Bottled 2020. Easter 3x3, day 3 dish 1. Gravlax, red beet egg and dill. Very nice wild saison where the focus is on bright citric acidity. Good refreshing pairing with the fatty fish and sweet beets. Wouldn’t mind more funk though.

Bouteille 75cl de et partagée avec Vincent, merci.
BB 11/2029, bottled 11/2019.
Dorée oscillant vers orange, col épais blanc-cassé.
Arôme au bouquet très plaisant voire sur le rustique belge avec un léger apport citronné et fleuri, le rétro grains confère une petite note de céréales. Le tout penche vers un nez proche de cave rappelant un lambic.
Palais est sec, belle effervescence, rustique, cave et grenier, cobweb, petite pointe de barrique, pointe de funk rappelant un lambic.

Good, bit fluffy off-white head over lively bubbled copperish golden beer. Wild yeasts a mile out, pure lambic/horseblanket/farmyard nose. Lemon, lactic acid, even leather and strongly so! Lemony, lactic acid and a finish with something as oregan and pepper. Leather, horseradish, farmyard, earthy and in the very end a tad bitterish, warming up. Light acidburn, lipsmacking acidity, very well-carbonated. Remarkable! Bière de garde??? my ***, this is honest to God lambic!

Bottle. Very dark brown color with a purple haze. Slight gusher. Roast and blackberries in the aroma, sweet, roasty flavor with blackberries and moderate, but persistant sourness. Tannines. Surprisingly well balanced.

75cl bottle @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie, Dec 20. Pours a misty pale gold, good white head. Delicate acidity, bristling thornibess with some underlying wild lees and some defined wild apple notes. Great sipper but I can't help feel it's shining moment is yet to come.

75cl bottle @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie, Oct 20. Brought my me, bought at Olivers Cider Barn. Hazed dark brown, beige topping. Aroma of coffee, woody roast. Taste brings excellent complexity with razor sharp definition. Plenty of coffee, woody roast, oak, leather wallet, ash offset by a curious red berry sweetness and a warming red wine close. Wonderfully complex vatted porter, perfect condition after a couple of years in the cupboard, nice natural carbonation. Great example of this long-forgotten style.

Almost like a Boon with the sheer funkability. Super complex. Dry lambic finish. This is a fantastic example of a mixed-culture farmhouse style done properly. Extensive barrel treatment makes the Brett really shine. Amazing beer.
