This is the most traditional lambic released from De Troch (available in the US), and it's pretty impressive that V&D has sourced their lambic for this project. Glad to see that they are still capable of producing a quality traditional product, despite the lowest common denominator Chapeau line.

Three year old unblended lambic. One bottle on the shelf bore the embossed Lindemans monogram on the bottle oddly enough, recycling at it's finest. Opened with a tiny pop, but no carbonation, as is expected... unblended and without priming sugar.

Hazy saturated orange color, string of juice bubbles around the edges. Still glassy surface. Color glows when backlit.

Farmy rustic aroma of damp wood and hay, forest floor, sawn wood and citrus. Soft and mellow, not sharp or acetic.

Grapefruit juiciness, crabapple, dry oak, a soft acidity that puckers but isn't overbearing. Still and medium bodied like natural fruit juice.Overall pretty impressive, we can only hope De Troch might bottle an Oude Gueuze one day.

Price: $22.99 Served In: Tulip
