MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Pours with a short lived, white foam. The beer is a crystal clear brown and quite effervescent. Nose is mouthwateringly tart with sour apples and toffees. The flavor is a mixture of sugary, sweet tea-like notes with a metallic twang in the finish.

Franckg (1546) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2017
Bouteille avec un BB du 20/09/2018. Robe ambre fonce lgrement trouble avec un mince col de mousse blanc et rocailleux. Armes de pommes caramlis, minraux, lambics faible acidit, sucre candi/gomme balloune, miel brun. En bouche, entre agrable de compote de pommes et au sucre brun, citron, bois mouill, abricot. Arrivent ensuite des saveurs moins balances de lambics, raisins rouges, miel et de sucre qui semble artificiel. Ces derniers crent une finale qui rend le liquide lourd et lassant aprs quelques gorges. Dommage car la premire vague de saveurs est bien. Texture huileuse et paisse, corps moyen qui tend vers le haut.

Amber with sweet nose and some honey accents. Taste is honey and sweet sourness with fruity finish. Likeable.

Pleasantly surprised by this. Sweetness in aroma not too dominating. Taste is funky and sour but complexity lost in sweetish aftertaste. Mouthfeel soft but sticky.

Serapac (447) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 20, 2017
Bottle. Brown/tea colour, small off-white head. Aroma mainly apples/cider/calvados. Fizzy. Sweet apple taste. Not at all my cup of tea.

guzzler67 (1686) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2017
Reddish amber appearance with a small white head and little lacing. Tart apples mix with other fruit in the aroma. Earthy, funky, sour flavors smash up against the inherent sweetness of the style. The sweetness does not become too cloying until the aftertaste, where it lingers longer than desirable. Interesting change of pace from my steady diet of IPAs. Thanks to Sloth for the trade.

czar (8823) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2017
UPDATED: APR 8, 2017 pours almost clear dark golden orange with a very small fizzy off-white cap offering little to no retention, or lacing. sweet apricots, pale figs, some caramelized fruitiness, apples for instance, wood barrels - softly bitter tannins; light acidity - some underlying funk; sugar - woodsy candi and powdery stevia; cardboard traces, grass and herbs. moderately low yet prickly carbonation, light body, semi-sweet tart spicy finish. nice faro, not too sweet and preserving a wild character. quite enjoyed this one!

Alcohol, citrus and fruits. Amber and clear, heavy cloying sweetness with medium sourness. Fizzy carbonation. Very good lambic beer.

Bottle with expiry date 22 Nov 2018. Copper colour, clear, no head. Faint aroma, a bit of sauerkraut, brown sugar, green apple. Medium sweet, lightly sour. Medium carbonation. Too sweet, not very interesting.
