3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprised how much I liked this lambic, considering the sweetness it wasn’t too cloying. Amber color with a light, white head. Peach-like arouma. Peach also in the taste, sourness is strong and lingers.

Tap at Moeder Lambic. Amber with a creamy white head and lacings. Nose is sweet of malts, dust and caramel. Slight sour notes. Sweet almond and cellar notes in the background which is quite unpleasant especially the almond. Besides of that a good faro. Ends dry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught a la Mort Subite.
Amber/reddish with a bit of lace. Aroma: citrus, sourish. Flavor is sweet-and-sour, fruity, a bit cloying. Sweeter than usual, but nice enough balance. The finish is sweet, a bit syrupy, but not really too cloying. Much sweeter than a usual geuze or lambic, but refreshing and well balanced. A bit too syrupy, though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Comes to the table with a clear dark copper color and a small head. Aroma is surprisingly sour with citric lemon and tart berries. There is definitely a large lambic presence here. And there is only a light sweetness which is presented behind the lambic and the sweetness works well in that place. Taste is mildly sour and lightly acidic lambic with dark tart berry sweetness. Very easy drinking drinking and dries out at the end a bit. At this point this was the last faro I have drank it is definitely the best, better than Cantillon and its surprising from this brewery. This truly had the least amount of sweetener.
Tap @ La Mort Subite, Mort Subite short snifter/goblet on 5/18/08.
