3.28/5 rDev -9.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
A- A clear amber color, visible carbonation bubbles that rise up to a small white head that dissipates rather quickly. No lacing to be found on my glass.
S- Not familiar with this style, but I'm not picking up any sweetness from the candied sugar. Funk & sour apples dominate the nose. Smells like Lambic to me!
T- Faint flavors of Brett and then a wallop of sugar and sweetened berries hit you. The aftertaste has some sour apple/cherries and tart lemon, but it remains very sweet as well.
M- Sugary feel on the teeth and tongue. Body feels medium, soft carbonation.
D- I didn't find this easier to drink than Lambic, but the flavors are nice just a bit to cloying for my liking. I definitely enjoyed this much more when it was chilled. It's probably a good place to start for someone looking to try Lambic for the first time. I think a wine drinker may like this as well.

4.41/5 rDev +21.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
Location: Half Time Mamaroneck
Appearance: Amber to light brown in color with an off white to tan well carbonated head. The beer itself is very clear when held to the light. There are some large yeast flakes inside the bottle. Average retention. Decent cling.
Aroma: Sweet in aroma with a syrupy cherry smell. Candied sugars. No hop presence.
Taste: Again the flavors are very sweet from the candied sugars. More fruits announce themselves in the flavor like plums, grapes and a very light cherry. There might be the slightest hint of hop bitterness in the back but it's hardly noticeable. The cherries linger in the end.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel shines. It's a very luscious syrupy flavor that coats the tongue and cheek. Medium body and medium to medium high carbonation hits my throat and tongue.
Notes: Capped and Corked.
