Pours unclear , small ring of white head. Scent is full, juicy apple. Far less skins than i'm used to in good ciders, probably due to the usage of only jonagold ? Bit funky due to the lambic, providing some balance. Taste is full, sharp, fairly dry, mild apple aroma (fruitgflesh, little to no skins ). Lambic funk. Compared to the hoenshof cider lambiek, you can tell this has much more lambic (an actual blend vs a liqueur de dosage in Hoenshof) which brings balance and interesting components. on the other hand, this cider needs the balance, as 100 % jonagold simply isn't that interesting or good for cider. I like the blend, but the usage of a better base would realy elevate this beverage's endresult.

Pours unclear, warm amberblonde. Medium white head. Scent is full, very funky, woody, buttery, intense, somewhat cheesy. Taste is full, tart, smokey, wood, very gentle on the sourness. Medium carbo. medium thin body ( rather dry) , smokey touch presents itself as peat, almost. Not sure if actual peat/smoke malts were used (in small amounts) or it's due to the 7 year old lambic and the interaction of brett and air for this long. 800 bottles made.

Pours black, small tanned head. Scent is full, roasty hazelnut. Intense, smooth.... Amazing. Taste is full, hazelnut, mild 'chloride' ( small off note ), though it fades away quickly. Roasty, nutty, chocolate (mild) , vanilla is hidden. Fairly thick, medium low carbo. Very mild bitterness.
