Bottle. Half finger foam. Clear Cooper. Faint fruity aromas. Gentle taste of red fruits. Need a little more complexity.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Well-defined currants move into an acidic and acetic splash for a pleasant, fruity Fruit P-Lambic.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the clear light amber.
-This doesn’t have as much barnyard presence as the base Spontanale.
-Carbonation has smaller, pricklier bubbles than the Spontanale.
-The second half of each sip is particularly fruity.
-This is still a nice introduction to the funky flavors of lambics, if one doesn’t want to get to them too quickly. It’s a refreshing summer drink too, if you can tolerate the acidic finish.

Bottle.

Koelschtrinker (10480) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 20, 2011
Erfrischendsäuerlicher Antrunk, etwas trocken. Die Fruchtnote ist gelungen, könnte aber besser verhorkommen. Leicht muffig, zum Ende ist die Säure aufdringlich. OK! /10/9/8//9
