3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted 06/10/2007. Bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits, Wellington. Copper, tending amber. Slightly hazy. Collapsing off-white head. Mostly cherry, wood and sugar on the nose. Quite simple but very polished. In the mouth it’s sweet and sour - with a nice dry tannic finish. A nice balance between the sugar, cherry, and lambic sourness, with a woody tannic lambic character. Blood red oranges linger on the palate. Lovely. Not quite what I’d call "funky" but certainly very drinkable. A great apertif,or a digestif... or just enjoy it on its own.

Brussels-07. I’m not a huge lambic fan, but I can appreciate this beer. Pours reddish-brown with light head. Has a nice fruity nose, and taste is well balanced sweetness with hugh tartness and flavours of peaches, cherries and citrus notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours reddish copper with a thin, fizzy head. Aroma is semi sweet tart cherries, lemons, apples, and other berries. very light aroma. Full, well carbonated body. Flavor is lightly sour, berries, sweet malts, peaches, and some light citrus/orange flavors. I actually really enjoyed this. Light flavors, the sweet notes weren’t too overpowering like in some lambics. Refreshing, and I’d like to have it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Poechenellekelder, Brussels. Amber color. Sweet, tart and fruity aroma with notes of cloudberry. Sweet and a bit sugary flavor but still quite nicely balanced by acidity and fruitiness. Notes of dark sugar and peaches in the flavor. Dessert wine like beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaske. Duft af rørsukker og smag af rørsukker. Farven er brun med et sodavandsskum. Det der gør øllen rigtig god er at den har en god surhed i enden. Og når man nu godt kan lide sukker så er det en god øl.

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.
