Sample (about 10 cl) from the tap at Akkurat in Stockholm, Sweden, in November 2005.

Called Bink Reuss 2003.

Hoppy beer, not like a lambic at all.
Missing the clear sour taste that symbolizes lambic, may it be sweetened perhaps?
Lots of hops as well, not something that is characteristic in labics either.

It's nice though, very nice, just not what I expected when I heard it was a lambic.

Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers The Festival 2014 held at Crafted in San Pedro, CA.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and honey aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, honey, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with solid sour qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

This beer is a blend of blond beer with 3 years old lambic from 3 Fonteinen (and not a witbier as listed).
It has a good yellow color, slightly opalescent, and a beautiful white and creamy head, with a lot of laces. Good appearance.
In the smell a light hop, but resolute in the same time.
At the taste, a very hoppy start, with some sourness of the lambic behind.
Very drinkable, due to the generous hopping.
Interesting idea, lambic and hoppy beer... Good.
The aftertaste is light bitter again, well balanced with the sourness.
Really interesting.
