3.83/5 rDev +5.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Beautiful clear amber, orange in color with a light thin white head and good retention.
Smell: APPLES! Strong orchard and grassy notes and a little bit of a chemical smell but that could be from the glassware as this was at a restaurant that I had this.
Taste: Tangy-tart sweetness that grips the sides of the tongue that closely mimics biting into a caramel apple including the tanic apple peal. Some chlorine taste as well.
Mouthfeel: Nice sharp bubbles on the front of the tongue, finishing with a nice smooth and almost syrupy feel.
Overall: A good standard lambic ale. I'd recommend this to anyone who wanted to taste a baseline.
Serving type: bottle

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.
Serving type: bottle
