4.22/5 rDev +16.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Aroma-Seems to have mainly an apple ciderish scent to me with maybe some toffee. A bit of pear possibly.
Mouthfeel-Finely carbonated, feel some tartness on the sides of the mouth.
Appearance-Brown/amber without haze. Poured to little head which quickly disappeared, but still have fine carbonation bubbles a few minutes after pour.
Taste-Initially get sweetness in the front of the mouth but bitterness along sides soon follows, sweetish/sour all at once and rather interesting. Not sure if as good as a blended geuze but is very good.
Drinkability-Rather, if price wasn't an issue. I'd love to see how much I could get through. This is truly more of an accent piece or initial drink most likely though.
Overall-I will almost certainly purchase this again at some point and am really into lambics just in general. This seems a bit more straight forward than a blended geuze, but I really enjoyed it.

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.
