10/VII/21 - 25cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker), shared @ Anniek and Martijn’s place, BB: 9/V/21 (2021-605)
Clear copper orange beer, small creamy white head, stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of strawberry jam, strawberry flavoured ice cream, yoghurt, some diacetyl, a bit of a sickening sweet and sugary impression. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very sweet and sugary start, strawberry jam, lots of strawberry candy, soft acidity, more strawberry jam. Aftertaste: sugary sweet, some lemon juice, strawberry candy, rather artificial, gentle bitterness, hint of real fruits, not disgusting, but not very good either, and way too sugary.
Bottle shared massive thanks to sjogro. Hazy deep red with pink head. Strawberry jam, candies, apple, soft citrus, grassy, a hint of lambic funk. Quite sweet, light tart. Just medium bodied. More confiture than beer, but not as disgusting as some other 'fruit lambic'.
@home poured into a tumbler. Strong strawberry jam nose. Hazy amber brown with a pinkish hue, good creamy pinkish beige head, half-way lasting, heavy lacing. Fruity aroma, strawberry jam/marmelade, candy sugar, bubblegum. Taste heavy sweet, light sourish touch, sugary, strawberries, strawberry jam/marmelade. Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, very sweet and light sourish aftertaste, sugary, lingering sticky sweetness, okay if you like fruity sweetness.
Medium pink head, retreating with some lace over hazy terra cotta to cyclamen beer. Strawberry, strawberry jam, smelling seriously sweet. Sweet-sour flavour, some strawberry, but already more others, elderberry probably, certainly applejuice. Lactic acid, other acids. Finish has a strange, almost chemical streak - the stevia, maybe? Thankfully less sweet than the nose suggested. Light, not all that refreshing - too sweet for that. Decent carbonation. Not that bad, but a true strawberry and apple lambic would have been much nicer.
0.25 l bottle from 'drankgigant.de', best before February 2022. Slightly hazy, ruby with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Extremely sweetish, fruity and a bit artificial aroma of strawberry jam, raspberry and gummy bear. Heavily sweet, minimally sourish, quite fruity and a little artificial taste of mainly strawberry jam, raspberry, gummy bear and sherbet powder, followed by a short, sticky and a little tart finish. Thin to medium body, gently effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. A 'lambic beer with a refreshing kick' is supposed to be something else than this cloyingly sweet alcopop. Even considering Lindemans' sweetened lambics, this beverage isn't worth of carrying the brewery's name.
