750ml bottle poured into my cantillon glass .

A - Poured with a good white head which then dissipated over time to reveal a cloudy apricot colour liquid.

S - A funky sour smell . I get a nice apricot smell.

T- Insanely sour on the first sip but this really grows on you with each sip thereafter. I nearly cant taste any apricots because of the sourness

M - Very smooth mouthfeel that is very dry.

D - for me à little bit to sour , but its à awesome brew

Appearance: muddy light golden brown, with a small white head, thick, broken lace, and a modest scattering of foam on the surface.

Aroma: Tart aroma of vinegar, sharp cheese, sour hay, and earth. While this sounds unappealing, it is not, somehow.

Taste: Profoundly sour, puckering, and astonishingly dry. Somewhat like lemon juice, and white wine vinegar, with earthy notes thrown in. Nonetheless, the reaction to this cornucopia of typically unappealing flavors is to take another sip. The finish is very, very tart, with a ghostly herbal hop presence. The apricot notes are present, but quite subtle.

Mouth feel: Smooth, very soft, pleasant, almost unexpectedly so,

Drinkability/notes: Like blue cheese, most definately an acquired taste, but once acquired, there is a profound attraction. A beer and a style that must not be missed. A friend commented that is very much like a Brut Champagne. Discarding one's preconcieved notions of beer is the best way to experience a lambic for the first time.
