Very much tastes like an un-fruited lambic. Delicious.

It has a light yellow color with light effervescence. Deep funk within a medium farmhouse base. Delightful "Sessionable" Sour. It does have a thinner tarter body than many of the guezes or other sours I have been enjoying, but the light tang and body is really nice. It pairs nicely with rye or wheat bread enhancing everything.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange body. Not much of a head. Just a little bit of a thin white collar.

Smell - Ooh. Smells like cardboard. At 2 years old, that's very odd. Smells sweet too.

Taste - Cardboard, sugar, and some sourness. A little bit woody. Cardboardy in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Sweet and heavy for something brewed in the lambic style.

Overall - The more I drink it, the more it seems that the cardboard is just an off flavor, not a result of oxidation.

Smell is typical of a sour but just makes me think of rolling rock for some reason.

One of the better sours I have had in 2014.

Def recommend this one.

Fruit notes, decent amount of carbonation, just the aroma

An enjoyable light sour blonde ale. Perfect accompanying a rich steak dinner or other such offering. Lemony zest mingles with an undertone of barnyard funk. Very well balanced overall.

375 ml bottle sealed with cork and cage. whimpy "pop" as cork leaves bottle neck.
poured into HF wine stem.
vintage 2013.

Appearance: translucent straw yellow bodied beer with almost two fingers of bone white head. The head drops down to a thin cap that lingers the entire drink.

Smell: The beer smells fruity, grainy, and mildly funky. Smells like this might have some acidity to it as well.

Taste: Not much tartness here at all. Sweet and grainy. Fruity notes that taste of golden delicious apples and white grape skins. Apple juice. Some bready and grainy malt sweetness with clover honey. Mild and musty funk; oakiness and slight earthy note. Just a little hint of acetic flavors that acts as a teaser especially since my expectations were that this beer was going to be pretty sour(because it was labeled as anunblended lambic).

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. It feels slightly crisp with creamy carbonation. It even has a little driness in the finish as well. Really really drinkable and it goes down fast. Refreshing beer with enough complexity to keep it interesting.

Overall: I am going to call this beer "almost a lambic". Its very very mild; if you drinking this with the mindset that you are drinking an unblended lambic according to the classification that this beer is identified as. I would almost say this is closer to a belgian pale ale than an unblended lambic or something like a mild gueuze plus a malty saison blended together. All that a side...it is still a really tasty belgian style beer.
