Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle with a best before date of 7th April 2025. Despite all my carefulness, the cork still felt like exploding out, and it was only by some luck that I didn’t spill the bottle. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy golden orange colour with a big three finger white head that had decent retention and eventually settled to a thin cap, while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart, funky, oak, green apple, brett, light citrus zest and notes of pepper.
Taste: Light to moderate sour, brett, funk, citrus zest, green apple, and a soft caramel touch.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Enjoyable and easy drinking with some nice Lambic characteristics.
