Pours a crisp amber, with a thin cap of off white soda like head which disappears quicker than it came.

While pouring, initial aromas reminder me that it was a green bottle. That soon faded into fruity notes, mainly Apple. Upon further examination, dusty, musky, very woody , tart apple and a bit of vinegar at the end. Finishes sweet. Very interesting, and balanced, great other than the vinegar smell.

Pretty darn sour. Strong notes of old oak, Apple and something a bit minty. Pretty solid flavor. The vinegar is much less prevelant here.

Moderate to sweet here. Very little carbonation on the tongue, but the sourness provides all the mouth needs.

Not the best representation of the style, but a good buy when you have limited other options.

Poured into a tulip a hazy/cloudy dark golden color with one finger of bright white head. No lacing but a good ring around the top. The nose is strong. A musky aroma. Sour apple, white grape, lemon and oak seem to be the most obvious but a little wheat and a little bit of bread. The taste is a wonderful sour and sweetness. Tart big lemon and sour apple. White wine and a burst of sweetness. Very dry finish. Perfect amount of dryness for the style. The mouthfeel was light, crisp and had champagne carbonation that give an added bite. Overall a very nice lambic with good sour notes and a dry finish. Good price for the style too.

Some serious off-flavor from the bottle... plastic almost. It doesn't suck but it's off-putting.

On draft. Some rubber and plastic in taste that is really unfortunate. Smells like and really should be a decent budget gueuze but the off flavors make it marginally bad. Never had from bottle, hopefully a lot better in bottle.
