2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I was expecting a sweetened lambic here but was disappointed... this is in fact the first lambic I haven’t raved over. Simpler than I thought this style could get, the candi yeast covers everything in the aroma, flavour, and finish, and you get a slight sourness in the back but it’s way too small. Not even "out there", which must be hard to do for such a strange style. I guess it would be fine with desert, but it doesn’t feel exquisite, just lame, so have it with a chocolate bar, not French pastry.

25 cl bottle @ home, BBE 18.09.2014
Aroma is nice combination of earthy sourness and sugary sweetness. Flavour is tartish with grapefruit, sweet sugary maltiness and some fruits. Interesting and better than I expected.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark reddish brown coloured beer with a weak off white head. A winey, vinegary aroma, red wine and balsamic, plus a ketchup like fruitiness and a woody element in the background. Medium mouthfeel. A balanced sweet and sour taste, sweet red fruit, toffee apple, and tomato! This, then brings in the sourness, balsamic and red wine. It's like a fizzy sherry!

Pour is the color of apple pie filling with a small white head. Aroma is tart and funky but taste like brown sugar and apples. A very good beer that is smooth and full of fall flavor.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared with Deanso. Pours a murky brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of nasty typical chapeau sickly lambic, sugar, stagnant funk. Flavor is heavy sweet, a touch of acidity behind. Over light bodied with soft carbonation. Not good, but I’ve had worse chapeaus
