Okay I've had some great lambics and to me this just isn't one of them.

Poured into a champagne flute at 55 degree (as suggested) this beer pours a rose color. The head is a fizzy mess that disapates faster than a wedding dress on a honeymoon.

The smell of this one is hard to describe. It smells somewhat like flat ginger ale and musty used socks. To me there's just nothing appetizing about what I'm smelling. I have had a little horse blanket in American wilds and in some gueuze/lambics that I've tried in the past so I won't completely slam this one.

The taste is of a tart version of a wine cooler. It really does taste like wine gone bad - aka vinegar. I think it would make a delicious bbq sauce, but a great beer it is not no matter how many people think it is. If you want the sensation of drinking this beer then make some fresh lemonade without the sugar and ice. Let the lemon juice sit for a few days then add some alka seltzer to the mix with a few drops of grenadine and you'll have the 90% solution. At best this is an average lambic.

Mouthfeel is the best part of this beer. The finish is about on track with what I think a lambic ought to be. The mouthfeel is light and crisp. You definately feel refreshed after drinking this beer.

Drinkability is hard to judge. This beer is only 5% yet it took me 2 hours to drink this 750 mL bottle. That tells me that this isn't all that drinkable. I will say that this beer tastes better as you drink more of it. I would judge the drinkability as average to slightly better than average.
