I heard that this beer is a good starter to introduce yourself to this particular style so looked around and found one that was brewed on 2011. Uncorking it I was hit with a loud pop from all of the carbonation and bright notes of apple and pear on the nose. After pouring it I was able to appreciate its flavor much more. It has bright notes of crisp apple and a slight undertone of bread with a funky kick to it as well. On the palate it has wonderful rich fruit flavor of apple, pear and peach with a sour tone to give it a tangy flavor. Also, there are wonderful undertones of oak and bread all tied together with a funky tang to give it weight. hopefully after I sample other beers in this category, I will be able to broaden my palate and appreciate them more. However, for now I really love it!

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.
