A: The beer is slightly hazy pale light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a small collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of apples are present in the nose—these mostly seem like apple juice and not like the apple Jolly Rancher aromas I've seen in other fruit lambics.
T: The taste is similar to the smell except that it has a light amount of sweetness along with faint bits of sourness.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather pleasant to drink and the apple aromas and flavors don't seem to be artificial.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottle: decent 330mL brown bottle, bright and traditional Belgian farmhouse-style label.

Appearance: cloudy bright yellow straw in colour with initial fizzy carbonation that drops back to sporadic fine bubbles. A half-centimetre head disappears reasonably quickly, leaving a ring around the glass. Decent lacing.

Aroma: really quite pleasant - a combination of sweet apples and malts.

Taste: this stuff is fantastic, if a little too sweet for my palate. Again those sweet apple flavours come through, but this time there is a tartness as well. Some wheat and mouth-filling malts hang about too. Fantastic.

Aftertaste: the wheat and malts carry through better than the apple, funnily enough. There is a pinch of sourness in the back though. Overall, very nice and extremely drinkable.

Mouth feel: moderate body which is quite smooth and filling. Lower to moderate carbonation, which suits this lambic perfectly.

Overall: this is only the third lambic I have had to date. The other 2 I found to be a bit of an acquired taste as they were so different and so sour. This one has a good combination of sweet, sour, tart and a malt-driven smoothness. Very nice, even at AU$95 a case (2013).
