omhper (19671) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2007
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy red brown, small pink head. citric yeasty nose. Lemon and citric acid are accentuated. There is not much barnyard, and just as in Cantillon Blåbær Lambik the blueberry flavour is hard to pinpoint, resulting in more of a general fruitiness. Fresh and quite tasty, but not reaching the complexity of the real lambics.

fiulijn (14993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Red / dark amber color. Interesting aroma, mixing sourness, berries, light glue and citrus fruits aroma; light cellar smell too. Medium-light mouthfeel, some lemon juice flavor, sour but not aggressive, a touch of berries and malt, a bit astringent at the end. Not bad, but something is artificial.
