Bottle. Deep clear auburn. Thin frothy head.
Slightly sour aroma. Some caramel and fruit present indicative of style.
A sweet start completes with a tart finish.
Medium body with decent carbonation. Easy to drink.
I rather like this type of brew.

Lambic infusion...what more can be said? Fruity, sweet, refreshing. Really like this beer..highly recommend this beer. Origin stems from the oldest lambic brewery in the world.

On tap at the brewery in Bruges.

Pours a dark red with thick, pinkish foam.

Smell is fruity and a bit tart with some notes of cherries and raspberries.

Taste is tart, but not very, with nice notes of plums, cherries and raspberries. There is also a hint of anise that I really liked.

Mouthfeel is medium, perfectly carbonated.

Overall, an easy drinking version of the style. Not as complex as some of the better ones, but very refreshing and I really liked the anise note.

330ml bottle - a very familiar-seeming brew to the long-standing Duchesse brand available around these parts.

This beer pours a clear, dark red-brick amber colour, with four fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat bubbly beige head, which leaves some dissolving back windshield frost lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells of subtle red wine vinegar, gritty and grainy pale malt, a bit of damp woodsiness, some muddled black stone fruitiness, and a mild earthy yeasty essence. The taste is bready and grainy caramel malt, some aged cherry, red apple, and red grape fruitiness, a sort of musty yeastiness, ephemeral wet woody (vanilla, mostly) notes, and very, very, very understated leafy and musky floral noble hop bitters.

The carbonation is pretty underwhelming in its low-key frothiness, the body an adequate medium weight, and generally smooth, with a nice airy creaminess arising as things warm up a tad around here. It finishes off-dry, the malt and attendant fruitiness still very much in charge.

Overall, this is a rather plain version of the style, with all the expected metrics being hit upon (except for the sourness), sure, but not really in a manner that makes me give more shits than I have already given by purchasing the one. Yeah - not bad, but not worth revisiting either, IMHO.
