Bottle. Copper pour with nice medium head that turns quickly into some lacing around the edge. Sour candy, apple, brown sugar. Pretty nice balance of sweetness, bubbles and body but slightly watery finish.

tillmac62 (259) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a slight garnet hue. Excellent head, lacing and retention. The nose is a light white wine like sweetness with grape and berry notes. Light medium body with a touch of creamy texture. Normal carbonation with some effervescence in the middle and finish. The World Class flavor profile hits the perfect balance of sweet and sour, excellent intensity and reasonable complexity. It begins with a blend of tart sweet fruit. As the tartness fades, brown candi sugar becomes evident. The middle produces a light sourness that is sour fruit in nature rather than vinegar. The finish is a slow fade of sweet/sour tartness. This one is an excellent choice for lambic introduction.

varanid99 (560) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2014
Reddish gold pour with a thin off white head. Lots of berries on the nose, taste is red berries, a little sourness, a fair bit of sweetness. Not bad at all.

Dr_Fellini (550) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear amber ruby color with a light tan head. Aroma is mostly sweet berries, very mild tartness. Flavor has a big sweetness, touch of sour berries, but not much. Light to medium in body with a long lingering sweetness. Tasty. Quite sweet.

Sarlacc83 (948) - Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2014
On tap at Belmont Station. A: Semi-clear brownish red color. Lazy white head. Some lacing. N: Cherry, vinegar, sugar, and honey. Hint of raspberry. Acetic acid and a note of toffee. T:Very, very sweet. Lightly tart. M: Light body, sticky a bit, alcohol is muted, carbonation is moderate. O: big sweet beer, as one would expect. I kind of wonder how it’s different than their regular Lambics, however, particularly the Kriek.

mecafilo (102) - Perugia, ITALY - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours with a dark orangr colour, medium sized rocky long lasting white head. Aroma has hints of leather, barnyard and basement aromas, quite strong. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, light to medium sour, absolutely stunning; great! Medium to full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, great mouthfeel. Fantastic brew!

barbillon (5) - Pesaro, ITALY - DEC 13, 2014 does not count
birra da accompagnare con dolci o aperitivi...leggera e perfetta per le ragazze che non amano il sapore della "vera" birra! birra con note vinose dolci! Perfetta per determinanti situazioni.

Je ne connais pas trop le style faro...Là, c’est infâme, dégueu, écoeurant, de la bière limonade fruitée immonde. Bu quelques gorgées tant bien que mal, jeté le reste, au 03/02/2014.

Douce bière sucrée, généralement for apprécié des palais sucrés ou de ceux qui "n’aiment pas la bière". Un goût fruité subtil, une bière au goût peu alcoolisé. Une robe plus sombre que ce que l’on pourrait attendre, mais un goût unique.

Mep3222 (578) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Darker than I expected. Amber color, expected lighter. Aroma of lactic sour and slight sugary sweetness. Taste is lactic sour with a sugary sweetness and almost some oaky woody flavors. Almost tastes like wet wood though, think that is the sugar with the lambic. Odd style. I like the geuze or fruit lambic better. Low carbonation. Sour is maybe 3 of 10 sour. And too sweet, maybe not even as sweet as some fruit lambics, but sugary sweet is weird. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maltman53 (386) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours russet red with a nice thin white head. Sweet sassafras on the nose, and a sweet tart rootbeer flavor on the palate. Overall, a nice appertif, but too sweet for me.
