Tonight is rather warm here in east Flanders and it really is getting to be Lambic time, which I’ve been waiting for all year. So to the beer! Rose orange clear with faint pink-beige medium lasting head and a nice finr lace curtain left on the glass. Excellent delicate but strong aromas including sour and sweet black currants, boiled lollies, bubblegum, banana and those candy cigarettes you used to get in the 1960’s. Palate is clean, crisp and biting but not too sweet or sour for me. Soft refreshing mildly sour finish and sweetish aftertaste. As radiomgb says - ’tastes real good’!.Definitely one for mum but I could easily knock back a half dozen on a night like this. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2002

Strong artificial cassis aroma. Red color, pink frothy head, nice lace. Sweet, very cassis, not as bad as expected but where is the oak? Sweet finish. My wife loved it. DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2002
High fruit smell. Rose coloured. Sour, sweet, tart and crisp. Refreshing. Pretty good. daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2002
Deep red color, big pink head, good lace. Minty berry aroma, slightly tart. This interesting slightly minty taste carries through in the body and flows into a slightly tart palate. Fairly good brew.

red-amber colour, big head, aggressiv blackcurrent aroma, candy-like, very sweet with a strange sour finish - not for me shorlin (721) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - AUG 29, 2001
Nice sour beer, where you can taste the fruit
and the lambic nature without too much sweetness.
Thought the palate was a little weak. Expected it
to jump out and grab me a little more. Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2000
Is it just me or are Mort Subite’s fruit beers underrated. They’re not Girardin, but I think with the moderately assertive tartness they make a much better introduction to lambic than certain more popular, but much sweeter examples.
