75cl bottle at the brewery in Brussels. Dark red, darker than the Kriek. Aroma of grapes, jam. Flavor was pretty good, rich, grapes, almost some sort of cream, not quite butter but a full taste. Much less sour than I expected. Best beer I tasted at the brewery that day. Very lucky to get the opportunity to try this, delicious.

Served at Cantillon brewery, enjoyed over an hour. 750mL bottle in a basket.

Pours a hazy maroon body with a small light purple head that reduces to leave a ring of retention and little lacing.

Aromas are mezmerizing - so insanely Jammy. Grape jam, sweet and inviting, but not cloyingly so. Tannic, tart, fruity, red wine,

Taste is tart, tannic, red wine, red grape jelly, very well balanced tartness, lightly funky, sour cran-apple. Low carbonation, almost flat.

One of the best lambics I've ever had! Extremely well balanced, delicate, and tasty with nice grape character
