Bottle. Light amber w medium white head. Aroma and taste of dried apples, hay, some floral notes, malt w. some sweetness, and the characteristic acidics.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2014
One of the so-called ’capsulekensgeuzes’, the industrial, sweetened and compromized interpretation of a great style; like its congeners, this reminds very little of actual lambic. Clear golden blonde colour, off-white head, sweet aroma, a bit sugary, sourish touch, apple, smooth and somewhat thin mouthfeel, sweet with a lemony acidic touch but none of the lambic funkiness. Completely redundant.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from Nissa, Hebden Bridge. Golden, no head. Has a light carbonation but feels more active than this in the palate. Its sweet taste (and texture to an extent) makes it feel somewhere between a cider and a white wine, with apples certainly involved here. Quite sour in its finish though.

kermis (5694) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear dark golden with a bubbly off white head. Aroma of faro like sweetness, some fruitiness, candy and light mouldy and dusty notes. Flavour is over moderate sweet and moderate acidic. Light medium bodied with light carbonation.

mathieuc (1491) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle shared by JulienHuxley, thanks a lot! Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of sour hay, some green apples and apricots. Taste is lightly sweet, offers more granny smith and is moderately tart. Body is light to medium and carbonation medium to high. Finishes pretty dry so it is not too bad. Overall, yes it is a bit sweet but I at least didn’t despise it as much as my other tasting partners. It is not as bad as let’s say St-Louis Gueuze when it comes to sweetened gueuzes.

chirolante (11) - ITALY - JUL 26, 2014
Una lambic dal forte sapore di limone? Acida quanto basta, ti ripulisce bene il palato!

MarcoDL (2377) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2014
A lambic for starters. It has some sourness and tardiness, but not nearly as much as a real lambic beer. This is boring and watery, especially if you like the real thing.
