3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Fresh Peaches with a mild medicinal note.
Appearance: Hazy light gold with a thick white head.
Flavor: Somewhat reminiscent of a witbier but with more fruitiness. Coriander is just detectible.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation with a dry, fruit-pit finish.
Overall: An interesting, if strange take on a Lambic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
When in Brussels, do as the "Brusseleirs" do: go for a "blanchke" (a white) in "La Mort Subite" (Sudden Death). The café itself may attract more tourists than locals these days, but it has kept its authenticity despite this.
Very accessible, a good introduction to lambics. Maybe not the best of this style, but that doesn’t mean thisn’t a good beer, far from it.
Opaque golden-straw, you’ll have to be fast to catch any sight of a fast dwindling hald inch of foam (I really can’t call this a head).
Lemony smell and taste, nice balance of sweet and sour, little of the bitters. Quite fruity even, but luckily there’s the yeasty tones to counter that sufficiently as to not make this an alcoholic lemonade.
Very nice quick thirst quencher, very drinkable.
