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.

0.75 l bottle shared with a friend. Pours orangeish color with no head.It was like a mid-sweet champagne both in aroma and taste with a fruity-sour finish that lasted for quite a long. It was my first beer of this kind, hence my points are a hundred percent subjective.

Généreuse, légčre, sucrée, cette bičre est originale : elle ne tombe pas dans l’excčs de sucre et trouve l’équilibre.

Nice lambic yeast with a fruity sweetness to it. Interesting combo of classic lambic with an odd sugary sweetness in the background. Immediate tartness balanced by and iced tea kind of sweetness. I like the lambic tartness but the sweet part is off putting. Definitely prefer the cuvee rene over this.

Clear amber-reddish colour, moderate frothy head that quickly vanishes away. The nose is funky with light fruity acidity. Light body. Average carbo. Soursweet taste. Fruity. Acidic. Funky. A light touch of caramel. Nice balance. Light fruit stone biterness ending it. Very decent.

Fules (664) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 4, 2016
Semmi hab, vöröses - narancssárgás szín. Illata aszalt gyümölcs és fűszerek keveréke. Intenzív ízvilágú, savanykás, édeskés-kandiscukros, grapefruitos ízvilág, tökéletes összhangban. Közepesen testes sör. Isteni, rendkívül finom, igazi frissítő nedű.

Barwa bursztynowa, klarowne. Piana drobnopecherzykowa, pozostawiaj?ca ?adny lacing. S?odki aromat, przypominaj?cy zapach wina. W smaku g?ównie owoce. Du?a s?odko?? piwa jest kontrowana przez delikatn? kwasowo??.Oczywi?cie nie ma goryczki. Ca?kiem pijalne, chocia? troch? zbyt s?odkie,ciekawa propozycja na lato, zw?aszcza dla pa?.

Small bottle. Ruby brown. Not much head. Lambic aroma but tastes like a sugar bomb. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
