Süßer Kaufummiantrunk zu dem später Fruchtnoten hinzukommen. Minimale Säure, weiterhin, wenn nun auch geringer, Kaugummi. Zu süß, zu künstlich. 9/8/8/8//8

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2011 On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours hazy golden. Aroma of yeast, orange and a little spices. Flavour mirrors this with the spices slightly more pronounced. Very solid. jtclockwork (16597) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours peach gold with white head. Nose/taste of chamomile, grape skin, citrus, fruit cake, candi sugar, honey and some florals. Sweet. Lighter than medium body. Held up well. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
A: The pour is a clear golden yellow color with a white head that dissipates quickly.
S: The grapes provide a strong fruity component to this beer, but they’re quite sweet; really reminiscent of a sweeter white wine like some Rieslings or Muscats. Candi sugar and spice/herb notes (chamomile and coriander) coming through. A bit dry and some further fruit notes like pears, bananas, and sweet apples.
T: A very sweet beer, again, a lot of this comes from the grapes. The candi sugar provides further sweetness and the fruit esters are present, too. Luckily the flavorings are not overpowering, which is something I was worried about. Very minimal floral hop character, but at least it provides some sort of bitterness.
M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation.
D: I was quite skeptical about this installation of the VE series. I still think this wasn’t exactly the best idea, but at least it tastes okay. Benzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2011
Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas during the three day Stone Event, 16-18 september 2011. Clear yellow color, average sized vast whie head. Smell a bit sour and also some berries. Taste some sourness as well. Average mouthfeel, medium body.

Bomber from BevMo. Pours orange-gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is rather vinous with a touch of citrus/spice. Med body. Flavor is just a tad sour, vinous and even oaky. There is no oak, but it’s oaky. Not very sweet at all, except quite lightly. The whole presence is a bit light, and unlike a thick BSA, but it strongly suggests Flanders sour. Quite nice, and wholly unexpected. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2010
Bottle at ØLbaren Thanks to ??? Clear golden - white head. Toasted, fruity, rubber, candy, spicy, grassy, citrus, grapes, perfumed, sweetness, cammomile. A bit strange - give it brett and maybe some light barrelage and it would work !!! Ratman197 (14838) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2010
Bomber poured a clear gold with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of grapes, pear, apple, candy sugar, light straw and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of straw, candy sugar, grapes,pear and light spice with a smooth lingering lightly sweet fruity finish. Almost an Epic fail! DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle sample at a Vertical Epic tasting at Mastikim. Thanks Dagan. Hazy golden. Spicy and fruity aroma with some white wine notes, light earthiness, a malty hint and a bit of honey. Sweetish flavor, spicy and fruity, with a bit of floral honey, light earthy hints and a drier finish. Medium-bodied. Scopey (14730) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2011
On tap at The Common Table, Dallas. It pours a hazy orange colour with lively carbonation and a thin off-white head. The nose is spicy, bonfire, citrus fruit, and strong chamomile. The taste is caramel, orange, mango, pineapple, sweet white grape, wood, hay and strong chamomile, with a bitter bite towards then. There is a good balance of sweet and sour flavours. It’s really quite unusual, but enjoyable nonetheless.
