Amber colour with no head. Very sweet though not cloyingly, slight sourness, cherries, amaretto liqueur, pear juice concentrate and a very slight funkiness. Great to enjoy in small amounts with a dessert or just on it’s own.

Solid lambic. I wasn’t a fan of the aroma as much as the flavor. The aftertaste is amazing. Very carbonated, sugary and sweet on the tongue.

Bu en pression en 25cl, une bière d’une couleur très ambrée, très sucre candy, peu de mousse. En bouche on a l’impression de sentir que de la pomme pas désagréable mais trop sucrée.

dmschefke (566) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2012
Pours a clear ruby brown with very thin quickly disappearing off-white head, no lacing. Aroma of wheat, yeast, apple cider, dark dried tart fruits, and caramel. Flavor matches well and is definitely dominated a bit more by caramel malt than I was expecting and quite sweet. Taste is very long lasting and almost sticky. Definitely a bit different.

kapusil (564) - HUNGARY - JAN 8, 2013
0.25l bottle. Dark orange/light brown body with floating yeast particles, very quickly disappearing off-white head. Sour apple aroma with a champage-like yeast character and a hint of caramel. Tastes like candi sugar, caramel and lemon. Very nice.

Renobob (564) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 1, 2014
Beaucoup mais alors beaucoup trop sucrée. Quelques touches de fleurs au nez mais le sucre ultra présent gâche tout pour moi. Cela dit, c'est une bière facile à appréhender pour les non amateurs.

Dark reddish brown pour. Tan head. Acidic fruity aroma. A little cheddar cheese and vinegar. Flavor is a nice sweet apple cider. Some tart acidity, lots of fruit. Cherry. Pretty sweet. I can't complain that it's too much, given that this is the style, but it would be better with less sugar. The sweetness really takes over after a while. Not a beer I'd go back to.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Pours brown with a light, white, fine head. Aroma is grassy, barny, very unique. This isn’t all that different from Lindemans’ Gueze. Mouthfeel is moderate. Flavor is caramel, apple, barn, and pleasantly sweet. Very good beer.

odinstyr (559) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Pours a clear orange-red with a tan head and particulates floating in it. Smells candy-ish, sweet and leathery. Taste is sweet and a little sour, it has a candy quality - quite a superb specimen.
