77ships (4251) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2012
Draft @ Borefts 2012. Dark amber orange with a lambic head. Smell is sweet citrus lambic stuff with a lemony tang. Taste is rather comparable to a simple, mellow tad sweeter lambic, light wood, lemons, stale water, brett, light touch of hops. Flat - like a simple easy lambic - enjoyable stuff.

Tap @ CBC. Amber orange color with a tiny white head. The nose is light lemony yeast, sweet peaches and sunflower seeds. The taste is light, tart, funky. Some lemon peel, honey, rainwater and flower roots. The body is light, the beer feels a bit flat and lazy on the tongue. OK.
