look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives relatively clear and lemon colored; a very limited head and just a few strands of lace

Smell: Lemon tones dominate the aroma, with some barnyard funk and cheesy tones

Taste: Very much a table beer flavor profile, with tart lemon tones, white wine grape and a very dry finish

Mouthfeel: Light body with low carbonation

Overall: Really good for what it is but it is important to note that it is not intended to be a Lambic - it is intended to be a table beer

A nice light and airy lambic for anytime while in the mood. The nose is light and pleasant with accents of perfume, vanilla, flower field, hay, yeast, lemon, pear and oak sourness. The taste has a tranquil sour finish that goes nicely with the bouquet of lighter flavors that were in the smell and a punch of lemongrass. Has a wet wine like consistency in the body.

750ml capped bottle into Night Shift stemware. Thanks to Jeff for this one. Shared with schen9303.

For an American "lambic", the nose on this is out-of-this world. Hints of lemon, hay, barnyard funk, wet wood and aged, stinky cheese. Phenomenally ripe and funky. Super aromatic too as I get a whiff of this as soon as I start to pour. Beer opens with hints of lemon zest, tart white vinegar, white grapes and champagne tartness. While the barnyard is readily apparent on the nose, unfortunately, it isn't on the palate. There's some hay and porcelain in the back but mostly, this is just incredibly tart with a sourness that builds and builds until a puckering, biting-on-a-lemon finish. Feel is light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively on the palate and puckering going down with a filmy, lingering aftertaste.

This is a little intense for me. Lambic to me is soft, subtle. Sour, but only to the extent where it showcases and complements the funk, barnyard and other flavors. This is just too sour for its own good.

This one pours a light orange color, slightly hazy, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like lemon candy, grassy funk, stone fruit, oak, and hay.

This is light and delicious- sparkling and refreshing. There's a lemony and peachy fruity funk to it, with a bit of grassy and herbal funk- sort of hay-like, feels organic. There's a touch of oak and light white wine.

This is light bodied, crisp and clean, with a good level of carbonation.

This is awesome stuff. So light, deceptively simple, and so drinkable.
