Intro: A 500ml bottle, 2017 release. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A cloudy golden orange colour with a two finger white head that had pretty good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Funky, barnyard, tart, peach, grape, oak and lemon juice.
Taste: Sour, tart, lemon, grape and oak with light funk.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to high prickly carbonation.
Overall: Nice and refreshing but strangely not much funk in the taste considering how much I got from the aroma. But nonetheless, still very good.

Intro: A 500ml bottle, 2017 release. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy straw blonde colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Passionfruit and lemon peel with a hint of wood and funk.
Taste: Sour, passionfruit, lemon juice and oak with only hints of funk.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice aroma and flavours especially from the passionfruit, but I’m not getting much funk at all considering its supposed to be a Fruit Lambic.
