25cl bottle courtesy of Secret Santa. Red, amber pour with almost zero head. Small ring of off white foam. Aroma was sour cherries and candied sugar. Palate was medium bodied with almost zero carbonation. Not heavy on the alcohol, but you want to sip it. Sweet, fruity flavor, almost like wine. Quite different than anything Iíve had before.

Had this from a bottle at the Lindemans Brewery, sweet aroma with the nose of a traditional gueuze, appearance is as expected, taste is remarkable, unforgettable and very easy to drink on the palate.

Travlr (11871) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Golden yellow colo with very small head that disappears quickly; no lacing to speak of. Aroma of apples, grapes and candy. Flavor is dominated by the cloying sweetness that never lets up - nothing to balance it. Medium body. This one is too sweet, lacks the lambic characteristic sourness to balance it.

d07c0m (89) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2010
Very bizarre style. Bottle was capped AND corked and required a corkscrew to open. Unlike any beer Iíve ever come across as this was almost like a soda pop. Orange, lemon, fruity sweetness of apple juice all apparent. Not very carbonated, not much head. 375ml bottle.

dnstone (2140) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 29, 2009
A wild, winey aroma. Orange-amber color with almost no head. Sweet and sour taste; grapes and grapefruit with malt and hop note underlying. Fairly complex taste.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Amberish pour. Aroma is sweet/tart with some apples and maybe pear notes, light vinegar on the background. Flavor is sweet and tart with an apply note. Not bad.

allfreej (552) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Bottled. Poured cloudy dark copper, tawny foamy head. Nose was sour cherry, cask wood. Flavor is very sugary with a sour Lambic undertone. Interesting, but I prefer gueze.

Pours clear dark amber. Off-white minimal head. Smell is sour and fruity. Taste is a tad sour with enough sweet to round it off. Hints of apple. I love this one. Nice beer for sunny days.
