whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Clear reddish-brass colored body and clean white dissipating head. Some light visible viscosity. Waxy lactic aroma with buttery, nutty notes. Flavor is like oversweetened tea with some caramel and honey. Mild tartness fails to provide sufficient balance. Syrupy palate like a very sweet soda. This is pure candy beer. Based on this one limited example, this style serves no useful purpose for me.

equisetum (153) - Kielce, POLAND - DEC 7, 2017
Bursztynowe, idealnie klarowne piwo z dość obfitą, choć nietrwałą drobnopęcherzykową pianą. W zapachu czuć wyraźnie mocno wiejskie klimaty, jest sławetna końska derka, jest trochę siana, generalnie jest dziko. W smaku jest słodko - kwaśnie, ciut podchodzi pod cydr, ale taki wysokiej półki, jest też odrobinkę winogronowo, gdzieś w tle czuć te typowe dla lambika nuty wiejskie. Generalnie piwo jest bardzo przyjemne, nie jest mocno gazowane, może ciut przy słodkie, ale jako deserowe piwo degustacyjne sprawdza się bardzo dobrze.

ALIBALI (2562) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2017
Riecht interessant...nach gebrochenen Laub, gebrannten Mandeln und natürlich Lambik ;)...dazu noch leicht funky heuig. O.K., wahrscheinlich lässt man sich auch hier wieder von der Optik beeinflussen, die sieht nämlich genauso aus wie es schnuppert...leicht trüb und bräunlich oudegueuzey. Der Trunk klar sweety, aber nicht zu aufdringlich, man könnte sagen der Spirit des Lambiks bleibt erhalten. Zusätzlich schmeckt es weiny, kellermuffig, dezent säuerlich und irgendwie ganz geil :). 375ml Bottle aus einem Supermarkt im wilden Belgien...recht günstig ;)...

Nikokaoja (401) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - NOV 29, 2017
29. 11. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled. Aroma is sweet an soury. Amber colour with some head with almost no retention. Taste is surprisinly sweet at start and just eniugh twisted with sourness acid at finish. Very nicely balanced. Aftertaste is the same. Mouthfell is lightbodied with moderate carb. Can be consumed like juice it is really drinkable. I love it.

In some ways this is simple -- it's a lambic sweetened with candy sugar -- but in other ways it's quite unusual. The dry, earthy funk from the lambic is definitely there, but it's evened out by the sweetness from the syrup. It's almost like a fruited lambic, but taking some shortcuts by just adding sugar.

355ml bottle. Pours with a clear amber colo a a small white head. Nose is very fuity, lots of ripe berries and grapes, some decaying and some old balsamico vinegar aromas. Taste is well balanced sweet-sour flavor with a nice dry finish.
