Another beer i wanted to try after seeing so many negative reviews. Although, this time i feel that this beer has lived up to the negative hype.

Poured out of a 12oz bottle, it leaves a huge puffy white head. It took a while to recede and in its appearance it reminded me of the head you would get off of an aggresive pour of miller high life (my goto cheap beer).

The beers color is a hazy soapy pinkish-amber.

Smell is sweet-tart.

The flavor is hard to put down, i want to say that it is very bland but it has a very sour and bitter background. Drinkability suffers from this as well, i dont know if its the carbonation or the flavor itself.

In the back of my throat it reminds me of trying to chug ginger ale.

Glad i tried it, but will not be drinking this again.

They are still bottling this???

No resemblance to Lambic in any way whatsoever.

Foul, tired, sweet/tart-fruity thing that is a combo of rotten/partially-oxidized, jammy "fruit" + malt-beverage-ish type horror.

One of the worst beers I have ever tasted, added to the fact that they put the name "Lambic" on the label make this a double disaster brew.

Anyone buying this a second time, please contact me - I was thinking of dumping some adjuvants into a cesspool, & kegging it up, & calling it Oude Bruin Lambic.

Tasted once, & never again other than Dare, or Paying basis.

Cheers! to rinse my mouth out with almost anything else.
