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.

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.

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

A - a nice one finger of white head. Body is cloudy and a nice golden color.

S - crazy sweet which is not what I was expecting from a Lambic. Candy like pez and banana and watermellon. Not artificial like I normally get with this aroma.

T - very similar to the smell. Almost no tartness. Sweet banana, apple, and sugar.

M - a nice solid carbonated body and medium mouthfeel. A little drying.

O - not what I was expecting but very good. Very sweet but natural. Well done and something I would recommend for anyone looking for this type of beer.
