A - Pours a relatively translucent pale amber with a small white head

S - An intoxicating odor of fermented apple juice

T - It's like sparkling apple cider with a little more body and a little bit of bitterness at the end. Just how I imagined it would be!

M - Light-bodied with some carbonation

D - At 3.5%, this is pretty down-able.

My first ever lambic. Such a treat!

A: Golden yellow with a huge fluffy white head.

S: Sweet and sour apples. Some white grape and tartness.

T: Just like green apple jolly ranchers. Not much else to say.

M: Like the peche this one is sweet and coats the mouth with a sugary candiness.

Overall: Below average fruit beer. Seems more like a cider.

A - Poured out a clear, golden yellow color with a one-finger, tan head of foam. It was short lived but did leave some lacing.

S - It smelled of crisp, tart green apple. Not much else but a little sourness.

T - Nice tart green apple flavor with a somewhat sour presence. A touch of grain and caramel.

M - It was crisp, sharp and biting. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a nice "gateway" lambic. There are better out there but this one is nice to share with a newbie.

Reviewed from notes

Mostly clear yellowish golden color.  Lots of sticky white spots of lace with surprisingly nice retention. I'm not gonna lie, this looks nice. 

Smells like green apples, light oak with some earthy dank character in there.  Smells sweet...
The flavor reminds me  of green apple jolly ranchers...  Really sweet, but tart and slightly sour. Pretty sweet, and even the finish is pretty sweet...  

The body is medium, little syrupy, and in need of a bit more carbonation. 
Overall-- not bad. This is probably just behind the cassis in terms of my favorite from the brewery. 

As this warms, the musty funk increases--  and I like it even more.  The price is right, and I'm a fan of the availability...  Not sure if those things "should" factor into a review, but I'm allowing them to knock the "overall" up half a point.  

A: 4

Appearance is gold with a nice foam. Hay this is a Lambic. So rate this as if it was not a traditional beer. Smell is of green apples, nice. The mouthfeel is very strong with bubbles and sits nice on the tongue, lays there slightly. The tastes is of a good green apple, a good old granny smith. Overall this is a Lambic and is nice. May we suggest you mix this half and half with some carmamel porter. Ahhhh, and that is from the Dutchman Hans. Enjoy this lambic.
