Cork gives a sustained pop, and the carpet of pastel pink foam sizzles with a lively crackle. Lace here and there. Deep, rich crimson tone on the edges of the glass, in the center it"s nearly opaque darkness. Tiny streams of carbonation. Head sustains itself well and never breaks.

Traditional Lambic funk through and through. Perfect aromas of ripe fruit, hay, and barn stables.

Cherry tartness, pits, stems, whole fruit fermenting into a spritzy tart nectar. Well carbonated and lively. Oak notes are mild but come through in the aftertaste, after the sour lambic has barreled through. Perfect balance. Intense ripe cherry flavors that come through in a big way.

This should be a staple in the fridge of every lambic-lover.

Brugse Zot blond from Brewery De Halve Maan is available in the Beer Store
