Lots of diacetyl, could have just been an off batch.

On cask at the Drie Fonteinen lambic room during last week's Belgium trip. Reviewed from notes.

Served in a Drie Fonteinen stange.

Poured a fairly clear moderate orange color with a few bubbles but nothing much else.

Nose brought forward a good dosing of funk, light cheese, and a bit of citrus. Nice combination at this stage. Everything was beginning to meld. Good funk throughout. Light acidity in the flavor after some funk and must.

Light body with just a touch of carbonation and a light bit of acidity. Very tasty.
