Almost clear golden color with head. Aroma has lambic funk, lots of damp cellar and wood barrel. Taste is sour but not very acidic, bitter and woody with light spirit complexity on the finish. Medium minus body with medium carbonation. Really nice and well balanced but it lacks some complexity.

750ml bottle, batch 4, Cantillon stemmed glass. Slightly cloudy golden yellow body, one finger white head, plenty of retention, bit of lacing as well. Smell is light leathery funk, bit of grain, light warming spirit, a mild-moderate acetic acidity, light vinous character, a touch of stone fruit. Flavour follows; complex leathery cognac warmth, mild acetic acidity, a bit of grainy sweetness, touch of bretty leather, touch of stone fruit. Mouthfeel is lighter medium bodied, good carbonation, mildly zesty lemon and cognac on the finish. While it's great, but doesn't have the warming cognac presence of the other batches of 50N4E that I've had.

Bottle from Jean at the brewery. New label. Batch 4 is aged in Armagnac Barrels instead of Cognac like the previous 3 batches. Consume 12/2017.

White head. Golden orange color.

A touch of sweetness on the nose. Similar, but different than cognac. Big barrel presence.

Taste has a caramel like candy sweetness, but I can't think of the name. Nice barrel flavor. Truly unique lambic. Funk with a light tartness. Light licorice flavor. Very unique and enjoyable. I can't wait to revisit this one.
