On tap at the Moan & Dove.
Pours light, foggy amber with orange hilights and small white head.
Smell is sour-patch-kids with an underlying character of hay or wheat.
Taste is like a mouthfull of liquid sour patch kids & pixie sticks laced with a somewhat rank wheat or yeasty underbelly.
Mouthfeel, when I wasn't puckering my mouth in reaction to the taste, seemed ok.
Other than the flavor, which has got to be a love it or hate it thing, it was passably drinkable.
There, I drank it. I opened my mind for a pint and decided this stuff just isn't for me. I've got to drink several more lambics, so maybe I'll eventually develop a taste for this, but as of this moment I find this stuff as close to my concept of beer as a Smirnoff Twisted.

375 ml Belgian flag bottle poured into Cantillon balloon glass. Pours hazy gold with a thin layer of white head that persists through out. The nose is loaded with character. Fresh cut grass and hay come first along with bright lemon zest that cuts through the funk. Speaking of funk, notes of earth and hay linger strongly through out with an obvious tangy ness present as well. Taste starts with huge wave of citric acid, lemon zest, and tartness. The tartness sets the table for the earthy funk. Notes of hay, oak, and cork come through towards the finish with some peppery spice notes. Super complex, different notes come to the front with each sip. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated with light body. Overall, a very enjoyable brew. Super funky with a nice dose of tartness as well.

A - Light haze on an apple juice gold body. Thin white head settles quickly with little-to-no lace.
S - White peach, lemon, green tea leaves, fresh grass, muscat grape.
T - Grapefruit rind and pith, oak, honey, bitter dandelion, lemon, lime zest. Soft and gently complex.
M - Smooth medium frame with a gentle creaminess, and a sessionablely sour finish.
O - Well balanced with a fantastic flavor profile. The quintessential archetype example of the style.
