look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a rosy pink golden color. Bubbly head when pouring but it faded immediately. Aroma is of dry, spicy yeast, straw, some funk and faintly floral. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Highly carbonated on the tongue, like champagne. Light, thin body like champagne as well.

Bottle from Tipples poured to a tulip glad. Pours murky orange colored with a bubbly half finger slightly off white head. Beautiful sweet rose aroma, sour cherries, some citrus fruit, sour vinegar notes, dry oak and vinous notes as well. The flavor is big sourness with the rose hips providing a big floral sweetness, some tropical fruit and cherry-like notes, dry oak finish. A bit of yeasty funky Brett influence. Really nice flavor. Pretty full medium plus mouthfeel, heavy for a sour brew, with prickly carbonation. Better than my overall score notes because it is pretty ugly. Recommended for sure. Not sure why everyone is so down on this. If the bottle said Cantillon it would probably be nearing the mid-4's for the rAvg. This is better than the score, which was brought down due to the ugly appearance.

Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Served in my Funky Buddha snifter.

A - White foam quickly settles to a thin collar and wisps, with minimal lace left behind. Murky orange peach juice body.

S - Smells like lambic, but with floral notes and a touch of raspberry that I take to be the rose hips. Lactic acidity, a bit of stone fruit in the periphery. Quite nice actually; I'd probably guess framboise in a blind tasting.

T - The taste isn't quite as strong, as it loses a lot of the 'fruit' flavor. Mostly lactic acidity, slight mineral, a bit of medicinal brett, and a touch of earthiness; fairly middle of the road in flavor balance and mildly evocative of Boon. Actually, wouldn't be surprised if that was the lambic used in the newer batch of these Spontan- variants.

M - Medium body, lower moderate carbonation, and super dry, with that lingering mouth-coating candy vibe. As usual, well-hidden alcohol on these beers; would guess it's 6% lambic more often than not. Some acidity builds, but it's not excessive.

D - The aroma is really unique and compelling, but the flavor is kind of generic for the style; that's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's not a very good value for the price tag. Easily put down a 375ml on my own, but probably won't pick this one up again with a number of better options out there.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured out of a bottle, 2013 vintage.

If you leave a bit in the bottle, you get a fairly clear, golden/caramel colored beer. If you pour in the dregs, it's really cloudy, raw apple cider, in color. There's basically no head, just slight white ring of lace.

The smell, overall, is sour with a hint of floral on top.

Flavor is basically sour with a hint of floral, it's not that it's bad, but we assumed that it would be fruitier, and, as a result, we were not prepared for what we got. The mouthfeel is enough to support the flavor, except there should be more behind the sour in terms of rose.

Overall, wouldn't buy it again. Glad to have tried it. I'd rather just go for a known sour quantity...
