So delicious. Had it from the bottle at HF, dec 2016. Poured with a ton of head, this is bursting with lambicy goodness. Im not sure how much of the art im picking up, but it really doesn't matter. Tart, with great good body and flavor with a deep hop flavor on the back. This is masterfully crafted, a beautiful collaboration beer that is absolutely delicious

Very wine-like. Light blonde body with minimal head. Nose includes some oak and vanilla but turns toward white grapes and lemon. The acidity is reserved, likely given the age. Wine & lambic. Grape skin. White table grapes. Oak tannins. Hay and funk.

Give it some more time and maybe the butter will go away. Wish it had another 6mos-year for the battle to rage on in the bottle.

Pour is hazed yellow with a tight white ring. Nose has a good bit of barrel with a hint of buttered popcorn and strong citrus and tangerine notes. Taste is stronger citrus with lots of orange pulp and a faint barrel with a lingering citrus bitterness. Light body, flavor is short, a hint slick with assertive carbonation.

I can't believe this has been sitting quietly in my basement for 22 months.
Poured from the 375 ml bottle into a snifter glass.
Pours a slightly hazy dark to mellow golden hue with half a finger of head that recedes.
Aromas are incredible. Full lambic presence, notes of sugary sweetness, notes of light spring flowers in the nose.
Taste is full of lambic tartness with hints of honey, just a hint of sugary candy.
Mouthfeel is fantastic, with perfect carbonation.
This beer is insanely well crafted. It's not a sour bomb. It has full lambic tartness. But the flavor is round, and complex. This beer is world class.
