Spontanbasil is a Lambic beer product of the collaboration between Mikkeller, who has ventured the world of Lambic before with its “Spontanale” and its derivatives, and Lindemans, one of the world's greatest expert on such a special beer style. By the way, the bottle design is deeply inspired by the Cuvée René of Lindemans' brewery.
When pouring this Spontanbasil, a very sparkling liquid of an orange and hazy color fills the glass, topped off by a white head.
The smell is extremely characterized by deep fresh basil aromas with some citrus fruit notes and more specifically, lemon.
The presence of basil in the flavor as well, can make you think of an Italian pesto sauce, mixed with sour flavors of lemonade.
A very surprising and flavorful mixture which is perfectly balanced!
