sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2009
(Bottled, 2007 vintage, 10.5% ABV) Hazy golden with a very small head. Dryish, tart and fruity apricot and strawberry aroma. Flavor is tart, dryish, yeasty and cellary, pale-grainy-malty and very fruity with apricot and some green apple sourness. Medium-bodied, slightly fizzy-carbonated, hides the ABV completely. A really refreshing, light but strong ale with pleasantly tart and fruity, white-vinous character from the lambic. Reminds me of the very good Lind Gewürztraminer Trocken Spätlese white wine - only this is even more complex. Good stuff!

deflagro (106) - Lund, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2009
Yellow, cloudy liquid with a small head. Smell almost like a lambic; sour and musty with notes of apple peel. Taste has notes of yeast, orange peel and some bitterness like a tripel, but also a distinct sourness with musty notes of apples like a lambic. Aftertaste is quite weird with a yeasty bitterness combined with the sourness from the lambic. Interesting, but not completely successfull blend.

xpimptastikx (103) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Finally found a bottle of this on my Belgium trip at the Alvinne bottle shop. 2007 A - Pours a slight hazy golden color with 1/2" white head that recedes to leave a web, then hardly any carbonation at all. S - Funk, bready yeastiness, and sweetness from the blonde it was blended with. T - It gets pretty interesting here. Starts with sour and vinegar that evolves into a dry sweet taste that stays with you for a second. Definitely not like any other beer I’ve had before. It gets a lot better as it reaches room temperature as well. M/D - What an awesome blended beer. Incredably drinkable for a 10.5abv "sour", much more than a bottle of Vin De Cereale. The lambic blends perfectly with the blond creating something that I wish I bought more of!
