Skunky up front, then turns into a fruity aroma. The appearance is medium amber and clear. The flavor is mildly sour, with apple juice and raspberry in there. Good, very different from most other beers and ales, but the green bottle detracted from the score, would have been much better in a brown bottle.

Pours dark and clear golden with a low head. Aroma is apples. Flavor is sweet and sour apples with a hint of vinegar. Very interesting.

reggiedunlop (3709) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pours an amber/lt. Ruby color with a medium lt. Tan head...nice retention. Aroma hints of sour cherries and leather with underlying sweet candy sugar and funk. Flavor is much sweeter than the aroma suggests...dominated by light candy sugar but not so sweet that its sticky...slight sour notes, hint of caramel and funk. Mouthfeel is light with a sweet and sour finish that drys out into mild funk. I like it!

This is not my style of lambic and this is not the best example of its style either. Too sweet for someone like me.

pushkinwow (2758) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
375ml bottle 2010. Light amber, small bubbles that disappear very quickly, off white head. Bit sweet, some funk, white sugar and tang. No carbonation, incredibly smooth and easy to drink, almost apple cider like - blend of sweet and tang, very refreshing with a good long finish. Worth trying.

Beerdedone (3381) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a short off-white head. Aroma was sweet and slightly sour with sugar, fruit, lemon, wild yeast, and funk. Taste was sweet and sour with apples, sugar, a bit of caramel and a touch of tartness with a dry finish.

humlelala (1374) - DENMARK - AUG 16, 2011
(37.5 cl bottle from Carrefour March @ Saint-Cyprien) Pours a clear amber with medium, white head that lasts but doesnt leave any curtains. Aroma is metallic and tart with notes of stomach acid. Taste is very sour and unpleasant to me. Oily on the palate, medium carbonation with a full, sour body and a sour finish. I had to pour it but its most likely because I dont appreciate the style. Girlfriend says: "it tastes better than it smells but its not really very pleasant with this strong sweetness followed by a strong bitterness."

Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Amber pour with a bubbly off white head. Mildly sour finishing with a sticky sweetness. There is the lactobacillus sourness, but not much else in the way of funk. The underlying sweetness might be covering some of that up.

Rasmus40 (19627) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2011
Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and moderate sour. Flavor is quite sweet, moderate sour and moderate acidic. Dry and moderate acidic finish. Gets a little sugary, but all in all a nice faro. 100811

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.
