AROMA: not very big, hints of fruit and spice; APPEARANCE: pours clear brown with decent head and effervescent; TASTE: sour and sweet and strong bitterness; PALATE: smooth, medium body, slightly spiked tongue, longish bitter-sweet finish; OVERALL: it is a pleasant enough beer, not that distinctive.

My first lambic. 25cl bottle. Pours brown-amber with a white fast diminishing head. Bready, sweet sour aroma. Flavour is sweet, yeasty, acidic wine, medium sour until the end.

This beer remindes me a russian champagne. Sour, fruit taste wit a light, but good bitter nute. White and thin foam disappearing very fast. Semi-drak colour. Overall - good to drink for sometime.

Given how high I rated this, I probably shouldn’t think it could be easily confused with a cider. That being said, it’s an enjoyable beer. The burnt copper color was nice. The flavor was a nicely tart apple. The only negative thing that came to mind was it felt like it had a little to much carbonation.

The aroma was cork and oak with a strong saccharine characteristic. The aroma was lightly tart with an acidic nature and some estery fruit character. The beer poured into the chalice clear amber with a low white well lasting head. The flavor was sweet, very, very sweet. Along with the sweetness was a light tartness and a fruity character. The sweetness was forced and unlike a cloying malt sweetness, this was that of saccharine. The finish was sweet, of course, and the body was medium with a fairly low carbonation. I had this in Belgium fresh and found it undrinkable. This bottle was much more pleasurable, but still too sweet for doing anything other than putting on a child’s pacifier. 37.5 cl corked and capped bottle, purchased at a Delhaize (Food Lion) in Brussels.

Tap at Aces and Ales. Pours clear amber with a white head. Scent of sour cherry, clove, honeydew melon. Flavor is sour cherry, grape peel, tropical fruit. Very nice.

Thanks to rustychiles for the share on this one. Popped the cap with no apparent carbonation. Poured vigorously to generate some minimal bubbling; pours a turbid brown/red with a thin white film, no real head. Aroma has some complex sourness in the background, but it is overshadowed by the back-sweetening. Same goes for the taste. You can tell there was an interesting beer back behind there, but it is extremely over-sweetened on top of that. Pretty much what I expected (except actually a little carbonated) - lackluster, but interesting style to try.

Tasted at beer judging school during violent thunderstorm. Aroma of daisies. Taste bias: it’s sour night. This seemed sweet and luxurious. Thick, smooth, if I knew what horehound candy tasted like I might think this tasted like it.
