Shared by TurdFurgison the other night. Thank you, Eric. I'm reviewing this as an American Wild, rather than a true unblended Lambic.

A hazy straw yellow with a dense, white head with mild lacing, this looks pretty decent. Straw, grass, hay, a little sugar, white wine and a definite cidery aroma, this smells sweet and has some light fruit character, particularly white peaches. Mildly musty and sulfury as well, and as it warms up, it takes of a definite fart-like character. The palate opens tart, scrumpy, mildly cidery and very white-wine like. Not very funky, this reminds me of Batch 1 of Brute. Clean sourness, mild sharpness and with just a hint of acetone in the back, this beer has a medium-light body and a rather high level of carbonation. Drying on the finish with straw, funk and a little fruit, this is a nice, vinous wild ale.

Despite the flaws I've mentioned in my review, I felt this beer still worked, which is why my scores are a little higher than you'd expect from the review itself.
