On tap in a Timmermans flute like glass.
A - Pink as one would expect it to be. It looks somewhat like punch you'd expect to see at a prom just without the sherbert floating in it.
S - The smell is lightly of straberry but it's not strong. Not much else.
T - I didn't much like the taste. There is enough alchohol that the strawberry feels like it's trying to mask and overpower any taste that may come through. It reminded me of medicine. It wasn't terrible but I can't say I enjoyed it that much.
M - Light and high carbonation.
O - Lambics are not my usual thing so take it with a grain of salt but I don't think this is something I'd go for again.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle: a standard 330mL brown bottle with an old-school Belgian label. Purchased from Leura Cellars.
Appearance: pours a hazy amber-pinkish with a natural brown tinge. A fairly creamy one-finger head drops fairly quickly to a patchy cap, limited lacing.
Aroma: quite a sweet strawberry note - natural strawberries, not that awkward artificial smell. Some Belgian lambic yeasts and earth notes manage to balance the sweetness out.
Taste: follows the nose quite closely - a lovely natural strawberry with earth and Belgian wild yeasts. Very refreshing indeed.
Aftertaste: a lemon citrus tartness joins the strawberry on the finish. Very nice.
Mouth feel: a moderate body with light- to- medium carbonation.
Overall: quite a nice lambic - very natural strawberry fruits that aren't as overly sweet as some, being balanced with earth malts and lemon citrus tartness. The price being over AU$130 a case of 24 (2014) is a little prohibitive however.
