Prevalgono le note dolci, ma se bevuta mentre si mangia un dessert vengono fuori le note acide ed Ť una vera goduria

JMerritt (1887) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottled. Multi-hued rust/saddle brown/sangria in color with a tiny, bright white head. Aroma is a mix of sweet and sour, with notes of brown sugar, red wine vinegar, light dates and plums, white oak, mild leather, and light, bright lemon. Flavor is quite a bit sweeter than I expected, lightly metallic with notes of cherry blossom, oak, white wine, and orange peel. Very delicate wood notes kept me sipping and savoring for quite a while.

250 ml bottle from Seijo Ishi in Shinjuku station. Poured into stemmed half pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Nice sharp lambic aroma with some muscat and berry. Average to active carbonation with medium to light body. Taste is tart with some sweetness in the background. I like this better than Boonís faro. The lambic shines over the candy sugar. Dry and crisp finish that is refreshing and not overly sweet.

bunget (669) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
On tap at Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Cloudy amber with small white head, poor retention. Aroma of apple vinegar and spices, lemons, yeast, herbs. Taste of a clear lambic, no extremes, tons of sugar, yeast, old hops, apples. Interesting, but too sweet.

Zekada (425) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2015
Pours amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet and fruity and isnít very big. Taste has some sweet brown sugars, fruits, apples and some ginger. Palate is very think, but sticks to the taste buds. Overall too sweet for my taste.

alomtnez (165) - SPAIN - MAY 31, 2015
Small white head with good retention. Clear reddish dark golden colour. Aroma is sweet cider, apple and caramel. Taste is mostly fruity, both sweet and acid with very slight sour hints. High carbonation and medium body. Nice but quite artificial flavour, in my opinion.

rikstar (1305) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2015
0,15l fles Uitgeschonken amber van kleur. Geur is zoet met appelsap. Smaak is vreemd zoet zuur, als appelsap die te oud Is. Daarna komt er een lichte kots smaak. Nee niet aan mij besteed.

Senka (882) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 30, 2015
37,5 Sharp lambic aroma. Some oak barrel and lemon acid. Pours clear light ruby red with thin head. Sweet, sugary, acodic, yeasty and bitter at the same time. Totally new combo. Good desert beer. Sour middle and soft sour finish. Numbing. Beautiful lambic. Some apple vinegar in the last sips. BBE 1/7/2016
