Bottle at Cantillon. Very vinous, soft funk and wood but a lot of tannic grapes. Deep notes of plums and ripe red fruit, chocolate even. Lovely.
EB Quintessence Trip April 16-19. Very heavy on the grapes with plenty of black currant and black cherries but still the lama box manages to pierce through. Truly a wine and lambic hybrid and utterly delicious!
Bottle (2019 vintage) shared at Moeder’s Into the Wine Tasting. Dark garnet pour with a fleeting white head. Wow, this is really good. It’s powerful with a huge red wine component that is countered and balanced by the addition of the 3 year old lambic. Great body and mouthfeel.

Pretty clear deep dark purple beer, bit aery irregular purplish head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: very intense, fruity, floral, grapes, vinous touch, dusty, nice. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: nice and fruity start, turning rather bitter quickly, some tannins, wood notes, slightly sweet, bit soapy. Aftertaste: dry, funky, tannins, red wine, some grapes, bit metallic, soft acidity, good stuff, dry finish.
