Snappy tartness is strong in the nose with hints of sour cherries, a bit musty and earthy from the yeast also in the aroma. Full smack of tartness hits the palate hard, carbonation is unbelievably refreshing with a well textured crispness. Cheery flavours come through right after the wave of tartness starts to settle. Slight musty barn yard flavour peeks in for a brief moment with a powdery earthy yeast flavour. Alcohol is a touch warming in the back with subtle esters. An underlying grain flavour tells the taste buds that this is indeed a beer. Puckering tartness makes way for the dry finish. Some like their fruit lambics sweet, this lambic is brewed with sugar but it seems virtually all of the sugars were fermented out leaving it tart and dry. This is the way I like my lambics.
