3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours a hazy, light yellow colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of strong, clean peach with lemon notes. Flavour of fruits, especially peach, some malts, citrus, cherris and mild spices. Medium bodied with a surprisingly thick mouthfeel. Very easy to drink and goes down more than nicely. Definitely a summery brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at A La Mort Subite in Brussels (3,65 euro). A bit cloudy, golden yellow with a thin white head. Fruity notes (cherry) and bubblegum in the nose. Little to no carbonation. Sweet but not really like gum or candy. Surprisingly finished a bit dry. A bit like Bazooka bubblegum on the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Presented as Morte Subite Witte Lambic
Sampled July 2010 at De Heeren van Liedekercke; paired with the dessert course as part of the tasting menu
This has a huge peach nectar like character to it; for some reason it reminds me of an overly sweetened ice tea that has been doused with fake peach flavor. The beer is a hazed, pale gold color and is topped by a fizzy, white head.
The flavor is sweet and peach like, though this is watered down a bit. This is only faintly beer-like to me and there is a hint of tartness to it towards the finish. The finish has a touch of dried grassy graininess to it. This is quite light bodied, though the extra sugar adds some texture to the body.
This is definitely a weird beer, I am quite surprised how peach like this beer seems to me; I suppose this could be because of the other beers I have had today, but it seems so pronounced I don’t know how someone could miss it. Small amounts of this work with dessert, but I certainly wouldn’t want to drink much of this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the La Becasse Cafe, Belgium. I had to search long and hard for this, as it was not among the Timmerman lambics served there - they called it "witte lambic" and that was pretty much what got me through the aliased beer and onto this one. Body is straw yellow with a creamy white top. Aroma is wheat and citrus tones, with hints of tarty, vinegar-ish notes somewhere; then again this might just be my mind playing tricks on my because of the name; this isn’t really a lambic. Too bad, I thought I was in for a real original creation here! :-S Anyway, taste is fair enough, very mild with hints of grapes and cereals. Comfortable, but a bit too mild. Smooth blend, but pretty boring.

Bottle at De Heeren van Liedekercke at the beerfest. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is sweet, fruity watermelon and berries. A nice grainy and yeasty flavor; some earthy, hints of sourness trying to get through, light fruit. Unique.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Mort Subite café in Brussels, sold as a "lambic white". Lots of hops and coriander on the nose. Looks great, a beautiful-out-of-the-tap drink with just enough head. Taste is a mix of wheat flavourings, not much in the way of a "lambic" taste. Pretty good though, I was happy with it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
on tap - 01/08/2010 @ De Heeren van Liedekercke
Pours a cloudy dark golden yellow beer with fine adhesive white head. Smell is that of wheatbeer, a little musty, some fruitiness. Taste is honey at first followed by a specific fruitiness of little red berries and goose berries. Mouthfeeling is a little flat and watery. Aftertaste is a little bitter with some sourness to it.
