ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2008
Cloudy orange colour with a small white head. Malty, light sweet aroma balanced with yeasty and murky notes and hints of fruit. Malty, fruity and light tart flavor with some sweet notes.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2008
Bottled. Hazy dark golden with a small white foam. Rich vinous and acidic aroma of wood, grapefruit, juniper, grassy hops and dried apricots. Full warming flavour of white grapes, wood, white pepper and lemon. Long acidic and warming finish of wood, green grapes and wet grass.

omhper (19237) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2008 Bottled. Clear pale amber, brief head. Concentrated citric horse blanket aroma. Sweet and sour, juicy and malty with soft, dense mouthfeel. Arousing, complex and confusing with the sweetness of a strong Berlgian ale and the tart lovely complex flavours of a real lambic. Wow!

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2008
Caramel, almond, marzipan sweetness contrast the sour twang of the lambic with some alcohol and overripe fruits. Clear, deep copper coloured body is topped by a shy white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Caramel sweetness and overripe fruits with balsamic vinegar in the flavour. Very dry body with sharp, pointy carbonation. There’s plenty to find interesting here but overall it doesn’t come together enough for me. Bottle (Bièropholie, Jul-07) sampled with Beershine and Oakes.

Beershine (5213) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Nice looks: orange color. Aromas of overcooked tropical fruits. Very fruity everywhere. Sour too. More overripe fruit in the taste but there is a malty backbone that carries the odd flavors well. Caramel flavors that form me complements lambic flavors here. Unique

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2007
Light orangey-amber. Aroma is alcohol upfront, some light caramel, quite fruity & perfumey. Crazy disparate palate is tart, hoppy, yeasty, slightly alcoholic and a nice flowery note. Neat beer, has a whacky vinegar note. Some sweet pale malts and an eccentric blend of hops & perfume.

henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
deep amber body with lots of beautiful bubbles beautiful long lasting white head, leaving patches of lacing; Beautiful acidy malty with lots grapefruit, green apple and hay notes on the side; Quite full a little fat textured body, malty bitter and citrus fruity acidy; Long finish with a grapefruit peel harsh touch and lots of juice aromas. The best of the Tripel-Lambic mixes I have had, but is this really a good idea?

TimE (3108) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 30, 2007
Like rolling around in the hay eating crisp apple pie. Fresh flowers. Distinctively light bodied and drinkable for the weight. Sourness is muted. Certainly not hardcore and was a party favorite even amongst non-beer drinkers. This lead the beer to being stolen. Oh well these things happen.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2010 Bottled. A clear amber beer with a huge, but collapsing beige head. The aroma is lovely acidic, combined with notes of brettanomyces and horseblanket. While the flavor is acidic with notes of malt, grapefruit, brettanomyces, yeast, horseblanket and wood. Nice mix.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2007
Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of hay, fruits and sourness. The flavor has some gueuze quality, hay, acidic, fruits, wild yeast, but it feels less powerfull and all encompassing. The body is light and creamy and the carbonation is moderate. It’s a good beer but if I want to drink a lambic I will drink a lambic, not a tripel-lambic blend.
