375ml bottle. Pours a clear dark amber, with a large white head, which lasts fairly well, and leaves reasonable lacing. The aroma is a mix of sour, musty, woody and faint leathery notes. It opens with a nice, strong sourness, with perhaps some redcurrant flavour playing through it. The influence of the candy sugar can be felt moving into the mid-palate, which offers some sweetness along with some woody notes. The sour flavour and slight redcurrant notes reappear towards the finish, which is a deft balance between sour and sweet. This is the first non-fruit lambic I have been able to lay my hands on, and it is not disappointing - it certainly lives up to my expectations.

Flaska från Brugge. Bärnstensfärgad med vit skumkrona. Doft av lambic och pomerans. Söt kropp. Söt smak av röda bär och lite rödvinsvinäger.

Flaska snabbköp, brygge. Orangeaktig kulör. Lätt söt doft av stall, citron och vinäger. Mycket söt smak. Funk, citron och jordkällare. Syrlig eftersmak

This Lambic was a nice balance between sour and bitter. This was our favorite overall for the flavor. Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bière brune avec fine mousse blanche. Elle sent le liège sûrement dû au bouchon. Au goût elle est acide et sucrée. Très bonne bière.

Yeasty, barnyard and sour scents. Pours a cloudy bright brown with a thin off-white head quickly dissipated. Huge round tastes of sour apple with sweet tart lingering finish. Oily mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really nice arresting big flavors. I really like it.

bouteille 75 cl - couleur ambrée assez sombre, odeur boisée, de sucre, goût sucré sur le sucre candi, une légère acidité, fruité et boisé, bonne mais peut vite devenir écoeurante

Served in a tulip from a 375ml bottle. Pours amber colour with a thick off-white head. Aroma is bread, apple, yeast, caramel and mango. Taste is apples, yeast, sharp sour-sweet with some bitterness. Medium body with lively carbonation. Very nice Belgian Sour!!!

Restrained aroma in a reddish copper pour. Tart taste to start is soon joined by a sweet body to balance and makes for a refreshingly different beer.

Pours clear dark amber with thin, short-lived, white head. Acetic and sweet nose, reminding some red and black berries. Taste is very sweet and medium sour. Light body, soft carbonation. I can’t drink more than 25cl.
