Nice beer. Pours a clear red brown with light white head and a lot of floaties. Aroma is sweet but a little musty. Taste is sweet and sour balanced. Syrupy sticky feel.

Fles30cl. Kleur bruin roode gloed. Witte schuimkraag. Weinig schuim. Geur zoet fruit. Smaak zoet fruitig appelachtig. Eindigend in wrang zuur.

Robe cuivrée, limpide. Premier goût très doux, puis arrive une légère aigreur. Saveur de pomme et poire en majorité, léger arrière goût de rhubarbe. La gazéification est plutôt importante. Une bonne bière lambic, rafraîchissante.

Zlotta (75) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2014
0,25 l bottle from P & M Getränke in Bonn. Clear, amber liquid with quickly diminishing white head. Sourish aroma of fermented apples, white sparkling wine, lemon and rhubarb. Taste is of fermented apples, white sparkling wine, hot wine punch, lemon, rhubarb and candy sugar. It begins rather sweet and ends with a tart, sour finish. Well balanced. Medium body, average carbonation, sparkling mouthfeel. Overall really nice and refreshing.

Flaska bishops Gustav - frisk fruktig arom. Kristallklar! Lätt att dricka fruktig smak nästan lite som ett vin.

12oz bottle to tulip. Moderate funk aroma. Amber brown. Free of sediment. This is quite similar to a sweet champagne but with a slightly funky finish.

Saeglopur (405) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 13, 2014
250 ml bottle from supermarket.
Dark amber to brown, moderate hazy body, with a tiny, frothy, white head.
Aroma of yeast, barnyard, sour fruits, earth, sugar.
Taste is very sweet, sugary, with sour fruits, earth, barnyard and a slight dryness from the background, merging into some salty effect.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes sweet, salty, fruity and a bit dry.

Good. The strong sweetness and the moderate, dry sourness combined lead to a salty impression, which is quite interesting. Otherwise not a beer I would often drink, the sugar is just too dominant for my liking and also disturbs the drinkability in my opinion.

Mejs (104) - Poznań, POLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Pours brown, with very short, white head. Highly carbonated, with medium body. Aroma of yeast, malts, some skin/horse notes, sweet. Taste is 50/50 sweet/sour. Fun to drink, not bad at all

Drunk from 25cl bottle bought from Delhaize, Belgium. Overly sweet for my taste but enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
