21 August 2021. At Gents Bierfestival. Cheers to the Ghent beer crew! 2018, s. 18/19, No° 74. Hazy red, no head. Aroma of ripe raspberry, strawberry, coulis, redcurrant, lemon, leather, wood, vinegar. Taste has very sour raspberry, berries & lemon, funky & acidic, bit cheesy. Tart, sour, mouth-puckering finish, lots of red fruit, tannins, vinegar, sour red wine. Medium body, oily texture, flat carbonation. Very rich fruitiness. Massive.
Bottled 12-09-2019. Lovely peachy orange colour, fairly light carbonation. Smells tart, raspberries, fruity. Taste is pretty sour, but not that sharp. Loads of sweet raspberry, and a good bit of funk. Oak as well. Lovely refreshing, very flavourful.
Za kwasne kapke, za octowe (znaczy ciut ciut tego octu), za malo dzikie, poza malonami ciut teuskawek jakby? ma jakies cialo, jakas slodycz. Niskow ysycone. Nie no, generalnie pycha, acz jednak wole inne lambiczki owocowe, no
Pours unclear amberpink. No head. Smell is mildly acetic acid, full fruityness. taste is sharp, intense sour, mild acetic acid but it builds up, and is simply to much to be pleasant. Very dry, full on fruityness. low, but existing carbonation. Too sharp and acidic, to acetic as well.
2018 bottle, blend 74. Clear red with a wisp of head that's soon at the rim. Aroma of raspberries - some sweet, mostly hairy - almonds, vanilla, some old lemon, a rather clean outbuilding. Slightly slippery, moderate to low carbonation. Much less dominated by berries in the taste - the focus goes seamlessly from mostly fruit to mostly lambic. Finish of old lemons and some spices. Moderately sour with considerable depth as well as a little bright acidity. Deep rather than complex and elegantly quaffable.
Another 3F blend with Lindemans wort, I couldn't resist... Beautiful rapsberry notes up front, followed by decent amounts of lambic funk, the characteristic 3F mineral funk, barnyard funk, some green apple, citrus. A very nice blend
