look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

330 mL Bottle. ABV 8%.
Appearance: copper, Just over half a finger of fuzzy off white head, medium carbonation, lots of suspended yeast, little retention, fizzy collar remains
Aroma: malty triple backbone, sweaty, soft funk, spice, slight Apple, slight honey,
Mouthfeel: medium body, medium carbonation, smooth, slightly tart, dry, very gentle booziness.
Flavour: sweet malt, heavy Apple juice, honey,
spice, soft funk, not a tremendous amount of complexity but well balanced.
Overall: I think the Lambic (30%) really complements the Tripel (70%) quite nicely.

look: 2.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a semi translucent light amber color with an off white soapy looking head. Retention is pretty meh as well as lacing.

S: Medium intensity. You get honey, green apple, lemon rind, hay and light barnyard funk.

T: Medium intensity. Quite a bit of honey and a lot of green apple without being super tart (but still a little bit). Lemon juice is there as well as the hay and light barnyard funk. Quite a bit of belgian spices with cinnamon and cloves. Maybe a bit too much residual sugars for what I would consider appropriate.

M: Quite a bit light but not as fluffy as expected. Kind of sticky too.'

O: Solid wild ale that isn't too expensive around here. It's a bit sweet for a Belgian sour but it's definitely solid still.
