Deep goldenrod with barely a whisper of foam. 3.75
Orange blossom honey, touch of cider vinegar, and slight wine cellar floor. 3.75
Rock candy sweetness, slight yellow apple skin, hints of white balsamic, vague cheesiness, slight port barrel and maybe some herbs. 3.5
Almost medium (due to residual sugars). 3.5

3 years past date, but that shouldn’t matter with a lambic, right? Or at least I’d hope, but any Brett character is buried by an avalanche of sugar. Even the apple notes, which I’d put down to Belgian esters, are actually - apples, 15% juice. Even if it were lively, that’d be something in a champagne kinda way, but this is surprisingly flat. I don’t know if it’s the beer or the style, but basically alcopop. 3.5

Clear amber color with a bit of light beige head. Aroma is malty with some Belgian sugar and a hint of balsamic vinegar. Taste starts sweet with a bit of caramel, malt and sugar. Medium body and carbonation. For a sweet lambic, it's quite good. Not overly sweet and it also has a rustic feel to it.

On tap at the Mariner Inn (aka Six North) in Stonehaven Scotland.
Deep, dark amber body with a very good head.
Very good feel: near medium body and medium carbonation.
A little funk and tart in the nose
Flavor: very different frm the aroma. Still some tart but much sweeter than tart. Lightly spicy with hints of cherries and other soft ripe fruits.

O: as per style, a touch too sweet for my taste but still much enjoyed.

This same beer was given an alias for the Brussels’ food month and marathon in 2012. They were calling it “brusselicious” and even bottled it under that name. Each runner received a free bottle. I just got around to drinking mine. It pours with about two fingers of head with a very spread out white lace that sticks around indefinitely. It has a very sweet followed by sour nose. I loved the flavor. It is very similar to the smell. It is almost like grape and apple. It has a very thin feel and is very easy to drink.

This one pours a small head, with a very nice amber-copper-tangerine colour. Smell of vinegar, apples (cider), wood. Sour and a bit funky. Not much carbonation, and maybe too light in the palate. Taste of cider, vtoo much sugar, but it keeps some sourness and vinegar notes. Good, though I'd always take a lambic instead.

A: amber/apple juice colored, big bubbles and no head.

S: little bit of sour Brett, minerals (iron), apple juice.

T: sparkling apple cider (Martinelli's), faint suggestion of sour yeast, sweet graham cracker-y finish.

M: medium body and carbonation, syrupy finish.

O: ok, pretty much tastes like carbonated pre-school, I feel like I should go take a nap on the floor now.
