brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Amber colored beer with an off-white head. Moderate tartness with a fairly substantial fruity sweetness. A bit of malt, some cherry, grass, and a mild oak aroma. The flavor is a touch sweet with some sugar, malt, and cherry notes. A moderate tartness, some lemon zest, and a bit of grass. Mild oak flavor in the background. An interesting lambic.

madsberg (10107) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2006
Draught @ Rare Vos in Schepdaal: Amber coloured. Quite clear. White dense huge head. Acidic and quite fruity and sweet in the nose. Definately sugar added to this beer. Reminds me a little of Faro, which isnt so special given the fact that this beer is a blend of lambic, gueuze, faro and a forth ingredient from Girardin (Jacob Löwenlunds theory is that its the Ulricher Pilsner). Is well balanced and sweet with an acidic and light sour note. Medium bodied. Ends on a quite fruity note.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2008
Draught @ De Rare Vos Schepdaal. Is this beer a lambic, partly, yes. It is more like a flemish brown mixed with lambic, sort of a Jack Op. And a very good one! Strong aroma of caramel, wood and a hint of cherry. Sweetish, sourish caramelly flavor. Thin, with citrus and wood in the finish. Lovely!

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Draught, at the pub of the same name. Ruby red, pink head. Taste is sweet, sour and bitter at different stages of the sampling. More prominent hop profile than most. Interesting and unique.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Draught glass
Consumed at De Rare Vos Cafe, Schepdaal, May 2006

Clear dark amber/copper colored body with a toast colored tan head. Toasty nose of chalky wood, spices, and light cinnamon. Up front it’s a bit like a flemish sour ale, then it turns to a toasty cinnamon and cedar wood flavor, then finishes with a light sourness. Interesting and different, though not exemplar.
