Bottle. Pours a light amber with an off-white head. Nose is quite sweet with some sourness, slight yeast and light malt. Taste is very sweet with some caramel, apple cider, and a growing though moderate sourness. Lingering sweet finish with some apple, wood, and slight sourness. Nice dessert beer, although the sweetness is enough that itís hard to drink a whole bottle of this. It would be great to share amongst 3 or 4 people with dessert.

Bottle. Pours a reddish copper color with a very slight head. The smell is pretty interesting; tart but sweet fruits as well. The taste comes as quite a surprise. Brett funk flavors up front that quickly transitions to a very sweet fruit flavor almost like maraschino cherries. Light mouthfeel. An interesting beer and style. Too sweet for me but I could see how this could be a good after dinner sipper or for people that like sweet cocktails. Would love to try the Cantillon version to see if it is as sweet.

12oz. corked and capped bottle served in a Tank 7 tulip. Bottle conditioned. Poured a dark copper with a finger of off white head. Fruity aroma with some dark sugar. On the sweet side. More fruit, cherries. Light bodied with plenty of carbonation. As it warmed, I got a hint of something like vomit in the aroma, which obviously was not pleasant. Beer is very drinkable none the less. Definitely on the sweet side. Would make a good dessert on its own.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a small amount of head. Light tart flavor with a slightly sweet finish.

teorn88 (3585) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2010
37,5 cl bottle. Pours a cloudy copper color with a medium off-white head. Fizzy foam. Aroma is lamibc-like: acid, vinegar, barnyard and little sweetness. Taste is similar but more complex, on the sweet side: sugar and wine aromas come out, some wood notes too. Palate is medium with high carbonation. Overall, very refreshing and interesting brew.

JanEric (1122) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle, 37,5 cl. Amberbrown, lots of co2, no head. First a malty hoppy aroma, later some fruit. Alzo somewhat sweety. Smooth taste, sweetish, also fruity, slithgly bitter. Somewhat dry finish. Fresh thirstquenching beer.

Pours a reddish color with a rotten fruit like smell to it. Has a really sweet cherry like taste it. Really unpleasant after taste that I canít really put my finger on. Damn Iíve been getting a lot of bad beers lately

This is my first lambic that I am rating on this site. It is also one of the rarest lambic styles I have been told. Had a pop up cap with a cork as well. Silly to be sealed twice I think. Label on bottle is fairly fancy. I like it. Pours an orangeish brown color with a medium sized off white head. Is pretty fizzy. Smells of sugary goodness mixed with some sort of fruit (pear? cherry?). Has a nice look to it. Taste is very sweet, almost like sugar. Little bit of carbonation in their with some plums in the taste. Wasnít sure what to expect with the lambic. A little sweeter than I expected but not a bad drink. Oh and purchased by my boy scotty bo botty. Holler.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Capped & corked bottle from Binnyís beverage Depot in Orland Park, IL: This poured a slightly hazed amber body with a modest head that rapidly dwindled to a film. The aroma has a cherry candy sweetness with a light lemony tartness and a soft touch of funk. The flavor was more balanced than the nose led me to expect, although the sweetness did dominate. The finish was surprizingly dry with a lemon drop tartness.

Finally got a hold of this elusive style, albeit a common brand. Earthy nose is sweet and enticing. Texture is tingly and full up front, dryish in the middle, sticky in the finish and cloying in the aftertaste. Unfermented Belgian candi sugar really comes through. Rich rock candy in the malts, with a distinct, honey-like and mead-like aspect that dominates from start to finish. Some flowers in the aromas, along with sweet petals and sugar-coated perfume-like essences. Has a curious nip of sourness that surfaces here and there, but it is washed away with sweetness. Extremely mild, almost non-existent hop bitterness. Interesting beer, especially for itís mead-like qualities, but too sweet for me. I wonít, however, rule out the style after just this one sample, especially due to the fact that itís Lindemans, which brews a lot of sweet beers.
