a blend of three different years of spontaneous wild beer, mature, woody, nuanced like crazy, oddly hoppy it seems, and drinks a little bit like a gueuze might, but its entirely unique to itself, really stoked to have had this so generously shared with me this past weekend, it was a highlight in a really killer session of bottle popping! really pale straw colored with a lavish airy white head on top with exceptional retention. smells like real mature brett, but without the aged hops and classic turbid mash profile of a traditional lambic, it doesnt have that mouthwatering iodine and oak tannin thing either, less acidity, the oak seems newer, more vanilla softness coming from it, and i defintiely get a nice pop of citrus and fresh herbs from the hops, it seems dry hopped and almost fresh at the end, an interesting twist on top of a very well aged and blended brew. the malt seems real light, white wheat and pils might be all, not as dense or structured as i have gotten used to in belgian lambic types, this might be that in spontaneity and vintage blending only. minerals and a little snap if bacterial acidity, super clean and not disruptive at all, and there is great balance here, its not just about the fermentation profile, although thats certainly the part that stands out to me as the most unique and interesting aspect of the beer. amazing depth of flavor and drinkability, i wish it wasnt rare or special so i could have this all the time, its really awesome stuff, and for how many people out there are trying to do this sort of thing now, it just stands out as better than everything else to me. i loved it!
