3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A Mes rate: 75cl bottle from the wonderful Heeren van Liedekercke.
Beautiful golden brown colour. Totally clean and with a wisp of lacy film head. Unusual seedy and pithy lambic aroma with an almost framboise fruityness and really mellow gueuze underneath. Flavour is just starting to show signs of age. Slight artificial sweetness to it. Strong notes of lemon. Possibly just a little oxidised with some papery stuff appearing. Great sweet and sour finish. Love the fruity notes. So very fruity. In a blind tasting you would swear this is a fruit lambic. Ends up very yeasty, due to the bottle conditioning not working? Totally flat but strangely spritzy. Feels lovely in the mouth. Jolly good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared a bottle with diabel at Heeren van Liedekercke. Poured clear copper with a short dusting of fizzy white head. Aroma was of sweet pears and peaches with apple cider and candied floral notes.. some wheat as well.. sweeter than expected. Flavor gave a tart first impression with vinegar and lemon zest representin’... sweet fruity middle never releases the tartness.. long vinegary finish. Thought the balance was quite nice on the palate with a solid level of sourness. Glad to have tried this.

Bottle at Heeren van Liedekercke, Denderleeuw, Belgium
Clear, amber body. Off-white, fizzy head. Sweet-sour aroma of apples, peach, pears, sirupe. Flavour with a lot of peach. Moderately sweet initial flavour. Heavily sour, moderately sweet finish. All the sourness is popping up in the end. Nice, quite aggressive, but not very well balanced.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark golden body, big white head; Lots of framboisen (?) and warm vinegar, sugar and a little vanilla; Soft vinegar like thin body, sweet and a little acidy; Long dusty sweet vinegar like thin finish, caramel aromas. Strange and not really good.
