Hazy dark golden, small firm pale head. Mildly sour aroma, with old apples, little funk, wood and sugar. Flavor starts with lambic sourness, wood and dried fruitiness. Finishes candi sugary sweet. Quite pleasant actually, most of its lambic characters are still there. Sweet, but not overly so.

I didn’t expect the sweetness, noting that more than the sourness behind it. Color was nice, a good red/brown, and the palate was like a bizarre lemonade. A good intro lambic.

Ambrée un rien trouble, pétillance aussi fine que son col. Dominance aigre-douce, goût de cidre de pommes légèrement caramélisées, notes de citron, raisins et cerises, mini-amertume en arrière-bouche, un rien trop sucrée.

Flaske. Noe uklar ravfarget,moderat karbonert med hvit tynn skumrand. Smaker stikkelsbær,druestein,sitrus,kandissukker,gjær. En meget god faro, men føler kanskje den har en litt kunstig syrlig smak siden den er tilsatt ascorbinsyre ?

Bottle, poured into a flute. Pours a light clear reddish in color with a pure white head. The aroma is light and fruity, light notes of spice. The flavor is clean, crisp, slightly yeasty with lots of malty sweetness. The finish is almost clean, lightly cloying.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours orange-amber with a small, short lived, off-white head and Champaign like carbonation. Aroma is of yeast, malt, brown sugar and barnyard. Full, tangy body. Taste is sweet malt, brown sugar and sour grapes. This brew could be a good substitute for Champaign.

Senka (1042) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 30, 2015
37,5 Sharp lambic aroma. Some oak barrel and lemon acid. Pours clear light ruby red with thin head. Sweet, sugary, acodic, yeasty and bitter at the same time. Totally new combo. Good desert beer. Sour middle and soft sour finish. Numbing. Beautiful lambic. Some apple vinegar in the last sips. BBE 1/7/2016

Silvan7 (1038) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 10, 2013
bottle @ home. Gustosa, acisa e dolce contemporaneamente con schiuma cremosa e corpo soffice. Un pelo astringente sul finale ma ben bilanciato dalla dolcezza generale.

I really liked it, been seeking this style for awhile also. Yeasty, notes of cherry and strawberry... Sweet and sugary, also like a hef, and a bit sour as well though it should not make anybody pucker.
