Served in a wine glass from a pitcher at the Cantillon brewery. They told me it was 100% 16 month old lambic.

Pours straw yellow, with little head. Slightly hazy. Smell is mild, lemons. Tart.

Taste is soft, slow, rich, sour but not overpowering. Nice bitterness. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel is velvet. Just lovely. Overall, very good.
