3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
$3 single at Binny’s, April 11. Nice smell coming out of the bottle, a fruity wine with plum in the background. Color is a full pilsener range, just a little rosy in the thicker parts, and I’ve got a good-sized white head that collapses into a bowl. Taste is sweet, as other taters notice, but I don’t think of that as a flaw. Maybe if I had let it sit another year or so it might ferment out a little more. But I do find it enjoyable for a fruit flavored beer. I do get some cork, even though I’ve kept it vertical at all times. I’d have another.

0,33l bottle @ Viisi Penniä. Pours hazy orange with a medium head. Aroma is sweet and slightly bitter plums. Flavor is very sweet and also bitter plums and some malts. Quite decent.

Had the plum version. Smelled nice but taste didn't hold up at all. Too sweet to finish a glass. Dumped it.

Not bad for a sweet lambic! Mirabellle are so sweet plums that you can expect the worst!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Yellow, hazy. Sweet marzipan, peachy fruityness, bit of soury tones. Light bodied, sweet. Sweet malts, sweet peach, but an acidicy to wipe the palate. Dry fruits in flavour, marmelade. A bit too sweet flavoured, even with the tartness. Sort of a soda pop- beer. Fruity, sweet. On the good side, doesn’t feel watery or fake at all.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Donkergeel troebel bier met schuim. Geur is duidelijk fruit. Smaakt zoetzuur, fruitig naar pruimen. Eigenlijk best wel lekker. Etiket is inmiddel gewijzigd.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet, flavored fruit beer with 4% juice from mirabelles, a member of the plum family, not well-known anymore in Belgium except to old people in the countryside. Off-white, loose, unstable foam, dirty peach blonde colour with pinkish hue, cloudy. Strongly sweet aroma of mirabelles, something between plum and peach, lemonade-like sugar, weak lambic character with some hay, some wood and some sulphur (yeast autolysis?). Sugary taste, bit lemonade-like, plum juice, faint lambic earthiness in the finish, which is otherwise - regrettably - dominated by a cloying, unpleasant sweetness.

Een lekker verfrissend biertje. Een aanrader op warme dagen en beter dan die Lemon.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (250 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Slightly hazy bright golden with a small ring of white foam and little lacing. Aroma is lemony with sugary notes, banana (or is it the reminescence of the horrendous Chapeau Banana we had a couple of Chapeau ago) and light acidic notes. Taste is also sugary but not as much as some other from the series. There’s also lemony notes and some herbal presence. Light body. Moderate carbonation (one of the most carbonated from the series). Similar to Chapeau Lemon.
