Bottle from Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, MI. Gorgeous clear ruby colour with a thin white head. Nice sour cherry aroma. Sweet smooth candy taste compliments the underlying tartness, which comes through in the finish. As a "Lambic newbie", this is more to my liking than the Lindemans Gueuze I tried earlier tonight. Less carbonation than the Gueze too, and a nice full mouthfeel. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

Pours a clear orange-red with a tan head and particulates floating in it. Smells candy-ish, sweet and leathery. Taste is sweet and a little sour, it has a candy quality - quite a superb specimen.

sonnycheeba (6561) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep, slightly hazy amber with thin, fizzy white head; extremely short retention and no lacing. Aroma is sour fruit, bread and cereal malts, light floral hops, light yeast, and faint spice. Flavor is sweet malt forward, faint hops, and heavy fruit esters; dry, sweet, wine finish. Light body, carbonation, and warmth.

AdamChandler (5206) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Picked this up at the Lebanon Health Food Store for $5.25. Poured into an Ommegang Glass at cellar temperature of 59 Degrees F.

A - The beer is a dark amber to brown color. Really beautiful. An easy pour generated 3-fingers of off white to leather colored head. It dissipated to a small line of bubbles after 5 minutes.

S - The standard Tart & Sour scent is what hits the nose first. This is followed by wheat and very bready yeast. It has a sort of ice cream scent like mint ice cream. Creamy and sugar along with cream. Very pleasant and not too over powering.

T - Yeah, it’s a very mild sweetness. The sweet and tart notes fade away almost instantly which is disappointing. The wheat taste is the dominant taste in this beer. I’d prefer more sour from a Lindemans beer but it’s not terrible.

M - 50/50 bubbles to liquid on a mouth swish. Lingering candy taste after swallowing. Light and drinkable.

O - This is a solid beer but not fantastic. The price wasn’t too bad. As I finish this glass, the sweetness is starting to sit weird on the palate. If it was a bit more sour, the sweetness wouldn’t be such a turn off.

Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Interesting and good. The nose is sweet and vinous with some notes of oak. The beer is a clear effervesant brown with a fizzy cream colored head. The taste is vinous with some caramel and like oak notes. The body is light to medium with a pinpoint carbonation. The palate is characterized by a nice tart sweetness. Went great with a key lime pie in celebration of pi day.

Enjoyed on mar´12.Brownish amber color,reddish to the light.Off white crown.Good retention.Herbal & floral fragancy,caramel malt & molasse aromas.Sour-acidic sweet upfront,tangerine notes.Mildy malty flavor masked by a gentle sugary sensation.Honey hues.Sparkling light body,medium-high carbonation.

Sugary & citric flavors are incredible well balanced making a beer not cloying at all.Refreshing with an excellent drinkability.I love lambics but I´d always been reticent about the so call "sugar lambic".Now I´ve changed my mind then I will have many more like this.

csaso (2361) - Missouri, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Bottle - average size foamy head, light copper color, sweet fruit aroma, sweet fruit (appleish) flavor with a mild sour finish - my first try of this style, reminds me of a cider with a little bit of a wine kind of mix

3.2
Chudwick (3423) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - MAR 7, 2012
12oz bottle - pours caramel with off-white head and some lacing. Nose is apple and champagne. Flavor is sweet apple and candy. taste is sweet all around. Medium body with sticky texture. I don’t know enough about the style, but it reminds me greatly of cider, but not as sweet and more like champagne. A good apéritif or desert wine.

tom10101 (6297) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle 375 ml [2011]. Pour red brown with a medium off-white head who quickly disappeared. Aroma: Sweet and funky with fruity esters. Taste: Acidic at first (but much less than a gueuze), then it suddenly become sugary. Weird sensation. Overall: Refreshing but too sugary.

3.3
beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark orange color with an whiteish head. Aroma is champagne like, some citrus, subtle funk, cereal notes, caramel and sugar. Flavor is tart and again a little champagne like with some fruity notes of green apple, along with citrus, subtle funk, caramel and sugar notes. The body is light with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty interesting Lambic and not as sweet as some of Lindemans other Lambics.
