On tap at La Morte Subite. Had this as a second beer, which was a good idea. Very light in aroma, taste and body. The head was probably the lightest pile of foam I've ever seen on a beer: one easy slurp and it was gone. Slight aroma of lemons and oranges. The taste is quite lemony, somewhat like a Weihenstephan lager with Wit additives. Light carbonation; this would be a nice thing to drink on a hot afternoon after walking around Brussels. There are better beers to be had, however, so don't stake your trip on this one.

Sold as Mort Subite Lambic on draught at the cafe in Brussels.

Wit like in aroma, flavor, and appearance. Strong precence of peach candy. Citric aroma and finish. Slightly creamy, lactic. plenty of candied sugar sweetness. Not bad.

I like the idea here, but I would really like more dryness. This is simply too sweet to make for session drinking.

Another tasty from the Mort Subite in Brussels. I enjoyed this at Mort Subite while sharing a plate of kip kap.

This beer pours a nicely cloudy straw yellow with a fair amount of carbonation. The beer has a robust head that remains for most of the drinking, leaving plenty of lacing on the sides of the glass.

The bouquet has robust yeast and grains, but lots of nice fruit as well. Lemons, apricots and berries all tickle the sniffer at various times. Almost candy-like at times. This translates well to the taste, as the classic yeasty-powdery taste is supplemented with a lovely, complex fruit mix. The finish has an initial bitter bite, and then leaves a lovely, faint aftertaste of apricots and peaches.

This is a medium bodied beer with great mouthfeel. I enjoyed it immensely and wish I could get some here, but alas, I will have to wait until I am in Brussels again.

Sampled at A La Mort Subite in Brussels, it came out a cloudy straw gold under a one finger thick white head that goes nowhere and leaves lots of lace along the way. Very fruity and spicey nose, with lots of raspberry and plenty of yeast. Light and very prickly mouth. Sweet yeast with raspberry tones define the initial flavor. Not much in the way of hops, there is a definite sour tone. A bit of malt emerges at the swallow. Nice drinking experience.

The colour is apricot-pale orange and cloudy. The minimal foam is white and built of relatively large bubbles.

The smell resembles of sparkling lemonade: Sweet with a clear flavour of citrus fruits and peach.

The carbonation is potent with rather big bubbles. Quite fit for the style, I think.

The first taste that meets the drinker is a rather bitter aroma of marzipan and apricot brandy. Then, a complex taste of sweet almonds, dry cherries, peaches, bitter orange and some yeast emerges. The bitterness is very subtle, but it is present somewhere in there. The aftertaste is slowly decreasing, leaving a fine flavour of apricot.

According to the staff at Akkurat (the fine beer bar in Stockholm, Sweden), this beer is strictly speaking only sold at a Belgian café, but a special arrangement made this exclusive guest appearance in Sweden possible. They also explained this beer as “like Hoegaarden White, but based on a Lambic instead of Witbier. The result was quite different but very attractive.
