3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 37,5 cl from Terra Vinea in Morteau (F). Hazy orange, creamy head off-white fleeting, fizz low. Nose of apple, cider same, wooded, lactic. Mouth at the same time round and tart, candy sugar coats acidity, notes of raw meat. It is refreshing, fruity with touches of gingerbread. Good gueuze of "poor".

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nice darkish-amber, and very clear. Moderate carbonation makes a light-tan head that dwindles to a small rim. Nose is sweet and fruity with a cork/funk note. Flavor is a little sweeter than Iíd like for a lambic, which isnít all surprising from Lindemanís, but itís not overpowering, so the lactic tartness still comes through. Peppery/fruity notes show up, as well. Itís sort of a step between the overly sweet and fruity Lindemanís fruit lambics and a real unsweetened lambic. Not bad, really. Would make a pleasant dessert beer.

From a 355ml bottle into a water glass. Little to no head and no lacing. Aroma is sweet and slightly peppery. Mouthfeel is light but sticky, very carbonated too. The carbonation is kind of sneaky, it doesnít really show, but when you tast it, itís very fizzy. Taste is very sweet. Some cherry and other dark fruit flavor. Candy sugar is very present. Pepper favor is also well hidden but is present. Overall, a pretty good beer for dessert. I wouldnít drink it on a regular basis, but for a dessert beer, once in a while, itís pretty good.

Cavie rolled this one right to me! The aroma on this puppy is nice big funky lambic, I dig it. The flavor is of course very sweet with apples, sour green apples, a nice maltiness, and maybe even some earthy hops hanging around in there under some lambic funkiness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The pour is a clear amber color with an intense levely of carbonation but surprisingly little in terms of head.
S: The nose is very musty with some odd notes of cork and bread. There is quite a bit of sugary sweetness as well, but I expected that.
T: Wow, I was really surprised by the flavor of this. The intense sweetness was the first thing I noticed as this beer is very sugary. Thereís also a hint of fruit and for some reason, a bile note on the back end.
M: The body was medium with a very high level of carbonation and despite being sweetened, still has a certain level of dryness.
D: This beer is really all over the place. I was not at all surprised by the intense sugary character, but the vomit flavor really seemed out of place.

Aroma is candi sugar and white peach. Taste is sweet but too much sugar for me. Fortunately a wave of yeast came cut this oversugar sensation. A medium bodied Faro plenty of carbonation . A pleasant finish. The taste stays over the tongue. Perfect after the beach

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an average autumn brown with a weird aroma of slightly sweet leaves. Flavor is uber-sweet candied sugar and syrupy leaves. Average mouthfeel. Too sweet; needs more sour.
