Chapeau Faro Lambic

12.7 oz green, dimpled-bottomed bottle. Cap is interesting, do you have one of these pghlee??
Out of the the capped and corked bottle (with no freshness date), it sits in the Brasserie l’Abbaye des Rocs chalice with a fairly ordinary presence with a brown body and some nice head. The head fades to give a collar and some film with minimal lace. Not really making itself known.
The nose offers some pretty strong fruit, with plums being the most obvious. Densely fruity with a touch of acidity.
The nose continues into the tastes quite faithfully. There is some big fruit upfront but fairly quickly we get a strongly acidic, slightly vinegary finish. It’s not really offensive, but it is noticeably ethanoic acid in its nature! It also has a certain musty tasty which is reminiscent of old beer. Of course, with no freashness date of any description I have no idea how old this is.
Creamy moutheffel completes the package.
Interesting and I quite enjoyed it, but I bet this is a massively different beer when;
a. fresh.
b. close to the source
c. in a draft version (if it exists)
Just another step on the journey – drink on!
