Bottle. Pours amber to brown somewhat clear color with lively white head that disappears in seconds. Aroma is sparkling wine (champagne), grapefruit, bit earthy. Taste is sugar and grapefruit. Start is very sweet, leading to sour ending. Really nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 355mL bottle. Clear, orangey-brown with minimal off-white head, very tiny amount of sediment. Aroma slightly sour, some cherry and mild funk, but also a sweet maltiness. Taste has some of the mild sour characteristics of a typical lambic, but also a fair amount of sweetness (could give this to some of my friends who may not be able to take a full sour yet). Finish quite dry, but very bland. Medium-light body, slight oily texture.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Csak a jó Sör, Budapest. Ködös, vörösesbarna színe van, fehér habja gyorsan eltűnik, kicsit olyan pezsgős a megjelenése. Illata almás, de inkább almaboros, igencsak cukros, és már egy cider jutna eszembe, de a maláta egyértelmű aromája szintén jelen van. Íze szintén almaboros (azért egy jobbféle), malátás, illetve karamellás. Egyszerre fanyar és cukrosan édes, ami nekem nem feküdt túlzottan, de azért nem rossz.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted 06/10/2007. Bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits, Wellington. Copper, tending amber. Slightly hazy. Collapsing off-white head. Mostly cherry, wood and sugar on the nose. Quite simple but very polished. In the mouth it’s sweet and sour - with a nice dry tannic finish. A nice balance between the sugar, cherry, and lambic sourness, with a woody tannic lambic character. Blood red oranges linger on the palate. Lovely. Not quite what I’d call "funky" but certainly very drinkable. A great apertif,or a digestif... or just enjoy it on its own.

Almost champagne-like. Really bold sweetness and tartness. If the social tensions of Thanksgiving dinner were a beer, it would be this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I poured this into an oversized wine glass and I got a big white billowy head sitting on top of a ruby colored body. The head fades away to a nice lace but you still get a ton of carbonation coming from the glass.
Big old funk nose on this brew that I couldn’t get past. Now the flavor was really sweet which threw me for a loop with the amount of funk in the nose. It was big on the candy sugar and fruit. It had a medium feel to it with more than ample carbonation to it.
I drank about half the bottle then it became a little to sweet for me. So I sparked a big ass cigar and dam if it didn’t work well with it

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a pinkish orange brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy white head that dissipated quickly down to a thin film and a small collar, but did produce some good streaky lacing.
The aroma was a funky sweet with a light touch of cereal malts and a sweet horse blanket yeast with noticeable notes of green apple, berries, caramel, candy sugar and a mild hint of wood.
The taste was extremely sweet and substantially malty with hints of berries, candy sugar and caramel at first and finished just as sweet and malty, but was a tad on the tart side with notes of green apple and a touch of wood at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration with the sweet-tart candy taste left to linger.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry syrupy texture and a prickly carbonation.
Overall a nice tart and extremely malty-sweet brew, with a berry-apple champagne taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
An off-white head (that stayed present for a while) and a caramel red body. The aroma is spicy, sweet, and yeasty. The flavor is sugar-sweet without being overwhelming, and the yeast, malt, and spices are present too, almost giving the flavor a dessert bread-like quality. I don’t normally care for lambics, but this is one I could drink on occasion. Very interesting.

Amber in the glass. Aroma smells of sweet malt, fruit, wood, and a trace of a lambic funkiness. Pretty sweet on the palate but does have a nice acidic twang to cut some of the sweetness on the finish. I could see this being a good option for people who like gueuze but want something sweeter and less sour.

Bottle. Brown-amber color. ’Wild’ aroma: sour, wet skin, hay, barnyard, a little fruit. Sweet sugar and sour lambic taste.
