A incredibly interesting lambic, general fruity scent that leads into a tart but smooth caramel body, bitter after flavor but agreeable with a little bite.

Just to sort out some beers I have had, but didnít rate. Bottle at home, It was an interesting beer, strange sweet/sourness, it was drinkable but i had a hard time drinking the complete bottle.

nice beverage-- it shows how extensive the beer family can be, this scarcely seems like a beer at all-- there are few of the usual signposts indicating much in the way of malt or hops. one would guess this one is a relative only by marriage: brewing yeasts and some vague malt foundation wedded to dark fruits in sweet noble rot. it's a soft orange pour-- between tiger fur and apricot pastel yellow. there's a nice decoration of ice-white lace like sinuous veins in marble. rich aroma of cherrys, cedar, noga-hide upholstery, and some perfumes common to ladies bath soaps. i searched hard for the "barnyard" aromas, but found only the dried-flower smell of hay-- no horses or goats. extremely sippable, the 25cl bottle is an adequate serving size. is it sweet? duh, yeah, does michael jackson own a bottle opener? yeah, it's way sweet. cherries and apples with a very tart cranberry finish. lightly sour, acidic as a car battery, very soft creamy palette. the finish is all cranberry-lemon, which may accord with breakfast fare: pastries and waffles. contains no buzz that i could desern: this is suitable for children, pooh bears and sweat bees-- and perhaps the serious beer hunter searching for the outer boundaries of what we call beer.

elbernays (838) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle from mchughs. Pours light red with no head. Aroma is candy floss, sour apple, hints of vinegar. Flavour is sweet caramel sugar with a sour apple aftertaste. Toffee apple. Needs more sour, style is very sweet. Not mad on this style.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2008
Amber with a low head. Sugary and dry aroma and flavour like an Asti with a bit of nuts and wood. The perfect beer for too much summer heat.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Wilburís. Appearance: slight white head, amber copper color, clear, light lacing, head does not last. Aroma: grapes, oak, leather, prune, awesome yeastiness. Palate: light body, light carbonation, sticky fruit texture, sticky dry finish. Taste: very pleasant sweet fruit, into a malty, overripe fruit taste that balances the sweetness. very slight bitterness. Overall, very pleasant, maybe a bit too sweet, but pleasant.

HoppyBudgie (833) - SOLA, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2013
Light orange with big head. Aroma of sour apple, lemon and candied lemonzest. Taste of green apple, candied orange/lemon zest and brown sugar, My first faro, tasty

Bottle. Sour lambic aroma with some sweetness present. Flavour is an abomination - far too sweet with unpleasant earthy elements. I couldnít finish the bottle.

Matts_Property (830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a clear orange/mahogany with a fine white lacing. Aroma of soured fruits, funk, some apple, candied sugar. Flavour is lightly sour, some creamy cheese, apple, candied sugar, and some funk. A lot smoother texture than I was expecting - not as sour. Dry mouth feel, and quite a lot of sweetness, but not cloying, which moderates the sour. Nice.

TrefwoordPunk (830) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours light purple with a white head and a rich fruity smell. Flavor is sweet, a bit too sweet but the finish makes up for it. The finish is rich, with sweet, sour and spicey notes. Very good.
