jmgreenuk (5833) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 5, 2015
Tap at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Poured a hazy medium amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is rich sweet citrus rind, light spice. The flavour is moderate to strong sweet, light sour with a smooth sugary sour yeast palate and some lingering sourness in the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lots of sweetness up front and the sourness is all there at the back of your throat. Very refreshing indeed.

Cerveza turbia de color naranja claro, cabeza espumosa pequeña. Aroma a malta, caramelo y azúcar moreno. Sabor dulce y amargo del cítrico, un final seco a madera, realmente buena.

from cask at moeder lambic. poured a murky dark golden colour with a white head. lemons, green apple, kind of some, sweetness, caramel, sugar, wood, not my kind of style, why would you add sugar to a geuze....

Leighton (14330) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas - Brussels. Pours cloudy orange-gold with a lasting, frothy white head. Light grassy nose, some rindy citrus, background funk. Medium to big sweet flavor, mild sour bite, a bit of that cloying faro greatness, some salt, light grass. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with nips of leather, grass, sugar, cereal grains. Faro.

GlasgowTAD (658) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Smell is barnyard funk. Taste is moderate sourness, apples and tangerine notes in there. A touch of citrus is evident here. quite a nice brew but after a Kriek it is not quite the same.

On tap at Moeder Fontainas. Pours a dark blond with creamy white head. Aroma is barnyard funk and candied apples. Taste is light rustic sourness, brett and candi sugar. A little harsh. I prefered Girardin’s faro.
