Thanks to John for these!
2015:
Hazy brassy gold, initial burst of foam that settles quickly. Decent clarity.

Aromas of cheesy funk when the bottle is first opened, minerally and citrusy as it sits in the glass. Pretty much a dead ringer for a lambic.

Firmly tart and tannic, lemon, apricot skins, dry oaky aftertaste. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall very nice, easily one of the closest interpretations of Belgian lambic in the U.S.
2013:
Less carbonation, not much foam. Acidic and lemony aroma.
Taste is much more acidic and sour than the '15. Tannic and very dry aftertaste, lingering oak is present. A bit more mellow in feel but more acidic. Pretty nice stuff, I'd give the '15 the edge for it's complexity.

Served In: Snifter
