4.15/5  rDev +22.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

This is a 2012 Limited Edition wit lambic. It is difficult to judge as it is both a wit and a lambic, so I will do my best.

A: This is a nice golden color, deeper than a typical wit but about average for a lambic, if not a bit darker. The pour left a thick fluffy white foamy head that lingered for quite some time.

S: The smell is fairly strong. The first thing I detect is strawberry. This then follows with a strong burst of limey-ness for the finish. It isn't complex as compared to a basic lambic, but for a fruit lambic it is more complex than many others (i.e. Lindeman's apple, etc...) which tend to be very one note. I wish the scent had more to offer in the funk department.

T: I wrongly assumed that this would taste fruity based on the smell. I was pleasantly surprised. As a hybrid, it hits the wit style in that it is light, refreshing, and presumably heavy on wheat. As a lambic, this delivers with a nice amount of funkiness while still maintaining the wit backbone.

M: The mouthfeel is pretty perfect. It isn't cloyingly thick and sweet as it maintains the crispness of a wit. The carb level is excellent as well.

O: All in all, this was very pleasant. A nice spin on a summer lambic, and much better than most summer beers available anywhere. It delivers layers of flavor while still being unique and delicious. Hopefully they make it again!

On tap at the Mort Subite pub in Brussels.

Pours a nice creamy 1 finger thick head that fades slowly with nice lacing, hazy blond lemon yellow color.

nose has a sweet candy aroma, light grassy lemon candy, light sour funk, lots of sweet candy lemon like a lemonhead.

Taste is just like the aroma and almost undrinkable it's so sweet! Syrupy, light tartness, so much lemon and candy flavors, light grassy, sitcky and syrupy, with a syrupy finish that brings more candy and lemon.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, very syrupy, esp for a lambic, and even has too much carb,

Overall I would hardly.... no wait, I can't even bring myself to call this a lambic, it's like lemonjuice blended with syrup and diabeetus! This is what I call a tourist beer. After this I couldn't even drink another beer from their brewery and stormed out! I felt like I was drinking a "lambic" from Mexico rather than Belgium.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: pale yellow colour, nice thick head, quite a lot of carbonation.

S: very sweet, peach,hint of lime, a bit strange

T: this is very weird, strange mixture of all kind of things that I can't really pinpoint, Not my cup of tea. Sweet at the beginning, some strange bitterness in the middle.

M: rather thin, slightly undercarbonated, rather dry.

O: really not my thing, strange combination of flavours that doesn't really work for me.

A - a nice one finger of white head. Body is cloudy and a nice golden color.

S - crazy sweet which is not what I was expecting from a Lambic. Candy like pez and banana and watermellon. Not artificial like I normally get with this aroma.

T - very similar to the smell. Almost no tartness. Sweet banana, apple, and sugar.

M - a nice solid carbonated body and medium mouthfeel. A little drying.

O - not what I was expecting but very good. Very sweet but natural. Well done and something I would recommend for anyone looking for this type of beer.
