Artificial peach, overly sweet thus cloying. Where are the lambics attributes?
Pass your way. This brewery makes good Kriek, so they know to make lambic. This is not a lambic based beer

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Look: Looks nice, golden, big white creamy head.

Smell: Banana, ripe fruit

Taste: Lambic or instant diabetes? This is so sweet it has nothing to do with beer. Not even a vague sour touch.

This could be enjoyable when served ice-cold on a hot summer evening if you are looking for a lemonade. Ignore this if you expect a lambic. It's not white nor lambic.

On tap at the Mort Subite pub in Brussels.

Pours a nice creamy 1 finger thick head that fades slowly with nice lacing, hazy blond lemon yellow color.

nose has a sweet candy aroma, light grassy lemon candy, light sour funk, lots of sweet candy lemon like a lemonhead.

Taste is just like the aroma and almost undrinkable it's so sweet! Syrupy, light tartness, so much lemon and candy flavors, light grassy, sitcky and syrupy, with a syrupy finish that brings more candy and lemon.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, very syrupy, esp for a lambic, and even has too much carb,

Overall I would hardly.... no wait, I can't even bring myself to call this a lambic, it's like lemonjuice blended with syrup and diabeetus! This is what I call a tourist beer. After this I couldn't even drink another beer from their brewery and stormed out! I felt like I was drinking a "lambic" from Mexico rather than Belgium.

Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma has really sweet citrus notes, banana and apricots. Taste is really floral and sweet at first but also kind of artificial. Finish has a bitter medicinal flavor. Light, effervescent body. Aroma is quite pleasant but it tastes too artificial.

A: pale yellow colour, nice thick head, quite a lot of carbonation.

S: very sweet, peach,hint of lime, a bit strange

T: this is very weird, strange mixture of all kind of things that I can't really pinpoint, Not my cup of tea. Sweet at the beginning, some strange bitterness in the middle.

M: rather thin, slightly undercarbonated, rather dry.

O: really not my thing, strange combination of flavours that doesn't really work for me.
