Diep, vol aroma. Rood fruit, krieken, pruimen, rozijntjes, beetje eik. Warme, volle fruitige smaak met klein zuurtje. Heerlijk lange afdronk. Dit bier kan je heel lang bewaren en ontwikkelt zich verder. Bier met nog een grote smaakevolutie. Binnenkort maar paar flesjes wegleggen. Superlekker genietersbier !!

A very light sour smell, closer to cider than to an ale. Then you taste a little bit thick but smooth and easy going fruits, and a little carbonization, a little bit vanilla, more apples, after a while more and more berries. For me this is closer to a champagne than an ale, it is a very nice complex brew and if you can stand the sourness, the taste will be very rewarding! ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

ChtiBreizh (225) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 20, 2015
Brown with a very thin head, sparkling. Cherries, prunes, vinegar. Dry and sweet, lightly sour. Woody, caramel, cough syrup weird finish. Ok but lacks some sharp sourness to be refreshing.

poech73 (284) - Braine, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2015
Bière brune légrement acide fort maltée sirupeuse aux arômes boisés, épicés. De visu elle offre un beau col écru épais persistant à une belle robe rubis sombre. Son nez fort doux exale des senteurs caramélisées aigrelettes avec un houblon aromatique. La bouche fort ronde aux saveurs de pains d’épice, de bois et de fruits confis s’apesentit pas mal dans le gosier avec une acidité quasi nulle mais avec beaucoup de saveur grâce à cet alcool bien présent. J’aime bien l’arrière goût boisé aux saveurs de noyaux de cerises accompagné d’une amertume affirmée mais bienveillante sur une longueur moyenne.

Kauge (760) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle. BB 09/2024. Chestnut brown with a small light beige head retaining as a thin scattered layer. On the nose it’s sour fruits, cherries, vinegar, wood, berries. Sweetish taste at first, but the tart layer covers everything in a matter of moments. Almonds. Sour apples. I like this sweet and sour ping pong. Crisp thin carbonation. Very acidic. Medium body. Woody dry mouthfeel, but tolerable at that. Alcohol doesn’t show, which makes it surprisingly easy to drink despite the acidity and dryness. The finishing feeling in the roof and back of the mouth remind me of my favorite berries, whitecurrants. It’s lovely.

OBESO (1) - SPAIN - JUL 18, 2015 does not count
Although this is not my fauvorite beer style, i was really surprised for such a good beer. Red wine and vinegar are the predominant tastes. An excellent beer for people who are trying to introduce themselves in lambic related flavours
