Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, bottled in January 2020. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A clear golden colour with a two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but eventually settled to a thin replenishing fluffy cap.
Aroma: Sweet, grapes, Gewürztraminer, honey, apple peel, lemon zest, funky, oak, with peppery notes.
Taste: Lightly sweet and sour, grapes, lemon, green apple, and a light funkiness.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, dry, light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: Second time trying, and this bottle seems even better than the first. Reminds me of sweet white wine, but not the dessert kind and it’s also got a light sour tang to balance out the sweetness. As far as lambics go, it doesn’t feel too complex, but the taste is my thing and it drinks really easy. This would be an interesting one to age.
