On Tap at Meadowlark in Kettering. Website says retired….but either this is an older keg or maybe it is still being produced.

Appearance: Hazy bordering on translucent gold-orange-color. Very thin white head when brought to the table and this eventually went away with no lacing noted.

Smell: Very strong tart berry aroma – very fruity but not at all sweet. Some tart apple notes as well.

Taste: Sour and tart with strong berry flavors. I’ve had gooseberry before in jam form, but this is different and the gooseberry still comes out. There are other tart and sour fruit flavors as well – with some raspberry and current notes.

Mouthfeel: Dry, light carbonation (a little prickly), with notable acidity.

Overall / Drinkability: I was served this by accident but I decided to be game and finish it off anyway. Very good fruit flavors – this I enjoyed. The tartness and sourness though wears on me as I’m not a big fan of Lambics. I appreciate them for what they are, but it’s not exactly my thing. Still, good aroma and fruit taste, but by the end of the 10oz glass I did not want more.

Blond pour with decent white head. Aroma is funk, hay and grapes"berries. Taste is medium acidic, mostly citric, light sweet berries and grape skin bitterness. Dry bodied and decent carbonation. Nice gooseberry display and very close to a traditional fruit lambic. Another hit from the underrated Mikkeller spontan series.

Pours a cloudy, maize/gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus, sour, pale malt, sweet malt, hint of hops, hint of grass, and a hint of floral. Fits the style of a Lambic - Fruit. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is a noticeable tartness and the dryness level is appropriate. Tastes of sour, fruit, sweet malt, tartness, hint of hop, and a hint of floral. Overall, good aroma, feel, and body.
