lambic I have had! Worth the hunt, worth the money, worth every single minute you give it. Wow! It is almost hard to put into words how much is going on. Plenty of sweeter red wine elements, grapes, sherry booze, lemon, plus other fruits like orange, peach and pear. Then there is the hay, earthy, and beet sugar base that crops up in fun and balanced sips. Plenty of funk, barrel elements and oak to boot. Little bit of everything, amazing!

A 750ml bottle, batch 2, bottled on 26th March 2016 and a best before date of 26th October 2026. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen funnel and decanter, decanted for 60 to 90 minutes and poured into a 3 Fonteinen Zenne glass.

Appearance: A mostly clear golden orange colour with a minimal white head and sparse to no lacing.

Aroma: Earthy funk, barnyard, hay, oak, nutty, sherry, peach and lemon.

Taste: Complex flavours. Funky, earthy, barnyard, sour, lemon, grape, apricot, sherry and oak with a hint of vanilla.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Overall: Wow, such complexity and goodness from a beer. Amazing and well balanced. Now I really want to try this side by side with the sherries and even batch 1, if at all possible.

Zenne batch 2 poured into a Torst glass. Golden orange in color. Not much of a head. Aromas of oak and sherry release from the glass. Picking a little citrus as well. Upon first sip, I’m speechless. So complex yet perfectly balanced. Oak, sherry and subtle nuances of funk and citrus. This is so easy to drink. Perfectly carbed and each sip is a treat. This is the best lambic I’ve ever tasted hands down. Amazing brew!

Batch 2 - Solera
Poured with a Cantillon basket

One hard to describe beer but how interesting to finally try it, I'll do my best.

Slightly veiled, orange, small ring around the glass.

Nose of funk, must, sherry, slightly fruity, hints of outdated hops.

Taste: Complexity over the top, funk, fruity, I feel like my review isn't quite accurate, so hard to tell what this lambic is offering. I've never tasted something like this before!

Wow!
