i really liked this one from lindemans, much better than some of their fruited stuff, and a much lighter take on they style than is available from others. its crystal clear after i pour from the capped and corked green glass bottle. radiantly clear really, yeast cake remains on the bottom of the bottle. head is fizzy and white but settles quickly, and there is a real champagne sort of look to it. the nose is only a bit sour, its still definitely blended lambic, no mistake about that, but it hass less of the lactic hotness of others, instead having a light wheat malt flavor and some yeast character other than sourness. its meadowy, springy, floral and very delicate. not a lugging weighty gueuze, but one to really drink up, like a glass of spring white wine, it seems to be the perfect compliment to a chickpea curry, but i can see it working in about a million food contexts. this is a good beer to introduce folks to the style with too, its less caustically acidic but equally refined as the others. i like it quite a bit, and am more excited to crack the bottle of faro lambic in the fridge now too!

This brew pours a golden/yellow color with a huge head that takes a while to disperse. It is mostly clear with heavy carbonation. Lots of yeast floating in the glass when you get down to pouring from the bottom of the bottle.
The smell is slightly fruity and musty. The sour comes through even in the smell.
The taste is sour, wow, is it sour, very plain with a heavy yeast component and sour fruit. Very dry, like a dry champagne.
Overall this is a good Lambic. It is not very complex and it lacks the fruit component, at least it lacks one specific fruit component, that I am used to from Lindemans but overall it is a solid offering. Personally, I would prefer the Lambics from Lindemans that are flavored with apple, pear, peach etc.
