Bottle 25cl.
Clear medium to dark red brown color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, berry, vintage berry and malt, cheery, madera wine dry. Flavor is light heavy sweet, light to moderate acidic and light vinegar with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. Very nice ;O)) [20090621]

JorisPPattyn (7983) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2005
Red-brown / chestnut colour with a good, irregular yellow-brown head. Lactic nose, sour, wood, slight saccharine smell, aroma of old Burgundy. Extremely vinous character, dark fruit, red grapes flavours. Medium body, dry, very tanninelike, long lasting main taste. Excellent oud bruin. Mixture, original or labelbeer? Great find, Lachesis.

Bottle, 25 cl. Thx to VACAS, owner of the Bierloods. A hard to find beer, brown color with reddish shine, and a off-white creamy head. Aroma touch off woods, sweet and sourness. Medium body. Taste reminds me at Vichtenaar, have caracteristic from this brewery, it is not to sour or to sweet. Hints of wood. G O O D !

Bottled at LC-RBM. Aroma of cherry and very fruity. Chestnust red, beige head, good lace. Sweet & sour, gin, fruit, peppery, woody, port, light dry. We didn’t know which brewery but it did remind us of Duchesse and now I see why.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2005 Fine brown beer with reddish shine. Light coloured airy head. Aroma has touches of biquits with fresh jam sitting on top, it is slight lactic and has hints of old fortified wine. The beer has a well integrated soft woody touch in the nose and suggest a subtile sweet sour brew. The taste is very caracteristic and is not to sour or to sweet. There are hints of cookies, wood, old port some fruits and milkbread. In the aftertaste there is a slight tannine like crispyness. At the LCRBM (Kulminator Antwerp) Thanks to me for finding this.
