750ml bottle that I think I traded a medianoche for. Hazy orange color. Fruity aroma, funkiness in the flavor along with more fruit. I couldn't pick out the grape varietal if I wanted to (despite the label) but this was a really nice lambic. Need more.

750ml cork and caged bottle, 2017-2018 vintage. Tilquin tumbler glass. Slightly cloudy golden body, one finger frothy white head, fair retention, not much lacing. Smell is big white wine grape juice, leathery funk, lemon, a bit of pepper, wet oak, more grape must. It has that funky wet hay character that I've come to associate with Tilquin's lambic, and that all follows through on the palate. Sweet white grape fruit, mild-moderate lemony acetic acid, wet hay, a bit of leather, oak, grape must. Complex all the way through and absolutely delicious; while it absolutely stands on its own, if you're going to compare it to Cantillon Vigneronne, I find this to be a bit sweeter and less tart. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, slightly slick with white vinous character on the finish.

Hazy saturated orange, thin foam and minimal spotty lacing.

Bretty horseblanket aroma, crisp acidic citrus and stonefruit.
Tart and citric, fruit forward, the pinot gris grapes are seamlessly integrated.
Dry oaky finish, supple juicy feel, medium bodied, light carb.

Overall this was pretty exceptional, delicate and nuanced with unique fruit character.
