LoFi (1700) - Göteborg, - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle, thanks to fredrik_ and Ludvig! Hazy golden with a white head leaving lacing. Pretty nice fruitiness with sweet tropical fruits and peach candy. Taste: the tropical fruitiness from the aroma feels completely artificial here. Very sweet with lots of candy, also spices, coriander, lemon + peel. The wit influence is clear here, but not the lambic. Medium bodied. This was pretty OK after all, but I can see how many people would be offended by it.

oh6gdx (23691) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Bottled@Tuulensuu, Tampere (old backlog). Hazy yellow colour with a mediumsized white head, which disappears quite quickly. Aroma is mild acidic wood, some sweetness, citrus and mild yeastiness. Flavour is citrus, some yeast, mild acidic/tart wooden notes as well as some herbs. Kind of sweetish sour, which is pleasant.

kermis (8085) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle shared with Deanso. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma is floral, fruity. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter. Massive floral palate with a lacto milkshake, light strawberry quality coming out. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. I didn’t expect much from this beer but it’s really unique and actually pretty decent.

Alengrin (3686) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
Stronger version of Mort Subite Blanche, sold in 2012 on 37,5 cl bottles with cork. Rocky, sticky, stable, yellowish white head, ochre blonde colour with greenish hue, hazy. Fresh fruit sweetness in the nose, cider, orange peel, lemon juice, strawberry, mango, hay, sherry, wheat, coriander, soap, lemonade - a combination of witbier and sweetened ’capsulekensgeuze’. Same story in the mouth, fresh fruitiness, artificial sugary sweetness, strawberry, sweetened cider, orange, coriander, very light ’lambicness’ in the end but nowhere coming even close to the complexity of a real lambic beer, with some hop bitter in the tail. I understand the historical link between the spontaneously fermented lambic and the top-fermented witbier and I have nothing against trying to combine their refreshing abilities in a summer beer, but why does it have to be so artificial and sugary? Anyway, this was not all uninteresting and I can enjoy this product more than the ordinary version.

thewolf (11652) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle, bought @Beer Planet, Brussels. Pours clear dark golden with a small, staying, lovely creamy white head. Aroma has peach candy, coriander, cinnamon and apple. Medium carbonation, dry and dusty mouthfeel. Flavour has weird sweet wheat, lemongrass, candied apples, dry, chewing gum. Weird.

bu11zeye (12367) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2014

skortila (4931) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2014
Bottled. Full 37,5cl sample. The aroma has massive peach/aprikots, some pear. Hazy, golden coloured beer with a white head. The taste is sweet, has some hints of citric sourness but overall massive peachy fruit sweetness. If they only considered some balance, this could have been a nice summer beer. Now it’s not even refreshing.
