Picked some of this up for my wife and I to enjoy on our anniversary. She loves fruity lambics, and I will never turn one down.

Poured my allotment into a flute glass. Pours a clear pale orange/gold with a large white bubbly head on top. A nice looking beer. Nice tart nose. Big apple notes, fresh from the tree. Mild funk noted - very muted.

Crisp and bubbly mouth. Drinks spritzy and refreshing. A nice beer to toast with. Tart green apples. Sweet juicy flavor. Light tart finish. Not cloying and not too funky. A nice balance of tasty goodness here. I dig it, and my wife loved it. I could see this being a regular in the warm months, and would make a nice alternative to cider in the fall!

This brew pours a cloudy brown/yellow with a fluffy off white head, some of which sticks around on the top of the brew until the end. Good lacing and strong carbonation.

The smell is apples, bubble gum sweetness, tartness, sweet malts and funky yeast.

The taste follows the nose with apples bubble gum, a heavy sweetness with a tart sour candy taste. If there are hops in there it is hard to taste them, this brew is both sweet and sour.

The mouthfeel stings with sweetness and carbonation. The carbonation fizzles so much it is hard to swish this brew around in the mouth.

Overall this is a solid fruit Lambic, the fruit in this case being apples, is there in abundance. This is a sweet, refreshing brew which will go down well on a hot summer day. I don't think I could drink to many of these in a row without something a little bitter in between in order to balance out the sweetness but the sour helps to balance the sweetness and this brew is well balanced between sweet and sour.

Poured from a bottle into a flute, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, yellow-gold coloring with a steady flow of carbonation and a frothy, light, bright white head that forms a sparse surface coating as it settles. Aromas of apple tart and sweet, with some subtle grassy highlights. Flavors are more richly sweet than the nose leads you to believe, with a tart, candy-like apple sweetness blended with hints of a roasted apple sweetness. Light, crisp, and effervescent in mouth, the beer has a tangy sweet aftertaste. Light, crisp finish with a subtle tartness lingering behind.

355ml bottle poured into a tulip

A- Pours a hazy golden color with little carbonation, one finger of white head that goes away fairly quickly, little lacing

S- Sweet green apples with a touch of sour

T- Pretty sweet green apple, touch of sourness

M- Fairly light, smooth, light carbonation

O- Very nice tasting beer, bit too sweet and not sour enough for my liking though, could easily confuse it for a cider
