Found this bottle at a bottle shop in Seaside, FL while visiting the annual wine fest.

Looks like a standard lambic; off gold, murky body. slight head disappears fast but some ok lacing

Smells tart: candy apple and some slight tropical scents: dank peach and some funky straw

Taste: tart apple initially but the rose hips really tie it together for a floral but subdued finish. Some straw mid to end taste leads to to a dryer finish. I love the subtlety of this beer; just beer it builds to be really sour, it gets reeled back in. Makes me want to drink a lot of them on a hot day.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied with slightly less carbonation

Overall: I would love to have a few of these fresh on a hot summer day. As is the case with most Mikkeller beers, I can't justify the price to buy in bulk. This is my 2nd favorite "Spontaneous" beer I've had to them (Raspberry has been my favorite). Overall a solid selection.
