ComradeK (1041) - The Vale of Dundas, - JAN 2, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a clear light gold (the E150 colouring apparently hasn’t done a whole lot), with a tiny and rapidly vanishing white head, which leaves no lace. There are some pleasant sour, musty and woody notes in the aroma, but the added apple juice gives an artificial feeling to it. A fairly pleasant sour flavour up front is again spoilt by an artificial apple taste. Some sourdough flavours come through in the middle, with a crisper sour finish. This is not a terrible beer by any means, but I get the sense that it could have been a whole lot better without the apple juice, which is very intrusive, and the unnecessary E150 and E300 additives.

mathieuc (1391) - 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.

Una lambic dal forte sapore di limone? Acida quanto basta, ti ripulisce bene il palato!

MarcoDL (2267) - 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.

A clear yellow / orange beer with a small white head. First thing I notice is there’s no "plop" when removing the cork, the beer is low on carbonation. Taste is at first quite sweet, too sweet for this type of beer. Luckily it finishes more sour and dry.
