Un lambic appréciable même par les non-amateurs. Bon après ça reste une bière acide, sans bulle et sans alcool ou presque ;)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer number two was a unique style that is also one of the main reasons I traveled all the way to Belgium. It’s hard to pin down beers like this as there are not that many in the wild. Still, to try it side by side with the final product gave some insight into the transformation that takes place with time.
Aroma / Appearance - The flat bronze body had no true head or carbonation but was also a bit murky. The smell of a young scotch that has just taken on a sweet edge rises from the glass along with polished bronze doorknobs. Caramel undertones glue it together.
Flavor / Palate - Sherry and sweet caramel taste like drinking some sort of dessert wine. The heavy mouthfeel clings to the mouth’s corners. The finish might be short lived but adds a sugary bite. I wouldn’t want to drink this all the time yet it is an experience that everyone should have at least once.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Flat orange pour with a few small bubbles on top. Really musty and oak forward with a lot of grass. No perceivable tartness, a bit of apple, and some mild funk and malt sweetness. There is a rather pronounced bitterness on the palate. A light malt sweetness, some oak, apple, and very light earthy funk. No tartness to it at all. Really odd and not terribly enjoyable.
