A: Pours a light copper color with a nice thick head. Beuatiful belgian lacing cling to the sides. Crystal clear.
S: Screw all you naysayers I think this is a superb smell. I get the overpowering (perhaps fake) cranberry scent. It is subtle enough for me that I pick it up as a back drop of the beer. No hop scent at all and a little sweetness in the nose. The cranberry is just enough to be there but still allows for a little more complexity with the malt. Smell a grahm crakery smell which may be carmel, but then again I dont know if I would call it carmel, somthing different.
T: A sweet beer at first with a hint, Im talking hint, of sourness. Not a true lambic by any means. Missing is the uniqueness of the sourness and the real multidimentional taste of a lambic. What I find though, is a good beer, reminds me of the DFH aprihop (IPA with a mildy enticing fruity background), its a light beer with a mild amount of malt complexity and I dont think any hops. But the hints of cranberry and a weak sourness make it for me, an ideal session beer for a person who doesnt like to drink yak piss beer (read:BMC)
M: A great mouthfeel, highly carbonated but smooth on the palate. Again, not a real lambic but a great starter beer for introducing people to good beers, or perhaps a beer you can put back six easy while watching the game...
D: Superb. Can drink this easy going beer, kinda a mini belgian, all day long.
