Having this beer relatively fresh (about 7-8 mo. old). Amazing head retention and lacing on glass. Excellent horseblank aroma. Taste is like a dry champaigne/white wine like quality with hint of tartness/sourness and mild apricot/pear fruit. Finishes super clean. Amazing beer. Would love to have to opportunity at some point in my lifetime to revisit this one with a few years of age on it.

One of the most expensive beers of the world. I was very excited to try this famous legend. My bottle aged for only one year, it was too early to drink it but I couldn't wait more.
It pours hazy golden color with small sized long lasting off-white head. It smells moderately funky and fruity. Barnyard, wood, tartness and apricot are on the nose. Taste is moderately acidic sour not sharp. Sweetness of apricot balances sourness. Wood, lemon and wheat are on background. Slightly vinegary, acidic feeling on mouth. Very dry finish which is remarkable. Low bodied. Moderate carbonation surprised me because I expected more. Very respectable brew, great experience!

I’m a sour fanatic, and this beer lived up to the hype! Best lambic I’ve ever had!
