Wow, usually if a lambic is sweetened I’ll rate it as a fruit beer ~ whichever way will give it the highest points I go with. This beer horribly failed on both ways of rating. Pours orange with a sudsy beige head. The aroma is very veggie and comes across like a putrid mix of apricots and celery. I don’t like celery in anything really and in beer its revolting. Medium body that is a bit cloying with minor carbonation. The taste is better than the aroma with very sweet apricots, some spice and a bit of tartness. The finish has syrupy fruitiness like in canned fruit. As the beer warms that horrible veggie aspect starts coming back. Mediocre if looked at as a fruit beer, terrible if looked at as a lambic. Not very good and certainly not worth the high price tag.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a dense white head. Sweet fruity and slight acidic aroma. Sticky sweet with dominant abricot note. Citric and acidic, which makes me shiver. Ends with an abricot and marcipan like flavour. Very sweet.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours an orange color with almost no head. Aroma is dirty damp wet paper, some apricot, and damp moldy wood. Flavor is sweet apricot juice, and a slightly moldy rotten aftertaste.

Bottled(250ml). -Like drinking too sweet peach juice, maybe to little alcohol, unpleasant rotten apricot nose.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2008
Clear darker blond coloured beer with no carbonation and a full average white head. Fruity malty aroma. Medium palate, with some sprankling. Finish is sweet sticky, light sour fruity, dry near the end. Ok

PorterPounder (5344) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2008
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz capped and corked bottle. Murky dark orange pour with a brief thin white head. Aroma of ripened apricots, some toe jam funkiness. Flavor is of course dominated by apricots - more like the dried kind, not fresh ones. Hints of sourness, but not as sour as I like my lambics. Just a hint of vinegary sourness, but turns a but bland and metallic near the end with some barnyard funkiness thrown in there. . Mouthfeel is a bit tired and lifeless. Had better lambics

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2007
Golden colour. Curious aroma reminiscent of dates: sweet and oily. Taste is grassy and sweet with a little astringency, but not a lot else. Pretty odd.

jeremytoni (2948) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2007
From a bottle poured amber with a fair amount of head. Flavor of apricots, but a bit too sweet.

mmmbeer (1225) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 13, 2007
12 oz bottle poured into tumbler- poured golden tan, transparent, with a good frothy head that slowly faded away into a thin white ring around the glass. Aroma of yeast and apricot notes. Hits the mouth with a thin body, tart start and middle, apricot noticeable but weak, sour finish. Not really an artificial taste to this one, seems more natural than their other brews.
