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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2007 Bottle (1996 vintage) from Systembolaget. Pours a lovely hazy orange amber color with almost no head. Very complex fruity aroma, with peaches, cherry, apples, grapefruit, and with notes of wood. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Refreshingly sour and bitter flavour, perhaps a bit harsh even. My first unblended lambic, and very good.
