3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2012 4.2% 25cl bottle bought in Belgium.
Violent pour to get some head... which disappears in a hurry. Dark red, wood colour with a beautiful glow.
The aroma is salty, bitter-sour wood with hints of lemon. Quite dry. Black pepper and even some fenugreek. Fat overripe cherries and caramel.
Bitter-sweet with the sweetness dominating. The alcohol gives some sourness. The sweetness dies in the palate revealing an orangy, bitter-salty shipyard woodiness.
A delicious beer for hot, thirsty days.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 cL bottle. Pours amber to light brown with no lasting head, a very small crispy head was there when poured. Clear lambic aroma with a distinct cane sugar element layed on top. Very sweet flavour with a slight sour twist towards the end. Nice style of beer a good supplement to the acidic/sour lambics. Note to self: I need to have some of these in stock for guests that don’t get the beauty in the dry and sour lambics :)

Bottle The Times Cafe/Bar Ypres 25-07-07. Has a soft sweet nose that whilst lambic is much gentler. Amber in colour with a small white head. The taste is really very good and a fine gentle introduction into this style of beer for those who wish to dive into Lambics. I liked this and whilst it is a bit too sweet it is still immensely enjoyable, and the sourness still offers enough of a diversion to keep one interested until the end.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a nice clear golden amber colour with a small but well lasting creamy beige head. Good sticky and creamy lacing. The aroma has sour vinegar with some sweetness and good tostiness. The flavour has a toasty sweetness along with a pleasant refreshing sourness, good fruitiness and a nice sherry touch in the sour and sweet finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blackfriers. Aroma is sweet vinigar, a sweet and sourness comes across, hints of wood and buckets of dark tart fruit, however way to sweet. Taste is a similar fruity beast, hints of port, woodness in the finisg and age, infact this tastes like the kulminator, like the smell of the kulminator when your having a old loteling brune or something, problem is its too dam sweet. This is an excellent beer its got more hints of a flemish sour ale than a lambic, but if it was half the sweetness this would infact be rated over a 4 for me.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Chestnut brown, thin light tan head. Nose is meaty malt, lemon, brown sugar, roast ham. Something odd is going on here. Flavor is that same hammy malt, bitter lemon pith, caramel. Bittersweet finish. This is a trainwreck.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beverina ma forse troppo dolce per i miei gusti, non ricorda i lambic se non in una lieve sfumatora dell’aroma.
appena appena sufficente.
