tambrico (50) - New York, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Pours a dark amber with a thin head that fades away very fast. Fruity, tart aroma. Thin bodied and very carbonated. Sweetest beer Ive ever tasted. Way too sweet for me. This is the first time I will use the term "cloying" to describe a beer. There IS something alluring about this beer though. Overall I wasnt completely dissatisfied, but the sweetness just overwhelmed everything about this beer to me and thats just about all I remember of the experience.

Pours a very clear copper with a thin white head that manages to leave pretty nice lacing. Nose is of some nice lambic funk with minimal difference from a straight lambic. Taste is much sweeter than straight lambic, though, almost too much if you ask me but not quite. Ive sample sweeter ones in the past so I guess this one gets a "Pass" rating. There is still some nice lambic behind all that sweetness, though. Browned apples impressions. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. Pretty good but Id be hard pressed to say when I would like to drink this in place of a nice gueuze.

Belle faro lambic, moins sucre que ses consoeurs et moins douce que le cidre

birraiolo (279) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2017
Bottiglia da 37,5 cl. Color ambrato con schiuma bianca fine non di grande tenuta. Al naso note dolciastre fruttate. Al palato inizia con un leggero frizzantino seguito da note dolci mielose e fruttate che solo sul finale lasciano spazio alle note acidule del lambic.

Manslow (1417) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 28, 2017
Butelka 750ml. pita w domu. Kolor złoty przechodzący w bursztynowy,klarowne, mocno nagazowane, piana średnia osiada na szkle.Aromat to owoce winne, lekka kwasowość w smaku kwaśne takie jak przy spożywaniu cytryny, no trochę mniejsza i przyjemniejsza łagodzona przez słodycz.. Taki dzikus ale mnie smakuje, bardzo dobre.

Bottle shared. Dark copper pour. Aroma is sugary, some malts and hop. Taste is great, perfect amount of sugar for me, sweet but not too sweet. Interesting style, like it.

Bottle. Amber in colour. Fruity (cherries) and spicy. Very well balanced; less sweet than I expected. Nice sour edge to it. Quite dry in the finish. (2008)

Barwa to bursztyn przechodzący w czerwień, piwo klarowne. Piana jasnopomarańczowa, raczej skromna, szybko opada i zostaje tylko pierścień przy brzegach. W aromacie wyraźna dzikość, stajnia, końska derka, jest wyraźna nuta winna, owocowa kwaśność, przefermentowane owoce. W smaku jest wyraźnie kwaśno, ale też kwaśności towarzyszy też dość potężna słodycz. Zbyt potężna, bo piwo przez to staje się nieco zbyt mdłe, słodyczy jest więcej niż kwaśności. Wysycenie jest wysokie, mocno musujące, co wzmaga odczuwalną pełnię, ale i nieco przeszkadza w żołądku. Piwo smaczne, słodkie i kwaśne (bardziej słodkie), lekko dzikie. Mnie to nie zachwyca.

Fizzy apples, straightforward light medium sourness and fuller medium brown sweetness, not overwhelming, close to zero funk
