Poured a hazy gold with a finger of bright white head. Bright aroma of tart green apple.

Moderate carbonation and a somewhat light, creamy mouthfeel. Sweet apple and hints of honey up front with a lingering lemon/apple tartness on the finish.

Pleasant, tasty, and refreshing, but not quite as complex/balanced as their Framboise.

After the removal of the lid, an immediate smell of apples, cigars and hints of musty basement are immediately noticeable. Following the cork being removed, instantly, the smell of pungent green apples overcomes the senses. When the beer is poured properly, when stored and kept at cellar temperature, produces a goldenrod, orange highlighted brew, topped by a 1.5 finger head. This eventually dissipates and leaves behind a thickly laced cap.

A light and fruity, bubbly beer with carbonation akin to that of a fine champagne. When consumed, it produces a warming sensation in the back of the throat. Sweet on the lips, highly carbonated on the tongue, and it tastes of pungent apples, with a little bit of funk and hints of wet hay as an afterthought. The sour and sweet are well balanced, and the sweetness is not that of an artificial syrup.

Overall, anfantastic beer for peoplenwho are not a fan of bitter hops in their drinks. Excellent post-nosh brew.

A- Hazy golden, nicely formed head

S- Strongly sweet, strong apple flavor, with a tinge of sourness

T- Very sweet and apple like initially, followed by a sour flavor. Initially, the flavor is almost overwhelmingly apple flavored.

M- Not too heavy, and not too carbonated.

O- A great example of this style, but not my first choice of a beer, since this isn't my favorite style. Great if you like a fruit beer, though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Hazy, yellowy gold with a thin creamy white head that settles to a cap with solid spots of lacing.

S - Golden delicious apples, very sweet, apple pie with cinnamon, sugary apple flavoured lollies.

T - Really sweet, kind of artifical apple flavour but not in a bad way, balanced nicely with a funky tartness.

M - Light body with an appropriately high carbonation.

O - Clearly not the most authentic of lambics but it is very refreshing and bloody tasty. Give it a shot.

This beer has a clear golden body with a bit of nice white head with good retention.A bit of spotty lacing clings to the outside of the glass. The aroma was not as sweet or cloying as the framboise. It gave me hope that maybe this would not be the sweet mess that that beer was. Some green apple and very mild funk. The flavor was like a melted green jolly rancher. Sweet, sour apple, not very appealing. Mouthfeel was way too heavy and carbonation was too low. Interesting beer, but it was really just not at all my preference. Way too sweet, almost like sucking on a hard candy.
