Tasting at Mes and Sims flat. Cloud orange beer with a frothy white head. Dry sour beer. Earthy - woody, not too astringent. The earthy mildness makes this and easy drinking lambic. Thanks to Mes & Sim for sharing this one!

Corked bottle, from De Hereen Van Liedeckerke
Hazy light amber color; higher carbonation than the Roze; big frothy head. The aroma is more elegant than the Roze, and without the cork touch; there is some lemony sourness, a bit dusty, light cheese and apples; still pungent in the end. The body shows more carbonation, but it has a good structure, more balanced and less astringent than the Roze; good soft tannins, pleasant and not overwhelming cellar character, high acidic touch, a bit lemony; it ends with some astringency. The only thing I would like to change here is the carbonation: excessive.
Wonderful, more subtle and elegant than the Roze.
