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.

Pours an opaque but radiant dark orange, with dense white head settling to a thin ring, with trailing streaks of lace down the glass. Smell: cherry, limeade, hay, barnyard note, oaky, overripe apricot. Taste: sour cherry, lemon segment, soured overripe peach, herbal, oaky, with vanilla, acetic, and hay notes. Medium bodied, sugary beneath the sour and mild funk, then finishing dry with oak and grape skin. Bottled 1/2014. Really nice, balanced approach and flavorful.

Pours a finger of head on a cloudy light straw body.
The aroma is lots of raspberries.
The taste is sour and tart all over the place; raspberry and lemon.
The texture is soft, light and fizzy. Amazing.
An outstanding drink.
