Reviewing the 2014 edition. A very pleasant beer. Subtle cheesy funk on top of a floral blueberry aroma. Taste follows, tart blueberry meat and a touch of structure from the skins. The truest taste of a warm summer blueberry I've had, but lacking depth. I sense that you need something of a neutral background for this delicate flavor to avoid being swallowed. As a canvass for showcasing that ephemeral flavor, excellent. But lacking the complexity and layers of many other lambic. An incredible summer beer though if only it were relatively easy to acquire.
