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.

vadie (1107) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2015
Rouge foncer avec presque pas de col. L’arôme de pomme et sucré. En bouche c’est fruité avec plein de pomme. Un peu trop sucré.

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice golden pour mid white head with rolling bubbles along the glass. Small nothin like it taste loads of flavor , Apple pie, honey, sweetness with yeast notes. The Apple stays on the palet like drinking juice.

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.

kermis (8064) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2015
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
