Fatehunter (1690) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Into a flute glass. Clear, peach color body. Finger of head lasted a few seconds. It smells like barnyard vinegar cherry. Interesting if nothing else. A slight vinegar taste and sweet candy. It’s like beer candy. Higher carbonation and light body. It’s a sweet, light, high carbonated beer. The sparkling wine of beer. Worth trying at least once.

11.08.2015, 0,375l bottle @ hotel room in Balestrand:
Nice slightly fizzy-creamy shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry fruity, old rope, sugar, old cellar, grass, soda powder, hints of peach. Taste is slightly sour-ish sweet, soda powder, sugar, grass, old cellar, sour fruits, old rope. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and acidic mouthfeel. Nice enough, refreshing.

ciocanelu (182) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 27, 2015
Amber color with almost no head. Aroma is a combination of caramel, tart fruits and a hint of balsamic vinegar. Taste starts a bit sweet with some caramel and dark sugar and gets fruity and tart in the finish. It resembles a sweet flanders style ale more than a lambic. Overall it’s nice, easy drinking beer with a good amount of complex flavors.

SkillsFactory (196) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2015
Dorata molto carica, abbastanza limpida, discreta persistenza della schiuma, di colore bianco. Aroma di mela verde e susina acerba, polvere mista a legno umido, acidula, lievemente lattica. Man mano che si scalda si fanno sempre più presenti sentori appartenenti ai Gueuze. Al palato stesse note aspre ed acide, cosa astringente che ricorda nuovamente polvere e legno umido. L'aggiunta di zucchero rende molto più "facile" la bevuta. Corpo medio-leggero, poco carbonata, piacevole.

BrunoSanchez (189) - Fermo, ITALY - AUG 19, 2015
Faro colore aranciato con scarsa schiuma bianca. Al naso note di mela verde e legno umido che ricordano il sidro. In bocca leggera media con acidità bilanciata dalla dolcezza. Il sapore leggermente fruttato si fonde con un insieme di altri aromi che fanno pensare ad un spumante dolce poco frizzante. Non sono amante dello lambic zuccherato ma devo dire che questo prodotto mi piace ed è beverino come bevanda d’aperitivo o fine pasto.

ansalon (2034) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2015
Pours hazy amber with almost no head. Aromas of ripe apple, citrus, funk, farmhouse and hay. Taste is ripe apple, green grapes, farmhouse, funk, citrus and minerals. Mouthfeel is tart and dry with medium carbonation and body.

Paladares (102) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 18, 2015
Botella. Marrón semiturbio. No mucha espuma. Aroma asidrado con toques de naranja. Sabor claramente dulce, pero tiene muchos matices. No resulta tan asidrada en boca como se intuía por el aroma, aunque mantiene el toque a manzana verde. Ese toque ácido y dulce hace recordar también a los arándanos. Muy distinta a lo esperado en una cerveza, pero me ha gustado, especialmente después de una comida.

Ça c’est bon. Ça pétille, c’est fruité. Ça coule tout seul. Peu de mousse, une couleur foncée et une légèreté toute douce de cerise.

I knew the style; so when I opened l’amplolla was a surprise since I expected Lambic, traditional, classic and powerful. For me it is excessively sweet taste makeup of beer, lambic character.
