3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at Mort Subite: Sweet and cough syrup-like. Like candy. Where’s the lambic in this lambic? Thinish body and refreshing for sure, but completely unchalleging. This was better than the Peche or Framboise though.

Destroying sweetness and fruity flavors carpet bombing any trace of lambic. Maybe an interesting trace of grape seed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1999: Like a fresh morning day in may as I walk... out wait. Flowers. Like chewing on flower petals covered in cherry paste. An interesting interpretation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1999 VERSION. A nice older bottle proved to be much tastier. Big cherry colored head with a sour and moldy nose. A bit more complex than Lindemans which is welcomed.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Clear red. Winegum aroma. Very sweet, big black currant sorbet flavour. Tasty, at least if judged as an alco-pop.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2003 Excellent aroma, promises many things.
Initial taste is a little thin, but the more you have the greater the flavour. It's a strawberry, vodka and tonic water taste (otherwise known as blueberries). Very Tart. Extremely refreshing.
Not a 'get pissed quick drink', rather a banana lounger on a Queenslander balcony. Clean aftertaste and excellent plaque and tartar remover.
Have some today.
Had some more again and it's still bloody marvelous.

Head is initially large, frothy, pink, mostly lasting. Body is
dark orange-purple, moderate density of tiny particles. Aroma is lightly
malty (light bread), with notes of cassis, blueberries, and licorice.
Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet,
moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture,
lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Nicely balanced for a fruit

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light pinkish color, well carbonated, moderate foam. Woody berry aroma, light sourness. Sweet blackcurrant flavor but restrained with a balanced tartness. A little sour and puckering in the finish. Not too sweet, shows the lambic qualities in addition to the fruit.
