3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375mL corked & caged bottle BB 20/09/14
Pours a slightly hazy orange body, with a big fluffy white head - no as over-zealously excitable as you’re average lambic mind. Roused up a bit of chunky yeasty(I hope!?) bits on the 2nd pour - can’t hurt.
Certainly has lambic elements to the nose; natural yoghurt, cheese, dusty hay, citrus rind, with subtle earthy spice, freshly crushed coriander seed & dried orange peel.
Carbonation is somewhat restrained, comparatively. Light bodied, nice refreshing citric acidity, off-dry in style, which gives the texture some weight.
Some white sugary sweetness upfront tends to give flavours a different edge, as opposed to a drier style. Tends to lean towards more creamy cheese and sweetened yoghurt character, orange & lemon juice, light cereal wheat, subtle earthy spice. Remains spicy on the finish, low bitterness, acidity kicks in to create a dry finish.
Quite enjoyable. Certainly a change from the bracing acidity of a full-blown Lambic, but obviously lacks the finesse and complexity - like the idea though, blend of unique Belgian styles.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Schouskjelleren, december 26th 2013. Clear ligh golden body with a tiny white head. Funky aroma with lemon, spice and hay, taste is slightly sour, mildened by a sweet artificial fruit taste, with notes of straw and grass. Refreshing finish, although overall I believe I’d be in favour of a less sweet version.

[Bottle] Pours a fizzy yellow color with a distinct haze to it. Lemon, acidic tartness and subtle wheat malt sweetness in the nose. Taste is of more lemon, grassy notes, green apple and white wine. Lively carbonation. Nice and light.

Pours light, almost clear with only a bit foam and slight carbonation. Aroma is subtle, a bit sweet and fruity. Tastes like lemon lemonade or lemon cake. Slightly sour - but very drinkable and extremely thirst quenching. Is there really any alcohol at all?

Bottle at home from Dicey Rileys
Hazy burnished gold with slightly tart, banana esters and subtle corriander on nose. Fairly sweet initially, medium body and carbonation, tart yet sweet finish with touch of orange zestiness. Think spiced berlinner weisse with added sugar.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
My first Lambic beer ever. I have been curious what a Lambic would taste like due to the unique brewing proces. It didn’t disappoint. A Hazy golden color with a small white head. Unbelievable fruity aroma, wich makes you almost afraid to take a sip. The taste also very fruity, but not as overwhelming as the aroma would suggest. It also has a definite sourness to it that compensates the fruitiness and makes for a very interesting taste. Definitely some apricots, apple, citrus and a grainy taste to it. A beer to enjoy slowly and you think you taste all kinds of tastes, it keeps you curious. Very interesting beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wit na brettach, już jest ciekawie. W aromacie mnóstwo cytryny, trawy cytrynowej, ale i lekkie nuty stajenne, lekka kolendra i imbir, wszystko ładnie skomponowane, ale cytrynowy kwasek góruje nad resztą zdecydowanie. Podobnie w smaku, jest kwaśno w przyjemny, cytrusowy sposób, gdzieś w tle lekko mdła pszeniczna nuta poparta kolendrą. Dość pijalne a na pewno orzeźwiające.
