Pours a dark amber with a thin head that fades away very fast. Fruity, tart aroma. Thin bodied and very carbonated. Sweetest beer Iíve ever tasted. Way too sweet for me. This is the first time I will use the term "cloying" to describe a beer. There IS something alluring about this beer though. Overall I wasnít completely dissatisfied, but the sweetness just overwhelmed everything about this beer to me and thatís just about all I remember of the experience.

bunget (620) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
On tap at Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Cloudy amber with small white head, poor retention. Aroma of apple vinegar and spices, lemons, yeast, herbs. Taste of a clear lambic, no extremes, tons of sugar, yeast, old hops, apples. Interesting, but too sweet.

Zekada (411) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2015
Pours amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet and fruity and isnít very big. Taste has some sweet brown sugars, fruits, apples and some ginger. Palate is very think, but sticks to the taste buds. Overall too sweet for my taste.

Small white head with good retention. Clear reddish dark golden colour. Aroma is sweet cider, apple and caramel. Taste is mostly fruity, both sweet and acid with very slight sour hints. High carbonation and medium body. Nice but quite artificial flavour, in my opinion.

rikstar (1243) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2015
0,15l fles Uitgeschonken amber van kleur. Geur is zoet met appelsap. Smaak is vreemd zoet zuur, als appelsap die te oud Is. Daarna komt er een lichte kots smaak. Nee niet aan mij besteed.

Senka (862) - 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

Cenzura (246) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Aroma: sweet fruits, belgian yeast, light wild notes. Taste: fruits , light wild notes, really sweet but it works great with fruity sourness; very refreshing and drinkable. Fast disappearing head, poor lacing and medium carbonation. Price 25PLN (0,75 bottle)

Gangstergafje (173) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2015
The beer has a nice brown color with a red tint. The color is a bit pale though. There is hardly any foam. The smell (and taste) have been described by my sister as the smell of feces in a zoo. A bitter penetrant aroma. Nasty. The taste is bad too. A unpleasant bitter sweet and sour taste composition. Disappointing, I had high expectations.

Helder bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is zoetzuur en fruitig met lichte caramel invloed. Redelijk goed bier.

BeerBunker (863) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a white head. Aroma is of malt, funk, fruit, and spice. Taste is sugary sweet, with a distinctive sour tartness as well. All the flavors seem to drop off abruptly in the finish. Very sweet. Mouthfeel is light and sticky. Body is medium and heavily carbonated. Its good, its just not my thing.
