Pours a lighter transparent yellow with virtually no head. The nose has a lighter musk and cheesy funk. I bit of sourness up front, apricots are rather strong, notes of citrus. The taste has sweetness up front, peach and green apple, a light rindy funk and maybe a touch of musk. More apricot floavors and a light sourness in the fnish. The body is light, the feel is creamy, low carb and lightly dry.

Sampled July 2010 at De Heeren van Liedekercke
The beer arrives from the tap with a flat, still looking, hazed, yellow-copper color. The beer is somehow sweet smelling with a sharp strawberry like finish. Other notes of malty crackers, an apple like note, some oxidized grain, a light lactic acidity, a caramelized something-or-other (almost like old grilled meat at times) as well as some musty yeast notes are all noticeable in the nose.

The beer is served on the warm side as this is still very hot and the cellar here has been warming up. The beer tastes nicely lactic and tart, which engulfs the palate on the first sip. The beer finishes with an oxidized apple character as well as some pear like flavors. The beer is light bodied, but still manages to have some texture to it. The acidity manages to wipe the palate clean quite quickly though. This is only softly acidic, though the lack of carbonation does tend to mute the sourness of Lambics. Musty Brettanomyces flavors, a touch of urea and a musky, sweat dried blanket note are quite apparent in the finish of some sips. There is some astringency and bite in the finish of this beer too. Despite being a little warm, this is still quite nice and refreshing.
