Pours relatively clear blonde. Small head fades instantly. Smell is sharp, booze-burst, yet fading fast (the boozy side, at least). Mild raisins, honey, cantillon funk (mild) . Still relatively boozy for a lambic. Taste is full, intense tartness, very dry. Clear raisins, recognizable from the few Vin Santo's i've had. Mild honey (not sweet) . very recognizable in both Vin Santo, and Cantillon lambic. Impressive balance. Medium thin body, medium high to high carbo. Lovely!

Bottle at PastaMadre. Clear golden with small white head. Spicy grapes, cheesy, dank yeast, wheat, oak, white pepper, mineral.
Medium sweet and sour, soft bitter. Medium bodied with sparkly carbonation. Interesting spicy white grapes, fruity but spicy. Noice.

Swieze, chlalne, ze zlozonoscia bez szalenstw ale paleta fajna, oczywiscie winogrona, cos a la bialy pieprz? Dosc pelne w odbiorze jak na lambika, ale jeszcze mlodziutkie (z konca kwietnia rozlew). Mozna duzo wypic mysle

At the source courtesy of the man, thank you sir. Cloudy yellow color no head. Vinous fruity grape aroma. Taste has grapes, tannins, not much funk. Good potential here, would love to re-taste in a year or so

0,1l poured from a Decanter at the Cantillon Tasting at the Arrogant Sour Festival. The Tastig consisted of the following beers: Cantina Giardino (this one), Vin Santo, Blabaer 2018, Balsamic Lambic, Amfora 2013. Unfortunatly for technical reasons I lost my notes from the tasting so here is a sum up from memory. My clear favorite of the tasting. On this the grape / wine side is more present than the lambic. Lovely notes of berries, the smell had even a light smoke side to it. Notes of plums, nutty, marzipan, bit earthy. Overall this is a lovely beer. 9, 4, 9, 4, 18
