Kronebryg (1124) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2011
25 cl. btl.: Label said 4,2 %!?!? light head and very little carbonation semidark golden. Nose with apple, lemon curd and marzipan. medium body with some sweet length.Taste with sweet apple cider and a little sourness int aftertaste, orange confit.Not a typical lambic - but good! Especially after some time in the glass where the sweetnes withdraws a little.

Sweet fruity aroma. Clear dark orange color with a small white head. Sweet beginning that fades slightly but also quickly gets tart after the initial sweet.

Kristall-Knig (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2011
Dieses Faro steckt in einer verkorkten 0,375l-Flasche. Ein weiweinartiger Geruch mit einer Ahnung nach Apfel macht sich breit. Der Geschmack s-suerlich, apfelwein-betont. Das Basis-Lambic kommt noch ganz gut zum Zuge. Ein schnes Faro, das prima ber die Zunge geht.Test vom 14.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

PapaSkeetSkeet (1009) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Disappointing. Pours a shimmering amber-brown. Aroma is tart barnyard, slight caramel. Flavor is sweet like the other Lindemans, excepting the gueze. A big sweet sour caramel that could almost be fruity. Underneath it is a nice barnyard funk, tart and horsey. I feel like Im missing out on my first example of this style.

onceblind (8200) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2011
On tap at Cheeky Monk in Denver on 7/30/11. Copper hued, with slight haze and a small creamy head. Smells like oak and light lemon citrus. Deep sour aroma. Not pungent, just complex and not easily figured out. Flavor of creamy vanilla yogurt over a sour apple, with a little extra sour at the finish, light fruit like apricot in the middle as well. Pretty sweet and creamy, with a delightful sour fruit twang.

reebtogi (5945) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2011
Poured from 375mL bottle amber with short lived white head and no lacing. Aromas of yeast and caramel. Taste is quite sweet initially with a very mild hop bitterness at the finish. Body is light and carbonation is lively.

Spelt (232) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Aroma brings some funky, sweet yeast notes with a little carmel apple. Very clear with a tea-like red/brown color. Very short-lived thin white head. As intended, sweet but with a nice sour balance as the taste progresses. Again some sense of a dry green apple behind the sweetness. Despite the upfront sugar, still manages to finish rather dry. Rich prickly carbonation. A fine dessert.

Amber with a white head. Smells fruity and tastes fruity like candy. It is overly sweet.

355ml bottle, my last unrelated style, hizzah! Pours a deep amber golden with a small frothy off white head. Aroma is sharp and fruity, a bit vinous, a touch of vinegar, a nice funk and dark fruitiness. Flavor starts great, sharp and funky, tart and dark fruits. Towards the finish the sweet sugar takes over and it still has some funk, but its like the dark fruits were just dumped with sugar and it makes for an easy but slightly boring finish. A slight grape sticky sweetness lingers. Medium body and a soft but prickly carbonation. Interesting beer, I enjoy a lot of the aspects of it
