Pours rose golden with greenish hue, off-white liquid head, dissipating instantly.
Smell of apple vinegar, some pale malts. Taste is rather acidic, commonly bleak and malty, abit of apples and pears, dry and winy mouthfeel. Low carbonation, boring lambic.

Pours amber, big white head for just a few minutes, reduced to a thick sticky lace and lots of traces.
Smell of candi sugar, low vinegar, ripe grapes, cooked apple, oveerripe citrus, mixed grains, faintly funky.
Sourness delivered in the taste, at least with a short lemon zesty flash in the start. Some candi sugar and sweet grains follow, along with a bit of cidder apple/pear/grape fruitiness. Sourness comes back in the finish, alongside a bit of funk and some decent oak wood notes. Dry finish, some grass, some white grapes and the wood carries on to the aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation.
It goes a bit too fast from sour to sweet and back again, and has some bad malty notes. Otherwise, decent for its price.

Ppurs an amber colour, some bubbles round the edge. Head lacklustre, some cloud. Good lace. Pleasant.

Smells oxidised. Slight funk. But a lot of dark fruit. Some cardboard. Bit of a shame, could be delicious fresh.

Taste is pretty tasty. Some sour notes, a bit of funk. Belgian notes, maybe touch of cardboard but has a late barrel note; some woodiness which is nice but has notes of oxidisation. Pleasant enough overall.

Smooth, some dry notes on the back. Fair texture.

Drinks Belgian but tastes like a bottle shop owner has hung onto it a bit too much. Decent but a bit too stale compared with how it should taste.
