On cask at Moeder Lambic, what a joy!

Appearance is dull hazy gold with a big bubbled head, leaning still.

Smell is spritzy sour citus, sweet cereals and a little baby diaper

Taste has a real fruityness comes through the funk, resulting in a robust yet extremely balanced taste, enhanced by the soft mouthfeel of the cask. A little salinity as well, almost gose like, and very clean (save the wild funk). An indisputable world classic for a reason, amazing.

From a pitcher at the end of the tour at the brewery.

Pours a semi clea yellow, with no foam to speak of.

Smell is funky and lemony with some acidity.

Taste is mildly sour and funky. Slight hint of bitterness. Very crisp and clean.

Mouthfeel is almost flat and thin.

Really great to try the base for the Cantillon beers, and it's of course delicious.

Poured from pitcher at the brewery in August 2017. Pours a nice yellow with a small and quickly dissolving head. Nose is funky, earthy, a bit sour, and a bit of horse saddle. Taste is nice - sharp and sour, with some funk. Mouthfeel was dry and medium bodied.

From a pitcher at the brewery, 18 months old. Very clear yellow. Extremely still. No head whatsoever. Fruity, sour, wooden nose. A bit abrasive sourness as first, but then very wine like with the wood and white wine grape flavors. Slightly syrupy. Semi-dry. Very good sipper, and an absolute pleasure to try.

Server at the brewery from a pitcher, 18 months old from the cask. Orange-amber color, clear, and obviously still. Slightly funky aroma, musty. Flavor reminded me quite a bit of bruoscella, but less sour. Slight cider like flavor. Delicious.
