UPDATED: OCT 24, 2015 0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Brown colour. Taste is mainly sweetish brown ale combined with some sour lambic. Note that you should cool this too much since you’ll loose then the taste of lambic.

Tasting glass in a beer tasting in Bruges, Belgium. My new favourite beer style. This has not too much winegar acidity, but also not too sweet. Everything is in balance. Be warned, though, the taste does not resemble other beers.
