Bottle bier huis ossett. Dark amber colour shorlived head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Taste is very sweet. Start followed by tart sourness mainly apple apple peel favours. Medium body low carbonation. I liked this the sweet and sour balance in the flavour works well easy to drink.

JulienHuxley (2514) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold pour with generous white foam. Aroma of apple pie, spicy and fruity, something smells sour but not in a typical lambic manner, lemony/apple sour aroma, a bit strange. Taste is quite mellow, sweet but not overly so, very light sourness, like a nice fruit beer actually. Palate is light, medium carbonation. Not bad!

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2013
375 ml bottle in the Begijnhof. Lemony nose, light grass/dust, some caramel, sugar. Orange amber color, clear, with lace and light but persistent bubbles. Sweet and tangy, lemon, some light lambic funk and leather but not much, a bit lactic. Certainly not all that serious, but pretty tasty and quite drinkable. Good lemon flavors.
