look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
8 ounce fancy glass at Naja's Place for $7.50, consumed August 18th, reviewed from notes
A-Cloudy light yellow color, looks a little like apple juice actually, small 1/2 inch creamy white heard, stuck around for over five minutes, nice retention, small amount of lacing
S-Sweet and sour green apples, small hint of wheat, some tart, Jolly Ranchers, and sugar
T-Did not even believe it was beer after my first sip, I thought it had to be a cider based off its sweetness and candy-like feel, this stuff went down so easy, the apples were luring and provided sweet texture at first followed by some tart that was great as well, loved the taste of this brew
M-Sweet, somewhat tarty, and inviting mouthfeel, body was pretty murky and medium, nice level of carbonation, only wish taste lingered more
D-Could have drank this stuff all night, alcohol was completely hidden and it tasted more like candy than a witbier, went down so easy it was hard to pace myself, not overly sweet, great drinkability
Wow, what a surprise after seeing this around for several months and finally getting around to trying it, truly a great lambic and not too expensive either, think bottles run about five dollars, need to try other beers from this brewey as soon as possible, definitely will drink again, also very recommended

3.71/5 rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
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.

4.33/5 rDev +19.6%
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).

4.41/5 rDev +21.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 11.2 oz. brown bottle served in a stemless, oversized wine glass.
Appearance: Thin 1/2 finger head that fizzles out into a thin ring that stays 'till the end, and it leaves some great lacing. It's a cloudy, bright yellow color.
Smell: It has a simple, very sweet and pleasant smell. A mix of malt with red and green apples.
Taste: The sweet and sour taste is great and something that's not found in any other brew. The sour of the green apples dominate, but it's balanced nicely by a red apple and malt sweetness in the background.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and medium bodied with very little carbonation. It's light and very easy to drink.
Overall: Despite the sweetness on the nose and palate, everything feels nicely balanced, surprisingly. This beer is not cloying at all and doesn't have that candy flavor that turns away a lot of people from these types of fruit beers. It's great, very simple and refreshing. Proof that a good beer is not just about having a thousand flavors crammed into a bottle.
