2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle at home. Pours hazy golden amberish yellow with virtually no head. Faint aroma of sweet sour yoghurt, white berries, no lambic character whatsoever. Light body, faint sourness, nothing really outspoken. Taste is subtle oak, some tannins as well (palate). Ending quite sour.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown amber pour. Aroma is glue, soft plastic, mild oak, mild smoke. Taste is oak, mild port (currants), nice mild level of sour. Overall, a weird beer - confusing and not overly appetizing.

500ml bottle (Zmogsala2015, Vilnius)
Harsh acidic aroma, however, there’s some nice apricot behind that. Palate is way too acidic. However, you’re left with the lovely apricot again in the later finish. Totally schizo beer. This is not the Haand that I fell in love with 10 years ago. They were leaders, pushing good beer forward. This is shitty fashion following, and not even doing that very well.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
25th April 2015
Lightly hazy amber beer, a few short lived pale cream colour bubbles. Palate is light, dry and crisp. Sour start, some balsamic vinegar and a Flemish Red character. Mild lemon acid. Trace of smoke on the back end. Light crisp finish. More vinegar and acid on the linger. A bit on the sharp side for my tastes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, brownish amber color, with not much head foam, but some persistence to the bubbly ring, and light spots of lacing. The nose was yeasty funk, but also a bit medicinal. Light to medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was tart, with esters as dark berries & cherry, and some subtle, tannic astringency. Questionable start, but the flavor brought me back.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light lambic aroma. Apple juice like appearance. Strong oak aged influence. Sweet lambic like. Way different from acid Belgian lambic. Still wondering about this lambic yeast as claimed on the label. Well balanced taste on the sweet end of the tongue. Good body.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Arôme léger de lambic. En bouche on goûte bien le fut chêne. L’acidité est beaucoup plus douce qu’une geuze. bière épaisse. Bonne bière mais qui reste un ton en dessous des geuzes.
