From the 2011 batch.

A- Pours a fairly hazy, deep golden in color. Small, off-white head that doesn't stick around long. No lacing due to lack of a head.

S- Fairly tart right up front, with a good dose of citrus. Middle of the scent turns toward a more oak focused tart flavor. Tart but not too sour overall.

T- Pretty much follows the scent to a tee. Starts with a moderate level of tartness, then moves toward a more grainy and oak flavor profile. Grainy, but there is still an underlying tartness throughout the middle of the drink. A dry, tart, and oak focused towards the end with a bit of lingering tart fruitiness.

M- Body is light and fairly highly carbonated. Pretty easy to drink, with even the tartness not holding you back.

Really just a decent sour. Nothing too special, but all the flavors and qualities of a good lambic are there in varying degrees. For the price tag of $10-12 it's not bad, but more than that, and you might as well use time and effort to get the Belgians.
