Thanks to JK for sharing. Pours a clearish bubbly dirty brown. Nice apricot sour nose with hints of some other sweetness. Very nice sour brown like flavor profile. Nice brown sugar sweetness with a nice sour bite.

Bottle to glass, dark red amber body with a thin white head. Nose is dominated by yeast and funk. Taste is slightly tart up front, rushes into a sweet body with some barn bitterness, and a musty finish. Too sweet.

Pours an amber color with a small head. Sweet taste, this was surprisingly enjoyable after what I’ve heard about the lambics. I’d drink this again.

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.

Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma is....odd i honestly can’t think of how to describe it, i think its mostly the candi sugar , smells sweet. Taste is very sweet, but not cloying, it starts tart at first but then thr sweet almost cola like flavor comes in
Good brew, but hard to describe.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2010 Bottle.
A - Clear, and light tawny amber with some orange and red hues. Very thin light beige head with little retention and no lacing left over.
S - Funky, tart and sour make up most of the smell. Also has a bit of a sweet smell in the background. Reminds me a bit of an Oud Bruin only sweeter, the combination of the sour/tart and the funk.
T - Starts out with sour apple and lemon as well as tart cherry and raspberry taste. Then, quickly, the sweetness comes into play along with those taste. It goes from being a sour/tart beer to something more like a cider or a strong fruit juice. The sweetness also brings a bit more of a strawberry taste out. There is a slight funky background, but the yeast flavors are well covered.
M - Medium to light body with low carbonation. Slight puckering with a mouthwatering finish. Also a bit sticky/coating in the mouth.
D - Quite drinkable. Provides some tart and sour flavors, but they are very strong due to the sweetness. That sweetness and the coating mouthfeel might prevent drinkability, depending on your mood.
Notes: Pretty good beer. A little too sweet, especially with the coating/sticky feel, for me. However if I were in the mood for something sour and tart but didn’t want it to be too sour and tart, this would really fit the bill. Nice mouthwatering and refreshing cycle goes with this. Not a bad beer, and definitely worth trying, and has a niche it fills. Also may be a good way to start people off on sours, since the sugar makes the sour taste less powerful.

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.
